Validation Results

Postby PJMiller » Sat Feb 27, 2016 12:39 pm

If one selects 'Used by ...' from the context menu of a glyph then selects one of the characters displayed then a new item appears in the list to the left of the screen entitled 'Search "#nnn" ' with the selected glyph.

When one validates a font it comes up with a list of glyphs which still have problems at the end of the process. It would be nice if a similar item in the list on the left hand side of the screen were to appear. This item could be populated with the list of glyphs which still have problems.

Yes I have seen the earlier thread but selecting the glyphs as search results in the left hand pane of the program window would be an alternative to making the validation report non-modal and might be considered by some to be more useful.

One could select the problem glyph from the search results whilst the validation window (F7) was open, the real time validation window would display what it thought the problem was.

That way you don't have to write down the results or export them to a text file.

This has been implemented in FontCreator 10.

After running the Font Validation wizard, those glyphs that still have validation errors can be filtered by using the Validation Issues item in the Trouble-shooting area of the Glyph Overview panel. As the glyphs are fixed, they will disappear from the filtered list.
