Adding a dingbat font to a family

This might be a stupid question, but I can’t figure out how to add icons as an instance in a family… If i make a new master, I will came up with lots of glyphs I don’t need. The font is about 600 glyphs and my dingbats is just 20 icons… do I need to do a separate file?


Separate file probably makes most sense, or are you interpolating the icons as well?
But you can work with the Keep Glyphs parameter.

no interpolation, just dingbats. What is that parameter for?

It is not easy to say without knowing the file structure of you family. Do you have one file for each weight or all in one file.
As fare I can imagine, adding a master is not useful.

Yes, I solved by making a new file and works fine. Thanks
