Automatic vertical alignment of small caps

Hello, I am running into the following issue: When using rotated/flipped components in small caps, they are aligned with the x-height. is there some way of aligning them with the small cap height?

Set the small cap height as x-height, not as body height.

I tried setting a Scope with “Case is Smallcaps”, but that didn’t change anything.

Perfect, that works. I was scared of adding a second x-height metric because I recall there being some horrible shifts in the italic sidebearings.

that indeed has a slight influence on the side bearings. You can counter that with a manually set slant height (use halve the x-height as a value).
