Import Font feature

I’m running into problems when using the ‘import font’ parameter.

My master source contains Burmese and Khmer only. I am trying to import a Glyphs file that contains Latin and Thai (including glyphs, kerning and all OT features).

When I select the file to import, the glyphs are added to the main font view, and are locked from editing. That makes sense.

But the kerning and OT features from the imported file don’t appear.


Yes. That’s on our list. But the good news is that it’s cosmetic for the most part. They actually kern.

But the OT features you need to collect in the main file. For now, ignore the errors. They will compile.

Sorry about the inconvenience.


Actually, I want to import the features from separate .fea files for each script. That works fine if I import features for Khmer, as the master file contains the Khmer glyphs. But I get an error for Latin, because those glyphs are in the secondary source.

And it won’t compile:

(I don’t want to try and copy-paste hundreds of lines of code from the .fea files from the designers into separate features in the main file, that’s a good way to risk human error, and it would take quite an effort to figure out the order of features/lookups if the source .fea files order them in different ways.)

Does my plan make sense?

Little bump :slight_smile: Can the include be fixed please?

Another hiccup.

Because the Thai marks are in the secondary, linked file and the dotted circle is in the master file, no mark features are being generated automatically for combinations of Thai marks with dotted circle. Same .glyphs file I sent Georg on 9 September.

I can’t get linked .fea files to work on the imported font, neither by including them in the imported font nor by including in the main file.
