Anyone knows how to remove hundreds of random guidelines?
Is there any macro?, or something?
Thanks in advance!
vguides = fl.font.vguides
hguides = fl.font.hguides
(I know this code is also on the Flickr page, but it might be handier to have it here.)
Get a PC...
Very helpful, Old Nick. Next time you get a virus should he tell you to get a Mac?

Probably not for very much longer...
the kind of thing that tends to motivate hackers...
And how to remove all global guidelines more comfortable on PC? Is there a command in FontLab? By the way, random guidelines. Does this mean the same as global guidelines?
With each new Mac user the Mac becomes more attractive for virus programers. It’s not safer, because it is so much better programed, as far as I know.
Get a FontForge...
or even better:
Get a Linux and run FontForge on it...
Thanks you very much!
I am on a PC already.
I know people working with the stable FontLab windows version on a windows virtial machine on their mac.
Regarding the "unstable" Mac version of FontLab: Your mileage may vary.
I'm on a Mac, running the Mac version, but I seldom get crashes or run into serious bugs. I have run into the exploding guidelines bug maybe two or three times ever. (FWIW.)

I know, Arno, I was just teasing Oldnick for proselytising PCs when they are no problem-free environment either. I don't care care which platform people choose as long as they don't insist everyone else do the same.

My sentiments exactly...
I remember running into the exploding guidelines issue quite regularly for about a week. Then I stopped doing whatever sequences of actions triggered it....
I'm in FontLab every day and I've never seen this bug. I guess that means . . . I'm just not hardcore.
Were you using a Mac or a PC when you had the problem? and do you know "which" sequence of actions triggerd it?
@ Ray: It just means you are lucky ;-)
I honestly don't remember the details... it was at least two years ago, maybe three or four.
Thanks, Thomas. It has happened to me at least twice in the last 4 years but I have no idea what brought it on. I was using a Mac though, other than that, I have no clue.
