Update to Custom Font Outlines Only to Version 0.04

Post#1 by skinnyhouse » 24 Apr 2021, 06:37


This update fixes one or two outstanding issues and adds a new option to allow a user to decide how to name a suffix for any character paths that may be generated.

Download and install into your user plug-ins folder. If you require help using the filter there is a small amount of information available in the Custom Font Tool Guide available from the link below to Custom Font Tools.

The new option can be seen below...

Skinnyhouse,

I did some tests with version 0.04 and only joys!

The change in the pre-alignment of the layer before 'pruning' was very good.

I tried to find out what the real effect that the option "Un-Trim letter layer" produces, but although I tried I did not detect any change, either with the option selected as NO or as YES.

Thanks for the continuous improvements!

Krikor:

Relieved that it is useful to you in your endeavours.

The untrim option is for use when distressing/adding deformations to the shape of the path/selection.
Sometimes the distressed outline no longer fits the letter body and appears to leave gaps. This option can (sometimes) improve the results.
Too much distress creates rather unpleasantly jagged outlines (paths).
I don't think this will be of any use to you (or most people).
