Ring in the new year with Beta 5.1

more pen tool

Unfortunately, this reference is 15 years old, which makes me feel old.  Fortunately, we had tons of great feedback on Beta 5.  So we turned around and addressed some of the bugs that people helped us find. Thank You!!

And, since we couldn’t help ourselves, we added some shiny new stuff, too.  We made some performance enhancements that should make using the canvas more buttery-smooth.

But more noticeably, we revamped the canvas editing experience with some new custom cursors, and a new “Add Path Point” pen tool.  This allows you to add a new point anywhere along a path without changing the shape of the curve.  Bezier math was learned, a good time was had by all.

Sometime in the new year we’ll start on Beta 6 in earnest… we were thinkin’ Direct Export to OTF, Better Test Drive Experience, and maybe some Multi-Select?  Haven’t decided for sure yet, but you can vote for new features and let us know what you think over at glyphrstudio.uservoice.com.

Until then, head over to the main Glyphr Studio site to start using Beta 5.1 today!  Happy New Year!
