I like the way I can align a component and any point, but editing is a terrible experience. When a top right corner is on 0,0 and all paths are on the left, they overlay preceding glyph and I have to type space. When I sometimes miss a point when selecting, I enter editing mode of another glyph.
I don’t know if it can be improved somehow… Maybe an additional reference point that could be used instead of an origin 0,0 ?
Ainvertedbreve made up of two components: A and breveinvertedcomp.case. top anchor is set on A.
breveinvertedcomb.case is made up of the component breve.case but flipped on the horizontal. _top anchor is set on breve.case.
In Glyphs 1.3.19 (452) beta 12, in the Font View, Ainvertedbreve looks like an A with the breve shifted down (overlapping the A). When in Edit View, it sometimes shows the correct inverted breve above the A and then sometimes as a breve overlapping the A. When zooming in/out (using the pinch/expand gesture on the trackpad or with Zoom menu or keys), it also flips between the two versions while briefly showing the filled outline version to the right side.
The Preview area seems to flip between the inverted breve above and the breve below (back and forth).
Understood. In 1.3.17, Glyphs seemed to use the _top anchor from the breve.case component since the internal display and the resultant .otf all seemed to show the inverted breve at the appropriate position. I was assuming that the anchors were being inherited from the component if not set in the glyph. I'll set specific anchors, now.
