I have a stylistic variant of a glyph that I want to have the same kerning values as the original across all masters. But after assigning a group to the original glyph, all the locks are opened, even though the glyph is the only one in the group. I feel like this is making things more complicated than they have to be.
How can I prevent this from happening?
Is there a way to close locks for a current glyph via a script?
Setting up the groups before starting to kern is not an option in this project.
