About Glyphsapp

After giving Glyphsapp 3 try, it is very complicated to work with, there are no tools to convert drawing paths to curves or straight lines, no way to add guide lines, in other the user interface is difficult to navigate.

Yours truly,

Option-clicking on a straight line converts it to a curve.
Selecting a bezier handle and deleting it converts a curve to a straight line.

Right-click and choose “Add guide” to add a guide line.

@colorama take a look at the tutorials first. This one explains all the curves and straights: https://glyphsapp.com/learn/sketching

I understand Glyphs must not be really intuitive if you just dive in without any prior knowledge of the program, but the tutorials and the forum are here to help you!

Or look at the videos:

They have been made for older versions of the app, but the principle is the same.
