Is glow & soft edge removed from fontwork on purpose? It doesn't show anymore in the sidebar

This means it wants to be bibisected. I have no idea who did that and for what.
Comment 4 Kevin Suo 2021-11-15 11:19:08 UTC
Could you please provide a screenshot showing where the Glow or soft edge is in I tried to bibisect but I do not find them.

screensot with build 864cbd8

But I do see this fontwork with the most updated master build 864cbd8 as of today. Am I missing something??

Oh I see, it's on the side bar...

    fontwork: add sidebar panel

Adding Szymon Kłos to cc: Would you please take a look? Is the 'soft edge' and glow effects, as previously shown on the side bar, removed by your commits intentionally, or by mistake?
Comment 9 Szymon Kłos 2021-11-16 08:01:52 UTC
I see, this was by mistake. I ported my patch introducing fontwork context from older branch where soft edge and glow was not present I think. We have to add that context to these panels.
