Dear Robofont forum,
I had a problem trying to export some fonts (I tried every file format).
If I try to export it "manually", from the GUI, the progress bars appear, but no file is generated in the target folder.
Instead, if I try to do it from the code editor, Robofont prints this message:
"Traceback (most recent call last): File "lib/fontObjects/doodleFontCompiler/baseCompiler.pyc", line 273, in compile File "ufo2fdk/makeotfParts.pyc", line 63, in compile File "ufo2fdk/makeotfParts.pyc", line 78, in setupFile_outlineSource File "ufo2fdk/outlineOTF.pyc", line 76, in compile File "ufo2fdk/outlineOTF.pyc", line 547, in setupTable_CFF File "ufo2fdk/fontInfoData.pyc", line 175, in normalizeNameForPostscript TypeError: must be unicode, not str"
You can find at this link a sample of the typeface:

The problem seems to relate to your font family name. It exported fine for me after I deleted " Emma" from the end...
I can't remember the naming restrictions, but I suspect the problem relates to the fact that you've used two spaces in the name. I also seem to remember that the full name can't exceed 19 or 21 characters...
Maybe someone can clarify?
Your font family name has an soft enter char at the end.

Thanks, now it works.
I suggest to insert a tooltip showing the allowed char in the fields.
