[FIXED] Dual Mapped Glyphs Appear Twice in Search Results

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala » Sun Jul 19, 2020 9:55 am

This could be a feature, but it appears to be more of a bug. If one opens a glyph edit window and tries to scroll to the next search result, one cannot. Shortcuts and toolbar buttons do nothing.

I am not able to reproduce the issue. Can you please send the font project?

Dual-mapped glyphs still appear twice in built 2679, but when scrolling through glyphs in search results only one copy shows up.

Showing dual-mapped glyphs twice makes it easy to remove either code-point by selecting the first or second glyphs, depending on which code-point you wish to remove.

I was unclear about the fix, but yes you can now go to previous and next glyph.

It is deliberately shown twice as it shows all characters in this search result.
