Complex drop shadows and textured effects at export


#21

I’m using Version 2.5b (1114)


#22

I see. This is just how the built-in Offset Curve Filter handles some acute angles in some situations. Not much I can do about it at the moment.

What you can do in postprocessing, is select the two points and choose Make Corner from the context menu or the Paths > Other menu.


#23

Will do.

Programmer geniuses: What about my “apply effects to layers” idea? (scroll up). Is that possible, anyone?


#24

Rainer: There’s a “decompose components” function in there which makes it hard to apply font-wide. Can we remove it? Thanks.


#25

You mean the original outline should be kept as much as possible? I can try.


#26

Shadow Filter works fine on gylphs paths;
But I’m unable to activate as a Custom Parameter !

Did I miss something here?


#27

Thanks!


#28

When you export, there must be an error message in Macro Window.


#29

ֿNot really; all instances were exported successfully; no effects though!


#30

Cannot reproduce in Glyphs 2.5b (1114). Custom parameter works as expected.


#31

May I send you a sample file?


#32

Please.


#33

@mekkablue I just realized the misunderstanding after you sent back the Glyphs sample file;
I meant applied custom parameters of Rimmer & Shadow filters do not appear in the Instance preview; however it shows with other filters such as Round Corners & Hatch-outline!
And you’ve pointed out a successful output after export not Instance Preview.


#34

I see. Only built in filters can be displayed in the Instance preview.


#35

How to avoid repetition of effects over composite glyphs where components have already accepted those effects?
On the other hand; this is slowing Preview drastically; but no distortions appear by output !!


#36

I check that. Could you send me the file?


#37

sure
