Summary0000169: Copy all information about a glyph (image, kerning pairs, spacing, ligatures) and apply it to another glyph.
DescriptionIt would be hugely convenient in the Overview tab to be able to copy all of the information about a glyph, not just the glyph image itself, in a certain letter/symbol place and paste it to another letter/symbol place (in which the kerning, spacing, and ligatures are duplicated but with all of the references to the original letter/symbol place are replaced by whatever letter/symbol place you pasted it to). I am currently limited by having to redo everything any time I wish to move a glyph to a new position (for example, from upper-case to lower-case).

It would also be nice if this could somehow be done between different birdfont files by importing the .birdfont file or the font itself (and ask which glyphs you'd like to replace if there's a conflict). I don't know, I have no idea what's too complex to be able to do, it's pretty great what you've already done.

This sounds good but I need think a bit more on how it should be implemented.

You might want to create a spacing class from your source letter to the destination and get all kerning data duplicated that way. It works only in a single file. I am still thinking considering ways to solve the problem.
