New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
So I am starting a book project for which I am using a very complete and well designed typeface, the files are .otf. I thought .otf meant OpenType and that's it, I just discovered the different OpenType flavored types, which I don't quite understand yet, anyway, not the point...
So I checked and my typeface is an OpenType (Postscript Flavored).
Now... I am using the Book weight, which contains all the basic characters, but not the ligatures. For the ligatures, there is the Book Alt version, which contains all the nice ligatures that I would like to use in my text treatment...
From what I understand, OpenType would contain everything in one font file, these flavored things do not, because of the 256 glyphs limit, right?
Anyway, so how would I go about setting InDesign (CS5) to automatically recognize "st ct ff fi fl" etc etc., and replace them with the ligatures from the Book Alt font file?
I know OpenTypes discussions are all over the place, but I couldn't find an answer for that specific case.
Please anyone, any help will be greatly appreciated.
