Height of automatically generated symbols

Was happy to see in the blog post
That I could automate production of math symbols etc.

Unfortunately I’m using oldstyle figs as default in the font, so when AFDKO looks at my zero to synthesize the symbols, it ends up making =, >, < etc. very low (sitting on the baseline, rather than centered in the ascender height).

There’s no clever way around this, is there?

You could put the lining zero back in place, generate the font, open the generated font, steal the lazy symbols out of the generated OTF and put them in the original file. Then you don’t need the parameter anymore. Kind of defeats the purpose, but the result is the same.

Yeah, that’s what I came up with too. Thanks.
