Recently I done a LOT of Italics (phew) and figured out that side bearings without a metrics key is almost always the same on Roman and Italic. Therefor I propose a function to sync the side bearing on Italic Masters. This would speed up the process and be very helpful. Maybe something like a checkbox somewhere so it’s optional? Cheers!
Are the upright and italic masters in the same file?
That came up before. There is one option but that is probably to rigid: add a “Link Metrics With Master” parameter to the italic master. But that syncs the width, not the sidebearing.
Other then that, it probably better to use a script (Rainer most likely has one
Suggestion: Maybe we could have a master referral (#) in the metrics keys? By number or name. The same way we can use @ for position referral.
Also sometimes useful for other variations, not only italics.
Yes. Yes. And Yes. That would be so great!
The ‘#’ might work, but I fear that is will have an impact on the performance. I’ll try.
