Ways to reduce file size


Hi - is there ways to reduce OTF file size on a heavy node font without deleting nodes?



Converting everything to straight paths by using @mekkablue’s Retract BCP script found on his GitHub here: https://github.com/mekkablue/Glyphs-Scripts/tree/master/Paths might help with performance, though I believe file size is linked to number of nodes.


Retract BCPs is also available as a filter, so you can add it as custom parameter to the instance.

Plus, Delete Small Paths. There seem to be many paths smaller than 100 square units. You can safely get rid of them without significantly changing the appearance.
