Consistent ink traps in a variable font

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if how it’s possible to keep ink traps consistent throughout a variable font. I want to keep a consistent ink trap of 2 points like in the 2 master weights. Problem is, when I create a brace layer to check on the instances (for example bold), the ink trap is reduced from 2 points to 0. My guess is, this has to do with the open corners, which are recommended for clean interpolation. Are there any suggestions?

As always thanks a lot!




…which are recommended for clean interpolation

They are recommended for correcting otherwise wrong interpolation; is it wrong if you just remove them? :slight_smile:

I thought this was mandatory. But makes sense, to remove the open corners when the OTVar Player shows a clean interpolation.

Thanks Alexs
