Flatten Complete Composites

I have not plumbed the depths of Complete Composites, so this might be achievable with the right options or setting of glyph names ... but ...

When I execute Complete Composites on, for example, $1EA4 (Acircumflexacute) I get a composite with two glyphs: Acircumflex plus an acute. The Acircumflex is itself a composite. Re-positioning is needed on the stack of two diacriticals, but since the Acircumflex is itself a composite, the A and the circumflex cannot be repositioned. I have been rebuilding the composite by hand, which seems a waste ...

Is there a better way? If not, this might be a feature request ... Thanks!!

If you really want to be able to move any of the components, edit the definition in CompositeData.xml.
Which version of CompositeData.xml are you using? In FontCreator 12, A circumflex acute use base glyph A with stacking accent circumflex acute. To edit the stacking circumflex acute accent, right-click on it and open in new window.

Current Definition:

Code: Select all

<Composite><!-- A Circumflex Acute -->
