Rotating Glyphs

Place a guide line at the angle you want.

Select the glyph in contour mode [the outline will turn red] and right click in it. An "X" will appear in the center of the glyph.

Use the mouse to grab a corner, and rotate it to the angle you want.

ttl ? Do you mean ttf ?

If they were named wrong you can re-name them in CFP.

At the Top of the Forum, select Search and type in naming. You should find most of your answers.

Good Hunting!

HOT KEYS

I just discovered that the H key - Hide can be "Locked Down." Of course you can always turn the grid and guide lines off in the VIEW selection. First select a point [or block of points] Second simultaneously hold down the control key and the H key and use any of the arrow keys to move it one space. ...

Thanks Dick!

Being a traditionalist I would make the 8 more like an 8 and less like a slashed 0. I would also shorten the tail on the I to make it obviously different from the J. But I don't know your design source. The Scotts didn't give me a choice. I'm trying to get my source documentation posted to the web ...

Good Morning Larry,

I'm not the sharpest crayon in the box, but am willing to give it a bit of a go.

Did you check out the size and line thicknesses in the originals before importing them?

Perhaps the problem is the "Fill Outlines" toggle.
