Bracket layer for aperture?


I would like to introduce a second shape (a kind of aperture) to only some of my glyphs like in the image attached. Because of the specific nature of my font (simulating a rotating movement) it has 9 masters (masters 1 and 9 are identical). What would be the best way to introduce this second shape? Can I use bracket layers? Thank you so much for your help! 31


You can keep the outline in all masters. Just put all nodes on one point (you can ignore the red warning indicator).

Thanks! Would reversing the path direction work too? 51

Reversing would work, too.
