Take your Glyphs skills to the next level in a half-day session loaded with tips, tricks and the gems hidden in the depths of your favourite font editor. Topics covered include:

  • paths: explore more efficient or alternate drawing techniques: outside corners, masks, hidden tool tricks
  • harmonizing: quickly achieve the perfect curve, understand nudging
  • batch-editing: multiplying shapes, mass transformations, understand the Paste Special menu
  • extensions for finding, or better, avoiding mistakes from the start
  • components: put smart components to good use, apply corner, cap and segment components, use brushes, make the most of auto-alignment

…and more! Bring your fonts and show us your toughest nut to crack, and we will figure out a workflow that gets the job done smoothly.
