Hi all –
I was wondering if anyone had come up with a particularly clever way of checking to see if your glyphs are correctly encoded. Folks like me who occasionally have to perform some brain surgery on fonts with MANY glyphs might slip up and mis-encode a glyph in a script they can't read. Has anyone come up with a useful technique to double-check that the glyph you have encoded as 0x52E5 actually is 0x52E5? Currently, I am pasting a good known source into the mask of my font and then going through one at a time, so it certainly would be amazing if there was a way to do so automagically...
It gets a lot harder for writing systems that require many unencoded glyphs. I still haven't figured that one out.
I only have the freebie OTMaster, but it's still a good pick for this. Is the software worth buying? It doesn't look like it'd save my butt too much, but maybe I've just gotten lucky so far.
Thanks for the tips!
The free version has helped me enough time that I went ahead and bought the full version. I don’t do production with OTMaster, but it’s great for poking around in OT tables so I can find out if a problem is in a compiled font or a software bug.
