Hi! I’m currently working on a Thai font. I’ve added anchors and generated the automated OpenType features in the app to get the vowel marks working. I’ve had two issues:
- When I first generated the OpenType code, I got this error message:
Please understand that I have very limited knowledge of how these codes are supposed to work. I tried to make it work by unchecking the “generate feature automatically” and changing the last line as shown:
Somehow this did remove the error. But I wasn’t sure if I broke anything by doing this so just wanted to put it out there that this is what I did first.
- After I generated the code, thankfully all of my vowel marks started behaving correctly, even the tricky stacked small/narrow ones. When I previewed them inside the app, it works pretty well (I think):
I proceeded to export the font and tested it out in idiotproofed.com, where most other Thai fonts seem to render text correctly (Some doesn’t work in InDesign for some reason). But as you can see, mine didn’t work properly and the vowel marks are overlapping:
Any idea on how to solve this issue? Am I doing something wrong during the exporting process or the way I handled generating the OpenType features? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
