Select glyphs after running a Transform script?

Post by Erwin Denissen » Sat Jun 25, 2016 2:40 pm

Would it be a good idea to show the selection in the font overview on completing a script?

So if you run a script with "All" as range, then all glyphs will be selected on completing a script.

However if you include a override range as last step, which only contains 2 glyphs, then on completing the script only those two glyphs will be selected.

Or would it be better to not change the glyph selection; which is how it works right now?

Or is it an idea to combine all processed glyphs during a script, and then select those all?

I was expecting that Override Range would select the glyphs, then perform whatever other transformation was defined, leaving them selected afterwards.

If another Override Range feature followed, I would expect it to select that new range, and drop the previous range.

There might also be a good case for leaving it as it is, but I cannot think of one at the moment.

That seems to work as expected now.
