Excessive anchor points when outlining in Illustrator


When I create outlines in Illustrator I get way more anchor points on my glyphs than I had in Glyphs.
What am I doing wrong?


Did you export as .ttf?

No, it’s a variable typeface.

Then it is .ttf. Converting it to TrueType and back to Cubic outlines will introduce those points.

Thanks, so a variable typeface is always TTF?

Glyphs only supports the TrueType variant. Variable fonts with cubic outlines are only very recently possible and not as widely supported, yet.

Okay thanks Georg, Glyphs rocks!
