I’m designing my new font from Affinity Designer, and exports ESP files to FontLab on my Mac’s at the moment, but very often when I try the font in different designs, I often use the iPad Pro.. so a glyph browser in the iPad version is very high on my wish list! :-) 

I have already a lot of glyph’s for this display font, so without it it makes is very hard. 

Hope that will be added soon! :-) 

Today I started a new design with this font on my Mac, and wanted to continue on the iPad when I left the house.. but when open it on the iPad, all the glyph was gone, and the design was kinda messed up.

Another vote for this. Using typefaces with multiple character variations, swash characters or even typefaces that are only symbols is really hard on the iPad currently.

The "Typography / OpenType" menu is kinda working for alternates, but we really need a full glyph browser for every character in the set. I would also love to see an option to size the grid so that the full characters can be properly viewed even when they stretch "out of bounds".

What’s the workaround for accessing glyphs in iPad?
