Note Palettes for Glyphs

These are plugins for the Glyphs font editor by Georg Seifert. With them, you can comfortably edit the font note of the current font, and the glyph note of the current glyph.

Font and glyph notes in the Palette sidebar.

The font note is now accessible through File > Font Info > Notes, which makes the Font Note plugin obsolete. I therefore do not recommend installing the Font Note plugin anymore.


  1. Install Glyph Note via Window > Plugin Manager
  2. Restart Glyphs.

To also install Font Note:

  1. Create an alias of FontNote.glyphsPalette in ~/Library/Application Support/Glyphs/Repositories/GlyphNote/
  2. Move the alias to ~/Library/Application Support/Glyphs/Plugins/


  1. To use the palettes, make sure the Palette sidebar shows: Window > Palette (Cmd-Opt-P).
  2. You can always edit the font note in the Font Note palette.
  3. To edit a glyph note, select one or more glyphs, and type in the Glyph Note palette.
  4. You can resize either note palette by dragging the bottom double line up or down.


Recent versions of Glyphs and macOS. I can only test and guarantee its functionality in the latest OS and app versions. If the plugin does not work for you, you may have to update your app or your system.
