I’m designing a typeface with alternate swashes and I have no idea how to name them… so they can show up inside Adobe Illustrator’s glyphs panel.
(For example I want to draw a swash that works for multiple glyphs, like this one: http://cl.ly/PyOP )
You could just call it swash.fina, and you could also build a calt feature, so people don’t need to go fishing for the swashes in the palette.
So if I have more than one type of swashes how will their name look?
I’m obviously a beginner, please have patience with me!
Thanks a lot!
I believe the Glyph Palette should be able to show them by clicking and holding. If it doesn’t, you may want to add this line to your aalt feature:
sub swash from [swash.fina.01 swash.fina.02 swash.fina.03];
Between the brackets, you add all swash names, separated by space.
