I wonder why components cannot be bound to anchors? I constantly use Align Selection command to position components, and every time I scale glyph with RMX Scaler or copy/paste components across Masters, components are off their positions. It would be quite easy, I suppose, to bound a component to an anchor to avoid this and speed up the work.
What do you think?
I use one smart component for serifs. And I use “width” parameter to adjust the width where it is necessary, like right serif of “r”,“f” etc. That’s why I don’t use corner components.
When a shape is shared among glyphs, like right leg of “n”, I use connect anchors, but for serifs it doesn’t work.
Now I am updating old files made in Glyphs 1 and I am replacing components with smart components, and getting rid of components that are no longer needed since smart components have been introduced. This is real pain. I have to adjust positions of every single component. Bounding it to a node would resolve this problem.
