I’m still a new Glyphs Mini user. I’ve noticed it does this for some points, and sometimes the BCP’s, when they are not on the grid, when you’re dragging things. But so far, I can’t tell exactly when and why it does this, to know when it’s consistently doing it. It happens for curved segments at least sometimes.
I have not yet figured out how to keep points (nodes) from snapping to the grid when you Rotate a path. – For example, say I want to create an asterisk by copying, pasting, and rotating a pair of shapes, so they rotate around a center point. The only time the nodes / points are going to stay on the grid is if it’s 90 degree increments; 45, 30, 60, 72, any angle other than Delta 90 degrees results in some points snapping to the grid in a way I don’t want. I haven’t yet found how to keep it from doing this, but there must be a way to turn the snap-to off for an operation. (It’s probably obvious and I’ve just not noticed yet.)
But when I have a shape drawn with its nodes and BCP’s as needed, with the snap-to-grid on, and if I drag the shape into place, or flip it horizontally or vertically, or if I want to rotate it, intuitively, I want my shape to stay unmodified. – Er, I have not yet found out how to do this, or if Glyphs Mini thinks this is what I want or what it thinks should happen.
While I like several things Glyphs Mini does, this particular behavior is bothersome. I need to finish reading the manual, and I need to look at videos again.
Thanks in advance for any feedback / help.
