Hi, i have a problem with the positioning feature. Working on a handwritten font and would like to include some correcting marks that should overlap with the already written text.
I’m using the dlig feature for it (as there is no feature for this purpose, at least as far as i know). I’m creating correcting marks as ligatures, for example 2 or more - become a single strike out, 2 or more / will be a wavy strike out etc. The problem arises when i try to overlap those ligatures with the text preceding it.
Tried the pos before and after the ligature lines (inside the dlig) but didn’t work. First i though it was somehow overlapping with the ligatures so i tried the pos just on a hyphen to se if it works and nothing happened - not a single movement either in the x or y direction.
pos hyphen -600;
pos hyphen <-600 0 0 0>;
pos hyphen’ space <-600 0 0 0>;
some others just cos i like to test all the imaginable possibilities.
What am i doing wrong?
Found a workaround by setting the glyph width to zero but would really like to figure out how to use the pos.
