I may turn your world upside down here, Pablo... No offence, but this is not a good example People still use these old machines, and it’s for those we hint
...examinations must be done with real live fonts
Let’s say you make one word in bold or italic inside of a paragraph. You surely want that bold or italic to behave just like the regular and change x-height, stem widths etc at the same time so the whole paragraph is balanced. Is this possible to control when using TTFautohint?
Just taking a finished print design and running it through TTFA is not an ideal use of the technology. And yet you see this a lot - the Domine example discussed above is just one of many examples of making this kind of mistake.
The size of the type in the UPM matters a great deal. TTFA will give you better and worse results with a change as small as 1% in some cases
...and Turnip for screen in the RE version...
Have anyone of you guys who thinks the TTFautohint tool is great, actually hinted a font?
