Starting a New Project
The first page you get when you open Glyphr Studio is the Open Projects page. On the right
hand side of the page there are three tabs that help you start or load a project. You can
drag and drop an existing file on the Open Projects page at any time to load it.
Start a new Glyphr Project - this will create a blank project with default settings.
You can input a name here if you want, but you can change it at any time from the
Font Settings Page.
Drag and drop to load a file - this allows you to load a pre-existing file. You can
either drag and drop your file anywhere to load it, or select 'Browse for a File' to use a
file chooser dialog.
Glyphr Studio can read a few different file types: Fonts (.otf or .ttf), Glyphr Studio Project
Files (.txt) or SVG Fonts (.svg). Please read
the File Formats article for more details on these file types.
Please note, a SVG Font is a specific format of a SVG File. SVG Fonts have a certain structure
that Glyphr Studio can import. Generic SVG Files cannot be loaded from the Open Projects page!
If you have SVG outlines you want to use, create a new project and import your individual SVG
outlines via the Import SVG Page.
Load an Example Project - There are two example Glyphr Studio Projects that you can play with.
Merriweather Sans is a nice libre font that was imported from an Open Type file. Modegg is a font
created with Glyphr Studio to show off some Glyphr Studio Project features. It heavily utilizes
features like Components and Class-based Kerning.
