What is Glyphet Manager?

The Glyphet Manager or more properly the Glyphet Management Tool is part of the Adobe SING software architecture, a plug-in used, particularly for Adobe’s InDesign CS_J (the _J stands for Japanese). Adobe SING accommodates the use of Gaiji, or a character in Japanese, Korean, and Chinese typography; this is defined as a supplemental glyph that is represented in normal written work of these three East Asian alphabets, but may not be accurately represented in a font a customer is currently using. With Adobe SING technology and its Glyphet Management Tool, the software provides Glyphets or variant glyphs or symbols that represent Gaiji.

Glyphets are, essentially, small font files based off the Open Table font format, that have two components: the graphics for the ideograph, and the defining component which includes stroke count, pronunciation, Unicode properties, and so on; these two components are called collectively as Glyphet metadata. The Glyphet Management Tool of Adobe SING governs the Glyphets and their metadata, which extends the functionalities of Adobe InDesign.
