Re: How to reposition character before sequence of letters?

Here is some more complex code that should do it, but unfortunately it isn't working within the OpenType Designer preview. It uses (the undocumented :oops: ) class0 which is a special class that contains all glyphs except the ones used within the context. script latn { feature ContextualAlternates; ...

Re: How to reposition character before sequence of letters?

Given that your software supports OpenType layout features, this might work: script latn { feature ContextualAlternates; } feature ContextualAlternates calt { lookup ChainingContextReposition; } lookup ChainingContextReposition { context (A B C) asciicircum E F G bar; sub 0 MultipleSubstitutionCopy;...

Re: How to reposition character before sequence of letters?

It looks like something that isn't meant to happen, but if it can be done with OpenType layout feature code, then I'm sure it can be done with FontCreator.

Why would you like to reorder?

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

Re: Colored parts arent showing up.

There are 3 color font formats. Do ask them if they support them all. FontCreator supports the Microsoft color font format.

You could look into fonts that do work as expected to see what settings they use.

Re: Added Number Forms to Range but does not show up in Mac but does in Windows

To be sure, you used Insert Characters to add this range: $2160-$2169 Then you used Complete Composites to generate the outlines?

Re: Generate Font

FontCreator adds it if the font is exported with OpenType layout features, as some word processing software (Microsoft Word) requires it.

Maybe you can do without the OpenType features. Why do you want to exclude DSIG?
