This is my first post on this site. I’m beginner in designing Arabic fonts.
For a long time I was looking for a design guide for Arabic fonts on internet for accomplishing my own design of nastaaliq-shekasta, but didn’t find ANYthing else than a few companies that just sell their products. I have many troubles with Arabic OpenType features especially mkmk, mark and kashiada[?].
*Could you introduce me a free guide or handbook about Arabic fonts, or a complete OpenType features guide?
* How can I learn about mkmk and mark? could you help me?
* Which programs you are using to design OTF tables?
* Can I ask some more questions here? or this forum is just for experts?
