Interesting, thanks! What's the name of the file in the context

I admit I don't really understand what you said... Does it mean that I
can change the left value of the glyph node just for this node without
impacting the whole language? If not, how can I change the left for one
word and not for the word after?

For instance if I have


œdipus oedipus

and I want

œ-di-pus oe-di-pus

should I just change the left field of the first (œ) node to 1?

Thank you,
