Alignment indicator line only appears on one computer

Hello friends,

See the link for a short video that demonstrates a line that appears when a node is moved into alignment with a near neighbor. This has been a really helpful feature for me, but it only works when I’m working on my laptop (2013 Macbook Pro). When I’m using the same version of Glyphs on my 2018 iMac, it doesn’t work or appear.

I haven’t been able to find the setting or whatever it is that causes the this to appear on my laptop. I’d like it to work on my iMac too—any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Could be a plug-in intervening. Do you have Snap Killer installed?

Nope, I don’t have any plugins installed. Any other ideas?

@mekkablue @GeorgSeifert Do you guys have any ideas for how I could get this to work on my iMac? Not even sure what exactly this feature would be called but it’s really helpful. I just don’t know why it would be working on one computer but not the other.

I suspect a setting or third-party tool intervening.

  • Can you set up a new user on your machine and try there? If it works, there, we know it is a setting in your user.
  • Double check your Accessibility settings in System Preferences.
  • Which device are you using for input?
  • Any assistive tools or additional drivers for managing mouse/trackpad/tablet input installed?
