I’m lately thinking about using Drawbot (plugin) to generate proofs of the current font I’m working on and I was wondering which could be the best option to get the paths of a specific layer and draw them without having to export and install the font. Something like a pen object that would get each path’s coordinates to draw them.
Thank you so much.
something like is:
should work. You need to do the layout yourself.
Great! Thanks a lot again, Georg!
Also, since I’m iterating through all of the layers in font’s selection, is there a way to get only the frontmost layer of each master? Now I’m getting also the copies that I’ve made during the process and I would like to draw only the ones that are currently used by each master.
layer = glyph.layers[master.id]
Thank you so much Georg, this worked pretty well. Since this is a proof that I’m preparing for selected glyphs in current font, some of them are build our of components (f.e.: accented characters) but apparently it is not drawing them probably because they are not understood by the program as “paths”. How could I draw them?
I’ve found it, thanks still!
It should be
It worked even better than I did. Thanks a lot, Georg.
