Renaming glyphs ↩
It is possible to change the name of an existing glyph from the Inspector > Glyph section.
If the string in the text field is changed, a sheet appears to assist with renaming the glyph. If you need it, RoboFont can take care of renaming references in groups, kerning and components. In addition, RoboFont can assign a new unicode based on the new name and rename the related layers.
You can access the same functionality using the using the
myFont = CurrentFont() myFont.renameGlyph(oldName='oldName', newName='newName', renameComponents=True, renameGroups=True, renameKerning=True)
Consider that renaming a glyph from the user interface or with a script will not update references in the OpenType features stored in the UFO.
