Component glyphs’ sidebearings in autosaved files are shifted 100% to one side.
“Hadesender” and “Shhadesender” glyphs are missing /c in their titles (desCender).
Placeholder font doesn’t have “Shadescender” glyphs.
Automatic ligatures doesn’t work for Cyrillic, for example “yi-cy_yi-cy”, which looks the same as idieresis_idieresis. You have to do it manually, thus disabling automatic generation for the sake of few ligatures.
(misc) Removing many glyphs at once is buggy sometimes.
(old) Unresizeable info window and broken commenting in OT code.
Lowercase class could be generated automatically the same way as uppercase is done.
Filters should be right-clickable. Much faster and intuitive than pressing a little gear icon that’s placed by glyph info.
Filters could be rearrangeable.
Manual lists could be updated be dragging glyphs into them.
I use the system font for drawing the placeholder glyphs. And it works for me.
ligatures are build a little different for glyphs with script suffix. the suffix will be added to the hole ligature: yi_yi-cy and add a .liga to add it to the liga feature (otherwise it will end up in the dlig feature).
improved that quite a bit for the next update.
the font info window is already. What do you mean with commenting in OT code?
Where do you like to do that. In the font view or the edit view?
you can write a small script for that.
just double click the filter.
this is a good idea
if you select a list to edit it, you do only see glyphs that are in the list already. And if you make a new list filer, just select some glyphs before you create the filter.
this is already on my list.
noted. I tried this but there where some problems, I do not remember it any more…
I don’t think this can satisfyingly be built into the standard feature set of Glyphs because there are two many ways of doing that. You can alternate glyph shapes on the go in several ways. Or you can pseudo-randomize x number of glyphs in a backtrack sequence. The Beowulferize script makes use of the latter, but if you already have your own ssXX glyphs, I’d recommend the Create pseudorandom calt feature script.
I should specify that metrics bug happens only after app crashes. When it auto-relaunches from autosave. “Normal” autosaves are fine.
Right now you can hold Cmd and drag for addition. So if after selecting you hold Cmd and drag over already selected items, they deselect (as in Fontlab). Or, if this creates complications with what to activate, then deselect would work with Cmd + Alt/Shift.
And by “randomizer” I’ve meant not contextual alternates, but node-repositioning filter (effect), like one in FontLab. Which helps to create press or grunge effects.
