“…wouldn’t it be easier to let glyphs tell the user what the possibilities are?”
I just had the insane vision of opt-clicking a glyph in the font tab and a huge spread of possible accented and variant glyphs could be. Of course this is probably utterly impractical, but I feel compelled to share this vision/
DTF: in a way, that’s already what right-clicking a language or category does in the Font view. It’s more practical because if you have added one Vietnamese letter, you probably want the other ones too.
What I thought about the other day was an option to find all composites (already in the font) where the current glyph is a part of. These are hard to find sometimes. I’ll write a script for that.
