I suggest...

Ability to move baseline for all characters / move all characters

It would be nice if there was a button to move all characters up or down, to be able to fix fonts with the wrong baseline aka with characters appearing to high or too low.

    So, there are two answers to your request. The first answer is - you are in luck, the feature we are working on adding right now is a "move all glyphs" global action, which would do what you are asking.
    The second answer is a little more philosophical. "Baseline" is probably the most important key metric in designing a typeface... but it is just an abstraction. If all your glyphs sat 10 units above the baseline, then the overall typeface would appear normal (the only thing that may be odd is the underlined version of your text). So saying "Wrong Baseline" is a bit odd, but could technically happen. Would you mind sending me a font file that has a wrong baseline? mail@glyphrstudio.com thanks!
