Italic Angle is lost from UFO, when UFO is opened in Glyphs3

What’s happening:

  • I’m making a UFO, starting from RoboFont, then manipulating a bit with FontParts, then opening in Glyphs
  • The UFO has set to -11.31. This displays in RoboFont with a slanted glyph drawing view/box.
  • But, if I open the UFO in Glyphs3, the Italic Angle is set back to 0 in the master settings.

My guess/hope is, this is a relatively simple bug, possibly caused by the UFO having a negative angle (matching the OpenType and UFO specs) versus Glyphs having a positive angle (matching the common user assumption for LTR language italics).

What version of Glyphs do you have? It should work in the latest cutting edge version. (And it can handle the opposite angle direction).

Awesome! And sorry, I should have mentioned the versions:

Glyphs 3.0.3 (3091)
macOS 10.15.7 (19H2)

Where can I download the cutting edge version?

From preferences you can activate latest cutting edge versions.Screen Shot 2021-11-24 at 18.55.44


Ah, of course. Thanks so much for the quick answers!

That did indeed solve the italic angle problem – thanks, Georg!
