I’d like to create a divide glyph (÷) from a minus and two periods.
And I’d like to use anchors to position periods.
So I put two anchors into a minus with names “top” “bottom” and corresponding anchors into a period ("_top" , “_bottom”) but when I move anchors in minus only one period responds in divide glyph. I assume that cannot be done that way.
Or there is a hack?
In the minus, you need two anchors, e.g. top_1 and top_2. Then you can switch your periods with the anchor symbol in the grey info panel. Hope this helps.
thanks for a tip.
But it doesn’t work with two instances of a same component on the stage. The second added just do not respond to reposition of an anchor. If I only remove the first added - the second starts acting as it should.
Workaround: try it without anchors and position them freely.
Problem is, that the algorithm is intended for letters and marks (accents). I will have a look if I can find a more general and robust solution.
@mekkablue: the point was to use anchors.
Thank You, guys.
- add 1st component - it is positioned ok
- add 2nd component-it goes anywhere
- cut 1st - the 2nd is positioned
- paste 1st - it is pasted in place.
I have to repeat 3rd and 4th step every time anchors are repositioned.
