I have recently concluded my first font on Fontlab. It is a Latin base character. I have been testing out the font on programs, like Illustrator, and I have noticed a problem when I write the diacritics. Everytime I write the diacritic Illustrator automatically changes the font to Myriad. I have tried fixing the problem on Fontlab by going on the Glyph Properties window and assinging the OT to simple or ligatures, nothing works.

I have inserted an image into this post to better illustrate my problem.

Thank you.

To ask a pretty basic question:
In your font, did you include the glyphs using diacritics? (/atilde /aacute /agrave etc.)
It sounds like AI is falling back to Myriad, as the glyphs are not included.

This is unfortunately pretty normal, try to apply the font from the menu again while keeping CTRL pressed. I guess you didn't set the right encodings in the font info.
