creating a curve

Post by dolphin7 » Sun Nov 10, 2002 1:14 am

working (playing) with this program is great. of course there are just the little things that may seem obvious but impossible to grasp.

when creating a glyph, I haven't been able to figure out how to make a new curve.

Please help

There are four ways to add outlines (contours) to a glyph:
  • Add a new contour
    First select Contour from the Insert menu. A left mouse click creates a point onto the contour and a right mouse click creates a point off the contour for a bézier curve. Creating points while pressing the CTRL key generates straight lines (horizontal or vertical). After you have created your contour you press the "Apply" button.
  • Samples toolbar:
    Drag and drop a glyph from the samples toolbar to a glyph edit window.
  • Copy contours from other glyphs, even from other fonts.
  • Import images.
You will find more information about this in the help file.
