The RoboFont tab contains RoboFont-specific settings.
The Generate section contains settings used by RoboFont when generating fonts.
|Decompose||Decompose all components when generating a font.|
|Remove Overlap||Remove overlaps in all glyphs when generating a font.|
|Auto Hint||Auto-hint the font with the Adobe FDK autohinter (PostScript fonts) or ttfautohint (TrueType fonts, only if it’s installed in the system) using data from the PostScript hinting info.|
|Release Mode||Set the Adobe FDK in release mode when generating the font. This will turn on subroutinization (makes final OTF file smaller), applies your desired glyph order, and removes the word Development from the font’s version string.|
|Format||Default output format when generating a font:
|Italic Slant Offset||Shift all glyphs horizontally to the left when generating fonts. The number must have a negative value. This is used mainly when drawing italics with slanted metrics.|
|Spline Conversion||When changing between Cubic (PostScript) and Quadratic (TrueType) curves, the conversion can either preserve the number of points or preserve the curves (adding points when necessary).|
|Add Dummy DSIG table||Add a dummy digital signature table while generating a binary font file.|
|Features with FontTools||Generate features with FontTools. This can be helpful with kerning overflow issues.|
|Omit Mac Names||
Omit the Mac Names from the build, as suggested by the OpenType spec.
A space separated list of glyph names representing glyphs that should not be included in the generated fonts. See the UFO3 specification.
