Wrong assignation of "caroncomb.alt" in .alt characters


I’m currently working on a family with .alt characters and some of them are characters such as rcaron.alt, scaron.alt, and so on. I’m not sure this should be happening but instead of compose these characters with caroncomb it’s using caroncomb.alt as if they would be a dcaron, for instance.

Hope this post is useful.


Why do you call them rcaron.alt? Why not ss01? Or something meaningful?

Yes, caroncomb.alt is reserved for the vertical caron. So .alt is not an ideal suffix in this case.

I started designing these characters thinking about contextual alternates, that’s why I put this suffix instead of .ssXX. However, if that’s causing a sort of problem I’ll adjust their names.
