Re: How can I get rid of ligatures in a font?

There's only one set of ligatures for the Latin script. Ligature6.png Ok, not sure why I didn't see those there, maybe it didn't appear exactly as I was expecting. I'm glad you took out the <-> and -- too. Oh, actually, I just figured out why I didn't see them. Long story short, I was looking at th...

Re: How can I get rid of ligatures in a font?

So I have deleted the offending glyph substitutions and exported a new version with an *.otf extension to distinguish it from the original. Thanks, it works! It was bothering me so much because in mIRC every message is preceded by a nick (i.e. a username) enclosed in <>'s, so if a nick ended in - i...

Re: How can I get rid of ligatures in a font?

Is there a way to turn off ligatures in whatever application you are using? The substitution is because the ligature feature in the font is being activated by whatever application. If you cannot control the application's ligature function then you will either need to edit the font as long as you ha...

How can I get rid of ligatures in a font?

I don't know if "ligatures" is the right word, but the issue is that I have a font that automatically replaces "..." with a Unicode ellipses character and "->" with a Unicode arrow character and maybe other substitutions. I don't want it to do that, I want it to display the original characters. How ...
