SOLVED Workflows for not generating certain glyphs
ryan last edited by ryan
Curious about others’ workflows for making certain glyphs not generate but remain in the UFO, apart from writing a custom generation script for each family?
Some use cases:
Glyph is component that you don't want in final character set.
Glyph is alternate that is subbed out via .designspace rule. (Is setting a subbed-out glyph as non-generating a feature of .designspace spec?)

There is also the
makeotf, which makes the compiler only export the glyphs in GlyphOrderAndAliasDB file. You can checkout

there’s a new standard lib key named
public.skipExportGlyphsin the UFO3 specification which is meant to handle this – see the discussion here. I think
fontMakesupport it, but
(I like to use custom generation scripts for each family, it’s an old habit. it just works :)
maybe @arrowtype’s VarFont Prep can help?
curious to hear about other people’s workflows too…
