Is there a custom parameter to add to sidebearings?


#1

I am exporting several instances of a monoline font. The difference is stroke thickness. The side bearings are affected as the stroke gets thicker. Everything sets tighter. Is there a way to add to the left and right sidebearings of an instance through a custom parameter?

Yup!

Go to Filter > Transformations, and then go to the Metrics tab. From there, choose how much you’d like to add to the side bearings, and then click on the gear icon to copy the custom parameters. Lastly, paste that into your Instance’s custom parameters.

Thanks! I will try it.
