If a glyph is built from two components that each have anchors I cannot adjust the postions of the components within that glyph. The manual does not mention this. Is this behavior a bug or a feature?
I create dcaron and lcaron using d+caroncomb.alt and l+caroncomb.alt, with no anchors in caroncomb.alt. When I try to do this using only components I cannot change the right sidebearing to anything other than the sidebearing of the base glyph (in this case, d or l). I input a value, press enter, and nothing happens. If I add some other path to the components I can change the sidebearing, but if I delete that path the sidebearing snaps back to the value of the base glyph. Is this a bug or a feature? If glyphs is intended to work this way, should I just not use a component for the caron in dcaron and lcaron?
Glyph build from components are automatically fixed. To disable this behavior, add one node to the glyph. This single node will not be exported and can be ignored. I’m working on a better solution for this.
