Edit a Glyph - Character A

From the Font Overview window we double-click on the cell with the caption "A". Now we see the corresponding Glyph Edit window.


Choose Contour in the Insert menu. During this operation continue to click with the left mouse button to add points. You can create a Bézier curve if you hold down the mouse button while moving it around. Creating points while holding down the Shift key generates straight lines (horizontal or vertical).


Press the Apply button (or click on the first point) to finish the contour. We create two contours to complete the glyph.


Finally make sure the contours are within the visible area (as described in the previous section); if necessary adjust the left and right side-bearings.

We close the Glyph Edit window to return to the Font Overview window.
