IBM Plex Sans Var 1.0

Using pre-compiled ttf fonts

Pre-compiled binaries are supplied in the fonts folder.

The pre-compiled ttf fonts contain several enhancements that are not included when compiling source files yourself:

  • Variable TrueType hint instructions for better rendering on Windows;
  • Alternate forms for glyphs naira, won and fraction that are automatically shown when using particular widths;
  • A stat table containing names of all instances that is used to show these instances in font menus;
  • A meta table.

Building fonts from source

UFO source files are supplied in the sources folder.

Requirements

To build binary font files from the supplied UFO sources you need fontmake. Fonts in this release have been generated with fontmake 1.9.1.

Building

Run build.sh from the command line. This will compile both IBMPlexSansVar-Roman.ttf and IBMPlexSansVar-Italic.ttf in a new folder called variable_ttf.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
