If I have a ligature, say ‘AB’, and I use Pages and I select B and make it blue, while A is still black, then the ligature doesn’t work anymore. It gives A and B separately. How can I remedy this? Can I make it ignore all changes such as colour change or going to bold or italic (I did not test those last two but I guess it might do same as colour changing - split the ligature?)
If not, then can I make a ligature for A(in black)+B(in red)? How?
