Purging unused Feature and Lookup names

Post by stormag » Sun Jul 07, 2019 8:45 pm

Is there any automatized option (button) for cleaning the project from old feature/lookup names, that are removed from the script tree, but apparently still present in the script or embedded somewhere in the project?

I.e. I've recently deleted the "Alternate1" lookup and the wrong feature, where it was mistakenly dumped into. I want to create lookup with the same name ("Alternate1"), within the newly created, appropriate feature, but my FC11.5 keeps saying Please provide a unique name.

While it might not be the most serious problem in the universe, help will by greatly appreciated ;).

Use the brush tool in the OpenType Designer

I would seriously consider upgrading to the latest version, as it contains numerous bug fixes related to OpenType layout features, and many improvements you'll really like.

I'm (almost) sure the issue you mention is also solved within FontCreator 12.
