Hi!!

In FL5, when I open a font and select to show the full character set as NAMES > IMPORTED. How can I save that and create a new font based on that character set and arrangement of gliphs?

thks in advance ;)

John,
Just that I didn't realize that a custom encoding could be saved and I was just "marking" the page so it would end up on my list of threads. "Hmmm" was as brilliant as I could come up with at the moment :-)

Then it’s only saving the encoding of the yellow glyphs. Is there a way to save the entire encoding, so including the new, grey glpyhs?

If you switch the Font Window to Glyph mode, you should be able to save the whole set as an encoding, but that presumes that the glyph order in the font corresponds to the imported character set. I think it should, but if not you might need to drag the glyphs around in glyph mode to get them in the order you want.

Thanks John.

It works, but I think you mean index mode.
Thanks again!

Yes. It used to be called Glyph mode in earlier versions of FontLab, and is stuck in my brain as that. This mode exposes the raw Glyph Index order of the font, i.e. the actual order in which the glyphs are stored, independent of encoding.
