I've just purchased Fontographer 5.2 for Windows, having been an original Fog user. I've been out of action for about a decade, so I'm catching up with a lot of this technology particularly Unicode and OT. However, most of my fonts are special symbols and I've seemingly done OK assigning private values to one font, but I'm having problems keeping the assigned values of another font to within the ISO 8859-1 character range. The characters are either totally missing or end up in the private use area of F021 - F0FE
Just opening an old Fog file in 5.2 places the 8-bit ASCII table into the private area of F021 - F0FE and editing each cell's glyph information one by one is rather tedious.
I can compile this font OK in Fog 4.1, but this means the font has all the drawbacks of that version.
I find my symbols render a lot better if there are no hints, but there does not seem to be a way of stripping them out completely, yet other programs can seemingly do this.
Am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance...
