replaceGlyph + Components


#1

Have just come across either something that needs to be documented, or a potential bug.
When using the renameGlyph attribute, to swap a lowercase a, when exporting .OTF files, all subsequent components (e.g. aacute agrave…) are also automatically swapped.

However, when exporting .TTF files, only the explicitly defined characters are swapped, and the others retain the original a's metrics.

I’m presuming this is due to how glyphs exports ttfs (with components not being merged etc), but couldn’t see any documentation about this specific use case.


#2

Which app version?


#3

Version 1141, but also just tried in 1195 and that seems to have resolved the issue!
