I’m making a dot font - it is completely made in illustrator and I’ve now imported it into Glyphs. The problem is some of the dots are coming out slightly warped when I move the paths.
It’s strange - not all of them just one in three or so. It is one side is pushed in or out slightly.
They are perfect in illustrator - get pasted perfectly in glyphs, but when I move them (as a group) one or two will react strangely.
Fullversion - latest update.
When I say move them I mean select all then hold shift and arrow keys as well as moving with mouse.
Your path directions are wrong. Layers > Correct Path Directions on all glyphs.
Can you check if it’s perhaps two paths exactly on top of each other? Technically, that would be an overlap. At export time, Glyphs tries to remove overlaps, and these distorted paths may be the result of that.
Is it possible that these circles are very small? At rasterization, curves are processed into short straight segments called subpaths. For Postscript outlines, there is a technical limit to how many subpaths can be displayed, and that limit can be reached quickly if you have many very small curved elements in a glyph.
So, this is a display problem of the font renderer that Illustrator uses. It tries to optimize the screen display of fonts, but is just not built for this kind of small element. All you can do is make sure you have no hinting at export time. So, don't worry, it's just a screen display problem.
