Anchor Overlay Tool

Just another way to add anchors and preview accent positions in RoboFont. Installs as a tool in the glyph window toolbar.

  • Anchor placement: Double-click anywhere to place an anchor. The anchors are named automatically based on the click position (top, center, bottomRight, etc.)
  • Alignment assistance: Select one or more anchors or points and use the alignment buttons

Menu additions:

  • Recompose Selected Glyphs (ctrl-cmd-R): Reposition components in current or selected glyphs based on anchor positions.
  • Export Anchor Table (CSV): Export all anchor names and positions for open UFOs as comma-separated text file. This helps comparing position consistency across the font family and noticing any missing anchors.
