Glyph Builder Auto Unicodes issue with uniXXXX names
When I run the following Glyph Builder (“Auto Unicode” checkbox checked) the resulting glyph uniE003 has no unicode value:
uniE003 = x & y & z
glyph.autoUnicodes()uses the AGL (or GNUFL) to get the unicode value for a given glyph name. but this is a PUA codepoint, so it is not included there…
it works if you assign the unicode value explicitly:
uniE003 = x & y & z | E003
Hi @gferreira ,
May I knit pick a bit? :) If I add a glyph named
uniE003via Font > Add Glyphs the unicode of
E003is added automatically. My understanding was that unicode values are added by
autoUnicodes()using the same logic. Thus, a unicode value is added if
- the glyphname is present in AGL/GNUFL
- the glyphname is
uXXXXX(wether PUA or not)
Would it not make sense to drop the differentiation between pua and non-pua glyphs. Users don’t always know by heart if a particular value belongs to one range or another ;)
hi @martin, I wasn’t aware that the Add Glyphs sheet can handle such names automatically, thanks for pointing that out.
autoUnicodes()does currently not handle
uXXXXXnames automatically. I agree it would be nicer to add it there (so it’s also available when scripting) instead of re-implementing it in Glyph Construction.
I’ve created an issue for it — thanks!
Thank you, much appreciated
fixed inside RoboFont: will be implemented in the next release!!!
