I'm testing Type Light and I'm watching following behaviour:
I have a OTF-Font which has a wrong weight-description. While I wanted to change this I loaded this file into Type Light. Changing the Font Weight is no problem but when I save this file as OTF again there are several problems with it.
When I'm opening the saved file with the Font Viewer of Windows there is nothing to see. No font description and no example text
The file is blocked like a file opened with an another application. But - the file is not opened with any application.
Deletion of this file is impossible because of above behaviour. Strange thing: When I'm restarting my computer the saved file is blocked yet.
I have saved the edited file as TTF. This worked but I need the edited font as OTF so this is not a good workaround. I've tested another OTF-Fonts, positively. It seems so be a problem with this one font.
Parameters of my computer: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Type Light 22.214.171.124
I tested to start Type Light in a compatibility mode of Win XP and Vista and second with Administrator rights but this don't fix it up.
Any hints? I would provide the font for testing purposes if needed. If so drop me a mail to besim (at) karadeniz (dot) de.

This issue has been resolved in update 3.2.016 (7 Dec 2012).
In countries where the decimal separator is a comma, incorrect values were exported in some .otf fonts. With this particular font the values were out-of-range for the operating systems font-viewer, and it 'locked' the font file.
