As described in the Tutorial for creating variable fonts there are two Custom Parameters to setup the STAT table:
- Style Name as STAT entry
- Elidable STAT Axis Value name
This generates a STAT table with Axis value table format 1
I’m interested in generating variable fonts with Axis value table format 2 and am currently editing the STAT table by hand after export. So for me it would make sense to be able to export format 2 tables directly from Glyphs.
Maybe by adding additional Custom Parameters in the “Exports” section:
- FormatIdentifier (needs to be set to “2”)
Do you think that exporting a format 2 table directly from Glyphs is useful for Users in general?
