UFO not saving all changes

  • I've been having an issue where after saving the UFO only some of the changes are kept. Occasionally I've been able to salvage the changes glyphs from auto saved files but it's really frustrating and hard to keep track of. I'm on 3.2b.

    hello Dave,

    this issue has been reported by other users, I know @frederik has been looking into it. but it’s hard to reproduce.

    does it happen always, with all fonts? or is it a problem with one font only?


  • @gferreira Thanks for looking into it. And yes, it's hard to reproduce as there seems to be few patterns and can happen with any font.

  • I don't know if this is the same issue or even related but I thought I'd post it in case. I don't get anything like this when I commonly try to save a file and the changes don't get saved, but I noticed this when opening an old file recently. My output window was full of these errors:

    Could not save glyph 'nacute.pl' in layer 'background'
    Traceback (most recent call last):

    During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

    KeyError: 'nacute.pl'

  • One other thing that might be worth investigating is whether toggling auto saving in preferences reduces the amount it happens (I think it has for me)
