I had a look at RMX and find it useful specially RMX slant (keeps tangents perpendicular), scaler and axis. I'm wondering if RMX is necessary and if any of you using it find it useful if so giving an example of a difficult situation where it made sense to use it would help. I'm trying to keep my workflow to just illustrator and fontlab, no plugins/macros, etc but there are all these other tools and scripts out there that makes me wonder if I'm missing something. Are there any essential tools and macros that would be useful to run in FLS for Windows, if so which?
Just FYI I'm only sticking to the basic Latin set for now and in the future maybe no more than two weights for a typeface.
For me, the most useful is the Tuner. It helps do this tiny adjustments like making a shape a few units wider or narrower or fix the balance it on is in fear to fall over. (The slanter is not a good solution to make Italics. It works fine for 1 or 2 degrees. With more, the contrast is disturbed to much)
Then there is the Harmoizer. It is great to smoothen your curves.
And last sat but not least the Scaler. It can save a lot time when you need small caps or superscript figures.
(And try to get Illustrator out of you workflow as much as possibel. It's drawing tools as mediocre and going back and forth only slows you down)
Sorry for digging dead topic from grave
