Does anyone know how to create diacritics using components as mentioned above so that side bearings match base glyph? April 5, 2017 at 07:57 #6312 frederikKeymaster he Josh could you provide a real example? it should take the metrics of the first component, in your example agrave=a+grave@top the agrave should have the same metrics as a thanks April 7, 2017 at 19:56 #6314 joshMember hi Frederik, the agrave would be an example. My a sidebearing L=51, R=69 and when composed agrave is L=51, R=60 It appears to be consistently subtracting different amounts of the right side bearing on component glyphs only, if that helps? Is there is a way to output the process to a text file that could be inspected to see what’s happening? apologies for minimal knowledge in helping troubleshoot this. Thanks.
