Feels like I spend so much time typing and carefully selecting different layers to be able to compare between masters…to only have it all revert to the selected master after saving and reopening the file.
Are there plans of incorporating a preserve layer setup for all the edit view tabs as part of saving a glyphs file?
Also, in the current version, is there any special way of exporting a particular setup of whatever is in edit view…being able to save it separately to open up again at a later time?
Not entirely sure. Thinking out loud.
Maybe similar to Samples Texts.
Maybe there is an Export Tab Layout that saves whatever is happening in the current tab to some sort of format as an actual file (JSON? if that is what it can be used for…in any case, something that can save glyphs, order, linebreaks, layer info) then if a person opens the glyphs file they can import the layout template file and it would recreate it in the tab.
Maybe it would be a better idea to make a script populating the tab with certain layers? I have one that simply shows all layers, but if you give an idea of how you choose layers, it shouldn’t be hard to make a more specific tool.
