[CLOSED] Override Range by Glyph Names Inconsistency

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala »

  1. I selected all composite glyphs that use anchor-based positioning
  2. I tagged them as ToDo and copied them to the clipboard
  3. I switched to another style of the same font and ran the glyph transform script to Override Range by Glyph Names, pasting the 649 glyph names into the dialog
  4. I ran the script on another style aiming to tag the same fonts there
Of the 649 glyph names, only 635 were selected by the glyph transform script. I tracked this down to name conflicts in glyphlist.dat.

I have appended the problematic glyph names in the code below, e.g.
Odoubleacute (Ohungarumlaut) and Rcedilla (Rcommaaccent) are not selected by the Transform script.

Code: Select all

Then I assume the font contains 635 matching glyph names. If not, then this might be a bug.

I think it is a bug, or there is an error in glyphlist.dat or something similar.

My copy in AppData matches the file in C:\Program Files\

My glyphs are correctly named as Gcedilla - Rcedilla, and Odoubleacute, udoubleacute, etc., but the transform script is not selecting them.

I am not able to reproduce the issue. I also don't think glyphlist.dat is used here.

Can you please send the project files and some instruction, so I can try it here?

I have just received the file and tested it. Here it selects all of the expected glyphs, so I don't know why it fails on your side.

The problem was at my end. The glyph names in the transform dialog were only 635, so that list got changed at some stage after I copied it to the forum. The count now gives 649 and 649 glyphs are selected.

You can close this one now.

No problem. I am glad I don’t have to look into all the glyph names 8)
