  2. Add a background image as a reference.

    Many font designers draw a font on paper first before putting it through an editor like Glyphr. Allowing a background image to be uploaded as reference would greatly help the process of designing font.

  3. Paths with stroke thickness

    Fonts don't support paths with stroke thickness, only fill. But, we could allow you to specify a path with stroke thickness, then when exporting a font, that path's stroke could be outlined to create a filled shape.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. Batch import SVGs from a folder

    For example, instead of importing each SVG individually for each letter, have them named A.svg, a.svg, B.svg, etc. Then, batch import the folder and they get assigned automatically.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Library of Shapes?

    Shapes and components should be separate. Glyphs are (or can) be made of components. Components are made of shapes. I shouldn't need to go to a glyph to copy a shape--I should be able to select from a list of stored shapes to create a new component (just like I can select a component to make a new glyph. I don't see a library of shapes.

  19. Ability to move baseline for all characters / move all characters

    It would be nice if there was a button to move all characters up or down, to be able to fix fonts with the wrong baseline aka with characters appearing to high or too low.

  20. Edit Guide colors and position values in the Glyph (guides) screen

    The 'system guide' lines are too dim even when transparency is turned off. I'd like to be able to select my own guide colors on the Glyph Edit screen, by clicking on the orange color blocks. A pop-up color selector box would be perfect. Keep the transparency adjustment.

    Also, make the guide position values adjustable on that screen, because I can see the glyph while adjusting (for a new font).
