Toolbars - Background Image

You can add a background image on a Glyph Edit window through the Background toolbar. It can help you with your glyph design. It can be toggled on and off using the F9 shortcut key, but is available only in the Glyph Edit window.

 

Click the Copy from current glyph button to place a copy of the current outline as background image. To add a background image paste an image from the clipboard, or click the Load button and select the image you want to use. Use the position and scale fields to move and scale the image. Check the Monochrome box, to show the background image in one color.

 

The convert to contours button converts the raster based image into vector based contour which will become part of the existing glyph outline.
