Auto correct the Glyph Alignment

Is there a way that left and right spacing change caused by dependent glyphs can be auto-corrected? Every time I adjust The space eg; for ‘H’, all dependent glyphs that have ‘H’ spacing, show errors that I have to correct manually by refreshing in each glyph. Is there any other shortcut method from menu?


  1. Switch to Font View (Cmd-Opt-1)
  2. Edit > Select All (Cmd-A)
  3. Glyph > Update Metrics (Ctrl-Cmd-M), additionally hold down Opt for all masters at once

Hi, there is a plugin that does exactly what you are seeking. Search for Sync Metrics Keys in the Plugin Manager. I personally find it annoying sometimes, as it will instantly update your metrics when editing, but see for yourself. It is, for the most part, very practical and exactly what you are looking for. Hope that helps!

This plugin will break undo.
