Positioning nodes with Opentype

Áron Jancsó's picture

Is there a way to position just some nodes of a glyph with Opentype? If yes how do I do it?

I would like to make contextual alternates this way. Like for T|Z make the top of Z shorter so it fits better. This way I could avoid generating many calt versions and keep my design simple.

Sorry if this has been discussed previously. Thanks for your help!

Nope, it’s not possible. You would have to make an alternate version of your Z and substitute via the calt OT feature.

Jens, Thanks for answering. So that's why I couldn't find any resources on this topic.
