Glyph Browser could be better for stylistic alternates


Recommended Posts

The Glyph Browser even at its largest setting is too small for Dreamscript (see attached screen shot).

It is very difficult to see the stylistic alternates. Try to distinguish f and l, or m and n. Quark has a nice option that shows just the stylistic alternates of the selected character and a slider function for size in the glyph browser.

But does not change the fact that with the illustrated script font (Dreamscript), it is very hard to see what is what.

Click on the little hamburger menu at the top right of the glyph panel and select the size you want for optimal readability .

Thanks. It is not the window size, but the size of the individual characters that are difficult to discern. 

Are you sure you have the Glyph Browser set to "Largest Size"? I don't have your font to test with, but here's Arial at Largest Size.

Here it is at smallest:

I installed the Dreamscript font and it's exceptionally dainty (if that's the right word for it), indeed making it rather difficult to discern the individual glyphs. Another script font, such as Bonbon, is more robust, even the light version. Anyway, I agree that it would be nice to up the glyph size more that is possible at present.

Thanks, @haakoo.

Yes, that is hard to use. Even at Largest Size.

It's unreadable in the Light UI, and barely acceptable in the Dark UI if the Gamma is set all the way down.
