  • Patent number: 10922863
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve efficiently generating and/or modifying an outline of electronic text. For example, a system obtains data indicating a glyph identifier associated with a first glyph of a plurality of glyphs displayed via a graphical user interface. The system retrieves a first outline of the first glyph from a cache using the glyph identifier and determines a transformation matrix associated with the first outline of the first glyph. The system generates first base art data for the first glyph, the first base art data including the first outline of the first glyph and the transformation matrix. The system converts the first glyph into the first outline based at least in part on the first base art data and then displays the first outline via the graphical user interface.

  • Publication number: 20210042381
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and non-transitory computer readable storage media are disclosed for selectively modifying live digital vector glyphs. For example, the disclosed system can use a vector description of a live vector glyph having a plurality of regions defined by a plurality of paths to determine a vector document object model including style information for the paths. The disclosed system can extract a color for a selected region from the style information for the paths (e.g., from a stylesheet) and then change the extracted color to a selected color. After modifying the color, the disclosed system can then generate an updated vector description with the modified region color and render the updated live vector glyph at a client device. The disclosed system thus updates the live vector glyph while maintaining the glyph as a live glyph.

  • Publication number: 20210012547
    Abstract: In implementations of glyph weight modification, a glyph modification system represents an outline of an unmodified glyph as segments having start points and endpoints. The segments have directions based on the start points and the endpoints such that an endpoint of a segment is a start point of another segment. The system identifies features of the unmodified glyph based on the segment directions. A property of the unmodified glyph can be modified by changing coordinates of points of the segments based on the identified features. The glyph modification system generates a modified glyph having the modified property using the points of the segments with the changed coordinates.

  • Patent number: 10839139
    Abstract: Glyph aware snapping is described. A content processing system receives a selection input to select a glyph from text content presented via a user interface of a content editing application. Responsive to this, the content processing system generates and presents snapping guidelines in relation to the glyph while preserving an ability of the glyph to be editable using text editing tools. These snapping guidelines correspond to an identified subset of linear segments of the glyph and enable the content processing system to snap a focus (e.g., a cursor) of a graphics editing tool from a position proximate the snapping guidelines to a position on the snapping guidelines. This enables the content processing system to generate graphical content that aligns with the snapping guidelines and can be attached to the glyph based on the alignment—without destroying the ability of the text content to be editable using text editing tools.

  • Publication number: 20200272689
    Abstract: In implementations of vector-based glyph style transfer, a style transfer system transfers a modification of a modified glyph to an additional glyph. The system identifies the modification by comparing the modified glyph to a corresponding unmodified glyph. In one or more implementations, this includes identifying similar segments of the additional glyph based on a style transfer policy, which defines conditions for transferring the modification to the additional glyph. The system transfers the modification to the additional glyph by mapping the modification to the similar segments.

  • Publication number: 20200097525
    Abstract: Live text glyph modification is described. A content processing system receives a selection input to select a glyph via a user interface of a content editing application. Responsive to this selection, the content processing system generates an outline of the glyph's geometry and enables modification of the outline relative to left-bearing, right-bearing, and baseline positions for the glyph, which define the glyph's position relative to other glyphs of the text content. Using the modified outline, the content processing system generates a modified glyph, which may be stored in a global storage resource and added to a stylistic set for the font type of the original glyph. This enables the content processing system to generate and store modified glyph geometries that can be readily interchanged with original glyph geometries during the creation of text content—without destroying the ability to edit the text content using conventional text editing tools.

  • Publication number: 20200066019
    Abstract: An object is coupled to a glyph in a text segment, while maintaining the text segment as editable. The text segment includes glyphs, which are graphical representations of characters. Each glyph is defined internally in the form of path information, which includes one or more points corresponding to the outline of the glyph. The path information for the text segment is determined and utilized in order to facilitate the coupling of an object with the text segment. The text segment remains editable as text subsequent to such coupling.

  • Patent number: 10540741
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve angular snapping of a target graphical object to a position in a digital artboard. For instance, a computing system determines a reference angle identifying an orientation of a target graphical object to be placed within an input graphic. The computing system also defines a tolerance region that overlaps the target graphical object and extends along an axis parallel to the reference angle. The computing system determines that at least two graphical objects are within the tolerance region. The computing system computes, for the target graphical object, a placement position on the axis. The placement position is computed based on a distance between the reference graphical objects. The computing system updates the graphical interface by placing the target graphical object within the input graphic at the placement position.

  • Patent number: 10366518
    Abstract: Techniques and systems are described to extend text on a path. The path, for instance, may be user specified and configured to control placement of subsequent text in a user interface. During entry of the text, the computing device detects that the text inputs overflow the input path. In response, the computing device generates a path that is linked to the input path to include the text that is to overflow the input path, e.g., through the use of threading. The generated path is then plotted in the user interface for inclusion of the overflow of text in the user interface, such as to mimic a shape of the input path after translation or scaling at the translated location.
