Stylistic Sets refuse to work in Applications

Hello Everybody,
I have a weird problem, and didn’t seem to find a solution around here. I use 3 Stylistic sets with a pseudorandom feature (calt, contextual alternates). Inside Glyphs, everything works fine, but other applications refuse to display the .ss as if it didn’t export the features. The Opentype Features are activated in Indesign.
I swapped the Priority of the features around, but it didn’t help.
My Features look like this:

Are you sure you don’t have a font cache problem:

And have you read this:

yes im mostly sure, because i tested it in an web application ( that eats contextual alternates by default. It did fine before i added diacritics (also across stylistic sets, also listed in calt), but now it doesn’t accept the features anymore. I probably messed up something in the process, but what?


Can you send me the .glyphs file?

yes, but there is no pm function in the forum, right?
need an email then…

I elevated your user level. You should be able the send messages now.

You need to update the LanguageSystems entry. Just check the “Generate Feature automatically”. It should look like this:

languagesystem DFLT dflt;

languagesystem latn dflt;
languagesystem latn AZE;
languagesystem latn CRT;
languagesystem latn KAZ;
languagesystem latn TAT;
languagesystem latn TRK;
languagesystem latn ROM;
languagesystem latn MOL;

ah it works, thanks for your time
