Rotating / Scaling selected points

Post by Hafonton » Fri Feb 22, 2019 12:31 pm

Hi
Is there a way to rotate / scale selected points?

For example, only the points I marked with yellow:

(it would be best to be able to scale/rotate from a specified anchor point that the user can change)

Thanks for reading

No chance at all in MainType, so I moved your thread to the FontCreator Feature Requests forum, where you presumably meant to post it.

Rotate only works on contours, not selected points. Use the knife tool to cut the contour, then rotate it. Selected points can be dragged with the mouse, or moved with the cursor keys.

I understand, so I will manage using illustrator for manipulating the glyphs for now.

Will there be any feature like that in the future?
