I can’t figure out what is going wrong here. I’m exporting a font to the Adobe Fonts folder, but suddenly the export has stopped working. The only error message is a compatibility error:
However, there is no error message saying the font was not able to be exported, or why.
If you are not using it already, try the latest beta please. Go to Glyphs > Preferences > Updates, activate both checkboxes and press the Update button.
Subroutinisation tries to find repeating pattern to compress the outlines to produce smaller files. That can be very slow with certain outlines. So are you sure the export fails? It might just take quite long.
Ah, the glyphs I added were complex shapes, so perhaps that’s why. I am quite certain the export wasn’t working, as the files never exported and once I had added the Disable subroutines parameter it was fine.
Yes, I’m on the latest beta
Can you send me the .glyphs file?
I had a similar issue, and it tuned out to be the fact that a system password is now required to write/change to the target folder. I think this was a Mac OS update thing.
Saw this today in a workshop: the successful export message appears also when the user has no write permissions for the target folder.
Technically, the export went fine in the Temp folder, just moving the file to the target directory failed.
