Debugging a ligature that isn't a ligature
« on: 2013-06-24, 23:55:07 »
I have an old TrueType font that has some strange behavior. When the glyphs o and / appear next to each other, they combine into ΓΈ. Since it's specific to a single font, I thought I could see and fix the bogus setting for this font in Fontographer, but I don't see any way to do that. Is there a feature hidden somewhere that can show me why this is happening, or do I need a different tool?

Perhaps this behavior is the result of the 'liga' OpenType feature in the font. FOG doesn't allow you to view and edit OpenType features. But you can view features in Fontlab Studio 5 DEMO and then make a decision whether you need to change the font or just switch off ligature substitutions in your layout application.
