init, fina features don't work

Post by theotheo » Sat Sep 01, 2018 11:31 pm

Hi,
I've got a problem on the init, fina, isol features. I have set those features as GSUB in opentype designer and they were shown correctly in the Opentype designer testing panel. However, they were not shown in test font or in Word after I installed it.
Why does this happen? Did I miss something?

Those features are not supported by Latin based scripts. What are you trying to achieve?

1- the init, fina, isol features are assigned for Arabic or Syriac scripts.
2- You should choose the appropriate glyphs for each feature.
3-You should process each feature logically (according to the language demands).
