Exporting all glyphs in FontLab Studio

(FLS 5.22 in Windows 10)
Suppose I'm working on a font but it's not at a point I can make a test export. If I try to run an OT or TT test, it won't compile because I'm in the middle of coding, I have classes with glyphs that don't exist yet and other problems. Is there a macro that will allow me export a graphic glyph dump so I can show my clients how a project is progressing? I usually take screenshots of the font window but I was wondering if there was a more elegant way to generate a graphic.


  • Why not adding dummy glyphs to the missing ones, and export as usual?

    Making sure a font is ready for compiling at all times is an option, yes.

    I think all you need to do is uncheck "Export OpenType layout tables" in Preferences and generate a font.

    That works; thanks!
  • Why not print a Glyph List from the Print menu and save as pdf?

    Perfect. That is exactly what I was looking for. How did I miss that?

    If you want to compile OT Layout features that are not covered by the glyph set, you could use OTM for subsetting the features.
