Hello, I am currently working on a script font project that is quite complex, consisting of a total of 1640 glyphs and incorporating 20 stylistic alternate groups. My aim is to develop the font using contextual alternates, but I have encountered challenges in creating classes with an equal number of glyphs. The process seems extremely complicated and almost impossible to achieve.
I have thoroughly studied the guide on contextual alternates, but I am struggling with the creation of classes that require an equal number of glyphs. Additionally, I have attempted to utilise the mekkablue script, which generates a pseudorandom calt feature, but unfortunately, it hasn’t produced any results and it was not working for this specific project. I believe the extended and intricate configuration of the stylistic sets is complicating matters further.
At this stage, I am seeking your guidance and expertise. If it is possible, I would greatly appreciate any advice you can offer regarding the best approach for creating classes in this context. If necessary, I am more than willing to share the Glyphs file, so you can better understand the complexities and provide more specific assistance.
Thank you in advance for your time and support. I eagerly await your valuable insights and suggestions.
Are you sure you understand the meaning of suffixes? ss01, ss02, ss03 are not meant to be a sequence, they are independent options. It’s still not quite clear what you want to achieve, but perhaps https://opentypecookbook.com/ can help you understand how to write it.
