Tutorial on Multiple Masters and Italics

Hi Georg,

I’m wondering if you could do a quick video on how to set up multiple masters and how to interpolate.

Also maybe another video on how to create italics once you have finished your Roman characters?



Did you read the manual about the Multiple Master setup?

To start a italic version, copy the file and rename it.
Then select some glyphs and select Filter > Transformations > Transform. Put in a italic angle and make sure that the says “cursify” not “slant”. This will give you a starting point for your drawings.

Videos take quite some time to produce. Here’s a blog entry on how to create an Oblique, a good starting point for your Italic: http://glyphsapp.com/blog/easy-oblique/
