New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have been working on a typeface called Tovarich which has several opentype features which used to work fine until a few days ago. I can't figure out what I did to screw it up but I must have done something bone-headed.
From within FontLab 5, my features compile properly without complaint. They show up and work as expected in the preview screen. When I output the font as PostScripot flavored OTF, my features vanish in both InDesign and Illustrator CS. There are brackets around the feature names in the menu indicating "nobody home" and the features don't work. For the past few days, I have been trashing my features and redoing them all to no avail. I trashed them and then imported features from one of my other fonts which is working fine but it still does not work! I have trashed my cashe several times, rebooted, resaved the font under a new name and redone the features again all with the same unpleasant result, terminal frustration! What the heck have I done wrong? Why will the exact same feature code work on one font and not another?
I would be tearing my hair out but that ship has long sailed,
Any help would be appreciated,
