FontLab & Curve / Corner / Tangent Point(s)
0

Is there an easy way — or simple/fast — to change a curve point to corner; tangent to corner etc etc ?

With Fog there is no problem (Menu —> Points –> then we can change it.

How to do that with FontLab?

Thank you

p.s.

FontLab is digital type design toolkit. The user guide — 716 pages — is ToolKiller. :-)

Do a contextual click on the point (Ctrl-click on Mac, Right-click on Windows). The context menu has various options, including connection type.

You might want to pick up a copy of Leslie Cabarga’s book, Learn FontLab Fast. I’ve been working with FontLab for a long time, and I noticed a bunch of things in there about curve/point editing that I didn’t know.

Cheers,

You can also just double-click the point, so the shape displayed next to it is an X (instead of an O). Double-clicking toggles between smooth and sharp connections.
