× ATF support in Font test window

Post by shibli313 » Thu May 31, 2018 10:58 pm

It would be really easy to test advanced typography features like Stylistic sets, discretionary ligatures, justification alternates etc. right in the font testing window.

The font test window uses a Windows control that does not support OpenType features.

What you can do is:
  1. Use the Web Font Test
  2. Leave the font test window open, and select the test font in your target application to see how well the features are supported in it

Or you can Test font using F5 (or Font -> Test TTF/OTF) and it will automatically install a temporary font in your computer.
just open up a design software (illustrator, photoshop, even word) and test the font there with the OpenType features you want. :D
