Adding new glyphs to an all-caps font

Hi there
Still a beginner here. I want to make an all caps font. So I managed to add 2 unicodes with the method mentioned in the learning section. (Yes I do read the manuals sometimes)

Works fine for A-Z, 2 unicodes there. Can anybody give me a hint on how to get there for Ä/ä, é/É … in an elegant easy way. I know there is. It is just not obvious to me.

Have mercy with a beginners questions, please. Thank you

Keep adding uppercase letters and updating the glyph info.

I have all the uppercase letters with diacritics. So right now I add both unicodes for upper and lowercase letter in there by hand.
Works so far but is probably not the most elegant way?

What mekkablue is saying is that you can add the uppercase glyphs (for example, Aacute, …) and then select the newly added glyphs and run GlyphUpdate Glyph Info. Then, as long as there are no lowercase versions of the glyphs in your font (aacute, …), the uppercase glyphs will get both the uppercase and lowercase Unicode code points assigned to them.

So I look up the unicode for the small letter and paste it by hand.

ok. I See. Unfortunately I did the Uppercase Glyphs instead of the lowercase.

ohhh… I See!

Seems to work
