I’ve not been able to find answers on google or here.
I have existing font family otf files (9 total .otf files) and I have the license to modify them (SIL OFL license, I have full rights and I respect font ethics, please put this issue aside). I would like to start working on them in Glyphs and produce a new modified typeface (including variable fonts).
What is the recommended workflow for importing existing OTF families into Glyphs?
I’ve tried the following:
- Open all .otf files simultaneously into Glyphs
- Font Info > Masters > Add other as master
The problem is that there are a bunch of incompatible layers for 9 different masters.
Correct me if I am wrong but I don’t have any option around the compatibility of different masters besides going through all the red glyphs and fixing the paths manually.
Am I missing some obvious workflow? Or this is how most people do it?
I wanted to confer here before I sink a lot of time into it
