Open type designer - improvement

Post by husham » Thu Jun 11, 2020 8:01 pm

Hello
Today when I was worked on my Gasq Font version 2, i figured out that some glyphs need to modifies there bearings, so I should close Open type designer window and go to glyph properties or glyph transform and then get back to Open type designer, I ask my self why not I couldn't make it through Open type designer window directly... if glyph properties or transform window can be accessed from inside.. I put this issue between your hand Erwin, please see if it is worthy.

We can add more options to the OpenType Designer, but we have to find a balance between editing OpenType features and Glyph Outline related settings.

FontCreator has full undo and redo support, and that becomes less useful if we put everything in one big OpenType Designer action.

That said, we still consider adding an option to set the glyph OpenType type, so you can instantly force a glyph to be Base, Ligature, or Mark.
