I’ve created a typeface with some fine gradients. I’ve avoided having too many curves and used squares to produce the halftone effect. The average number of nodes is around 3,000 – and I remember being told that 8000 is too many nodes – but I took my eye off the ball and some of the more complex glyphs (Ø, №, ©, ‰) got to 6,000+. The glyphs themselves are very ‘clean’ with no stray paths/nodes.
These larger glyphs export independently without issue. However I can’t export the full typeface (405 glyphs). I’ve been switching export off for groups of glyphs including the larger ones but can only get about 300 to export at once. I’ve left the export dialog box for an hour without success.
Is there a way to get round this or do I simply need to reduce the detail/gradient of the halftone (a big job)?.
