you can add a start up script that will add some root folders to the sys.path
this module will then be available inside RoboFont
to update the module without restarting:
The transform options did expand with RoboFont 1.2
It really handy to disable components if you want to transform a selection of glyphs, where there is a mix of hard outlines and components glyphs. If this option isn't disabled the component is being transformed twice.
this could be a nice extension
I don't think I will embed it into the app natively, such a feature is similar like drawing with primitives that already exists as an extension (see http://doc.robofont.com/extensions/shapes-tool/ )
