This is a plugin for the Glyphs font editor.
It superimposes the current glyph as a rotated copy of itself.
This can be helpful when working on symmetric characters (e.g.
0, O, o, S, s, Z, z, X, x, …). The degree of a desired match depends on each design, of course. It is not nessessary to match the drawing with it’s rotated counterpart, but it can indeed help to balance letters in matters of weight distribution and/or optical centering.
- Install via the Plugin Manager in Glyphs.
- Restart Glyphs.
How to use
When ever you need it, toggle
