Hi! Is there a way to highlight corner components even further? Currently, it has this subtle blue glow, but is there perhaps a line of script I can paste into the macro panel to make it glow larger and more noticeable/solid?
I added the possibility to manually change the color. It will not be in the UI but can be set from a script.
In version 3.2, you will be able to do this:
Glyphs.colorDefaults["GSCornerHightLight"] = NSColor.colorWithRed_green_blue_alpha_(0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.3) Glyphs.colorDefaults["GSCornerHightLightSelected"] = NSColor.colorWithRed_green_blue_alpha_(0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.6) Glyphs.colorDefaults["GSCornerHightLightDark"] = NSColor.colorWithRed_green_blue_alpha_(0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.3) Glyphs.colorDefaults["GSCornerHightLightSelectedDark"] = NSColor.colorWithRed_green_blue_alpha_(0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.6)
After running this in the macro window (with your own color numbers), you need to restart Glyphs to see it in effect.
Thank you @GeorgSeifert ! When will we be able to get 3.2? I checked my version of Glyphs and it’s currently at 3.1 (3133), also checked for updates and it said this is the newest version. Looking forward to trying this trick out
The update is currently prepared and in early testing. It will take some more time to finish it.
Just a thing about corner component.
I’m working an on project where in some masters I gather all my points of serif components to create a Sans version. In this situation it’s really complicated to manipule corner component.
I know it’s a rare situation, but it could be really useful to add a visual indicator specially in this case.
Something trigger in that way :
font = Glyphs.font nodeCoordonate =  for shape in font.selectedLayers.shapes: for node in shape.nodes: nodeCoordonate.extend(node.position) if len(set(nodeCoordonate)) == 2 or len(set(nodeCoordonate)) == 1: print("All points are stacked\n Show extra glow in this case") else: pass
When the corner is too small, it was supposed to display a gray bubble (like it was in Glyphs 2). I fixed this. It will look like this now:
Hi, I want to highlight only the corner components with negative scale in a different color. Is that possible?
for corner in layer.hints : if corner.isCorner : if corner.scale.x < 0 or corner.scale.y < 0 : print(i.name, ii.name, iii.name, iii.scale.x, iii.scale.y, sep = "\t") # change the highlight of color for the corner component
