Shifting view when point is selected

I understand it keeps the selected point in the same position while shifting everything else around. I’ve never found this to be useful, only annoying:

  • Not all my layers are compatible, and then the view shifts in an arbitrary way
  • I want my view to remain static to compare two masters, not jump around, I don’t know what kind of useful comparison this does.

If the layers are not compatible, it should not shift.

right, but going from light to black, for example, even when they are compatible shifts way too much…

Possible to make an option to turn off the view shifting? Now I have to unselect the point on both layers.

With the next update, you can do this:

Glyphs.boolDefaults["GSCenterSelectionOnMasterSwitch"] = False
