I don’t want any interpolation. Perhaps I should explain what I’ve been doing so far. I made a regular font. Then in a separate file, I made a bold version of that font, with it’s own rules and it’s own glyphs, in another file, and exported that as a bold instance of the same font. Like that it can be accessed in use by making the text bold.
Now I got into colour, I see this kind of thing in the right side:
By the look of it I’m assuming I can make a copy of the whole regular font and name the copy ‘bold’ or ‘italic’ etc. and then use that menu to manually edit each glyph to edit the bold versions. I assume this means it would be defined as having multiple masters(?) On that point:
- Can I duplicate the entire font and make those duplicates appear on that menu as ‘bold’, just as ‘regular’ appears there? And then edit them there?
- Will interpolation happen automatically? If so can I switch it off?
Yes exactly. Got that to work great when the regular and bold were in different files, using calt code similar to the example I gave above, i.e. sub @letters @letters’ by @letters_alt;
Have not tried yet with all in one file but the idea of having them in the same file is very appealing, would make the work a lot easier. If I know how to make that work. From what I gather you are saying then that this would not be done in the calt function if all in one file?
So I found this window:
I’m guessing you mean I should click the + button and then name the new custom parameter ‘Replace Feature’ - is that correct? What would I do from there?
