After seeing the FontLab paste sidebearings bug for the 1000th time, I decided to post it on the FontLab forum in the vain hope that it might get fixed. It's been around since paste special was introduced and I had mentioned in the old Fontlab Forum. So I'm wondering how many bugs we've learned to live with FontLab is aware of. I searched the Typophile Forum and found lots of posts about FontLab bugs: bugs which still persist in the current version of FontLab Studio.
I'm getting fed up with weird snapping BCPs, dead curves, bizarre shift-drag,/alt-drag behaviour, "auto" naming buttons that name things incorrectly and more. Some of these bugs are so old they've probably just forgotten about them.
So, even if you've mentioned bugs here or on the old forum, pop over to the new FontLab forum and list them again.
I don't know about you, but I don't want to spend another decade working around the same old FontLab bugs.
