Hi Mark,

I have this file in my archive. Please send me an e-mail.
We're aware of this problem (caused by Apple) and working on fixing it.
FontLab Studio / Yosemite 10.10.3 beta 14D113c vs FontLab Studio
« Last post by Sandy JMA on 2015-03-25, 20:45:56 »
Just wanted to make anyone thinking of installing the latest Yosemite 10.10.3 beta (14D113c) aware that it breaks FontLab Studio’s license/activation scheme. I confirmed the problem with Alex. Don't install the Yosemite beta...if you want to continue using FontLab you'll have to revert to an earlier version of the system...which is a PIA.

It's a pity because other than the FontLab issue, I've found the latest beta actually fixes more than it fixes a lot of issues I've had since 10.10.0 was released.

I'm not sure whether the same thing applies to other FontLab products or not. Hopefully we'll see something about this issue from FontLab soon.
You can use Bitfonter....

Open an installed TTF font from inside Bitfonter.

Make sure your Bitfonter prefs are set as shown in the attached screen shot. The key part is that a generated Photofont will create separate outboard graphics files.

Generate a Photofont. It will come with a folder full of PNG files, one for each glyph. You will need to convert these to BMP files. You can use any number of utilities for this, including ImageBatch ( which is free and can convert them all in one go.
FontLab Studio Problems / Exporting all glyphs as bitmaps
« Last post by anesterenko on 2015-03-25, 16:09:03 »
Hello, I need a font editor that can export all my glyphs as bmps. I've downloaded a free trial of fontlab studio to see if it's possible, but that feature is unfortunately disabled, so I'm not really sure about the capability.  The manual seems to indicate that it will export "embedded images". Its unclear to me what an embedded image in a glyph is, but I suspect it's not the same as just getting a bmp from a glyph.  Can someone please provide me a little guidance?  Thanks!

OK, now it is back --

It seems that this occurs when the following two conditions are met:

First, the 'decompose ligatures' box must be checked.

Second, the string entered into the generate glyphs dialog must involve both _ and +. That is, T+S won't cause this problem, but A_T+S will.

The problem affects the first glyph in the string, so A_T+S or A_N_D_X_Q_R_V+S will both result in A being assigned a zero-width.

Note that I am on an older system (Leopard), but this seems like a peculiar behaviour to be OS-specific since I'd assume that Font Lab doesn't rely on the operating system for this operation.

To answer your earlier question, none of the glyphs in the underlying font were ligatures to begin with, nor did any involve components, and there are no spurious glyphs in the font.

I tried this with a number of .vfb files, including ones created by just opening an saving an existing font, and had the same results in each so it isn't a problem with the specific file in use.

Thanks for checking, Adam.

I thought I was up to date, but apparently not. Upgrading to 5.1.4 (4868) seems to have corrected the issue.
