Description Linus Drumbler 2013-01-19 22:45:14 UTC
I have several fonts on my computer that use the OpenType feature of stylistic sets to access alternate glyphs. Also, once in a while I like to use OpenType to change a font's numbers from old style to lining.

But the only OpenType feature LibreOffice supports is ligatures. An enormous number of fonts out there use OpenType features such as the ones I have described above, and that is why I have set this bug to critical. On the other hand, LibreOffice provides full and fantastic support for Graphite, a font technology in its infancy used only by a handful of fonts.

Could LibreOffice *please* add support for OpenType features? I hate having to use Word just to change a few glyphs.
