UNSOLVED Metrics Machine 1.0.3 Group Editor

    1. Can “Side 1” and “Side 2” please be returned to “Left” and “Right” like the app? Kerning exported from the extension doesn't seem to be compatible with the app, editing the xml to “left” and “right” seems to fix it. And it seems to make the exception chooser have weird names.

    2. Can the glyphs be coloured black, not red?

  • @frederik Ah, ok. That sorta makes sense. I imagine there is some deep logic to figure out here. In the mean time, could the wording perhaps match the group editor and exception dialog?

    At the moment it's Side 1 | Side 2 in the group editor, and Kern 1 | Kern 2 in the exception dialog.

    1. left right is being replaced by side1 side2 mainly because there is no implication of a writing direction. I remember this was under debate to change it back. If this changes back, MetricsMachine will change the wording.

    2. The color of your glyph depends on the color of the layer. It should be black as kerning is not separated from layers, kerning is always applied on the default layer.
