Connecting two components with anchors?

Hi,

Components are awesome! With that said, here goes my question:

I am trying to connect two components together with anchors. I don’t need to connect a component with a non-component path, two components. And I don’t seem to be able to do it.

In the example above I am reusing an arch both in the ‘a’ and the ‘n’ (using smart components). But I want the termination of the ‘a’ to have that little curvy leg component whereas the n should end with the straight component leg. How can I do this?

Thanks a lot!

The alignment of components does only work if there are no paths in the glyph. And if there are sufficient anchors. You can try to put them in an extra glyph then only contains the arch and the foot and then add this as a component to the a and n,

It works! Thanks :smile:
