negative linespacing? the SpaceCenter only gives some basic layout options if you want to test your font with more depth I would recommend to try test install and setup a template in text setting app.
In the waterfall mode only the first line is editable
yes, that is producing the same result
the space after a /<glyphName> is mainly because you can use both non-glyphName and /<glyphNames> as input:
Su/cool_p er p (if you have a glyph called cool_p)
Copy paste glyph in the input field will try to convert them to unicode characters for display in the input field, that is way the extra space is added.
You could also drag and drop glyph on the input fields.
I know about the issue, i did some tests, but I thought it was FontLab 5.1 realted.
And no, I'm not using Lion. Should dialogs work in Snow Leopard? As the traceback says it's seems the embeded python 2.7 can't import EasyDialogs...
I can build them with vanilla, I know, but it's not urgent enough. I'll wait for a while if there's no other way.
To be able to get a cleaner UI the grid isn't show when its not really necessary, so if you have set your grid really small in the preferences it has no use showing them when the glyph view is zoomed out.
You can not change the dashed line.
I think there is a easier solution for you: set the "Snap points to:" to 4 (in your case) in the Preferences > Glyph view tab. You will be able to draw and edit your outlines only with points coordinates which are a multiples of 4.
Hope this helps
There is already some documentation of the editing tool available. see http://doc.robofont.com/documentation/tools/editing-tool/
straight line to curve:
alt+drag the straight line
alt+drag one of the oncurve points
delete a bcp will remove both bcps
alt delete a bcp will algign the bcp on top of the oncurve point
RoboFont tries to bundle similar actions to one and the same shortcut.
Bcp handle modifications are mostly all bundle with the "command" key.
modifying curves by grabbing the curve:
only dragging: moving all points
command + drag: adjusting the bcp handles
shift + drag: drag the points on 0° 45° or 90°
alt + drag: un-smooth the oncurve points and move the bcps only
shift + alt + drag: lock the bcp on 0° 45° 90°
Thank you Frederik! Will look forward to that.
I've been looking at some of Tal's examples such as this one (referred by Andy Clymer)
which I'm trying to work out as a replacement for AskString
