Hi, I’ve exported a few fonts now with Glyphs (great program) but this time I’m having some trouble with naming… It’s just one Regular style in the family right now, and when I exported for testing (via Adobe fonts folder), Indesign shows it correctly: FamilyName - Regular (style)… but Illustrator is duplicating the Regular name… so it shows: FamilyName Regular - Regular (style).
The Mac info dialogue shows the .otf file having the full name as FamilyName Regular, but “Regular” is not included in my family name in Glyphs (only in the style Instance).
I just found out that this is a feature in newer versions of Adobe Illustrator: If your family only consists of one style, the complete font name (including style name) is displayed in the family drop down.
If you don’t like that, you can do two things: call Adobe and complain, or add a second style to your font family.
Thanks for looking into that and some possible next steps. At first glance, can’t say I’m a fan of how AI is handling single styles like that… just looks redundant in the menu. But I’d be curious what their reasoning is.
You’re right, when a second style is added to a single family, then it cleans it up for the most part (even in non-Adobe software).
