The hint bubble, could also display the UNICODE NAME of the glyph.
For example 0x273F is also known as "BLACK FLORETTE"
AMOF all glyphs have a name. It might be possible to store it localy, or to retrieve it on some online database...

see

Usefull particularly for totally blank glyphs (SOFT HYPHEN, NON BREAKING THIN SPACE, ...)

Could you please correct the title of this bug :
the hint bubble in the favorite glyphs palette should also display *the UNICODE NAME of the glyph and* the name of the font

This is all the more possible since the 2nd button (magnifying glass) displays the name of the glyph (so scribus knows them).

It's all the more important for spaces.

BTW It should also display the name of the font.

the request is good...

but i would not implement it as a tooltip.

one of both:

- show the information below each glyph (probably the best way to do it).
- add a separate area where you add the information about the current item.

ale, if you could provide the structure template for how to add text below each glyph and a separate area to add the info for the current item...then it's just a question of compiling that info for each glyph. So most of legwork of this patch would be researching and data-entry for each glyph.
