How to make a vertical font

Post by Ahzoh » Sat Jul 13, 2019 7:14 pm

So I'm making a vertical writing system for my conlang but I'm not sure how to format the font so that it makes the letters vertical like Mongolian.

See Font Properties, Metrics.

I suspect that your glyphs will also need to be in a character set used by Vertical fonts.

I was hoping that I would not have to assign the glyphs to Mongolian codepoints to make it vertical.
