Opentype-Features for Bohemian Sketch

Hey guys,

Did some of you guys find a way to place any glyph of a font into Bohemian Sketch?
It drives me crazy not to be able to replace old-style numbers by tabular numbers.
Any ideas?

    Apparently not. But, as a workaround, you can copy the text in Sketch, paste it into TextEdit, make the number style change, copy and then paste back into Sketch.

    The Sketch team are open to suggestions. Maybe a forum of type and vector geeks could put together a list of suggested inprovements.

    In theory, one should be able to use the built-in OS X Font panel for that. After selecting the text to adjust, try choosing View -> Show Fonts. Then, select the gear icon in the lower left to choose the Typography… panel. From there, one should be able to select the OpenType features of the font. A visual version of that description can be seen here: 
    Hope that helps.

    Ah, I was trying to find that but it seemed like it was missing. It's usually command-T, but they use that for something else, and it's usually in the Type or Font menu, not View menu.

    Never mind my workaround.
