Font lab scaling/parallel question

Aleme's picture

Hi! I am trying to scale down my font to 80% and then use action >Effect>Parallel to
create horizontal and vertical stem variation. but I get a lot of nodes and it loses its
shape too. Does anyone tell me how to to this in better way &close to my original shape ?
is their Python script available for this?
Thank you .

Don't know about a script, but you also might try Expand Path, then deleting the outer contour...

You might try RMX Scaler, a part of the RMX 1.6 set?

Generally, scaling down brings rounding errors and point bloat comes from expand path. There is always cleanup but "Optimize" then RMX Harmonizer give you a good start.
