It includes the Rename glyphs by scheme [TTG] macro that
allows you to rename all glyphs in your font using a glyph renaming
scheme. Six renaming schemes contributed by Tiro Typeworks
have been included. It also includes supplementary glyph
naming and encoding files prepared by Adam Twardoch and Tiro Typeworks
that were previously posted on this forum. You can select
the encoding files in the encoding combo box in FontLab’s font window.
You can also use the encodings to sort glyphs. There are also have supplementary
codepage files available. Finally, you can use the glyph naming files
with the Generate Names and Generate Unicode options.
