Rotator

Rotators gonna Rotate

The rotation center can be set by entering the coordinate values, or by activating “capture clicks” and then clicking anywhere on the canvas.
A preview of the rotation is shown in the glyph window; and will dynamically update when new values are given, or other outlines are selected.

Versions

0.5.1 2018-02-07  Python 3 support and some common sense modifications.
                  (Why wouldn’t the window be closable in a normal way?
                  That was silly.)
0.5   2015-03-01  Make text boxes better with digesting (ignoring)
                  malicious input.
0.4   2014-07-30  Update UI, get rid of plist files, add preview glyph,
                  add optional rounding for resulting glyph.
0.3   2013-11-08  Add click capture for setting rotation center.
0.2   2013-03     Re-write for Robofont.

This script was very useful for the flowery- and asterisky glyphs. No procrastination involved, why are you asking?
