I am working (again??!!) on yet another grunge style font for a client and after the worthy and wonderful support I got from this forum for the last project of this kind I have again reached a point of not knowing how to solve this: I followed everything I know and could find on the problems and workarounds typical for grungy fonts and – knowing the node count of this new monster is in the crazy numbers (1500 – 8000) – still don’t seem to find a way to make glyphs actually render a font file. It always crashes. I feel I need to reduce the node amount significantly while still maintaining most of the desired look, but even trying to use filters/plugins to get rid of short segments makes Glyphs freeze and my (strong) Mac Book Pro take a knee. I have attached the files. At this point I feel it could even make sense to start the vectorization of the basic grunge texture anew and begin reducing path/node count before using glyphs. Or am I lost? Thank you so much in advance!
