I have imported images of sketched type into glyphs, but when I export as an OTF there is nothing there. How can I export images as a typeface?
This is not possible. You can try making an SVG font, but exporting static images in a font is not possible. You can use autotrace or Fontself to quickly transform your images into vector outlines.
is it possible to create these vector outlines in adobe illustrator and simply drag them into glyphs?
