RoboFont on macOS 11 Big Sur
Please don’t upgrade to macOS 11 Big Sur yet!
The latest version of Apple’s operating system, macOS 11 Big Sur, was finally released to users this month. Together with a completely overhauled look, it introduces major changes to the way views are drawn to the screen. Unfortunately for RoboFont users, this prevents the current version of RoboFont from working properly on macOS 11.
The good news is that we have been working together with Tal Leming since July on a whole new drawing system using CALayers, which fixes the issues, offers lots of new possibilities, and is backwards-compatible with older versions of macOS. It will be included in the upcoming beta, to be released as soon as possible.
Thanks for the patience, looking forward to next betas!
In the mean time a quick fix RoboFont 3.5 is planned. However it is still not advised to upgrade to macOS 11.
