Glyphs 3 fi fl composites

in G2, I was able to create fi fl with Glyph > Make Component glyph, and it would position them just as they would be if you typed out fi or fl.

In G3, the letters overlap like so:

Obviously I could disable auto alignment and manually position them, but the way it worked before was so simple and easy!


Related follow-up: using Glyph > Create composite to make accented letters is not working properly either.

The letter has a “top” anchor:

as does the circumflexcomb mark:

both were generated with “Set Anchors” (command U).

But the “create composite” result ignores the anchors:

Furthermore, I can grab the circumflex and move it around, which wasn’t the case in G2 (without disabling alignment).

Do I have a setting wrong, or am I missing something?


Can you check the “Disable Alignment” setting in Font Info > Other?

It was checked. Unchecked it, and all is right with the world.

Quickest fix ever. thanks.
