Copy/Paste form Ilustrator to Fontlab

When I copy and paste outlines form illustrator to fontlab, the outlines appear below the baseline and I have to move them up to the correct position. Is there a way to paste then so they sit on the baseline.

Rachel,

the outlines appear exactly as they are placed in Illustrator: the origin point in FontLab Studio corresponds to the origin point in Illustrator.

All you need to do is move the origin point in Illustrator by drag-dropping the small rectangle where the horizontal and the vertical ruler intersect. Also, there is a section of the FontLab Studio 5 manual dedicated to exchanging drawings with Illustrator which I recommend reading.
