New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I understand that "Nodes at Extremes" are a necessary part of hinting.
And though I do NOT understand the subtleties of hinting (I just click F7) putting nodes at extremes has broadly become the way I draw most curves anyway.
When my glyph has a broad curves at the extremes or corners that turn at the extremes, everything is honky dory...
But things don't always work out that way:
When I put nodes at the extremes of tiny curves (like in A,V and W glyphs with diagonals that have rounded edges) the curve gets wobbly.
Do I need to turn my UPM up to 2000 to handle the fidelity for these fine curves?
Or can I just not worry about it and let my nodes just be really close to the extremes in those few cases?
I DO plan to generate both OT type 1 and Truetype eventually...
