    font source path and vendor id

    Level 1
      two questions


      Since the step from 1.4 to 1.5 my old font folder is no more accepted by
      MakeOTF. It stops compiling the font by the status "Running txlib...".
      Him - I downloaded the examples and all works fine. So I`d copied my
      fonts paths into the "Example Font Sources" directory and MakeOTF runs
      like MakeOTF 1.4 before. But how can I change the path - so MakeOTF will
      operate from each path my font files stored?


      How can I apply my vendor ID to the font - of course I can extract the
      table form the font, can use an hex editor and place it back. But I like
      to do it with MakeOTF. I have checked the adobe samples and the vendor
      id is ADBE in the final font. But I haven't find any code in the feature
      files changing this value. If I compile my own fonts the result is UKWN
      - unknown. The values from the source pfa and fontinfo file will be
      ignored by MakeOTF.

      (I use the Windows SDK)
