Guidance on serif component terminals for lowercase c?

Hey there, I’m trying to add a terminal cap to a lowercase c - basically a simple ball at the end. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to configure a component to achieve that. Should I even go that route? Any help would be great. Thanks!

I would definitely recommend doing that manually, unless you intend to reuse that component in other glyphs as well.

That’s super, super helpful to know - thank you! The only other letter I could see the ball being using for is lowercase a. Good call - thanks so much once again!

can you send a screenshot of what it should look like? And what you tried?

Sure! It ain’t pretty.

Below is the screenshot of the component (node1 is on the same coordinates as origin)

And how it renders as a cap. Not great, but it’s at least somewhat lined up.

I moved the “node2” off the outline on purpose to show how to deviate from the original outline.


Ah, this makes a ton of sense. Thank you so much! Very, very appreciated!
