Update posted May 24, 2012 at 4:32 pm by PabloImpallari for the Simplepolator project.
Simplepolator allows you to interpolate compatible glyphs in the same font, without leaving FontLab nor interrupting your workflow.
Simply select two compatible glyphs and run the macro:
Five new glyphs will be automatically created, allowing you to choose the best variation.
A quick video showing how to use it: https://vimeo.com/42785809
Note 1: The number in the zip filename is not related to the actual version of the source file. It's assigned by the system, so to keep filenames unique.
Note 2: The .otf files are for preview only, quickly generated using Ben Kiel's Font Genertor Macro. Please reffer to the source vfb files.
How to submit your suggestions:
- Feel free to edit any glyph you want, and mark it in color.
- Login and Post your modified source files (zipped) in the comments form below.

"In Glyphs, if you have drawn two versions of the same glyphs put one in the background and use the Filters > Transformation > Background to interpolate between the for and background layer. They have to be compatible, of cause."
