I seem to have a problem with a combination of TypeTools 3.1 & MacOS X 10.8.2, which I did not have with my previous combination of MacOS X 10.6 and the then-current version of TypeTool. I do not know if the problem lies with TypeTool, MacOS X 10.8 or something else (PBKAC?).
The problem is the following: if I take a font (TTF or OTF), make a change in its header (for instance to remove forbidden characters in the PS font name) and regenerate the font, then even though the file on disk is new, the header has not been changed. Changing the font file's name does not help. If I save the font as a vfb file, then the header information in the vbf file is correct, but if I now generate a new TTF file from this vhf file, the result will have the starting font's header, not the modified one as found in the vbf.
Am I alone in seeing this behavior?
