About Curves in glyphs


Is there any recommandation in the best way to design curved glyphs.

I’ve created some glyphs in FontSelf and save it as a OTF font.
I need to use it in a software which use only TTF font.
Anyway I convert it with some tool to get the TTF one.

But when I try to vectorize back this TTF some modification happened on the font.

I was starting with a circle (with 4 90° arcs) and I get 16 after conversion…
is it possible to prevent that?

Unfortunately, no. TTF is really limited in correct bezier curves. Basically, for the user there will be no difference - but TTF will always have more nodes.
