Hide vertical metrics based on the current script


I think I cannot be alone with this request. I wish there was an opportunity to hide the default (Latin) vertical metrics when working on other scripts. A simple way to access them vie code would be enough for me wich I can add in a reporter plugin. Those Metrics and Alignment Zones from other scripts are really annoying once you work with multiple script fonts. Especially if the metrics are only slightly different.


I’m thinking about that already. Have a bit patience.


I’ll have all the patience of the world. Just needed to know if there will be any progress :slight_smile:
The custom zones plugin is ready to be distributed, and I don’t want to bother the users with too many updates right at the start.


For a quick solution you can disable metrics, and display your own with a simple reporter.


Ah, you mean the built-in hide/show metrics? okay, that might help so far. I’ll redraw the other metrics then. Thanks for the tip!


Yes, View > Show Metrics or Cmd-Shift-M.


Works for the moment, thanks!
