Re: Variable Fonts

Hey Erwin,

No rush, I know you are working on dozens of features simultaneously.
Will there be a beta version to help with testing? can we help in some way to make progress?
I'd love to use this feature in FC.

Re: Make glyph with multiple contours bolder bug

I wonder if it is even possible for software to deal with unexpected situations like this. Garbage in, garbage out, is what one would expect. I notice that Erwin has not responded to the thread. Only he can know what is feasible. I think you've covered it all. I'm sure we can further improve the so...

Re: Make glyph with multiple contours bolder bug

I see. That's a wonderful idea for a feature request! Making a proportional bold/light effect is a very useful and I would like it as well, if its possible. But I think it deserves its own thread. To my understanding, my problem is different then yours. The problem I'm facing is different and much a...

It is the same issue. The transform scripts move nodes by the defined number of funits, which can make them cross over themselves.
What is funits?

Re: Make glyph with multiple contours bolder bug

These contours should be joined with Get Union of Contours before applying any bold transformation. I see that, but I want to keep the contours separate (because I still work on the font). To my eyes, the contours should remain their direction (clockwise or counter clockwise) when a thin/bold funct...

Make glyph with multiple contours bolder bug

Problem: Sometimes when I make a glyph that has overlapping contours and I try to make them bolder, it changes the direction of some contours , therefore, making some contours lighter, and the others bolder. Suggested solution: prevent changing the direction of the contours when performing a bold/t...

Re: change select tag to radio tags

I understand. Can we fix that by applying the localstorage function I wrote? It works fine. You can test it It doesn't seem to work with good old Internet Explorer. For now you can use the manual fix I suggested. I see. Well, I'll live with ltr as the default, because I prefer to always be up-to-da...

Wow that's a wonderful simplify! I love it.
