Not possible to change side-bearing

Hi there,
I appear not to be able to change the side bearing with reference values with legal characters.


Version: Glyphs 3.2 (3179)/MacOS Ventura 13.2

Steps to reconstruct:

  1. Open a glyph with already set reference side bearing.
  2. Change the value.

Expected behaviour:
Value is changed after entering.

Actual behaviour:
Value can’t be changed with a warning pop-up that the input uses illegal characters.

Could you send me that file?

You have to use = before, for glyphs that start with _. I had the same issue yesterday.

thanks, this solved it!

before it did work without the = equal sign if there was no calculation

I fixed it that it works with glyphs that start with an underscore.
