I try to keep it short I searched on the internet in several typography forums but still couldn’t find an answer to my question… I’m still developing further my first font.
The question: Are overlapping shapes a general problem?
My dev process:
Creating paths in Illustrator with the Width Tool and then converted it to shapes:
Copy the shapes in Ai and pasting in my Font Software (BirdFont):
I used the exported the OTF files in Illustrator / InDesign & Co. Then I printed it on my Canon Office printer and got a big surprise:
So is this something that happens often? Should I have merged all the shapes with pathfinder before? In order to make the font 100% safe?
Thanks for your answers in advance!
