I read somewhere in the help section about this "Generate" button but I cannot find it anywhere. Anyone know about this? :?

Generating Contours from a Bitmap

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala » Tue Dec 17, 2002 7:55 pm

If you are using the lite version of the program you will not have the option to import an image.

With the full version, you can import a bitmap into a glyph (from the tools menu) and generate contours from the image (autotrace it to convert the bitmap to a vector). This saves a lot of drawing, since you can scan your handwriting and convert each character to a glyph to make a complete font.
