I haven’t the foggiest idea how to automatically generate ligatures. I checked automatic feature generation in the font info: nothing seems to happen.
I found “fl” and “fi” in MacRoman but I have no idea where ff is.
I looked in the manual and the online help but I could only see the add glyph help. Add glyphs didn’t seem to do anything useful (to me, that is). Could anyone run me through a step by step for “ff”? I’ll probably undersand the process from the example.
That’s strange. I created an f_f. It created the glyph and put it in ligatures but didn’t assign a unicode. I put one in myself in the list view (FB00). Why do you think it didn’t assign a unicode. Is ff not standard?
For glyphs that are stylistic variations of other glyphs and are accessed by an OpenType feature, you do not assign unicodes (there are some exceptions). This has to do with what is saved into a PDF. You what it to contain readable text.
