RMX Harmonizer with open contour

Is there a reason for RMX Harmonizer producing unharmonious results with open contours? Here’s a before and after showing the strange results at open ends.

You can see it has introduced an unwanted s-curve at the top left.
This appears no matter which Harmonizer button I choose.

(The font creates closed contours on export with a filter parameter.)

The problem is that the first node is aligned to the last node of the path, because it is marked as a smooth curve point. Glyphs does not display the usual green/blue because it is an open path. RMX Harmonizer does not differentiate between open and closed paths.

Workaround: select the point and press Return. This switches it to a corner point. Then run Harmonizer again.

Thanks for the explanation and the workaround!

I’ll see whether I can quickly fix that from my side.

Internally switching all nodes at the beginning or end of an open path to corners should do the trick, right?

Just implemented that tweak. It will included be in the next RMX release.


Thank you Tim, much appreciated.
