I've toyed with multiple masters in FontLab and quickly realized there's got to be a better way.
Any more direct comments comparing what Glyphs does with multiple masters vs. Superpolator?
glyphs is well suited for kerning using the method of flipping through a series of strings and kerning as you go
How do you flip through strings?
easily copying metrics settings from one font or weight to another.
a "replace" option for a copied segment.
looks like I might have to make compatible masters for every glyph just to be able to generate font files.
batch suffix addition/replacement.
marking selected glyphs with a color.
being able to type multiple "variable" character
Not very well documented, though.
Glyphs allows you to have an arbitrary number of masters (which are called layers there)
Does Glyphs differentiate between layers that are masters and layers that are used for reference or scraps?
Did you see the manual?
- batch suffix addition/replacement.Select some glyphs and Edit > Find > Search and Replace. To add a suffix, leave the Find field empty.- better, more extensive printing optionsI asked about that and did not get much feedback. There are some options in Glyphs but usually I use Indesign to print my samples. This gives me much more control and if you always export in the indesign fonts folder, it is always up to date. If you have any specific suggestion, feel free to send me a sketch.
