Renaming to production names issue

Hi everyone! Good fact that if you have a glyphs file with nice names for glyphs and it has features, when I’m exporting a UFO with production names, the glyphs are being renamed in the feature code as well. However, if your nice-named glyphs appear in any metric keys expressions, none would be renamed. The resulted UFO will have some invalid metric keys expressions. I have a feature request — maybe, the name conversion could be improved to include renaming in MKE as well?

Where are the metrics keys accessed outside of Glyphs?

Fontlab 7, for example. We in Paratype use all the editors in our workflow.

I didn’t know that. I’ll have a look.

I have the same issue that the nice name in the metric key is not converted to the production name when the option is checked during UFO export, on Glyphs 2. :slight_smile: Will there be a fix for that?

It will most likely not be fixed for Glyphs 2.
