  1. The ability to import .PNG, Bitmp, and other transparent image types.

    For some people, like my self, we may want to create entirely new letters with complex curves and symbols; therefore it would be nice to, say, draw the symbol on a piece of paper, scan it, edit it with a third-party "paint editor," then upload the resulting image into Glyphr. A three month font type, could be cut down to anywhere from fifteen minutes to a few hours. One imager, per letter/symbol/number.

    • Grid / Guide snapping

      It's really nice to have all those guide and grid options, but they would be of much more use if glyphr actually snapped to those during editing (moving / scaling, etc.)

        • The ability to add background image.

          Say, you've drawn character on a piece of paper and want to make something similar in editor. It would be much easier to do stuff if you could drag and drop photo of the character to the background of the main content area and then be guided by it through out the work. Of course, you should be able to adjust it according to grid.

                      • "Lock Aspect Ratio" enabled by default, or enabled by shortcut

                        Currently, the "Lock Aspect Ratio" box is unchecked by default. But usually when moving or resizing shapes, it's very important to keep the aspect ratio locked. It would be great to have this enabled by default, or be able to temporarily engage it with a shortcut (Like holding shift as with Illustrator/Photoshop/etc).

                        • Missing character glyph

                          Needs a way to designate/design missing character glyph to show when character is not yet created in font. For now all font I create in Glyphr represent missing characters as tall rectangles that sometimes are taller than text lines.

                          • Single line fonts

                            Ability to make glyphs based on path stroke, not by using fill, as Single Line Font, export it in format similar to Rapahel cufon font, (it would be nice to have exported font gyphs having 0,0 coordinates at top, similar to svg image) I'm using adobe illustrator to design single line gyphs, then exporting them as svg, mapping to codePoint, and formatting them in json format for my use. It's a lot time consuming, iterative and irritative task. I would love to see your positive response on my idea.
                            Thank you )

                            • Please, add an option to clear a glyph or to select all shapes to delete.

                              It's painful to use when you need to delete multiple shapes one by one.

                              • More hotkeys/shortcuts

                                More hotkeys, perhaps use "n" to select the "add point tool" since "n" is already nest to "b" and "v", which are hotkeys for the path and shape edit tools.

                                Also, hotkeys for the "new shape" tools would be nice, maybe "z" "x" "c" or "f" "g" "h" or "g" "h" "j"? something close to the other tool hotkeys would be best probably.

                                Finally a shortcut to import a .svg glyph when your in the glyph edit screen (and have it automagically import into the glyph you already had selected) would be nice. Perhaps "ctrl+i"?

                                TL;DR: More shortcuts and hotkeys…

                                  • Set handle angle in degrees, and be able to lock the handle angle

                                    Currently handles can be locked vertically or horizontally. This would enable you to lock a handle to any arbitrary angle.

                                      • Just discovered this and LOVE it.

                                        It would be great if you could create rounded corner rectangles. Also the ability to see other characters as you editing / constructing a particular character would be lovely.
