It would be very convenient, if “Component from Selection” could include selected anchors, too.
Why would you have anchors next to outlines?
What do you mean? I often have cases where I have a glyph drawn as paths, with multiple (custom) anchors, and I want to rebuild it as a composite. Currently, I need to make the paths into components, and then copy over the anchors manually, making sure that I paste them at the same coordinates. This is very strenuous.
Sorry, I didn’t meant to question the question but wanted more information. e.g. I thought that those anchors might be used to aligne the new component.
I see. Personally, I don’t have the anchors to align the (to-be) components in the layer yet, I add those later. But I often have anchors for aligning other components, because the layer might be used elsewhere already. I hope that makes sense.
Makes sense. I’ll see what I can do.
As fare as I can see, the anchors should be handled already.
is this new to 3.2?
In 3.1.2 (3151) the anchors are ignored
Don’t know, if I have understood correctly, so here is , what I do:
Most of the time, I want to make a part of a letter to be a component and if it contains anchors for marks, they should go to the newly created component.
Yes, this is new in 3.2.
You have a bit more control in the Move Paths to New Glyph script.
