Creating oblique glyphs in fontlab
0

Hey Guys,
My current workflow for creating oblique glyphs is to create a straight glyph and then change the value of angle in the glyph properties dialogue box. It is very cumbersome and nothing but a trail and error. Is there any other method to create angled guides in fontlab?
Thanks

Creating angled guides is simply a matter of defining the guide’s properties; creating angled glyphs is an entirely different matter…

You can slant all glyphs at once using Tools/Actions/Contour in Fontlab..

And if you set the slant angle in Font info/Metrics and Dimensions/Key dimensions you will get all your guides in that very angle.
