With a font that has two masters, one for contrast and one for no contrast, I find myself constantly updating sidebearings twice, since both masters (of each weight) will almost always have the same sidebearings.
Is there a way to link the sidebearing to another layer / master of the same glyph?
If not, would this be a viable feature for implementation? Sidebearings could use a special notation to reference the master or layer, like
=#Regular-20 etc.) to link to the metric of this glyph’s Regular layer. The same feature would also be viable to link bracket layers or smart component layers that you now also have to manually go tweaking.
