Variable font point structure

Hello, I am wondering how to solve a specific drawing problem. I have the following two shapes:


I thus want to use the open corners to interpolate between a shape with a straight segment (first screenshot) and one with the curve being cut off (second screenshot). Is this possible? Currently, my solution gives me this in the second master:

Using two extra alternate layers seems to be quite a hassle, but I assume it’s the only possibilty…?

This is not possible to export as a variable font. Static instance are fine.

You need to add a bracket layer to switch shapes when you start to cut into the round part.

I solved it using intermediate layers only:

Master 1:

Intermediate layer 1:

Intermediate layer 2:

Master 2:

Interesting approach, but same thing in 1 extra step? :slight_smile:

@SCarewe that doesn’t look like it should export. because there are two nodes per corner in the lower masters but only one in the top (the outside overlaps are removed on export and reduced to one node). It will report as compatible in the edit view but will not export as a variable font.
