Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1015030
RFE: Does not create samples for glyphs with U+???? encoding
Last modified: 2015-01-14 12:23:27 EST
Description of problem:
I superliked this program.
Tried this with Lohit-Devanagari ttf, but it does not list all my U+???? glyphs. Basically glyphs with -1 encoding.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $fntsample --font-file /usr/share/fonts/lohit-devanagari/Lohit-Devanagari.ttf -o out
2. $evince out
Glyphs with U+???? are not listed
It should be listed as a "private user area" or private glyphs.
Please provide screenshot of the problem you saw in generated pdf file

This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
It is good to have feature for fntsample. Marking as RFE.
fntsample shows only glyphs which have Unicode code points and not extra glyphs given in the font. See the description given on upstream page
"FntSample is a tool that can be used to make font samples that show coverage of the font and are similar in appearance to Unicode Charts."
So the output in pdf is similar to Unicode charts.
