An extension for RoboFont which adds extreme point under 45 degrees. default shortcut is cmd+shift+e. Constant angles across family help better interpolation. I recommend to use this tool in combination with 45 degree angle constrain. To activate it, tick the box in
preferences/Glyph View titled use shift 45 deg constrain.
- Empty selection counts as the whole glyph was selected.
- It rounds on-curve points which the extension added and ensures that their off-curve points are exactly 45 degrees when rounded to the grid.
- It only modifies selected segments, rest of the data stays untouched.
- It is prepared to support other angles in the future. Possibly also supporting step-checking of safe angles. This is the diagonal's degree of rectangle having ratio of its sides in whole numbers.
- add support for customization of angle where to put extreme point
- add contextual menu for people preferring to work with mouse
