Moving layered files from Glyphs to Illustrator

Hi can anyone recommend an easier way to open a layered glyphs image from a single cell in glyphs, to an illustrator file that retains the glyphs layers? As of right now I separate each layer to a different cell in glyphs and then type and outline each letter to its own layer in illustrator.

Did you read the layer fonts tutorial?

Why not split the glyph layers into different instances (=fonts)?
