Testing strings and glyph order

How would you produce various testing strings? I have this:


select the glyphs in the font view and choose Copy Glyphs Names from the context menu.

A-ha! That’s good, thanks.

Q1: I also use “Unicode to Nice Names” service menu. You have to apply that to manually selected bits of text, but this is also a nice way of converting the glyph names outside the app.

Q2: GlyphsOrder custom parameter (handbook p47, 50, 88).
