    crode, here you are.
    Yes, Karabiner could help.
    In scripts you should check units. I work in CMYK and metric scale mostly, you could edit it to perform for your cause.

    Ryan, I can share two scripts (plus and minus) you can wrap in actions and assign F hotkeys to it. Will it suffice for now? I agree it should come from the box, but this works too.
    And if you are on Windows, you can use AHK to reassign them to any other combination you want, not only Fs. Mac has something other for this, I forgot the name.

    14 again (about a point at x-hight).
    Now it snaps all right! ...except for the 'align 0' lies

    28 again. I can’t attach the GIF for it, so there’s a link to the direct link to the image:

    30. I was not able to make angular guides work, until I force a single glyph snapping. After it’s released, there are no angular guides again. Another GIF shows me trying to build a specific continuation, bu Ai highlights the center of already created path and won’t draw an intersection I need. So finally I create a next point almost randomly and then move it in place — not great.

    29. Ai won’t draw an intersection of angular guide and glyphbound guide :(

    28. Well, angular kind of works... But I have a lot of issues with prioritizing. Ai tends to ignore it almost fully, preferring a point that is very far away from the focus point... My tolerance is 3px only (and it’s still broke, as you may know), and Snap to Point is off.
    You see me trying to start a path and continue it as a continuation of the glyph’s diagonal, but fail, until I zoom in enough. Still, I fail :)
    Yes, I have construction and transform options enabled for smart guides. Disabling them does not solve this.

    17 again. Ah, right, Smart guides should be on! Hm. Then problem 24 again. So you can’t change option for glyph snapping, but highlighting anchors still makes it snap, even when glyph snapping is off :(
    Still you should create a switch right in the Type panel to enable the snapping without going to View.... I know about global-snap-place (can’t wait), but it won’t solve this completely too.

    27. When a proximity guide is drawn, please place small 'x' sign not at the edge of the bounds, but at a point this guide is based on. Like if it’s build on an overshoot of an 'o' glyph, place the x-mark on this particular overshoot’s tangent point. If there are many points contributing to the guide, mark the closest one.

    26. Not aligned to zero, Ai lies, you can clearly see the guide is tilted. It also happens in similar cases when no text involved (the second image).

    25. For some reason smart guides that are based on glyph point are not green, but magenta. I assume it’s a bug, actually. It would be some much more useful if these stay green all the time, when at least one thing participating in glyph related. And it would be so much better, if Ai could draw green and magenta simultaneously: glyph based guide in green and normal in magenta, intersecting, for example.

    24. Highlight Anchor option (Prefs: Selection & Anchor Display) also works for text, when Snap to Glyph option is on, but all other snaps (smart and to point) are off. This relates to a bug (rather an issue) when you don’t want Ai to snap to point, but because of this highlight option you still have it! I emailed about this and demoed it to Varun.
    I’m worried it might cause problems.
    Also, the 'edge' of green highlighted anchor is 2px wide, while normal is only 1. Not a bug, just an observation. I kind of love it! :)

    23. Play button in 'how to' blank document is not locked :)

    22. See the image.
    Also 'Feedback' button doesn’t work.
    And if you have a new document about snapping to glyph, the Learn will open another one if I run 'See how again'. Also, the document name is blank and I’m not sure it would not be confusing.

    Aviansh, 24.4 RC3, with 'fixed' error messages. It runs :)
    17. I see new icons there, good. They look better than those you screenshoted. But they are all grayed out, while the option in View is on! Turning is on and off doesn’t help.
    18. (i) icon in the panel leads to https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/snap-to-glyph.html and gives 404.
    19. Icons need more differences (btw I love height options icons for the same reason): two of them say 'Ax'. If you change the first (not second) one to, say, 'Az', it would be easier to locate 'x-height'. I think that 'Ab' could be even better ('baseline').
    20. I like the 'proximity' word, good! The icon though, doesn’t provide enough info. There’s no guide at A's top, or guides near overshoots (of course, they would be too similar to baseline and x-height there at this scale).
    21. New Learn is cool. Slide 3 though can make you think that this relates to angular case, while it’s not.

    16. Angular guides does not work. Great idea! If it would work better then Smart Guides work now — it would be massive.
    See, I can move the point on a live extension (unless the adjacent points have no handles — I emailed about this at sharewithai), but if I try to place a new point on the extension, Ai would give me nothing. ...and I'm not sure that you can do it with angular guides for glyphs, because the result I saw in the PR feature demo had not angles matched.
    It also won’t help if I hover the pen over the bottom point to make rubber band 'notice' it (sometimes it helps for other cases). I know that snapping requires big rework, but now angular guides does show nothing for me, even captions I saw in demo.

