2. Open­ing fonts

If you’d like to store the low-level TT hint­ing when open­ing a TrueType-flavored font, make sure the Pref­er­ences set­ting Opening OpenType & TrueType / TrueType/OpenType TT (.ttf) / Store TrueType native hinting is enabled. If dis­abled, the True­Type assem­bly instruc­tions will not be read from the font. If enabled, they will be read, stored in the .vfb doc­u­ment and writ­ten back into a new gen­er­ated .ttf font — but only for the glyphs which have not been mod­i­fied within FLS.

A brown “T” mark in the lower-right cor­ner of a glyph cell indi­cates that low-level TT hints are present in the glyph (either read from the orig­i­nal TrueType-flavored font, or gen­er­ated using Font­Lab Studio’s True­Type Hint­ing tool).

When open­ing PostScript-flavored fonts, their hint­ing is always read from the font and stored in the .vfb document.
