hello :D
I have a question about the vertical and horizontal alignment of the font.

I want to sort the font based on the green line in the picture.
Does the program have the ability to automatically sort in this way?
If this is not the case, should we arrange them manually?
If there's a way, please let me know.
It would be better if you could explain it by image.

I am currently using the Font Creator 12 professional Edition.
I'll be waiting for the reply.

That is not possible.

These are the available options on the Overview Toolbar for sorting the glyphs in the font. This sorting method is temporary. It does not actually change the glyph index of each glyph in the font.

There are also these options available on the Tools menu. This method changes the index of each glyph.

Thank you for your answer. :D
I wish I had this kind of function, but that's so sad.
I am making Hangul font. Each letter has a different height, so I want to have a function to arrange it automatically and neatly.
If you are updating a new program, please consider the reflection please.

I have another question.
Is there any function to place a reference line at the top and arrange letters vertically to match that line?
And Does the tools-Glyph Transformer have character alignment?
If there's no way, should I arrange it manually?

FontCreator 12 has a new feature to show metric guides for superscripts, subscripts, etc. If the glyphs have a suffix of .sups the superscript metric guides will be shown.

Otherwise, just drag a horizontal guideline to any position. Double-click the guideline to adjust its position precisely, or double-click the ruler to edit all guidelines.

The glyph transform wizard includes a Position feature which allows you to align glyph outlines.