    15. Beta got updated. No new icons yet. Hover hints doesn’t provide info for all the options.

    14. When dragging a multi-line text along the vertical axis, its baselines and x-height lines are shown (which is great), but only the current one and not all others, which would help to choose the line to snap to.

    13. Ai won’t snap to the glyph point located exactly on the 'x-height' line, when corresponding options are on

    12. In 24.3.0.52 Ai still display green guides and performs snapping to glyphs when the option is turned off

    11. When I disable 'Tight Bounds' option, snapping to baselines (it's on) in multi-line point text stops working.

    10. It is still active when I disable the option (View > Snap to Glyph(s)). I have Smart guides on and Snap to point off, and it still snaps to tightbounds and glyph points.

    Oh, yes! My precious feature is finally here! I'm so glad that A) you picked it up, B) it works as intended from the get go, C) you managed to solve all the possible issues we discussed. You even picked the color for guides I proposed, green!

    First impression:

    1. You should definitely think about Snapping panel, that would combine all snaps options we would now have.

    2. You should make hover hints when you hold cursor over the options. It's great that you decided to have Secondary lines as a separate option, but it's not self-explanatory. I kind of knew what this could be, but still had to spent 15 seconds testing it.

    3. If you have secondaries and points off (and all other options on), and you have a line 'Lorem', starting with a capital, you won't be able to snap to the x-height!

    4. What it you highlight glyph points with green too? This would indicate their 'liveness' more, because otherwise users can think that they have their text accidentally outlined.

    5. Secondary lines should have a caption and indicate a point that is used for snapping. For example, if you have it snapping to 's' top arc, place a cross at the top point of it (right now cross is placed on the left edge)

    6. Sometimes green captions overlay default magenta ones (usually it's 'tightbound'+'intersect'). I think you could omit one in these cases, but not sure which one.

    7. I think secondaries should be off by default, and points on (but with green captions!). When you have points on, you just don't need secondaries that much — of course, in case when the font have proper tangent points.

    8. Tightbound applies to every line — great!

    9. Well, I think that you can leave magenta as magenta for glyph points, but try to highlight a glyph still in green (yes, I remember that I voted against it, it's just in case if you cant' make green for points work)

    That's all for now. I will continue to test it. Again, my thanks to the team for making it real. I'm so proud of it! Along with the height options this would be a thing that really makes changes.
    But don't forget about bugs ;)

    I also offered AstuteGraphics to solve this problem with their VectorFisrtAid plugin, and they did it in A DAY.
    Now it would be able to detect groups inside compound paths and fix them.
    It does not mean that Illustrator team should not fix it, on the contrary.
    Please vote for this, if you are agree.

    And Figma already have the plugin:
    https://www.figma.com/community/plugin/781591244449826498/Easing-Gradient
    Not a great realization though, but it’s there.

    Shift + Arrow does ×10 nudge, leave it as it is.
    Alt + Arrow is reserved for 'nudge with a copy', don’t touch it (and it takes away Alt completely)
    So we have Ctrl+Arrow and Ctrl+Shift+Arrow left: first one is ideal to have 1/10 of the increment value, and the second could be even 1/100.

    Aha, makes more sense.
    Still, a screenshot, please :)
    If you can attach a photo of you screen, it would help too.

    Please make a screenshot and attach it in the comments.
    It might be no Ai’s fault, but you monitor physical calibration.
    Anyway, a proof is welcome.

    Derek, I believe that you are wrong. Please check the GIF attached.
    The result you had in your picture is exactly what two ticked Appearance options do for the Eyedropper tool.

    See, the fills of children in a group come over the common fill you pick from the green rectangle. It is correct, when you know what you are doing. You can move items in a stack to change it after, but I suggest you do check tool’s options, untick both Appearance (if they are ticked) and try again.
    If it is me who is wrong, and you find your options unchanged for real — please, record it and share here, I’ll try to help.

    Derek, what are your settings for the Eyedropper tool? Pick the tool and hit Enter to open them.
    There’s a difference between copying/pasting attributes and the whole appearance.
    I believe you have two top checkmarks set, right?

    Also, please take a look at the Apperance panel you have opened.
    The green fill is there, but is under the 'contents' — which are your blue and orange fills. Of course you don’t see the green, these two are over it :)

    Appearance is a very powerful tool, but it requires some attention.
    Please message back if you figure this out.
