A RoboFont extension to scale points, absolutely!
- it adds option to Inspector, where you can choose if you wish to scale absolutely or not.
- it saves state of your latest option, so you don't have to always set it with opening a new inspector.
- it supports mathematical operations and vertical alignment variables
syntax for absolute scaling
200sets current selection's width to 200 units
+20adds 20 units to current dimension
+20/2adds 20 divided by two to current dimension
asets current dimension to value of ascender, counted from baseline
Asets current dimension to value of ascender's blue zone, counted from baseline
A+Bsets current dimension to value of ascender's blue zone + baselines's blue zone
A+Dsets current dimension to value of ascenders's blue zone + descender's blue zone. This will result into scaling that goes from baseline blue zone to ascender's blue zone
NOTE: Blue zones must be set for given font if you desire to use this syntax. If no blue zones are set, then
A = a.
syntax for absolute transforming
- works the same as the one for absolute scaling
- live transform will show absolute values as well
input window will support math operations and variable of vertical metrics. Thanks, Renan! shortcuts for scaling in both directions on both axes
history of versions
- 0.5 - dedicated input cells, absolute set, available shortcuts to run current width/height settings
- 0.4 - supports syntax
- 0.3 - extension now has memory for inputs of absolute and relative scaling. Scale absolutely, go relative and then back to absolute and your values are loaded back. When you are scaling a contour, the extension shows absolute width and height in current scale transformation settings, the same as you scale in relative mode.
- 0.2 - bug fix, wrong plist
- 0.1 - initial version
For the absolute scalers :)
