Regular in File Name ...again

Again… I see this thread Is there a way to remove -Regular for the font name?

Using 3.1
The only way I seem to be able to do this is creating an instance and repeat the name. The my font is call ‘Font-Font’ for example.

You can add a “fileName” parameter to overwrite the default. And if you use a token, you don’t need to repeat the actual name:

Thanks for the response George.

For the dumbest kid in the room, Do I add the custom parameter like I’ve done? I tried this in both ‘Font’ and "Masters’, I still get the same result. Also, I have no idea what you’re talking about when you mention using a token?

You need to add it in the instances (in exports).

What Georg meant by token is using {{{fontName}}}. This means you don’t need to write the actual font name (and change it depending on project or update).

Since what is exported is whatever you define in Font Info > Exports, you need to add this custom parameter to every exported instance in order for it to apply.

Thank you for you help guys. I think I’ve got it.

This is great! Thanks @GeorgSeifert
