I Am currently working on an Arabic Font. I want to know is it possible in Microsoft Volt (preferably) or in FontLab to use the same glyph for alternate Ijam (Dots) placement? I have attached an Image explaining my query.
For example I made a ligature in the font as the one on the right side of the image "hahhahisolated". Then I have to make eight more glyphs with the same shape but only Ijam (Dots) difference as shown in the Image. So In the font I have to assign the same shape to nine glyphs instead of one. As a result the number of glyphs increases too much in the font while I want to keep them less. How can I use only one glyph with Ijam variation on the same glyph in Microsoft Volt? If it is not possible in Volt than how can I do it in FontLab?
Please Help me.............
