Re: Need help with contextual substitution for my font

Oh, my glyphs are not assigned to the Arabic codepoints but on Latin codepoints (I plan on switching them to the Private Use codeblock), which the .init, .medi., and .fina do not work with.

Need help with contextual substitution for my font

I've tried reading some guides on here but I can't really wrap my head around these open type features. And I can't really extrapolate what little I could figure out to my own font since they all deal with the Latin script cursive. Could somebody show me how to make it so that an input letter switch...

What is pausal? Is it "before punctuation that indicates a pause" such as comma, stop etc?

Creating a Syllabary

Have there been any new ways to make the program make the font behave in a way that you type one letter and then another and it produces a single glyph? This is for a conscript of mine.
I saw this topic mentioned on this forum, but that was 7 years ago, so things might have changed.
