I want to copy metrics from one *.ufo (not generated by Glyphs App) into one of the masters of my *.glyphs file. My idea is to use the “steal side bearing” script by @mekkablue. However, once I open the *.ufo file, the metrics are being shifted rightwards so that the side bearings I’m about to copy are wrong. The problem only occurs when opening Italic *.ufo files saved previously in Robofont.
Those are the different SB which Robofont and Glyphs provide me with when opening the same Italic *.ufo file.
Robofont: 41 n 156
When opened in Glyphs: 103 n 93
My Glyphs Settings:
– *.glyphs project: Automatic Alignment Turned ON
– Automatic Alignment Disabled for imported fonts
Italic angle is 14° for both files. To be more precise: in Robofont it is declared as “-14°”, in Glyphs as “14°”.
Many thanks for any help!
