Merge 2 Different Fonts (import glyph range from one font to another)
Some time you love one font, but it missing some glyph which required to work with an application, or multi language environment.

As a limited starting point, being able to start from some "canned" freely reusable fonts would be great. This gives you a fallback starting point for the glyphs you don't care about re-designing. (I tried opening up the Fira Medium OTF and the import borked, otherwise that probably would have worked just as well.)
Right not this is just an idea for a feature. Currently this action of combining fonts is not possible in Glyphr Studio.

But selecting to import one font automatically activates the edit process.
How can one select two font files simultaneously and choose glyphs selectively?
It would be great if you could replace the uppercase version of one font with another one for legability.
Yes, this is a great idea! All the mechanisms for importing glyphs (either all or partial range) are in place... Maybe just drag-and-drop the 2nd font file onto the canvas, and prompt the user which glyphs to import / merge?
What would you expect to happen if the 1st font already had a glyph design, and the user chose to import another glyph from the 2nd font on top of it? Add the shapes from the 2nd over the 1st? Delete the 1st? Don't import the 2nd?
