I have a number of dingbats and ornaments in my new type family that lack unicode values. These ornaments are identical in all styles, roman & italic. I find that if I use them in Illustrator (v24.1.2), and then try to change them from one style within the family to another style within the family, I can’t: I get a brief flash of a different ornament entirely, and then they snap back to the original style.
Changing these ornaments from one style in the family to another works fine in InDesign. And if I try copying a string of ornaments from the Edit window of the Roman .glyphs file & pasting them into the Edit window of the Italics glyph file, that works fine, too: the ornaments display just fine onscreen.
What am I doing wrong?
