Description Caius Chance 2008-12-09 01:42:44 UTC
Description of problem:
When I change the glyph point on a certain glyph, fontforge pops up a window of message like "all the glyphs which refer to this glyph will be changed".

After that, there are some characters on the main window (the one with grid of glphs) have highlighted in blue color. Such highlights means empty instructions on such glyphs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
- prepare f10
- login to desktop env
- ensure latest fontforge is installed
- start fontforge w/ http://fedorapeople.org/~cchance/packages/liberation-fonts/LiberationMono-BoldItalic.sfd loaded
- pick a glyph and change some glyph points on it
- check results

Actual results:
Changes only are applied to the glyph edited.

Expected results:
Some blue highlights on main window (with grid of all glpyhs), which means empty hinting instructions on such glyphs.

Additional info:
Copied this bug to upstream mailing list.

It's sounding like upstream is saying this is not a bug, as changing one glyph may change others hinting instructions. 

Do you want to keep this open and consult more with upstream? 
Or shall we close it?
