I recently purchased Fontlab 7 after years of working with Fontlab Studio 5.2 and I work with mostly Hebrew fonts which are right-to-left scripts.

In 5.2 there is an "RTL" button in the metrics screen toolbar and I can't find it in Fontlab 7. Where can I find this button in Fontlab 7?


Currently, the RTL mode is handled by turning on the "features" button in the left Sidebar, which enables RTL where appropriate. Unfortunately there is no dedicated RTL button yet but we have the temporary solution:  the Python script that reverses each line in your Glyph window text (1st glyph becomes last, last becomes 1st).

Please see the script "Reverse Text" here:
