Unable to switch to type ramp view after opening a woff font file

See original GitHub issue

I opened a woff file by double clicking on it, and then clicked on the “switch to type ramp view” button. However, instead of the usual screen with a slider, an error message popped up. I have attached the woff file so that you may test/debug with it. (It’s one of Google’s free fonts, “Lora Regular”, converted from *.ttf)

The parameter is incorrect.

Thanks! In the fix description, does “remove entries not supported by external files” mean that some features (such as Type Ramp, including variable font axes) will not be visible for font files that are not installed? If so, would there instead be a way to access the relevant data to display such features without having to install the font (in the same way that characters and OpenType variations are already viewable without having to install)?

Fwiw, finally got around to fixing this, probably won’t push the branch for another week or so but the fix is coming! Apologies for taking so long with it
