I’m at the beginning of a project that’s going to need a some python to generate instances. The idea is to use a typeface already designed and deform it using the
transform matrix to deform it in different ways in different instances.
So here comes the question: since I would like to write a script with UI (like Roughenizer) and copy its different parameters to different instances, how would you add this “new” filter? I read this article to understand the logic of custom parameters and there’s this line of text:
You can also enter the property name with the keyboard. The property will remain grey until Glyphs recognizes it as a registered parameter name.
Should I access the
customInstanceParameters.plist and add it there? In that case, how does each filter which value is linked to which one from the UI?
