Description Yury 2013-04-03 12:43:00 UTC
I can't get 'EB Garamond 12' (or 'EB Garamond 08') to display caps-high variant of numbers ('EB Garamond 12:lnum=1') or mono-width numbers ('EB Garamond 12:tnum=1').

Installing either the TTF or OTF fontfile makes no difference.
Libreoffice is either or

The variants themselves work (W*pedia's cross-stemmed W -- 'Linux Libertine G:ss05=1'), with LibO's packaged TTF fontfile for 'Linux Libertine G'.

I've noticed that 'EB Garamond 12' has styles named '12 Regular' and '12 Italic'. Might this be the cause of the problem?
Comment 1 Georg Duffner 2013-04-10 07:11:00 UTC
Unfortunately, you’re comparing apples with oranges. LinLibertineG uses a different technique called “Graphite” for its features. This has been implemented long ago in OpenOffice.
EB Garamond uses opentype features that have been implemented in LO only with v4 series. It’s still lacking an interface to activate optional features.
Hence this report is a duplicate of https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58941

Thank you!
But I hope it's clear I didn't mean to imply any criticism on 'EB Garamond' itself.
