Feature Parameters

There are several features that support additional parameters:

Character Variants (cv01 - cv99)

Optical size (size)

Stylistic Sets (ss01 - ss20)

FontCreator supports all these feature parameters. To get access to those parameters, select or add the specific feature within the OpenType Designer dialog.

Character Variant

The above Character Variant feature contains the following Alternates lookup:

Stylistic Sets

As shown above, all Stylistic Sets feature parameters are grouped together.

 

Note: At the time of writing this manual, only a few applications make use of one or more of these parameters, but since more and more professional fonts do contain them, it is just a matter of time before we see advanced word-processing software and desktop publishing applications to support these feature parameters.
