Reducing Nodes to Smooth Glyphs

Post by liu hanxu » Sat Apr 11, 2020 12:21 am

Smooth glyph in fontcreator13 has this function, there are many words in the world, such as Chinese characters, at least 6763 words, each word to do once, very slow and troublesome, hope to have batch processing smooth glyph function.

The Standard and Professional versions of FontCreator have had this feature for some time.
  1. Select all simple glyphs
  2. Open the Glyph Transformer
  3. Add the Optimize feature from the Outlines folder on the left
  4. Run the script
