On Mac, when you edit the design of a font and want to reflect the change in an app (i.e. display glyphs in an updated design instead of old one), you'll usually have to restart the app. Is there a way to quickly get the change reflected in all apps without restarting? I'm currently editing a font frequently and restarting apps every time is a pain.
One thing I noticed is that when I edit a font, and type the updated glyphs first time in hours, apps do reflect the change and display the glyphs in a new design instead of an old one without restarting. So I suspected that commands like
killall -KILL SystemUIServer, and
killall -KILL Dock might be relevant (I run those commands a couple times a day) so I tested but they didn't work.
I also tried
sudo atsutil databases -remove atsutil server -shutdown atsutil server -ping
but it didn't have any effect either.
