software incompatibility
0

Hi guys,
I'm having a problem with my typeface and with illustrator cs4, they just recongnize the regular version (i have also the italic).
And with illustrator and indesign cs4 they don't recognize my ligatures, small caps and linning figures although linotype font explorer recognize at least the ligatures.
Some help?

Read Karsten Lucke’s guide to font naming: http://www.kltf.de/downloads/FontNaming-kltf.pdf
You might also want to search the build forum for other threads pertaining to naming issues. There are lots. As for your OT features, compare your OT code with some working fonts to be sure it’s correct, and make sure to compile the OT features before you create the fonts.
