Known Issues

We are aware of these issues:

  1. Outlines are not shown correctly after opening a file saved in a previous version of LTTR/INK. This is a one-time visual issue caused by a limitation of Glyphs 3 API. The outlines will correct themselves after you save, close, and reopen the file. We're discussing possibilities of adding a Glyphs 3 API for this scenario.
  2. When you ask Glyphs to Scale Font to new Units per Em, stroke's widths and angles are not scaled – you need to update Font Master defaults manually. This is a limitation of Glyphs 3 API. We're discussing possibilities of adding a Glyphs 3 API for this scenario.
  3. When a stroke handle is on the same position as its stroke node, stroke widths and angles might not be respected when generating outlines. This is a Glyphs issue. We've reported it and we're waiting for a fix.
  4. When you select multiple nodes and try to move them by mouse, only the one under the mouse is moved while others are deselected.

Should you run into anything else, report it to us please so we can investigate.
