gbdfed gets out of sync

Bug #172836 reported by don knuth on 2007-11-29
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gbdfed (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gbdfed

To tweak this minor bug, do the following:
Double click on the character a in the font grid
Double click on the character A in the font grid
Click in the window for a
Type control-N
The a has changed to b, but the highlighted character in the grid is B
Click in the window for A and type control-N
The A has changed to B, but the highlighted character in the grid is now C

I'm not sure what version of gbdfed I have; apt-get downloaded it automatically
for me in mid-November 2007. There is no --version option on the command line.
When I ask for help, the title line says GBDFEdition 1.2; but when I save a
font the comment is "edited with gbfed 1.1".

I think gbdfed is a great tool, thanks!
The user manual (help) is also very helpful ... but I noticed a few glitches there:
(1) In the explanation of the font grid, after "emboldening", the subhead for the
Windows menu is formatted improperly (as if it were part of the definition
of emboldening). (2) Say its instead of it's, for the possessive case of it.
(3) I would also say Font Grids, not Font Grid's, for the plural of Font Grid.
