I've just recently started using FontLab Studio 5.
I know I'm being lazy, but is there any quick way or shortcuts for creating different weights for an entire font family.
I tend to design most of my fonts in Illustrator CS, but find the 'stroke' function doesn't quite work for the different weights.
I'm sure the only solution is hard work, but I was just wondering if anyone had any good techniques for solving this problem?
I have even tried designing an ultra thin font, and then the ultra fat, then morphing the rest using the 'Blend Tool' and a specific number of steps.
This seems to be the quickest method so far, although it can produce some very unexpected results if the number of points don't match.
