AutoMetrics - Glyph Selection

Previous  Next

With the Automatic Metrics wizard (select AutoMetrics from the Tools menu), you can generate the bearings for a selection of glyphs.

 

In the left hand panel you see the glyphs, which are present in your font. The right hand panel will contain the glyphs, which you select for modification of bearings.

 

Use the buttons located between the two panels of glyphs to move glyphs:

The top button will transfer all glyphs from the left hand panel to the right hand panel. This is useful if many glyphs need modification. The unwanted can be selected and returned to the left panel.
The second button transfers only selected glyphs from the left panel to the right panel for modification.
The third button returns only selected glyphs from the right panel to the left panel. These glyph bearings, perhaps, require no modification.
The bottom button will transfer all glyphs from the right panel to the left panel.

 

The Next button takes you to the next page where modifications to bearings can be made.
