Thanks. Please keep reporting bugs/feature requests!

Regarding arrows, Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right should increase / decrease the tile.

I think almost everything can be done from the keyboard... the thing is that I haven't documented the shortcuts yet. Although you can find most of the shortcuts by navigating the menus.

thanks all for the feedback.

@frantic: Ok, thanks. I'll try to fix the multicolor bug for the next release.

"Clear" Bug: I'll fix it for the next release. Workaround: Use "Cut" instead (Ctrl-x)

"Translations" Bug: Ouch. Interesting... specially since I don't speak German. I think the bug is the Qt translation files. If you remove the "translation" folder it should work ok. I'll report this bug in the Qt forum.

i found a bug in the clear function. when you choose a multiple chars and press delete or choose "clear" from the menu, it doesn't clear them. also the dialogs box of confirm/cancel actions are in German which its nice but apart for for non-german speakers

I didn't select the wrong bg color. In fact, all I had to do was to switch back and forth between multicolor/hires/multicolor to be able to select color 3 and 4 as well with the CMD-3 and CMD-4 keyboard combos. No colors changed in the process afaik.

Thanks for the feedback!

Regarding the multicolor bug, if the selected foreground color is between 0-7, then Multicolor will be disabled.
The selected Foreground color must be between 8-15 in order to enable Multicolor. This is how the C64 works.

In any case, it is a VChar64 User-Experience bug, since VChar64 should somehow notify users of that behavior.

If by any chance you know how to reproduce the "save bug", please, let me know.

Couldn't help downloading this (the Mac version) and create a little font. :) There were some bugs that I noticed, but since I couldn't reproduce them I can't really give the details.

At one point I had a multicolor font visible, but MAC+3 and MAC+4 was greyed out in the color selection menu. Could be that I just opened the file, but the editor somehow didn't realize that the font was a multicolor one, and just stayed in hires mode. Not sure.

When I first saved my font the program crashed, but apparently the data was saved just fine, so the work wan't lost.

...and some more odd stuff. Nevertheless, it all worked fine enough to do some font pixelling. Who needs bug free tools anyway? ;)
