lookup in volt
0

Hi
Can you please help me here?
How can I to write this script in volt:

In fontlab is
feature ss14 { # Stylistic Set 14
script hebr; # Hebrew
lookup ss1426 {
lookupflag RightToLeft;
sub @ccmp2 qamats' @ss149 maqaf by qamats_qatan;

I tried this in volt but it's not working
qamats' maqaf -> qamats_qatan

Thank you in advance,
Eli Zohar

In VOLT, you put the substitution string in the top part of the lookup window, and the context in the lower part, on the left or right of the | depending on whether the context is before or after the glyph(s) to be substituted. [Note that left/right refer in the contexts to before/after, and are not directional, i.e. for a RTL script like Hebrew, the before context still sits to the left of the | marker.]

I presume you are wishing to substitute qamats qatan for the regular qamats when it follows (?) maqaf. If so the lookup would be like this:

qamats -> qamats_qatan
maqaf |
