It may also remove overlap as part of this process.
I trust a system that knows about variable fonts and can instantiate them for download to a printer to remove the overlaps more than I trust the printer to correctly interpret overlaps.

I think this might be the right place to ask if an idea like this is doable? I've been asking around for advice or suggestions (i'm not a programmer) on how something like this might be achievable. I'd hope that this would be very easy for a typographer or designer to use.Ideally, a designer could adjust the tracking and the leading and the overlaps would happen through booleanOperations (?) Also, ideally the color of each letter could be changed and the white shapes would be transparent, ie: not filled with white to achieve the overlap. (i'd like for this to not be a layer font)i am able to get a very basic, but very time-consuming version of this to work, but the two limitations i'm running across are:1. i'm substituting a whole letter for two halves, then replacing the right half of the letter, with a combination of that half of the letter and the left half of the next letter (kind of like a ligature) - which means there is no tracking available and when i go to color one of the letters, i end up coloring the two halves.2. i have no idea how to get the overlaps to happen on the leading.thank you in advance,
