FontLab version 126.96.36.19979»
2 November 2018
Version 188.8.131.5279 fixes a few issues on top of 184.108.40.20678:
- All composite glyphs (including those where the source glyphs contain images) now appear in the Font window glyph cells, in the Layers & Masters panel and in the Elements panel. The Element Frame is shown around all components if View > Element Frame is turned on.
- The checkbox Preferences > Glyph Window > Highlight nodes on alignment zones works correctly now. Previously, the highlight (pale gray rectangle superimposed over a node) appeared regardless of this setting.
- Scaled image elements retain their scaling in OpenType+CBDT fonts
In FontLab 6.1, we restarted the free 30-day trial period. If you’ve tried FontLab before, and your trial expired, you can download FontLab 6.1 and enjoy it again for a month!
Backwards compatibility note: If you save a VFC file in FontLab 6.1.x, you might not be able to open it in 6.0.x (definitely not if it uses Components). You definitely cannot open a VFJ file saved from 6.1.x in 6.0.x. Version 6.1.1 is a highly recommended update, but if you want to keep an older version installed as well, you can always rename the older app before you install 6.1.1.
