When I try to update the features for my Devanagari typeface it shows this error. For context, I wanted the uMatra-deva and uuMatra-deva to show correctly but it now comes as a separate glyph plus I do not understand what the error message says.
It says the feature mentions d-deva but there is no d-deva glyph in the font.
Thank you for the reply. But I couldn’t find any way to solve this issue. I did not find the said glyph either. I am a beginner at this and any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
You need to add a
d-deva glyph to your font.
Here is how you add glyphs to the font:
There is a handbook and a number of short tutorial videos on the Get Started page. Perhaps you want to take a look at those.
There is no d-deva in the sidebar, or in defaultLanguages.plist. Should it be there?
Shouldn’t it be da-deva instead?
There is a difference between
da-deva. The former has a halant, the latter does not.
Yes. But this is a bug in Glyphs. It uses d-deva in the automatically generated blws lookup.
d-deva will not take in a matra,
da-deva can. I edited this and changed
da-deva and the features compile successfully. For this reason, I had to disable ‘
Gerenate Features Automatically’ for this table.
The problem might be the name of the
d_rVocalicMatra. If it would be
da_rVocalicMatra, the automatic code would be fine. I’m not at my Mac to check where the
d_rVocalicMatra is coming from.
It’ll also be helpful to know the expected form of the glyph. The name
d_rVocalicMatra-deva suggests that there is a
halant and a
vocalic-r attached to
