Hi, I get the following error when I generate a color font with RoboChrome:
_export_to_font /Users/martin/Documents/Colorfont/Untitled.otf Exporting to /Users/martin/Documents/Colorfont/Untitled.otf Exporting SVG format with palette 0 ... Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Applications/RoboFont.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python3.7/vanilla/dialogs.py", line 118, in completionHandler_ self._resultCallback(self._result) File "RoboChrome.py", line 191, in _export_to_font File "/Users/martin/Library/Application Support/RoboFontPy3/plugins/RoboChrome.roboFontExt/lib/colorfont/__init__.py", line 365, in export_to_otf self._export_svg(otfpath, palette_index, parent_window) File "/Users/martin/Library/Application Support/RoboFontPy3/plugins/RoboChrome.roboFontExt/lib/colorfont/__init__.py", line 426, in _export_svg font = TTFont(otfpath) File "/Applications/RoboFont.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python3.7/fontTools/ttLib/ttFont.py", line 122, in __init__ file = open(file, "rb") FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Users/martin/Documents/supertype/Colorfont/Untitled.otf'
I get this with a UFO that I put together myself as well as the supplied example file CircleOfColor.ufo from @jens from here https://github.com/jenskutilek/RoboChrome
(I’m never quite sure if I should post issues like this here or if I should head straight to GitHub.)
you need to generate a binary first yourself, see the docs of RoboChrome
Generate your font via RoboFont as usual. For the sbix format you need to generate a TTF, it won’t work with OTFs.
If you click the Export to font button now, RoboChrome will know where to look for the TTF you just generated, and will save a copy with a _sbix suffix.
hope this helps!
