Than you for the report. Can you send me your files? Both the distorted and undistributed could be very useful for debugging.
It is OK to send the files to my e-mail address if you don't want them to become public.

Thank you. I will try to fix this when I get Home. It will take a few hours, I appologize for the delay.

OSX 10.13.6
I partially fix the problem using the command "Create counter from outline" !?

Thank you for the update. I have certainly not heard of anything like this before.

I believe this problem comes from either an error in the SVG import or an error in opening an OTF file. I cant see any glyphs in your BF file that changes when I export; probably because the distortion have already happened. The problem however is connected to point types. A point in the path has been changed from its cubic to quadratic form, you can change the point type manually and fix the error but I would prefer if you help me with fixing this issue, either way. Can you send me the OTF or SVG version this font?

I believe this problem has been fixed in 3.12.10 for Mac OS X. Can you test this and report back?
