    Is there a way of removing the (ps) hinting from an ufo file from robofont?
    Thanks!

    Im not sure what you mean by hinting inside a ufo file?

    there is some hinting data stored in the font.lib and glyph.lib by vfb2ufo

    RoboFont doesnt show postscript hints and is not using that data to compile a binary…

    I exactly meant that, I want to remove the hinting data stored by vfb2ufo. I had some error when generating the fonts outside RoboFont. I’ve to check with Robofab lib (Nonelab).

    you can remove those lib keys from the glyph lib:

    com.fontlab.v2.tth
    com.fontlab.ttprogram
    

    be careful, the data will be lost. Converting the ufo back to vfb will not be able to restore the removed hinting data.

    You can show and delete “hidden” data from an UFO with my RoboFont extension “UFO Cleaner”: https://github.com/jenskutilek/RoboFont/tree/master/Extensions
