Insert glyph transform cuts off last character in glyph name list

Post by nabsltd » Sun Jul 29, 2018 6:29 am

In FontCreator 11.5.0.2427, 64-bit:

I discovered this when using the built-in "Unmapped Proportional Figures" transform script, which didn't complete all the composites correctly because the last glyph was named "nine.pnu" instead of "nine.pnum".

The problem happens regardless of the number of glyphs. A simple workaround is to place a comma after the last glyph name.

This bug will be fixed with the next upcoming release. We will then also stop sorting the list, so the glyphs will be added in the original order.

In case you missed it; right now it is already possible to use a shorter notation:
zero.pnum - nine.pnum
