Thanks @GeorgSeifert and @mekkablue for your advice about colour fonts. I had a lot to work on but now I’m bacl to fonts and waiting on an anchor issue, I’ve startd with colour. And it works great! I’ve got ligatures using two colours now. And works fine in Pages on Mac!
However, it doesn’t seem to work with non-ligatures. Like the ligatures, they have two parts, one of each colour. I have done exactly the same with the ligatures and non-ligatures and both look great wihtin Glyphs. But when exporting, if the non-ligatures are included for export, they make the font not export. I get this message for the letter i for example:
It’s referring to the two items within that glyph. One is in layer 0, the other is in layer 1. Here’s the glyph info:
The ligatures worked fine so I do not understand why this is happening. Also the ligatures even worked if I kept both elements in the Color 1 layer and one of them in the Color 0 layer (which would therefore block out that one in Colour 1 layer anyway, giving the same result).
Help much appreciated!
