Hey everyone. I’m a graphic designer working in the marketing field. One of my current passion projects is designing an industrial sans-serif typeface. I’ve spent the last few months learning Fontforge in my free time so I can implement this project but I’ve hit a stumbling block.
Adobe CC has a feature with .otf files that displays a small menu of alternate characters when the user hovers over a highlighted character in a text box.
See the image linked below for an example of this : https://imgur.com/a/T63Og
My typeface has a number of alternate characters and I cannot figure out how to get this alternate character menu to show up when I use it in Adobe CC. I’ve tried tinkering with Alternate Subs and everything else under the Glyph Info menu. I’ve read through the info on Github and I still can’t figure it out. I’m new to using Fontforge and still learning about how a font-file actually functions so I’m sure there is a simple way to do this and I’m just missing it.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
