is there a way to copy/paste several glyphs from one glyphs file to another? at the moment I am doing it one glyph at a time, but I have nagging doubts that there might be a more efficient (faster) way. I know I can import a master from another file, but that is not what I want to do. If I can find a faster way to do this, it will give me more time for making chutney and so forth. thank you.
Sure. Select multiple glyphs, copy, then paste (in the Font View). With Paste Special (Opt-Command-V), you can have finer control of what happens. See section 6.2.2 Copying Glyphs Between Files of the Glyphs 2.3 Handbook.
thank you. I have RTFM but I needed someone cleverer than me to point this out
