So this is puzzling me. In between all the talk of character sets and language support, I decided to endeavour into some new-to-me Unicode values. I thought it prudent to hand-assign sensible glyph names to corresponding Unicode values – so I have gravecomb, acutecomb, dieresiscomb. However, when I use these glyph names as my glyph template, a lot of Unicode values show up empty (in RoboFont at least).
Now I’m left wondering: how do I keep glyph names that I understand, without having to manually enter all Unicode values?
For comparison, I went into the Adobe Source Sans source. The glyphs have sensible names there, but, for example, hookabovecomb resolves in RoboFont to 0309, but hoicmb, the Adobe name, throws empty. What am I missing? Is there hidden knowledge in the software?
