Say I want to embolden something manually. With horizontal and vertical stems, I can use the info widget thing to just set a new length for a path. This is not really possible with diagonal stems (e.g. the asterisk). How would I do that?
- Constrain H-V with lock symbol
- use up/down arrows in width or height value fields
- You can see segment length with one of the plugins from the plugin manager
Okay, and how do I e.g. thin slashlongcomb while keeping the slant?
You can drag two end points freehandedly, and the nodes should snap into the diagonal angle.
