The line on the right is the original vector.
The line on the left was the result of;
>Tools >Action >Effects > Shadow. (values set to H 50, V-50 width line outline 10)
The action created a number of extra glyphs which we superfluous, but understandable, as they were at intermediate points between existing nodes on the original line. Some of were actually necessary to keep the distance between tin in-line and outline consistent.
What was a puzzling and a little annoying was that at random intervals - not in every glyph but often enough, Fontlab inserted nodes on top of each other and some nodes that effectiely folded the line back on itself.
Does anyone have any clues to why this happens or ways of preventing it from happening?
