??match masters??

Hi all

I have to single master fonts, to combine into a multiple master.

As the the first time building a mm font, i'm still having some trouble understanding how do i check compatibility between the two masters i built, using the assign master operation... Can i expect that the outine nodes are linked in both masters after assigning the new master? Should i use the match masters action to check if their outlines are compatible?

I also checked the "convert hints to links" when defining the weight axis. Should i use manual interpolation when two outlines are incompatible?

Maybe it depends on the situation, but what would be the best (or most used) method to create the master font: using the blend feature, the mask to master action, or with the assign new master command?

Sorry for posting so many questions
Thanks in advance

This recent thread deals with some of your questions, but you may also google for "multiple master site:typophile.com". I am sure all of them have been discussed.
