FontLab and Arrow Key Adjustments


I am currently use FontLab 5.1.4 on Mac OS Yosemite. According to the manual and my preference settings, I'm supposed to be able to move selected nodes with arrow keys by one unit per "click." However, when I try to just tap an arrow key nothing happens. The nodes will only move if I hold down the arrow keys, which then they move appropriately. However, the necessity to hold down the keys is preventing me from moving them 1 unit at a time. I need to be able to just tap the arrow keys. Holding them down makes the nodes move too quickly. I have scoured the preferences, menus, the manual and internet for a solution, but to no avail. Any ideas?

Stange rendering errors


Hi, I was hoping to get some help with some bizarre problems.

#1- "w" doesn't appear until struck twice in illustrator. But only when it is the first letter in the text box.

#2- The lower counter on the ampersand appears filled when illustrator is zoomed in. This appears to be related to the character's optical size on screen, not the specific zoom level.

#3- a few characters display little hairlines at small sizes.

I'm frankly stumped. Has anyone seen any of these before?
