Lower Diacritics feature

Hello everyone,

I am building a font with a feature that I called ‘Lower Diacritics’ for a specific brand that can use really narrow line-height.

Then, I built an alternate comp for each accent (in this form: ‘xxx.capslower’) and set it as a SS. It works.

But I just realised, Could I just have moved the top anchors of any comp called ‘xxx.caps’ in a feature ?


You can’t change the anchor position in precomposed glyphs. You could decompose them and then move the diacritics around but that is not fully supported in Adobe apps.

Ok, I’ll continue with the ss feature instead! thanks a lot!
