Create a rounded "weight?"

What would be the proper workflow to create a separate weight where the only difference is that the corners of the glyphs have been rounded? Currently I’m managing two separate files, but it’s becoming difficult to make minor changes to things like kerning pairs and keep both files in sync manually.

  1. Add an instance in your Font Info and name it ‘Rounded’.
  2. In the same instance, add a new Custom Parameter: Property=“Filter”, Value=“GlyphsFilterRoundCorner; 35; 1”

Change 35 to the radius you wish.
If you don’t want visual correction, change the 1 to 0.

Someone really needs to start a blog that shows off cool tricks like this.

In this case, it’s in the manual, page 14. :wink:

There’s a mistake in the manual. It lists the filter as “GyphsFilterRoundCorner”. GYPHS.

Thanks, I corrected it for the next release.
