Description Pravin Satpute 2013-10-03 06:41:30 EDT
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $fntsample --font-file /usr/share/fonts/lohit-devanagari/Lohit-Devanagari.ttf -o out
2. $evince out

Actual results:
Glyphs with U+???? are not listed

Expected results:
It should be listed as a "private user area" or private glyphs.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 17:19:36 EST
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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.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.
Comment 5 Parag Nemade 2015-01-14 12:23:27 EST
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.
