How do I access the ornaments in Geronto Bis?

Hey guys!

I'm playing around with Geronto Bis and I was wondering if anyone knew how to access the ornaments? I can't seem to find them with any key combination; although they appear when I preview the whole repertoire in Fontbook.

What software?

Some alternate forms can not be 'typed' in, and can only be accessed by software that uses OpenType (ligatures, either common or discretionary; old style figures), and then sometimes only with a manual override -- the ornaments hidden under bullets in some fonts, for example.

Adobe InDesign and Illustrator have no problems with these features.

Strange… I'm using Illustrator CS2, and as much as I play with the OpenType options, I can't get to the ornaments. When I open the font in FontExplorer, the ornaments have no Character code, Unicode or Keystroke assigned to them.

I'll keep trying with the OT features…

Use the Type / Glyphs palette in Adobe Illustrator CS2 - select the ornament you want and double click - they are at the bottom of the palette
