Is there a way to re-interpolate only the metrics in the Brace Layers? I mean if I already have a drawing and I change the metrics value in the Light and Bold masters am I able to update only the metrics in the intermediate master?
Using Re-Interpolate from the gear menu I need always copy and paste the drawing made before.
I think combination of copy & paste and reinterpolation gets the job done just fine. Having shortcut for everything will cause a messy UI, and a new feature should be (ideally) something you cannot do otherwise or requires much more steps to do.
Do you need this very often? Have you considered a script?
Thanks Tosche, using copy and paste is fine to me as well, my asking was just to make sure there is no different way to do that.
Hi Eric, no and copy and paste are working well.
This happened because in a new project I changed the moment I started using the brace layers so I’m having to update the metrics more often that I did it in others projects.
The script can be fine but as I don’t code the problem is write the script.
If you find another glyphs that has the same LSB or RSB, use a metrics key and Update Metrics in the brace layer.
Is there any Method I can call the “Re-interpolate” straight on brace layer?
Yes… sorry… in python a Method I can call that “re-interpolate” used on bace.
# Layer is the brace layer
exactly that… Thanks Georg.
Hi Georg, just another issue that I found working today.
“Update metrics” is not working properly in brace layers in the italic fonts.
@GeorgSeifert I believe you already aware about this bug, but glyphs with components in brace layers also have problems with “update metrics”, usually it goes to zero or -1.
