Transform Wizard: Insert Glyphs After Selected

Post by Hafonton » Sat Feb 02, 2019 10:07 pm

I'd like to add these glyphs:
splash.1, splash.2, splash.3, splash.4
and so on after a selected glyph.

Right now I have to manually open glyph-by-glyph and set the names up.

Using the "Insert Glyphs" in the Transform Wizard, it adds the glyphs last, and not having the option on where to add it. (I want it after specific glyph)

Just like the "Insert -> Glyphs" options that have "After each selected glyph".

Can you add this to the transform wizard please?

A useful enhancement.

The feature "Override Range by Glyph Name(s)" selects glyphs g, h OK, but unfortunately, they don't stay selected when the Insert Glyphs command is executed. The new glyphs are still added at the end of the font.

I also noticed that an old bug is not fixed yet in build 2430. If the comma is missing after the last glyph name, the name is truncated, so one gets instead of g.alt (if one remembers to add the comma).
