Request: Preview Italic Angle while Drawing Straight Lines

Hi Glyphs Team!

I was just wondering if there was a possible way of previewing the Italic Angle, but drawing straight lines to make editing slanted angles easier. This would save a lot of time creating italics or even cursive fonts as you would get a preview of the angle as you design the each glyph.

I have seen this achieved in Fontlab Studio as it is an OpenType feature as demonstrated in this video here:

Is there a way to do this in Glyphs? If not, could we have this as a feature in the near future?

Thank you for your time :slight_smile:

You can do this by applying a custom parameter to instances:

Filter > Transformations;Slant:10;Origin:2;

There seems to be a problem though with the component glyphs since the slant is applied two times (see the image below).
