I’m designing an SVG single-stroke font for engraving/laser cutting, and so far everything is going great!
One weird hiccup is that in Illustrator, it sometimes leaves behind weird artifacts and cuts off the tops of the characters when moving the text object.
You can see it in action here:
Now I know this is probably an Illustrator bug, but it also seems to be caused by the characters being taller than Illustrator expects — you can see how the top row in that GIF is taller than the containing bounding box.
Is there a way, within Glyphs, to reduce the size of the characters so they’re the right height? I tried scaling them manually and changing the units per Em globally, but neither of those things worked.
