i've always designed typefaces with fontlab software, actually fontlab VI.
Now i m working on a project in a group that use to design with Glyphs. The Fontlab macros that export files in Glyphs native format doesn't work anymore on FLVI. Can be .ufo file format a good way to export a single master in order to migrate to Glyphs? There are any other options to export in a font file readable in Glyphs without losing data?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can give me.
1_trying to export .designspace from FLVI and then open it with Glyph (latest version 1141): it doesn't save any name of the font but on the contrary doesn't gives errors on the opentype features code, at the end i can generate a .otf
2_trying to export .UFO from FLVI and the open it with Glyph: it seems to save everything but it gives me error with open type features, no way to produce an .otf.
in both cases it duplicates a lot of classes:
i cannot say anything about the outline it seems to be ok...
PS to open a simple .otf in glyph it doesn't save any classes
