TT Hinting diacritics in FontLab
0

I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to use the visual TT hinting tool in FontLab to move one component of a composite glyph in FontLab without messing up the hinting of the individual component. For example, if I am hinting a composite Ecaron, and I want to move the caron up one pixel, adding a link to separate the outline of the two components messes up the caron shape. I'm looking for a way to bump the caron up without deforming it.

Try an intermediate (M) full pixel delta. This method seems to work cleanly and doesn't mess up other hinting on the composites.
