We have implemented the requested OpenType Explorer feature. We still need to polish it, and the items are not clickable yet.

FontCreator 13.0.0.2652 (64-bit)

Let us know your results.

It all works just fine here, so I suspect it is an issue on your end of the line.

yes it is
some important notes
this will be add in right click on glyph to explore glyph usage in OTD
when you click on lookup in explorer, should open the selected lookup in otd
in explorer with clt+clik jump to lookup
in explorer with alt+clik jump to glyph in glyph windows
when jump to lookup should open the required glyph in lookup

We think this works good enough for now. If more people request enhancements here, we will consider them.

As you wish but right click option is very important without this this feature not complete because a user want to know a about a glyph usage so he can easily access it with right click and see the usage
But without this he must go to otd and then type in explorer for his required so this process is long

The font overview window and the OpenType Designer dialog are two different things as undo/redo depend on it.

Maybe it is worth adding a right-click context menu item to the glyph overview window, but we first want more feedback.
