I'm looking for advice.
I'm working on font that contains Cyrillic characters and I'm having issue with locl feature.
There would be 3 Cyrillic sets: Russian, Bulgarian and Serbian.
Default Cyrillic characters (ISO 8859-5) would be Russian.
Since Serbian language is not supported (yet) by Adobe, so it doesn't make sense to place it under lolc feature, I'm not sure under what OT feature to offer it, to make it accessible for users.
I already use calt and salt features for another characters.
The only features left unused in Illustrator CS6 are dlig, cswh, titl, ordinals and fractions.
Does it make sense to place Serbian characters under any of these features (except in ordinals or fractions)?
Is there maybe some more logical solution for this?
Other than that, I would suggest using stylistic sets such as 'ss01', etc. This is pretty close to what they are intended for, anyway (except for the language-specific aspect of it). One set for all the Serbian alternates, probably another for Bulgarian.
You're right, there's no reason why not to include "locl". Stylistic sets also seem very logical. Thanks. I will probably do like that.
Yes, I know about InDesign. I have same issue like @John Hudson with Hunspell method, might be it's something wrong on my side. Thanks for the mentioning it.
I have Macedonian variation of Г already there. Since Thomas suggested me the way to organize all variations under stylistic sets, I will also add Macedonian as separate set (and under "locl"). Otherwise, I would left Macedonian out together with Serbian, since between these 4 countries, Serbia and Macedonia are the smallest markets and very (I'd dare to say) miserable in everyone's sale reports and keep only Russian and Bulgarian variations. But I'm glad Thomas suggested the way to solve it, so it should be it. Thanks for reminder about Macedonian!
Thank you all once again.
(The capture is in Portuguese, but the positions are the same in any UI language.)
Some day, I'll try the other method to see if I get any better result.
