Toolbars - Anchors

The Anchors tool window gives you a quick overview of the anchors defined for a glyph. Anchors are used in the following OpenType lookups:




Cursive Attachments


With the first three lookups the anchors define where glyphs are stacked onto each other, and with cursive attachments the special Entry and Exit anchors are used to place two glyphs next to each other.


When an anchor is in use by a lookup it cannot be deleted, and a linked icon () will appear in front of it. To edit an anchor you can drag it in the glyph edit window, in the Anchors tool window click the "Edit" button on the toolbar, or double-click on the entry in the list.

To add an anchor at a specific position, right-click inside the Glyph Edit window, and select Add Anchor.
