Can a global transformation (say italicise) applied in the Font window also be applied to the relevant layers? (Or an option to apply the effect to layers be added). Currently, you need to go through each character to see if it has a bracket/brace layer, then apply any transformation individually. A flag to show characters with layers would also be useful. Thanks.
That is on my list already.
Sorry to do some necromancy, but any news on this?
Or are there some good tips for transforming a high amount of layers? (yeah, I should have thought out some things before I leapt and found all my metrics were a bit off)
For a large number of layers you can script it:
Glyphs.app Python Scripting API Documentation — Glyphs.app Python Scripting API 3.0.4 documentation and
Glyphs.app Python Scripting API Documentation — Glyphs.app Python Scripting API 3.0.4 documentation
If it’s a metric problem you’ll probably just need the first one, applyTransform, to adjust the x position.
