Here’s a small FontLab script that randomizes a point’s position within a circle around it. It was made to streamline the process of creating Randomly (see image above).

Here you go:

import math, random def makeRandom (g,nid,_radius): circleRandAngle = random.random() * math.pi *2 circleRandRad = random.random() * _radius n = g[nid] mX = int(math.cos(circleRandAngle) * circleRandRad) mY = int(math.sin(circleRandAngle) * circleRandRad) n.x += mX n.y += mY # Set the radius here RADIUS = 15 g = fl.glyph fl.SetUndo() i = 0 while i < len(g.nodes): n = g[i] if n.selected: makeRandom(g,i,RADIUS) i += 1 fl.UpdateGlyph()
