I wanted to try this to set up my stylistic alternates (characters with beginning and ending swashes) so they can be visible in the character map. But, when I try to rename the uniE000 to a.ss01 for example I lose the E000 unicode name.
How should I do this?
According to Laura Worthington, many people who buy script fonts are not creative professionals and do not have Creative Cloud. They need non-OpenType solution to input fancy alternates, and they’re more concerned about different kinds of utility and compatibility, 1. inputting them more easily from char map and 2. preserving them across different apps but in the same font. To them, preserving plain text info is of low priority.
