Font doesn't work

Recommended Posts

I have a .ttf font which wrks fine on any other programme on my mac (Monterey 12.0.1) but not in Publisher (not on Photo neither). It is the first time I have this problem. I checked, everything is up to date, of course I tried to restart the computer. Any ideas what it can be ? It only shows the first letter if I keep it in small letters...

Thanks in advance, I would be really happy to figure this out.

On Windows the font works in APu.

The font also works in AD on iPad, although the kerning between pairs of capital letters is rather poor.326E914B-F654-4522-8E89-C3B0173B3CCF.jpeg.836bb399be77bfad4b28f011b07ad7af.jpeg

The font includes some OpenType features which are On by default (correctly).
Some applications do not support these features or have them Off.
Which is why you do not see this in the other applications.

Open the Typography panel, look for Positional Alternates, and disable Initial Forms, Final Forms, and Isolated Forms.
Then your text will go back to "normal."

This is where some font documentation would be helpful.

Note: I tested the v1.010 from Google Fonts (today).
Some of the older versions from other font websites do not have these features.
