I don't find it "no good". I find that I cannot draw glyphs in
FontLab, but I use Fonttographer as I have for decades.

You are a Linux user, and it is easy for you to say "Use an X11 app"
but that doen't make it "easy" to deal with for a Mac OS user. I have
used Linux. I am not a Linux user.

The restriction is, indeed, stupid, but I understand that this may
change in a future release.

You know perfectly well, Roozbeh, that I am not a programmer and I can
do nothing with source code. I don't really have any problem paying
for software either.

That's nice. Where's the OS X version?

I certainly intend to continue to use Fontographer to draw my glyphs.
