Slow performance on generating



  • With rather up-to-date hardware (1,7 GHz intel MacBook Air, SSD drive)

    The FDK performs weak when generating. It's even worse when you want to autohint, remove overlap, etc.



  • Hello, how can I use FDK inside robofont? Do I need to install ufo2fdk?



  • ufo2fdk is embedded and by default using the embedded FDK, you can disable the use of of the internal FDK in the preferences.

    The file menu option "Generate" or through scripting font.generate(...) is using FDK to build the binaries. It's up to you if you want to use the embedded FDK or a custom installed version on your local HD.
