RoboFont 4.3

  • admin

    Dear users,

    RoboFont 4.3 is mature enough to be shared with you all! As usual, lots of bug fixes, user interface improvements, and a few adjustments on the APIs. Here's the list with the most important updates:

    • FontTools has moved to DesignSpaceDocument v5. Tools like Batch and Skateboard work with the new format, but they do not support discrete axes.
    • Add support for ctrl ⌃ + alt ⌥ + delete to completely remove a glyph from a UFO (including layers, kerning and groups).
    • Keep unsaved glyphs into account while testing external changes. It avoids loosing data not saved on disk when reverting.
    • Add support for dark mode and new toolbars on macOS 11 and 12.

    • Point coordinates are typeset in italic if "Slant Point Coordinates" is on in the Preferences
    • Adding a guideline with shift + g + click with an italic angle will apply the angle to the new guideline
