Refreshing diacritics when adding a new master


#1

I am in the process of adding a new master (Hairline) to a font which already has three masters plus a number of interpolated weights. Is it possible to refresh the font view to reflect the updated glyphs?

I’m not sure I’m explaining this very well, so here’s an example.

I’ve created a new hairline master, stem width 20 and drawn the letter A. I’ve also created all of the diacritics for this weight. When I view it in the main font window, the only way I can find to display/generate the new combined characters is to delete the existing one (eg: Aacute) and use Add Glyph > Aacute to generate the new glyph.

Is there a quicker/easier way? Should I duplicate an existing master instead?
Thanks in advance.

If you are anchors, you could use the “Make component glyph” command (alt-shift-command-C).
You could also copy/paste the components from one master to another.

Thanks Fonthausen — alt-shift-command-C is exactly what I need. Thanks too for the quick response.
