What units per em do you tend to use during fontdevelopment?

    I am using FL7 a lot for production work—the variations tools are excellent, the kerning and anchor tools are better than FLS5—but I'm still not comfortable creating glyphs in it. I work so quickly in FLS5, that I find myself reverting to it for drawing, then import the glyphs into FL7. I think this is just a comfort issue, though, and that if I made myself use FL7 for drawing I would get to grips with it and possibly even prefer it. Still miss my interpolate nodes tool, though.

    Which tool is that? Built-in or script/plugin?

    A while ago for fun I drew a font at 100 upm. The normal weight looks fine but any interpolations fail.

    I used 1000 for many years. Now I am using 2048 and find it ideal.
