Glyphs Version Compatibility


If a user is currently working on a project that is using version 2.4 would they be able to transfer that project to a later version? (and vice versa) I.e, 2.6.

I can’t seem to find anything in relation to this on the forums or documentation.


Normally, you just need to open the file in the newer version. And as long as you don’t use features that where introduced in the mean time, you should be able to open it in the older version. There are some changed in behaviour (e.g.: the component alignment changed quite a bit) but the file format didn’t change much. But make sure to test the files. Keep an original file and look at the diff to spot differences. Or git will tell you about changes, too.

Thank you
