In Glyphs 1.3.6 deleting a layer while in edit view will “lock” the tab. Nothing in that tab can be edited or selected. Switching to a different tab and selecting something will usually “unlock” the locked tab, but sometimes the locked tab never responds again and must be closed. This happens in single and multiple master fonts.
Does this happen with version 1.3.7, I released earlier? As I can’t reproduce it.
So you have a tab with a few letters and on of them has an extra layer that you select and then delete?
Since updating to 2.4 I get this behaviour as well. I’ve updated to #957 but the problem persists. I’ve made a screen recording but I don’t know how to show it here.
put the screencast in Dropbox (or similar) and post a link to it.
here it is:
I can’t reproduce this. Can you send me the .glyphs file (to support at this domain)?
It’s not the file; it happens with any file I open. I thought maybe a plugin (or combination of) was the problem, so I turned off al plugins. No difference.
It’s not a huge problem but annoying at times.
Can you check the Console.app if it shows something?
There is a number of Glyphs related errors but as far as I can tell they all seem to be about something else.
there are some plugins that have errors. Can you check the console without plugins?
