Is it possible to transform the whole font in width?

Post by Manu » Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:30 pm

I am testing this software, because I need make a condensed font from an old one I drew long time a go.

The question is, is it possible to transform the whole font from the actual width to a condensed one in some percentage?

Thanks.

The glyph transform wizard can be used to transform all selected glyphs at once, but you will probably have to edit each glyph afterwards to adjust them afterwards, especially if the font has serifs. Glyphs like zero, O, C, Q and so forth will need more work to keep the stem width even.

Please look closely at the results. They are far from being perfect.
