The Font Collection can search and find glyphs and save the search query.
Users can toggle the Search and Find bar in the toolbar of the Font Collection window in multi-window mode, or at the bottom of the window in single window mode, or use ⌘ + F.
By clicking the ‘+’ in the top right of the font collection an advanced Search and Find will reveal.
Users can build queries based on glyph data you see by the collections view in Glyph List mode.

|right sidebearing||glyph right sidebearing|

|anchors||amount of anchors|
|anchor names||a comma seperated list of all anchor names|
