its seems to be a fontTools issue
it seems to recalculate the bounds from all points instead of analysing the bounds of the contour
(this will be fixed in the next version...
I re-looked at your topic after a tweet https://twitter.com/arialcrime/status/537553252783759360
And if I remembered it correctly it wasn't an issue when I tested on 10.7 but now I see the issue
This will be resolved in the next update
Well I was to quick pushing a new version of the Outliner. The developers and beta version of RoboFont has a warning for a typo in the API. Which is solved in the Outliner, but you don't have the dev or beta version
thanks and good luck!
oh, oeps, idd typo, it was redirecting to autoHint instead of stemHist… (will be fixed in the next update)
stemHist takes a binary path as argument.
and has optional arguments:
useCurves=bool: Include stems formed by curved line segments; by default, includes
only stems formed by straight line segments.
blueZones=bool: Return alignment zone report rather than stem report
this is a Adobe FDK tool.
The mojo module is just a collection of useful internal modules. You can also use this:
from lib.tools.compileTools import stemHist
print stemHist("binaryPath.otf", useCurves=True, blueZones=False)
Also if you scale the blues in the font by a factor the value become <real> in the fontinfo instead of <integer>.
Now you can not edit them in the fontinfo window anymore...
So be sure to int(here_a_blue_value)
