    Can I create a font object from Robofont but not get it opened? I mean write to it from the script but not have the font window open. I’m dealing with huge fonts and performance is now very important. I can do it outside Robofont, but in RF I have an easy access to vanilla for dialogs.
    Thanks.

    font = OpenFont("path/to/your/font.ufo", showUI=False)
    

    see http://doc.robofont.com/api/robofab-extras/

    Thanks for the tip, Frederik.
    That made everything smooth, as doing it outside RF, same performance, better access to dialogs : )
    BTW, Is there any chance to get the RoboFont documentation for reading offline?

    I tried several word press plugins but none of them are satisfying.
    If I offer a pdf for download I would like that the download is in sync with the current documentation.

    Ok, we’ll wait then. Other formats, as html itself would work too in the meantime.
    Thanks!

    I bundled all documentation on a single html page.
