Up until yesterday, I kept my
AE as a component + path glyph, thus not autoaligned, but today I wanted to try if it could be made out of two components. I set an anchor named
custom in E and one named
_custom in a new glyph called
_part.AE. So far, so good.
When I get back to
AE and auto align, though, the LSB snaps to E’s one and returns a negative value. If I try to invert the components’ order and the anchors’ names, it gives me the same problem, although this time by the
_part.AE side, that is
AE's RSB. Any workaround for this impasse?
Thanks in advance!
What is in the
_part. prefix is only needed for smart components. In your case I’d call it AE.part.
About the auto alignment. Did you check the component order?
_part.AE contains the paths of
A I added to
E in order to make the
AE shape. (I’ll now rename it, thanks for the hint on smart components)
Regarding the auto alignment, I did check the component order: if the
AE.part is first, the RSB of
AE returns a negative value and if the
E is first, the LSB does.
#exit in the A part, and
#entry in the E part. For more info, see this tutorial:
Missed that part of the tutorial, thanks so much Rainer!
