In Glyphs 2, when adjusting the hangul width value with the info box, only RSB was affected, but in Glyphs 3, when adjusting the hangul width value with the info box, both LSB and RSB are affected.
This makes the hangul design inconvenient.
Can’t I make it affect only RSB when I adjust the width value of the info box like Glyphs 2?
In hangul, letters using vowels of ‘ㅗ’, ‘ㅜ’, and ‘ㅡ’ have the same side bearings on both sides, but ‘ㅏ’, ‘ㅐ’, and ‘ㅣ’ have different side bearings.
When the shape of a vowel changes, such as ‘ㅏ’, ‘ㅐ’, and ‘ㅣ’, the width is designed differently. For example, if you make a ‘맴’ after making a ‘밈’, the stem of the vowel increases to two, so the RSB increases. At this time, since ‘ㅐ’ adjusts all the series used at the same time, you need to adjust the width of not only ‘맴’ but also ‘맥’, ‘맨’, ‘맫’… all at once.
Previously, adjusting the width with the info box increased the RSB, making it easier to work with.
Since the RSB value of each character varies depending on the Korean ending, the RSB cannot be adjusted collectively in the information field.
When adjusting the width of a metric using the infobox, is there a way to choose whether it affects only the RSB or both?
Centering is useful for letters that have the same side bearings on both sides, such as ‘몸’, ‘뭄’, and ‘믐’, which use the vowels ‘ㅗ’, ‘ㅜ’, and ‘ㅡ’ in hangul. However, these letters are 2660 of the total 11172 hangul, which is about 20% of the total.
As you said, it would be nice if you change Hangul so that it works like Glyphs 2.
