Is it possible to rotate from a point, and not just kind of on a point as I currently do by zooming in, i.e. like in Illustrator, “Snap to Point” allows you to rotate from the point.
Check out the Paths > Rotate around anchor script:
I’ve followed the installation instructions but the vanilla dependant scripts don’t work?
(i know vanilla is on my system since I have used other programs that require vanilla)
I posted renewed installation instructions two days ago. Try those.
If the problem persists, can you paste the error message you get?
I just tried those instructions, there’s no error message, it’s just that nothing happens.
Open Window > Macro, please. What is reported there when you run the script?
Ah, it can’t find Vanilla:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “Rotate around anchor.py”, line 6, in
ImportError: No module named vanilla
Run these commands in Terminal:
sudo rsync -aE 2.7/site-packages/* 2.6/site-packages/
Then, try again.
still can’t find Vanilla, I wonder if this has to do with how I previously installed Vanilla, python etc?
Glyphs needs Vanilla to be installed for Python 2.6. Perhaps you want to go through the steps described in the readme to re-install it.
I managed to find where Python was installing on my system which was here:
I copied Vanilla into the latter and it worked!
Maybe of use to other users with difficulties with Vanilla. Thanks for your help.
