Petaluma Script - how to access "special" glyphs

Post by AndreasB » Tue Sep 25, 2018 6:03 pm

I noticed that the character set of "Petaluma Script" already provides many special glyphs, which allow me to create something like this:

This example was created using InDesign.
I was not able to create this in Dorico (e.g. copying via clipboard from InDesign nor entering via Unicode did work.)

Is there a way to achieve this?

Thanks!

Unfortunately there's not at the moment, no, because Dorico can't access the stylistic sets in the font, but this is something we hope to support in the future.

Andreas,
another way to achieve this is using the Sibelius font Reprise instead, then it is possible.

To get the example below, type: {C`o`d`a`}
