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.”

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.”
