I’ve encountered a problem when working on metrics and toggling between masters. I haven’t found any topics already posted about.
I’m working on a typeface that has two masters (Light and Black). Let’s say I’m working on the metrics of the letter E:
- on the Light master, the RSB value is
- on the Black master, the RSB value is
If I’m on the Light master, and I click the RSB value so
==H-49 becomes editable, and then I switch to the other master (by clicking the button at the top-left of the window), the RSB value in the Black master gets overwritten? (That is to say, the RSB value for the Black master is no longer
=H-42 but instead
Is this a bug, or am I working improperly? Is it a bad idea to switch between masters to compare spacing values within them?
Here are some screengrabs to show the steps visually:
