I’m currently working on a flared serif typeface and have been experimenting with different methods of drawing terminals and finials. I’m trying to keep things as consistent as I can and the best way I seem to have found of doing that so far is by using Cap Components. The only problem is I keep running into inconsistencies when it comes to mirroring.
As shown in the video below, I can mirror a Cap Component added to the letter a, but can’t mirror a Cap Component added to the letter e without causing the original paths to distort.

If anybody can help with this or perhaps advise on a better approach to drawing consistent terminals and finials, it would be hugely appreciated!
