    I’m creating diacritics by following the process of establishing anchor for base glyph and diacritc > Add Glyphs > e.g. agrave=a+grave@top

    However in some instances the side bearings of the base glyph (let’s say u) do not match the side bearings of uogonek.

    Does anyone know how to create diacritics using components as mentioned above so that side bearings match base glyph?

    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

    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.
