Field to enter particular glyph into Test Font box

It would be nice to have a little field in which you could enter the index number of a glyph (or some unicode number) to have it inserted into the Test Font box. This way you don't have to hunt it down in order to have it inserted.


God bless!

Press shortcut "P" to display up to 256 selected glyphs (IIRC) in the Preview Toolbar. Cut and paste from there to get them into the Font Test Window (or into the Comparison Toolbar).

Thanks for answering, Mr. Pesala. I posted in this forum to request for an input box to do this so that one doesn't have to search through the 256 glyphs for what you are looking for. I apprecieate the shortcut however!
