I use FontLab Studio, but if there are ways to do what I'm asking in Glyphs, I'd make the switch.
I know how to write OpenType features by hand, based on the naming-conventions of my glyphs and classes. And I've tried to expedite this lengthy process by copying features from another font, or loading them from a
.fea files. But this only works if the name and number of the glyphs are the same, and even then the
.otf file usually fails to export. I know there are such things as "Macros" in FontLab but I haven't used them before for lack of understanding.
So, is there a way to automate creation of OpenType features based on glyph and/or class names? Or to expedite this process with Macros or something else?
