Sorry I got more beginner questions. Is there no way to align things like we do in Ai? Ai's align tool is super powerful, I'm not seeing any of that in fontlab or is it hidden somewhere? I've looked into the transform panel, guides, etc and there isn't one for alignment. Any ideas? The only align tool I've seen is "align points" and even that acts sort of weird, it aligns based on what it thinks is right and not against the point I want it to align with. In Ai, there are options where if you select a node you can have other nodes align against it or you can align several objects in a multitude of ways. I'm thinking there has to be an align tool because if you had to draw something symmetrical like say the + sign you would need an align tool. I definitely might not be looking in the right places so any help would be cool.
One more question: If you draw a rectangle or an ellipse over an existing glyph that's already drawn, fontlab seems to automatically merge the whole thing. I don't know why it does that. I use an ellipse or a rectangle sometimes as a guide but I can't because it keeps merging it. Any idea so it doesn't merge?
Cheers and thanks!
