Strange Final Cut Pro/Boris Title 3D bug

Final Cut Pro’s built-in Boris Title 3D feature has been driving me a little crazy. On my first machine, I couldn’t get any of the buttons (including “Apply”) to activate unless I clicked it about 20 times. So, I moved to a second machine where I ran into an even stranger bug:

If you copy text with a substring of ffi, the i will be omitted. Traffic becomes traffc, and office becomes offc.

Try it and let me know if this happens to you. I’m running FCP 7.0.

  1. You’re right. It is not a bug. It is often considered to be a good thing and a perk of Open Type fonts.

    Has anyone figured out a way to make it stop though? I’m working on a project where it is not helpful. I guess I’ll just add a space between ‘f’ and ‘i’ and lower the space font size to make it disappear.
