How do I access / map manually added ligatures in Word?
0

Hi guys,

I've created a client font that has some manually added ligatures. It works fine on Apple, because OpenType does the work for me. But can I get these ligatures to work in Microsoft Word? They're not mapped to any key on the keyboard, so how can I access them? I'm making a small manual for the client how to use the font. If this means I have to map these extra ligatures to some keys, this is fine with me.

Can anyone help me out here?

Word 2010 and later can use ligatures in OpenType, but they aren't on by default.
