I want to be able to have more control on the exported information of my fonts (see screenshot).
Naming font/file without adding the ‘Style’ to the name when exporting. Seen it before with some existing fonts that ‘Style’ is set to ‘Regular’, but it hasn’t effect on the font/file naming. Imagine a font that hasn’t regular, bold or medium instance. In this example the ‘Style’ should be ‘Pixel’?
Postscript Naming? (same as above situation).
How to customize the output of ‘Unique name’?
Clean version output.
Vendor custom output?
What custom parameters can be used for this? I have the latest GlyphsApp running.
Maybe someone can share a example file with just the right information setup? Any help is much appreciated.
This is what i see when exporting a example font and look up the summary information:
Actually I found a case where it does matter. If you have multiple Rename Glyphs parameters! So I tried to make something work with only one of the Rename Glyphs. That did not work. Only after implementing 2 of them and switching their order back and for, I figured that this totally has an effect.
Unfortunately there is still something weird happening with the instance preview. It doesn’t show what happens in the final export. So I always need to export and open the .otf to check the result.
@GeorgSeifert I sent you a file last Friday which shows that problem. Only the approach with two Rename Glyphs parameters is a new discovery from today, so if you need a sample setup, please let me know.
OK, here is a sample of an arbitrary font’s info (out of FontExplorer, in red my comments). Is the Vendor-URL actually the “Hersteller-URL”? I guess I mixed up “Hersteller” and “Lieferant”. Sorry for being not so clear before.
