RoboFab and Studio 5

Can anyone confirm that RoboFab is built into studio 5 for mac.

I tried this very simple code and it errored out.

from import CurrentFont
font = CurrentFont()
print font

perhaps it is left over 4.6 code that is incompatible or something. I dunno. Could really do with getting my head around this stuff.

RoboFab is not built into FontLab Studio 5. You need to download and install it from

We have plans to integrate it into a later version of FontLab Studio.
