While unusual, there are typefaces in which the advance width decreases as the weight increases. Yanone Kaffeesatz is one example. In uniwidth typefaces like my own FF Hertz, the advance width doesn’t increase at all.Belleve Invis said:@Peter Constable
Should axes name carry more semantics? For example, `wght` axis should cause all the glyphs' advance width monotonically increasing along the `wght` value.
I have seen some pretty complex Glyphs and VFB source files, so I tend to disagree on that. For example, with FF Real all 26 styles of the initial upright release came from one Glyphs file with various glyph replacements and tracking applied via custom parameters.Dave Crossland said:
I can't speak for the authors of the OFL, but it seems to me that if a user obtains a font binary under the OFL, they can pretty easily load it into their font editor and carry on.
