Component Preview Outline
Is there a way (UI or script wise) to remove the white outline from the way components are rendered in the preview pane of Inspector?
there have been some discussions on the beta list about this:
the next implementation will be:
components in dark gray and hard contours in black. it will be almost not visible when there are only components but when ever there is a mix of contours and components it clear.
if you have other ideas you could send me your configuration (use inside DrawBot)
from defcon import Font from fontTools.pens.cocoaPen import CocoaPen # set a path path = u"path/to/my/Font-Regular.ufo" # get the font font = Font(path) # get a glyph both with a contour and a component glyph = font["tcaron"] # background fill (same color as the window) fill(237/255) # draw rect with the size of the canvas rect(0, 0, width(), height()) translate(100, 100) scale(.8) # fill with black fill(0) # get a pen pen = CocoaPen(font) # draw the glyph in the pen glyph.draw(pen) # draw the pen.path drawPath(pen.path) # new pen componentPen = CocoaPen(font) # draw only the components in that pen for component in glyph.components: component.draw(componentPen) # set a fill # component fill color # 50% black with a 30% alpha value fill(.5, .5) #stroke(1) # draw the compontens path drawPath(componentPen.path)
Sorry I didn’t reply earlier. I really like the new configuration! Will gladly wait for the implementation. The white outlines are maybe a bit too disturbing for some use cases.
