Glyph Browser search facility


Recommended Posts

Thank you for the latest beta version.

I still cannot get the search facility of the glyph browser to work.

Could someone possibly provide step by step instructions of exactly, precisely how to search for U+00b0 and then get the character into the document please?

To me, the documentation is not clear.

  • Search—Enter a Glyph value, a Unicode value or a text phrase to locate a Glyph or Unicode character. For example, "G+0131", "U+00b0" or the phrase "degree" will all show the degree symbol, respectively.

I am using the Arial font at 24 point in an ordinary text frame.

Searching is pretty much like the Help said: Put U+00b0 into the search field, and the browser shows that character:

Then, to get the character into the document, just double-click it and it's inserted at the cursor in the active text frame.

What part doesn't work? The search or the insertion into the text frame?

Can you provide a screenshot?

The search. I enter U+00b0 into the search box, as in your screenshot, except that mine is in the alternative colour scheme, but no selected glyph is indicated. I had wondered if I needed to click something to start the search, but from your post it appears not.

Here is a part of a screenshot.

It is actually highlighted, William, but it’s extremely low contrast!

So it is.

Thank you.

Hopefully something will be done to change that.

 

I suggest reporting it as a bug, if it hasn't been already.

I have just added a bug report in the section for the Windows version.

Yet I was unable to copy and paste a link to this thread.

If there is anyone reading this who knows how to do that, then posting the link as a 'reply' to my bug report would be helpful please.

Hi @William Overington,

hover the mouse over a forum post and look at the top right corner of it. There you see the text 'Report post' followed by a small icon with three dots and lines between them:

If you click on this icon a pop up window opens with a link to this very post. You can copy it and paste it to another post elsewhere in the forum.
