I’ve got some questions concerning masters and instances. I have a three masters file (Thin, Reg, Bold) and would like to interpolate Light + Extra Light and Medium + Semibold.
Everything works fine, but I would like to edit some letters of the generated instances. Is there a way to edit the instances before they are exported? Otherwise I have to edit the final .otf file, where all components are lost. I have to edit the letters hand by hand… I would expect something like working with a raw-photo-file in Photoshop. I can make changes on the photo, but can always return back to the original photo (or interpolation) by just one click. Maybe it’s a feature request?
Or are my masters not designed perfectly? Are the instances supposed to look perfect, if the masters are done right? Or is there another workflow I don’t know?
Another question: Is there a possibility to insert more than one value to the “Vertical Stem” and “Horizontal Stem” field in the masters? Like in the Vertical Stem window: H=60;O=62 and then in the Horizontal Stem window H=56;O=58; and so on? Like the information of the "HO no t "in the “Maße” (measures in english?) window.
It’s my first font, I am still learning… I am working with Glyphs Version 2.3b (854).
Thanks a lot in advance.
