Shortcuts for adjusting sidebears and kerning become unresponsive


#1

relatively regularly the shortcuts for adjusting sidebears and kerning get unresponsive while switching through tools
not sure what steps exactly to reproduce


#2

The shortcuts are only available in the Text tool. Does it help to double click the currently active layer again?


#3

yea ofcourse it only available in text tool.
im saying when switching tools and returning to text the keys remain unresponsive


#4

I have experienced it too, and could never reliably reproduce it. Workaround: so far, switching away from, and back to Glyphs always helped.


#5

Speaking of which, sample text window shortcut is not always reliable either.


#6

I have the same problem. From time to time, shortcuts for metrics & kerning stop working. I cannot reproduce, it is quite random but at the same time quite frequent. Especially if I work with placeholders and navigate through glyphs using Fn+Arrows.


#7

Ahaaaa, that rings a bell: same thing here. If @Tosche works with placeholders a lot too, we might be on to something.


#8

Not at all, sorry. Mine is about sample text, and not about kerning shortcuts. I for one never had that problem.
