Glitches in FL5, not in MS Word

This is the same glyph (from Facto Bold, a Jonathan Hill of The Northern Block typeface).
Note the glitches seen only in FL5.

What's going on here?

(Technical details: I'm using Windows 10, the file type is OTF.)


  • The font/glyph uses fractional coordinates and FLS can’t handle them correctly.

    Wait a minute, fractional coordinates are legal?
    You haven't changed your mind about making Glyphs available for Windows, have you?

    @Thomas Phinney
    Is it going to be any different in FLVI?

    Yes, fractional coordinates are legit now (although not recommended unless you need them, since they increase font file size), and yes, they are supported in FLVI.

    Good to know, thanks.
  • Ps. Fractional coordinates work in CFF-flavored OT fonts only but not in TTF-flavored fonts.
