UFOstretch 0.8

One of the main requested features for UFOstretch is the ability to apply the stretch parameters to all glyphs in a font easily.

UFOstretch has now a new ‘Generate All’ toolbarbutton. Which is going to apply all parameters to the complete charset of the first master.

This request also solves an other issue: stretch components! UFOstretch doesn’t support components in a sub-stretch-set. The app decompose them before generating a stretched glyph cause the app cannot know if you added the baseglyph. The complexity is becoming higher when a user wanted to insert the stretch set in an existing UFO. So the ‘Generate All’ button supports components so al your components stay components.


Other changes are

  • support for Lion
  • input field to type your stretched glyphs.
  • check box show both masters allows you to display the two masters. The first master will be on the left * the second master will be on the right of the stretched glyphs.
  • keyboard support for adjusting the sliders:
    • type ‘i’ for selecting the Interpol sliders
    • type ‘s’ for selecting the Scale sliders
    • type ‘t’ for selecting the Tracking slider
    • type ‘k’ for selecting the Skew slider
    • type ‘h’ for selecting the Shift sliders
    • type ‘x’ or ‘y’ for none proportional adjustments
    • arrow key left and right will adjust the sliders by 1
    • ⇧ down adjust by 10
    • ⇧ + ⌘ down adjust by 100
    • ⌥ downs adjust by 0.5
