Choose Show cutting edge versions to download beta versions of Glyphs. Beta versions are released frequently, providing bug fixes and early feature releases. Because of their frequency, beta versions are not as thoroughly tested as release versions. Therefore, we recommend working with copies of font files when trying a Glyphs beta. Revert to the latest stable version of Glyphs by re-downloading it from glyphsapp.com/buy. Downloading a new version or reverting to an old version of Glyphs will not reset the settings.
