Make radical changes that you would never dare to do if it were only vectors. Then you save the image in the same place, same name. (look up how Procreate does that if you have to, it's not difficult)
3Then back to RoboFont, with the same glyph open, run the
import_drawingsscript. This pulls the image from iCloud and copies it to the background.
