[FIXED] Insert Glyphs by Range Fails

FontCreator 13 Help wrote:FontCreator allows you to add ranges of glyph names, supporting a-z but also uni0391.pcap-uni03A9.pcap. If a glyph name matches a Unicode character, that character will be inserted.
I tried inserting some glyphs by range, but when I click the validate button the error message says that all glyphs exist and my input is erased. These glyphs do not exist in the font.

I tried with some that do exist:

The error message, as expected, says that the glyphs already exist, but the text is not erased.

It should not have removed the lines, but the input is not correct, as only this syntax is supported:

By a single letter from A-Z, either uppercase or lowercase. For example:
[A.swash - Z.swash]
[a - z]

By up to 3 decimal digits in a contiguous run. For example:
[ampersand.01 - ampersand.58]

There were still some issues, which should be solved with the next upcoming release. We will also further improve the user manual.
