[glyphs Mini] Dumb question: How to copy glyph to another without entering into Edit view?

Want to copy glyph A into B, but haven’t found a way to do it without entering Edit view for both.

Currently the steps needed to do this are:

  1. select origin glyph
  2. enter Edit view
  3. Select All
  4. Select All
  5. Copy
    6.Close Edit view
  6. Select destination glyph
  7. Enter Edit view
  8. Paste
    phew!

Yes, Glyphs Mini is not (yet) built for this. Workaround suggestions:

  1. Delete target glyph: select it in Font View and click the minus button at the bottom.
  2. Duplicate the source glyph: select it in Font View and press Cmd-D (or Glyph > Duplicate)
  3. Rename the new glyph: it should already be selected, so just press the Return key and type the name, then confirm with Return again.

Attention: Singleton kerning (i.e., not group kerning) may be deleted when you delete the glyph in step 1.

Or open both glyphs in Edit view:

  1. Select both source and target glyphs in Edit view
  2. Open a new tab (Cmd-T)
  3. Switch between the two with double clicking.

nice workaround , thanks :+1:
