Question: I have an extensive family I need to open up a bit in the lighter weights. To avoid line breaks for existing users, I plan to condense it very slightly too. So, I’m wondering what the best way to do this is.
If I add a few parameters on export - say, +5 each side on the side bearings (which I assume will correspond exactly to adding +10 tracking in Indesign?) and reduce the width 97%, where do I do this - in the “Custom Parameter” window in “Instances” (of which there are many) or in the “Custom Parameter” window in Masters?
Can I do this and be confident that there will be no unexpected movement of components (in other words, are the parameters applied after or before the font has been decomposed), requiring me to open and check every exported font?
This method seems easier than selecting all the glyphs and applying it via Transformations in the font window.
Thanks Rainer, Georg.
