Which is a suitable script

Post by Fonts » Tue Feb 20, 2018 10:41 am

I want to make a glyph narrower but keep the thickness the same.
The vertical dimension is unchanged. Only the horizontal is reduced in scale.
Which is the most suitable script with the Glyph TRansformations?

A script that turns a regular font into a condensed font is the following:

Scale (50, 100)
Bold (50, 0)

You might need to do some tests before you decide what exact numbers work best for your font. After running it you need to change the Width from medium to Condensed.

Thanks for responding.
What is represented by the two variables in Bold, in your case "Bold (50, 0)". I can't locate in the documentation what the two variables represent.

They are Horizontal and Vertical values. See:

I've attached an updated script file.

Here is how it transformed Roboto Bold to Roboto Bold Condensed:
