Re: Support for Contextual Positioning

Any chance we could get support for saving Contextual Positioning tables?

I am working on a text processing client and need to make sure I handle all OpenType tables properly.

Yes, that is also supported.

All OpenType Features Are Supported

It seems to be supported. Chained Context Positioning
Chained Context Positioning is OpenType GPOS LookupType 8: Chaining Contextual Positioning Subtable whereas Contextual Positioning is OpenType GPOS Lookup Type 7: Contextual Positioning Subtables.

Is there a way for users to pick an alternative format like ChainContextSubstFormat1 or ChainContextSubstFormat2 (that is provided it is possible)? Does Font Creator support data con...
