I am using the latest cutting-edge version of Glyphs 2 and need to redo an export for a client project.
This is a 6-master font with 54 instances and I can only successfully export 53 of them as CFF-OTF. On one instance, Narrow Medium Italic, Glyphs hangs. (Note that the upright font is a separate Glyphs file; italic is not an axis. Weight and width are axes).
I have tried several versions of Glyphs 2 including many older, stable ones and the problem continues to occur. There doesn’t seem to be anything strange about the parameters of this particular instance.
I have gone through the steps in the tutorial here. In the
temp directory a subdirectory is created for the troublesome instance, but it does not (yet) contain any files. I have also tried setting the custom parameter
Disable subroutines to true, but this did not help.
I have tried disabling CFF autohinting and it still hangs, so that’s not the problem.
Although the client doesn’t require it, I also tried exporting as TrueType (static OT) and the problem still persists.
By the way, the file does not open in Glyphs 3 at all. Build 3091 simply does nothing when I open the file.
Any idea how I could solve this problem? As this is a client project I cannot post the file in the forum, but would be grateful for any help you could give me.
