I am trying to generate a self-created True Type font.
When validating, I’m getting a bunch of characters with:
There is another glyph in the font with this unicode code point.
This happens after hinting, removing overlaps, correcting directions... It’s the only thing that comes up when validating the font, everything else seems to be fine. Same when I directly generate the TTF.
Unfortunately the validation messages don’t have any details to them other than the name of character with the respective issue as quoted. By clicking on that list item it opens the respective problem character (for example LATIN CAPITAL LETTER E) in order to solve the issue but I don't see any reference as to where the other duplicate character sits and I don’t understand what exactly I’m supposed to do. Am I supposed to just erase that character and hope I killed the right one of the two?
I tried to detach the respective characters. Tried to restart XQuartz and FontForge. But problems/messages persist.
I created the font from scratch. I use my own all Western European Character set (incl. all accents and some ligatures).
