glyph it is completely destroyed

Post by est » Mon Oct 07, 2019 4:09 pm

I installed a trial version,
And I'm having a problem.
I insert glyphs into the software, and when I reduce the glyph it is completely destroyed
I'm attaching screen capture.
Is there a solution before I buy?

I'll be happy to respond quickly

Before I reduced the size

After reducing the size

Thanks!

Before resizing, try reducing the number of nodes. Right-click, Optimize.

You can see the number of contours and nodes in the status toolbar at the bottom.

Contours consist of nodes that have to be rounded integers, so you will get such issues if the outline becomes too small.

You could increase the global “units per em”, so tou can store more details.
