I was wondering how reliable fonts exported directly from a font editor are (assuming that you have filled all font naming, vertical dimensions, blue values, and stemsnap values correctly)? I'm thinking Robofont or Glyphs App, mostly. In this case, the fonts will be auto-hinted and the feature set it simple. Are they ready to sell or at what point do I need a font engineer?
Most foundries I know have their own ways to compile and produce final OTFs, which usually reply on scripts and the Terminal. I suppose mostly it’s for easier/quicker batch-processing and possibly tinkering with the makeotf options. Can someone explain to me (or point me in the right direction) to read more about this topic? Thank you
