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


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.



Cannot reproduce. What exactly does not work?


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?


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


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:


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


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.
