Variable font with uneven number of masters possible?

I have a font with 5 Masters

It has a weight axis and an optical axes with 2 masters each.

But the thinnest master is the same for both optical weights.

This works great with standard weithts:

Regular optical 1 88 -0
Bold optical 1 180-0

Regular optical 2 88-100
Bold optical 2 180-100

Thin optical 1 30-0
Thin optical 2 30-22

Is it possible to make this work with the variable export. And how?

So, Thin Optical 1 and 2 are the same?

Right now, you would still need to duplicate the master. You can autoupdate with some scripting perhaps.

In case you need a script that automatically adds your required master before export, write a message here :slightly_smiling_face:

That would be really wonderful :slight_smile:

Would you be able to detail your setup a bit more? I can either write a UI script for you to choose a master each time (more flexible and useful in the future), or a script that works specifically and only for your project (a lot faster to write). Here, or DM :slightly_smiling_face:

Oh, I thought you have one in the quiver.

Anyway, I have scripted it already. Much easier than expected. even for a rookie…

Thanks for the offer!
