I like to set the steps of the arrow keys on 100 units in FontLab. Where can I do that? I can't find it...
It's there in Preferences>Glyph Window>Dimensions:
Shift-arrow keys increment: 10.
... Dimensions is not there...
I'm a Macintosh user, FontLab 4.6...
On the PC control-arrow does 100 pt jumps. I assume that on the mac it will be command-arrow.
arrow = 1 unit
shift-arrow = 10 units
that's it, no more flavours...
The problem is that you're using FontLab 4 and everyone else here is using FontLab Studio 5. As far as I know, you can't change that setting in FontLab 4.
Upgrading to FontLab Studio 5 is the only solution...
Ok, thanks for the information.
>On the PC control-arrow does 100 pt jumps. I assume that on the mac it will be command-arrow.
Theoretically yes. But due to the bug Left and Right arrows with Command do 100pt jumps horizontally while Up and Down arrows switch to the next/prev node (FLS 5.02/Mac).
It works okay on my Mac (5.0.2). Maybe you changed the default settings inadvertently or something?
Yes, it works if you apdated from 5.0.1. But if you install 5.0.2 from scratch (or remove prefs and workspaces) Cmd-Up and Cmd-Down will switch to the next/prev node.
It's my fault :(
