Anchors are single points with a position and a name.
Anchors are used mostly as position references when building new glyphs with components. They enable a system for aligning shapes in relation to each other.
To add anchors to a glyph, follow these steps in the Glyph Editor:
- Right-click on the canvas to activate the Editing Tool’s contextual menu.
- Choose Add Anchor to open the Add Anchor sheet.
- Give the anchor a name (required).
- Click on the Add button or press Enter to create the anchor.
