'CID not found in font' Error when generating otf


Im not experienced with editing fonts and .otf file peculiarities, but im trying to add an ō latin o with macron to a font and cannot seem to get it to export. it shows this error:

Error: “CID not found in font (text was “\9444”)” in Feature aalt in line: 28
looking at the log created shows this:

mp/generateFont.command ; exit;
Ollies-iMac:~ Ollie$ /Users/Ollie/Library/Application\ Support/Glyphs/Temp/FOT-TsukuARdGothic\ Std-temp/generateFont.command ; exit;

If anyone can help I’d really appreciate it.


Try generating the font with ROS 0 (zero)

Thanks that worked!

Seems to have given me a new problem of duplicate mars glyphs, but thats no problem.

Thank you so much!


What version of Glyphs do you have?
