Components shifting without (known) cause


repeatedly encountering the issue that already perfectly positioned components (e g in colon, guillemets, ellipsis, approxequal, etc) seem to shift while I am not watching.


(Using latest version / 2.5.2 (1181))

Can you reproduce it?

I would not know how other than hoping it happens again ā€“ I will observe it.

I think I have the same bug as you. Apparently randomly some components move. It seems to happen after I generate some component glyphs (NOT than the ones that shift), but Iā€™m not sure, since it happened in glyphs which were off-screen for a while.

Take a look at the result:

Oddly, this does not happen in all masters

That is a very good description of what I observed.
Example: Perfectly positioned ā€˜=ā€™ on one day. Next day it looks like ā€˜ā€“ā€“ā€™.
