Opentype Features

The backbone of Favorit Lining is its Opentype features. Activating Ligatures allows specific combinations of characters to be visually optimised, while activating Stylistic Set number 09 enables the Rock 'n' Roll underline.

Some characters have up to 3 variants for use in initial, middle and final word positions.

Character combinations such as "y@" and "y/" are optimised by activating Standard Ligatures. Additionally when letters such as "p", "q", "y" occur at the edge of words they are swapped for their cleaner initial or final forms.
