Add component with Layer Geek

Hi there

I am currently working on an icon font and want to export all icons in two variants. 1. in black, 2. in white in a circle.
Thanks to separate instances and custom parameter, this should be possible, right? With Layer Geek I get the desired result. Unfortunately only the instance preview works. The component (the circle) is missing in the exported .otf file. I am testing the font with the Adobe font folder. Am I doing something wrong?

Filter = “LayerGeek; addComponent_(GSComponent(“Circle”));”;

Thanks in advance for your help!

Ah, I solved it! With an additional «LayerGeek; decomposeComponents» custom parameter at the end I get the desired result in InDesign.

I would do:

addComponent_(GSComponent("A"));decomposeComponents;correctPathDirection

Oh yes, thank you!
