Separate metrics for layers?
niels last edited by gferreira
At the API it looks like
glyph.getLayer()has its own
However, in the UI the width is grayed out when a layer is activated, and programmatically setting a layer width doesn’t seem to stick, that is, either gets lost or overwrites the ‘foreground’ layer width.
I’m working around by doing
glyph.getLayer().lib[‘layer.advance’] = dict(width=some_number)but perhaps it useful to implement a ‘layers have separate metrics’ behavior just as FontLab did with its ‘mask’ layer?
As the current implementation layers glyph.width is synced across all layers.
This will change when UFO3 is fully implemented
thanks for understanding

Okay. I think I do understand.
So thank you for pointing out and thanks in [hopefully not indefinite] advance for doing that UFO3 implementation
