Component Naming

In the tutorial on Smart Components, the author wrote: “…Glyphs created with an underscore at the beginning will be set to non-exporting by default…”

That is not the behavior I’m getting when setting up a reusable component such as a serif. Named with a beginning underscore, it still exports to the OTF font as a glyph unless I manually set it to not export.

The automatic not export setting only applies if you use the “Generate Glyph” dialog. And there is no magic, it just removes the “export” checkmark.

‘Created with’. Not ‘renamed to’.
