Is it possible to add multiple accents to a base glyph with anchors & Glyph Construction?



  • Is it possible to add multiple accents to a base glyph with anchors & Glyph Construction?

    It seems like it should be, but it's not working for me as I expect. I don't think I have a syntax error, so I'm not sure if I'm missing something, or if this just really isn't possible with Glyph Construction.

    Base Glyph dotlessi

    Accent 1, dotaccentcomb

    Accent 2, ogonekcomb

    Unexpected result #1

    idotbelow=dotlessi+ ogonekcomb@ogonek + dotaccentcomb@top

    Reversing the order of my glyph recipe comes closer, but still isn't what I'm hoping for:

    idotbelow=dotlessi+dotaccentcomb@top + ogonekcomb@ogonek

    Have I made some kind of simple error, here? The only hack a collaborator could find was to put a _top anchor in the /ogonek, but that seems like a really overly-complex workaround which could come back to bite me later.

    @StephenNixon you need to change the current glyph when aligning the second accent:

    idotbelow = dotlessi + ogonekcomb@ogonek + dotaccentcomb@dotlessi:top
    


  • Ahhh very nice. Thank you for letting me know!
