Today I purchased the Gylphs Mini 2, with the help of Tim Forssman, but the app is very buggy now.
I opened an open source font with it, it warned me that it is locked and it suggested me to duplicate. I duplicated, but I kept receiving repeatedly the same warning, it duplicated more than 5 times everywhere.
Glyphs Mini is turning impossible for me to open the other fonts, because that same warning of locked font always appears like an eternal and locks me every time I open the app. While I kept that warning of the locked font, I tried to open with other fonts, but it trashed and closed. Glyphs Mini with the permanent and eternal warning of locked font no longer allows me to open and edit other fonts. I had to clean Glyphs Mini caches and cookies to remove the font and the warning.
After cleaning the caches and the cookies, I opened the app with a font, it closed and trashed.
Your app is excessively and ubiquitously buggy.
I am really and totally frustrated and deceived with you. I’ve already contacted Tim.
Can you try turning on cutting edge in Glyphs mini > preferences > updates, and see if the error persists?
Where was the font when you opened it for editing? Was it an installed font, or in use otherwise? I have a suspicion that it still tries to open it for editing. Try disabling the open recent documents option in system preferences > general.
After the update and I opened a OTF or TTF file and added a new glyph, I received the warnng, and clicked in OK, I still received the same warning endlessly, and I clicked in “Save as”, it took more than 3 minutes to save it. I had to force quit.
I tested, I saved as a .glyphs file and it worked. But when I open a locked font OTF and I added a new glyph, the warning was different: “The operation could not be completed.” After I clicked “OK”, it got unlocked. Nothing crashed, It seemed to work.
