What a team of type designers should know about FontLab and Glyphs relationship if both apps are used in the type production process?
Looking at the latest FL release notes seems that export-import of .glyphs files works just fine with a few limitations:
- FontLab 7.2 does not read or export custom parameters for instances (there is a suggested workaround to define instances again)
- When you export variable components to .glyphs, FontLab replaces them with components that point to the current layer. This is a known limitation. (because FL has the option for variable components to point to "other than the current" layer)
Is there anything else to consider and adjust the workflow accordingly. How about metrics, kerning, hinting, alignment zones, masters, interpolation, open type features, classes...does everything works smoothly?
