I am currently working on an Arabic font. Its glyphs number has reached to several hundereds and still a very large work is ahead.
Till yet the glyphs in my font are in a very very irregularl manner. I make Glyphs in FontLab and add OT Tables through MS Volt. I want to regularly arrange my glyphs in the font but it will take a very long time to make a new Fontlab file and copy all glyphs one by one and then enter the name for every glyph and its Unicode Value.
Is there a way to move glyph in a fontlab file from one place to another position (one by one) in such a way that glyph's name and unicode values also move along with it to the new position. I have tried in Fontlab (1) by dragging and (2) also by cut and paste but the glyphs name and Unicode Values are affected. What will be the easiest way for this job in Fontlab.
Please also recommend any other software if that software has easier way.
