In the thread “Import from FontLab”, Adam Twardoch mentions “packages”. This is the first time I hear about packages. (The Glyphs blog post about v3 does not mention this and I can find no infos in the forum or the learning resources.) After tinkering with the save-dialog I discover the option to save a Glyphs file as a directory structure – a package – similar to UFO “files”.
This is delight to see, as I was just recently trying to improve the Git workflow when working with Glyphs. I want to switch to the package format as soon as possible! I need to :)
- Is this package format ready to be used or still experimental?
- Is it save to move an existing project to this new format?
- And how would I go about changing an existing project? Save As seams to work, but is that the recommended path?
