Features (Code doesn't appear!)

Hello All,

Is there any problem with features in glyphs Version 2.4.4 (1075)?
I can not read or writ the code! only blue text appears without glyphs names!!


any help please.


Two possible reasons. If the app is damaged, redownload it from http://updates.glyphsapp.com/latest2.php and replace the one you have in your Applications folder.

If this does not help, there is something more severe broken in your system. You can try in a different user to see if it is a global problem or constrained to your user.

Are you using some kind of system tinkering tool? Like antivirus software or system font replacement hacks?

thanks mekkablue

I try to reinstall the app but nothing happened same issue!!
features work fine!! when I try to launch glyphs 2 (try version) with new account on the same Mac.
problem happened on my default account with license version!!

what can I do?

Not sure I understand correctly. Everything is OK in the other user? If yes: Then the problem must be inside your user settings, and not in the app.

  • Remove the prefs, as described in this tutorial (scroll down a little).
  • Restart your Mac with the Shift key held down (deletes caches), restart a second time without.

I don’t think it is a Problem with the app. I suspect it to be a font problem. Try clearing the font cache: https://www.glyphsapp.com/tutorials/eliminating-font-cache-problems

I did all that

nothing happened … same problem :pensive:

hello Georg

I think it is a problem with my Mac admin user account ( with registered version of glyphs)
because glyphs work fine with other user account!

the problem happened also with new font file .


See what is different between the new user and your admin user, and delete caches, preferences and/or apps you only run in the admin user (especially potential malware like MacKeeper or antivirus apps). Also uninstall all locally installed fonts (FontBook > User), and restart with the Shift key held down.

If none of these help, consider transferring your documents to a new admin user.

I will transferring to new admin user.

thank you Rainer :rose:
