“This tool provides live feedback about the technical quality of a glyph. The goal is to help new type designers get through the “Beziers Are Frustrating!” phase a little more quickly. Keep in mind that the displayed notes and marks are generated by math and are not a definitive list of things that must be corrected. It’s always (okay, not always) acceptable to break the rules as long as you have a good reason. Think of the comments as reminders to think through why you have things where they are.”
“–Start by opening two UFOs which are compatible for interpolation
–Use the slider or arrows to preview interpolation of a glyph at different values
–Delorean will update the preview live as you adjust the glyph’s outline in the originals
–The “generate” button in the bottom right will save an instance of the interpolated glyph to your CurrentFont()
–The glyph.name must exist in both fonts and the outlines must be compatible for interpolation.
–The status indicator in the bottom left corner turns red if either of these conditions aren’t met.”
“A simple Robofont extension to copy selected glyphs from one open font to other open font(s).” That’s weird, I thought this script was going to do something else. Just kidding.
One of Alexandre’s greatest hits from his famed TypeMedia days, this little script gives you an idea what some broad nib might look like over a skeleton. Sort like a poor man’s Kalligulator.
“A subclass of the Robofont Editing Tool, Bounding Tool helps you visualize the bounding box of your current glyph. It will also display the box’s dimensions, thanks to Nina Stössinger. You can use the division sliders if you are trying to center something, or divide something evenly into halves, thirds, or quarters.”
“RoboFont extension AutoSaviour will save all your open fonts every 600 seconds automatically.” Sounds very useful. If only Alexander could write a script that would improve your open fonts every 600 seconds automatically.
