New to Glyphs! Not sure I am using the software correctly. I’ve designed my alphabet (only capital letters - don’t need lowercase). Next I went to File > Export and set the destination to Library > Application Support > Adobe then set up a new folder called Fonts.
Now when I open up a new software, i.e. Indesign and draw a textbook using the font which finds it’s way to the font list okay, nothing comes out! You can highlight the text and change font and size, but when typing in my designed font, it’s literally invisible.
So I successfully imported the vectors from illustrator into the Glyphs app, so now I have bezier paths for each glyph.
However, all glyphs are still appearing invisible after exporting. (the same issue as before, when I hadn’t imported the vectors). Is there a setting in exporting that I am missing? Here is what is showing up when I try to open it in any Adobe program:
That I am, and yet it’s still showing up as invisible. I even tried the trick suggested of dragging it onto my desktop and downloading it through fontbook (to avoid the error message) and still no go. I’m sort of at a loss as to what I could be doing wrong.
Interestingly enough it’s at least previewing in finder, but it doesn’t preview in fontbook or any Adobe programs.
