i have a litl question regarding a problem i'm having in fontlab. i'm still in the process of figuring out the progr. so bare with me on this one
I'm working on some characters and kind of did the basic form of the letters in illustrator without adding to much detail, i placed all the characters i had in fontlab and started fine tuning them in fontlab, since i imported the letters from illustrator they were in very small size so after fine tuning i scaled the letters to match the x-height.. but after scaling i noticed that all of the proportions of the letters where slightly changed, for example the stems are different in size, bowls are slightly different, i had the bowl of letters like d, p in the same curve now they are different from each other...
i liked to know what it is that i'm doing wrong.
this is how i scaled them:
placed all letters next to each other and selected all of them than this box appears around the selected letters , place my cursor at the corner of the box hold down shift and scale till i get to the wanted x-heith.
all help is very much appreciated
