Is it reasonable to use Glyphs as an all round vector editor?


Occasionally when producing svgs, I find that Illustrator simply lacks features that Glyphs has made me come to expect from a vector editing program. Could it be sensible to use Glyphs for this purpose? Should I make a new font and just open an arbitrary letter and edit from there? And are there ways to export a glyph to svg?


If I need to draw some shapes (not letters) I do it mostly in Glyphs.


I’m also using Glyphs for drawing most things then just copy&paste everywhere.
I wish there’d be a dedicated space in the app to do drawing for this purpose. Something that’s detached from the default Glyphs workflow.


For exporting to svg, should I copy the paths back to Illustrator and export from there?
