ShowAngledHandles.glyphsReporter

This is a plugin for the Glyphs font editor. It highlights BCPs (‘handles’) which are not horizontal or vertical, quite-but-not-completely-straight line segments, duplicate path segments, crossed handles (i.e., BCPs with more than 100% length), and zero handles. After installation, it will add the menu item View > Show Angled Handles (Ctrl-Y, de: Schräge Anfasser anzeigen, es: Mostrar manejadores inclinados, fr: Afficher les poignées inclinées, zh: ⚖️路径检查工具).

Angled Handles are marked red.

Installation

  1. Open Window > Plugin Manager
  2. Click the Install button next to ’Show Angled Handles’
  3. Restart Glyphs.app

Usage Instructions

  1. Open a glyph in Edit View.
  2. Use View > Show Angled Handles (Ctrl-Y) to toggle the highlighting.

Options

Access display options in the context menu (Ctrl- or right-click). You can set a different keyboard shortcut (i.e., other than Ctrl-Y) by typing this in the Macro window (Window > Macro Panel) and pressing the Run button:

Glyphs.defaults["com.mekkablue.ShowAngledHandles.keyboardShortcut"] = "l"

In this example, the shortcut is changed to Ctrl-L. Instead of l, you can take any other key on your keyboard, of course. Restart Glyphs for the changes to take effect.

Requirements

The plugin requires a recent app version, running on OS X 10.9.1 or later. If it does not work for you, please update your app to the latest version.
