Red rectangle below glyphs in Fontlab

I am working on a typeface and I notice these small red rectangles below several glyphs in FontLab.

Can anyone tell me what this indicates? See attached image below.

It means someone else has already designed a glyph just like yours.


Actually, it means that the glyph is the key glyph in a kerning class.

(RTFM, by the way. Took me only ten seconds to find the answer by looking there.)

RTFM indeed. Thanks, Mark.
