OpenType feature support in applications

There are over 100 registered OpenType layout features which can be used with OpenType fonts. Which ones will work for you? That depends on which OpenType features are implemented in the applications you use. (QuarkXPress 6, for example, doesn’t support any OpenType features at all). That’s why we provide this table presenting the current state of OpenType support. Not all OpenType features can be controled via GUI. Some are turned on by default; others are off by default and must be activated by the user. Please consult the PDF file provided with your Typotheque fonts for details.
