Set placeholder character for glyph?

Is it possible to set the placeholder character for a glyph? For instance when making non-latin unicodes?
as far as I know, there’s only the global setting in Preferences > Character Set > Template glyphs preview font.
but it’s possible to set this preference using a script, so you can at least switch between two or more template fonts quickly:
from mojo.UI import getDefault, setDefault key = 'templateGlyphFontName' print(getDefault(key)) setDefault(key, 'RoboType-Mono') print(getDefault(key))

Thanks Gustavo! Perhaps a fallback scheme might be useful? If a unicode is not available in the first, check the second, etc.
mmm, see Character Set Preferences
There is a default font and a fallback when there is no unicode. I guess its up to the user to pick a font that contains the glyph.unicode, if a unicode is not in the selected font, the system fallback font is used to draw the template glyph.
