[CLOSED] Web font test page: Basic Arabic Features not working

Post by shibli313 » Sun Jun 03, 2018 10:53 pm

I'm working on an Arabic Font. I use Google Chrome Version 67.0.3396.62 (Official Build) (32-bit). Even basic features like Initial, Medial and Isolated forms are not generated. Only Final form is displayed.

Mod Edit: Split from Web Font Test Page

The way our font test page works is to test specific OpenType layout features. It has limitations, as web browsers won't use their default layout engine algorithm.

You can better test Arabic in FontCreator, Word, or a hand made web test page. We might be able to add a switch into the font web page which allows you to switch between default and custom features.
