Aalt feature not working


#1

The aalt feature in my font is not working. For instance, in Indesign no alternates showing up. However, when I remove manually “feature ccmp;” in the automatically generated aalt feature, it works. Also, when I move the aalt feature to the top of the feature list, it works. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?


#2

I removed the ccmp feature from the default in aalt. By default, Glyphs sorts the aalt feature to the top of the list, but it respects the existing order…


#3

Would you advise to put the aalt feature to the top? Tal Leming suggests it quite at the end of the list: http://opentypecookbook.com/putting-it-together.html


#4

I added that already. If it is set to automatic, it will be move to the top.


#5

Yes, I know. I was wondering because Lemings opentypecookbook suggests the aalt feature at the bottom of the list.


#6

This feature should be ordered first in the font, to take precedence over other features.
