Glyph Nanny

by Tal Leming

“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.”

Delorean: Interpolation Preview

by CJ Dunn

“–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.”
