Measurement line values



Apologies if this has been discussed - Is there a way for the value of the measurement line to match the value of the sidebearings? Presently they are different and while working on serif designs I find myself constantly inserting and re-inserting values to get the measurement line where I need it.

For reference if this sounds confusing, and it surely might given my description, the measurement line of RoboFont and FL works as I’ve described.


We are thinking about it.
Thank you for your input.
