Illustrator --> FL / paths-fill-stroke

type's picture

Fontlab will not import paths with neither fill nor stroke (a - just a line with the pen tool, b- rectangle ) ?

This is as intended. Please always give your shapes a fill, and do not use strokes.

I asked just to be sure since...... I think that the good fairy came to say hi ( few days ago)

I can import storkes, shapes without a problem! About the scale issue: a rectangle 5.5 by 5.5 inches (illustrator) = 700 units (FL)

This is a good bug, huh?

When FontLab Preferences / General / Do not rescale EPS files is disabled, then FontLab will always automatically rescale your drawing to be 70% of the UPM size high. When your font has 1000 UPM, FontLab will make your drawing 700 units high.

When the preferences option is enabled, then FontLab will not rescale anything. 1 pt will be equal 1 FontLab unit, to 1 inch will be equal 72 FontLab units.

This is explained in the manual and in the article
