Hello..

Because of too long names of some glyphs that belong to scripts like:
(Urdu, Pashto, Sindhi, Kurdish, Persian...etc), Glyph name disappear inside Automatic Metrics Wizard, so the designer face a difficult to identify which type of forms are (init, medi, fina...etc), I suggest to add controls to this window like:(maximize or minimize) to be more fixable.

Thank you

If it is not hard to make the dialog resizable, this is surely worth doing.

The dialog with the image has been around for many versions. If it is easier to remove the image to make space, that serves no useful purpose here. It is just eye-candy.

Would it be more convenient to remove the left list box, and add glyphs through a window similar to the "select class members" window?

Here is an update with the new "select class members" window.

It also comes with a new "Save UFO As...", which has not been tested, but seems to work okay.
