Hi everyone, a while back I wanted to create a font so I could use my self-invented script on a computer as well.
So far I have been using FontForge because it's free but a couple months back I ran into some problems with ligatures.
After following the instructions from design with FontForge and some other tutorials I have found online I got them working inside of FontForge. So when I type the components of a ligature in the metrics window, they get replaced by the proper ligature. But the problem is that I'm unable to get the ligatures working in LibreOffice after exporting the font as an OpenType font. So my first idea was to check if LibreOffice actually supports OpenType. I then installed the latest version that can definitely use OpenType features. After that I tested my font again, but still my ligatures weren't used. Has somebody got an idea what could be wrong?
Something not closely related:
I read that a new font design software called TruFont is in development. Would switching solve the problem with ligatures? Also, would switching be beneficial in general?
Thank you for your answers in advance.
