“Adjust Metrics was created in 2012 by David Jonathan Ross for Font Bureau. It may or may not work the way you want it to.” Wow, a script that is three years old. Lol at DJR for, “it may or may not work the way you want it to.” Well, if it doesn’t, write your own you jerk!
Mama mia is this cool. From Loïc’s GitHub: “This extension is a set of tools to work on corners of an outline.

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.”
