Anchor placement in custom Glyph Data

Hi! I tried making my custom Glyph Data, and I was wondering if there is a way to specify the anchor placements from this file that will be recognized when using Set anchors / cmd+U?

Right now all anchors generated just go to the bottom left-hand side of the glyph (even the “top” anchor)

That depends on the case and the metrics you defined. You need a height that can carry a top anchor.

What are the category/subCategory of that glyph?

Ah, should it have been a known Category/subCategory from the list? I labelled it Baybayin/Base respectively. Or can I perhaps add metrics with the same label?

The “Baybayin” should go into the script field (probably in lowercase like all other scripts). The category needs to be “Letter”. Have a look at other scripts like Kawi for reference.

Ok will edit it! Will doing this place the anchors in the proper positions?

It should.
