I have generated numerous text files over the years that I use for kerning samples but the default measure that they show up in on Glyphs is not what I want. Is there a setting where I can change this so I can control breaks? Scaling does not change the measure.
Yes, go to Preferences (
Command-comma), then select the User Settings gear icon tab, and change the Text View Width.
Details about that setting are in the Glyphs 2.3 Handbook in sections 2.1.2 User Settings and 3.8 Entering Text.
