CornerTools

by Loïc Sander

Mama mia is this cool. From Loïc’s GitHub: “This extension is a set of tools to work on corners of an outline. It comprises a tool available in the glyph editing view that allows you to round/cut corners by dragging to define the radius, and a pop-up window (accessible via the Extensions menu, under Corner Tools) which provides a more global set of controls.”

word-o-mat

by Nina Stössinger

Nina’s word-o-mat is an incredibly useful way of getting a customized list of words into the Space Center. From Nina’s GitHub: “Looking for words that contain ‘q’ but not ‘u’? Or French words that use an ‘a’, a ‘g’, at least one ascender, and one diagonal, but only the ones you’ve marked green? Or words in which to see a specific letter combination, like ‘fk’ or ‘Yc’? This is the sort of thing that word-o-mat can help you with. It’s an extension for RoboFont that generates words for use in type sketching, spacing, testing etc.”
