Actually, it doesn't look bad. Do you want to work on this further so I can include the patch?

For the n glyph,

- the thickness of both stems should be better in balance. the left one should be heavier, or the right one lighter.

- the hole should be a bit wider.

To properly balance it, you need to print it (on paper, not on screen) out next to other glyphs from the font (but not f and p, since they are extra heavy).

For the circle: use a circle output routine (see

- the property should have a graphical name. eg. something like 'circled-tip

- this can be folded into one statement.

  if ((grow_dir > 0) && !broken[LEFT])
+       mol.add_at_edge (X_AXIS, LEFT, Stencil (circle), 0, 0);
+      if ((grow_dir < 0) && !broken[RIGHT])
+       mol.add_at_edge (X_AXIS, RIGHT, Stencil (circle), 0, 0);
