With some feedback from you, the Squeak user community, I could
fix some minor bugs from the MorphicFontEditor and add some
improvements. The new Version (for Squeak 3.7) as available
at SqueakMap under the name "MorphicFontEditor".
I got further proposals for improvements, but I will not
be able to implement these very quickly.
Please do not hesitate to drop me a line when you encounter
problems. I hope that the new version is an improvement, but
you know that hope and reality sometimes differ.
Thanks to those who took the time to write ma about
bugs and possible improvements.

The point sizes differ. It is not wrong to rasterize point sizes 9 and 10
on a form of height 12, it is only confusing. I feat that I contributed
to that confusion with a font editing tool that ignored the point sizes
and used only the number of pixels in the vertical (height). This
is now fixed. You may wish to install the improved version and to
took at the fonts once again.
