New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm trying to make use of FontLab's ability to run a Python script when a font is opened, the open.py that's located in the "System" Macros folder but I'm unable to get things working.
As a test, in the "System" Macros folder I have an open.py that contains:
print 'font opened'
...and a save.py that contains
print 'font saved'
...but only the save.py is working. I've tried opening fonts from the file menu and by double clicking a VFB but I get nothing. Is there something else I need to do? I've tried this on two computers, with both FontLab 5.0.2 and 5.0.4 for the Mac.
