- Creating list-based Smart Sets
- Creating Query-based Smart Sets
The Font Overview window includes a collapsible Smart Sets panel, which can be toggled with one of the Views icons in the Toolbar.
A Smart Set is a list of saved Search & Find queries. Smart Sets can be grouped with Smart Groups.
There are two kinds of Smart Sets:
- Query-based Smart Sets
- Dynamic Smart Sets defined by a query. Identified by a little gear icon.
- List-based Smart Sets
- Static Smart Sets defined by a list of glyph names.

Creating list-based Smart Sets
To create a new list-based Smart Set, choose ‘Create new set from glyph names’ from the options menu (bottom left of the panel). This will open a sheet with input fields for Set Name and for a space-separated list of glyph names.
Press OK to create the Smart Set.
Adding missing glyphs
Each list-based Smart Set displays a counter with the total amount of glyphs in the set. If available, a second counter (in parentheses) shows how many glyphs in the set are missing from the font.
To create missing glyphs in a Smart Set, right-click the Smart Set to open the list of missing glyph names, and double-click a glyph name to create the glyph.
Creating Query-based Smart Sets
Query-based Smart Sets are defined by one or more search queries. The glyph names in these sets are the result of the query applied to the current font.
The Search & Find panel can be toggled with one of the Views icons in the Toolbar, or with the keyboard shortcut ⌘ + F.
