hey guys

I am quite new to fontlab studio and i am facing this weird problem.

Everything was working fine until one fine moment when i am working on my Y the guides started behaving crazy. i can no longer right click on them and move them to my desired location.

And also when i am trying to overlap some masks they are not getting overlapped properly i mean some weird white spaces are appearing(i have attached an image)

Please help me

Cheers

If you are on a PC right-click will bring up a context menu. To move them use left-click and drag. Also you may have inadvertently locked your guides in the Editing Layers Panel.

Make sure your contours are all going in the same direction. Mixing contour directions will give strange results when removing overlaps.

Gotta be Postscript-flavoured, then. Unlike TrueType outlines, they tend to XOR each other out. Operate "Remove Overlap" on Y?

The guide layer got locked by accident i guess. But the overlapping problem persisted. I had to do it again :(

If you reverse a contour an even number of times, you end up with the original contour direction ;)

Did you bother to count them all, Jens? :)

No need to. replies_total - replies_nonthanking = replies_thanking = 44.
