Iconfont - Change vertical glyph placement

Hello there,

currently working on an iconfont (update). For some (legacy) reasons people want to work with this in Microsoft Word. So the icons should harmonize with text which has the same font-size.

Now i placed the icons in my font, setup all metrics etc. and exported it. Now in Word I have the problem that the icons placed in vertical orientation a little to high, so it doesn’t really fit to the baseline of another fonts. Tools like InDesign etc. you can correct all this but in Word its difficult.

So my question is: Can I improve the vertical placing in Glyphs 3 without changing 500 icons manually? I placed the icons with placing squares to keep the original .svg size.

Thank you very much!

You can use Path > Transform to move them all at once.
