Find the installation and troubleshoot guide here.
How To Use:
- Toggle via View > Show Presenter
- Or just use the shortcut
ctrl+ opt+ shift+ P
Get it here:
- Draw Shadow in white when background is black
- Remember the selected colors and display settings
- Two options for the screenshot dimensions:
Portrait 1080×1920 for stories
- New additional node shape: filled round
- Add option to hide the dimmed screenshot-surrounding area. Good for process screen recordings.
>>> hidden flag: run
Glyphs.defaults["com.markfromberg.presenter.drawFrame"] = False(or ... = True) in the Macro Panel to toggle it and deactivate and reactivate the Presenter Plugin.
- Make screenshot frame visible when background is black
- Fix crash when choosing named colors from “Color Palettes” or “Pencils”
- Fix nodes’ stroke width being too fat in deep zooms
- New release
These will be solved in future updates:
- For optimal results, the shown frame should always be fully visible when you click on "Grab Screenshot".
- Sometimes the GlyphsApp own nodes might disappear. In that case just hit
cmd+ shift+ N(Or View > SHow Nodes) to activate their display again.
- Certain color setups look more crips than others on Instagram. But that’s their fault.
