New to font editing, so maybe missing something obvious. The aim is to add a couple of Cyrillic characters needed for the Mongolian language that Russian based fonts don't include; one is an o with a horizontal line through the middle (ө), the other is a y with a vertical stem rather than the slanting or curled stem (ү). There are a number of fonts we can start from where the license allows this.
Just playing with demo version for now to see how to use it, with a view to buying it if it seems to do what we want. Can double-click a character in the mapping window and sometimes the glyph is editable and sometimes it isn't. No obvious consistency - the same one will sometimes edit and sometimes not. (Generally just trying to draw a line across it or something, to see what happens; sometimes the line will draw, sometimes it won't).
Running on Windows 7, 64-bit. Might this be one of the 64-bot problems? Or missing something altogether.

I think you are trying to edit composite glyphs (composite glyphs do not have their own nodes, but are made up of other glyphs).
Composite glyphs have blue outlines, rather than black, and individual nodes cannot be moved unless you press the 'decompose' button (the 'a' with half dark blue and half light blue on the toolbar') first.
