Interpolation in script typeface


#1

Hi,

I’m having a problem with a script typeface (with 2 masters, 4 instances).
When I look at the glyphs file everything seems fine but on some exported weights there’s a little bump in the connections… any idea what this might be and how to fix it?

Thanks!

Can you post a screenshot?

Sure! This only happens with the exported instances.

You mean the small corner on the connection. That can happen because if rounding errors. So you need to draw the connection in a way that this would be less visible by adding an egg shape to the end of the connector on the a and s. When those overlap an there is a slight misalignment it is not visible.


#5

yes I mean that. So do I have to do what you suggested in the exported file only?


#6

No, draw your masters like this.

Thanks Georg!

Hi again Georg,
I tried to figure out by myself what you meant with egg shape and fix this but I’m afraid I can’t.
Can you please clarify (or exemplify with a picture or something) what you meant?

I believe rounded stroke endings like Noodler would do them.

Thank you!
