RF speed / performance
I'm still on 10.6.8 as a result of hanging onto FontLab for as long as humanly possible. I'm loving RF, but I'm getting the spinning beachball a lot, and it can be very slow with when I open a file (or more than one file) or apply a transformation to multiple glyphs.
Do you think it runs faster on 10.8?
That will not change much.
But in the next version you will be able to open a glyph window for a font that has no UI.
from mojo.UI import OpenGlyphWindow, OpenSpaceCenter path = u"path/to/a/font.ufo" f = OpenFont(path, showUI=False) # opens glyphs "a" in a glyph window OpenGlyphWindow(f["a"]) OpenSpaceCenter(f)
