Summary0000163: Cannot export fonts in free version
DescriptionUsing version 3.22.0 free, trying to export any font under the SIL Open Font License returns the error "This font is not under the SIL Open Font License, you need the commercial version of BirdFont. Go to".
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a font using version 3.22.0 free on Windows; choose the SIL Open Font License.
2. Add a glyph (possibly not necessary)
3. Attempt to export the font using Export Fonts.
4. An error comes up saying "This font is not under the SIL Open Font License, you need the commercial version of BirdFont. Go to"
Additional InformationThis is similar to issue 0000157, but occurs in all newly created fonts and cannot be fixed by altering the license fields. Trying to export the fixed file from issue 0000157 returns the same SIL OFL error.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hi. I believe this issue has been fixed in the latest release (v3.23.2). Please let me know if it works for you.

Using the latest release (3.23.2), I was able to export my test font, the corrected font from 0000157, and an OFL font whose license and copyright fields aren't completely identical to a newly created font using the SIL OFL but has the correct license URL.

On my end this issue appears resolved. Thank you for fixing this so quickly!
