Issue with init/medi/fina glyphs in Cutting Edge version


#1

OpenType features for Cutting Edge 2.6.1 (1218) do not seem to be working for .init, .medi and fina glyphs, I’ve tried them in an older version — 2.6.1 (1201) — and they are working again.

Thanks,
Luke

Cannot reproduce. What exactly does not work?


#3

In Glyphs, when I type with initial, medial, final forms and contextual alternates turned on with my features updated, only the isolated/ default letters appear. I’ve attached an image of the result in the latest update of Glyphs (ignore the connecting c, I haven’t made the isolated shape yet). If you can’t reproduce it, I must be going wrong somewhere, but I can’t figure it out. Any ideas?


#4

This is what the word should look like, and does in an older version of Glyphs with the same features updated and active.


#5

I disabled the positional features as they do not work for none arabic texts outside of Glyphs anyway.

Georg, they are working for me in InDesign: https://goo.gl/m9bGdd


#7

This seems to be calt and not fina/medi/init?


#8

I’m still using this opentype features.

@GeorgSeifert I would like to request to make this feature available again.
I need it.
Thank you.

I’ll have a look. Are you sure that those features work in outside of Glyphs? Can you send me a sample font?

It is definitely fina/medi/init, not calt. I’ll email you an OTF.
