This is not strictly about Glyphs but I was wondering how others deal with this.
When I update the font files in the Adobe fonts folder it takes a few seconds until InDesign updates them, fine. However, the problem is that it it does not update the line breaks in paragraph setting (assuming I have changed the spacing of my fonts). This is a somewhat new problem. Until a couple of years ago, InDesign did update the line breaks as well (but only if the document was open while the font files were replaced, oh well). Copying and pasting-in-place a text frame usually demonstrates the issue: the line breaks in the pasted frame are different. Maybe that’s an intentional behaviour in InDesign that makes sense in the real world but it is very annoying for type designers.
So, the question is: How to update the line breaks most easily?
My solution is to replace each space character in the open document(s) with a character that is definitely not in the document (usually
` as it can be typed quickly) and then back to space.
How do you do this? Do you know more elegant solutions? Am I missing something? I find it really inconvenient that I have to do this practically whenever I update the fonts.
