I’m trying to make a geometric sans-serif using automatic filters to add offset curves. I’m then testing this font by exporting it to a file where it can be picked up by an @font-face block and shown in a browser. I’ve got letters for the /
How do you install the font?

I’m exporting to ~/Dropbox/Projects/AbbotsMortonExperiment/AbbotsMortonExperiment-Regular.otf and the HTML file I’m using to preview the font in simply picks it up with
The page is then reloaded automatically for me using LiveReload.
I don’t think this font has ever been given to Font Book.
I’ve added the Remove Overlaps filter, so now my filters look like this:
Filter = “GlyphsFilterOffsetCurve; 50; 50; 1; 0.5;”;
Filter = “GlyphsFilterRemoveOverlap;”;
This seems to make the glyph generation somewhat more reliable, but it seems like I need to export twice for a proper .otf file to get generated.
My current workflow is something like this:
- adjust a glyph (say, zoo-Qs)
- press F5 (I’ve bound this to Update Glyph Info)
Yes, the Offset Curve parameter usually needs a second go. But then it works.
