Add extra glyphs/ligatures without unicode code-point

Post by Priyesh »

Anyone guide me please how to add some extra glyphs (I think those would be without unicode code-points) for Devanagari ligatures, because it's next to impossible to script in devanagari without ligatures, and the script has so many ligatures.
Thanks in advance!

Under the menu 'Insert' -> 'Glyphs ...' then select how many to insert and where you want them (I usually put them after the last glyph).

They will be classified as 'Unused' unless they are used by an Open Type feature like a ligature substitution. Unused glyphs are not accessible in applications and aren't exported to the output font. So either put them in an Open Type feature like a ligature substitution or give them code points in one of the Private Use Areas (PUA).
