Diacritics on alternates


#1

How do Glpyhs manage the diacritics for alternate characters? for example I got a and a.ss01. I cant get it working to have a.ss01 acute? is that automatic?

An /a with an acute should be named aacute so you would need an aacute.ss01.

ah, its a manual process… ok, thanks!

You could separate the base glyph and the accent in the ccmp feature. Then you only need the alternate base glyphs. This approach is very convenient but not working everywhere or need some special setting (you need to activate the World Ready Composer in Indesign).
