'ligatures' for numbers

Hi all,

I have been working on a project to create 100 unique interpretations of numbers 1–100. What would be the best way to approach creating these in Glyphs?

Not ligatures at all, but from a development point of view, I’d like to achieve a similar effect. When I type 12, I would like the unique ‘12’ to display as opposed to ‘1’ and ‘2’. I tried adding one_two as a glyph to see if this would work, but no luck.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts :slight_smile:

That is done with feature code, most likely “sub” in Contextual Alternates. You can get specific information about how to do that, here:

Thank you for your help with this, will give these articles a good read now :slight_smile:
