With FontAwesome font files and the like, it's impractical to make quick use of their icons/glyphs without a palette, as the entire character set does not use qwerty, but are special/hidden characters.
I can live without granular type tools like kerning, but not having accessibility to the glyphs of a given font file is a dearly missed feature from working in Photoshop or Illustrator. At least on OS X, the OS character viewer is not as friendly as Adobe's other implementations of the glyphs palette.
Thanks for your hard work.

For me, there are two very important features (included in Adobe illustrator) that are preventing me from using this application:
1. Being able to use a dedicated font folder (no need to load a font as a system resource)
2. Being able to to select and use Unicode glyphs (Private Use Area) so I can continue to create and use icon fonts.
Yes, a glyphs panel would be great.

Glyphs panel please!
Must have. Thanks for suggesting!
Definitely agree. Trying out the program and don't have access to FontAwesome svgs for some reason. Spent a lot of time trying to figure out where the glyphs panel was only to find there is none.

I whole heartedly agree with a glyphs palette!

Glyphs Panel is very useful for icon fonts and for type in general, thank you.

Like CorelDRAW, if there would be a Glyphs panel which will let us to see each glyph in a font and bring into canvas as editable vector, it would make easier to see and use iconfonts in our designs.
