Placing in mirror last glyph in word
0

I was wondering is there a way to mirror an glyph in Open Type font?

For example, if I type word:

RemarK

And K as a last glyph, could it be mirrored on some way automatically?

There are several ways in which this could be approached, but the easiest way for your purposes and the mostly widely supported at this time, would be to a) create mirrored glyphs in the font and b) use the 'calt' layout feature to contextually substitute them when not followed by another letter glyph.

Thanks John for answering.

Your a) + b) = that's it!

Would the .fina feature be totally inappropriate for this?

(Entirely possible, because I recall some threads where attempts were made to make .init, .isol, .medi and .fina work with Latin fonts, and some software doesn't properly handle these four for non-Arabic glyphs. Well, that's what I recall, at least.)

'fina' might work for this purpose in Adobe apps, but I suspect not elsewhere.
