Hi. I need some help. Is this a bug of Glyphs.app, or a problem caused by my OS?
I wanted to give my font family a localized Japanese family name and Japanese style names. So I added a custom parameter localizedFamilyName to the font tab, and added localizedStyleName to every instance in the instances tab, then exported them. When I double-clicked the resulting OTFs to install them, the Font Book app only recognizes localized family/style names of an instance whose base name is “Regular”. Other instances behave as if they have a separate (unlocalized) family name, and they don’t seem to bear localized style names.
Plus, if I just set localizedFamilyName and not localizedStyleName, the family name doesn’t have effect to any of the instances.
In the attached Glyphs file, I created a font family whose base family name is “Example”, and added a localizedFamilyName of “Japanese;例”. This family has three instances, whose base style names are “Regular”, “Regular1” and “Regular2” each. Then I gave them localizedStyleName of “Japanese;標準”, “Japanese;標準1” and “Japanese;標準2” respectively.
The attached image shows that the Font Book app only recognizes localized family/style names of “Regular” (標準). Here, Regular is treated as a member of the “例” family, but the other two belong to the “Example” family.
I am using Glyphs ver. 2.5.1 (1141) on OS X 10.11.6 (El Capitan).
