I have some problem with metrics classes in fontlab. To illustrate this I will give example - I made metric class for "H" - ist called .HR and it describes the right side of "H". Inside class there are letters like "I,J,N" and so on, and listed here with accents like: Iacute Icircumflex Idieresis and so on. When I go to metrics asistance and want to apply the sidebarings for letters in calss with option "use measurent line" fontlab seems to ignore that. Lets say the Icircumflex after this operation should have value like -5 on the righ side but it is still 80. Fontlab ignores the opion "use measuring line". Accendet characters are components, but even I decompose them - it still doesn't work.
I dont get it. Maybe I misunderstand the idea of meric assistance. But I think I remember that I did this kind of things before and it was OK. Thanks for any help and just in case - sorry for my English.
