Until version 126.96.36.199, the OpenType ligatures and context alternatives worked quite fine. However, in 188.8.131.52, OpenType ligatures and context alternatives do not work at all anymore.
For me, this is a major problem since I am working a lot with old German fonts that heavily rely on theses features.
Correction: Ir stopped working in 5.1.x, it worked in 5.0.x.
What is the state of OpenGL rendering on your Please copy and paste details from the Help -> About LibreOffice dialog
If enabled, any improvement if you disable from Tools -> Options -> View "Use OpenGL for all rendering (on restart)"?
Please copy and paste details from the Help -> About LibreOffice dialog and let us know which build of Windows you are working on.
Windows 7 SP1 x64
Version: 184.108.40.206 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 16; BS-Version: Windows 6.1; UI-Render: GL;

Turning on an off OpenGL and restarting does not change anything.
OK, thanks, one more question. Which fonts are you using that contain the ligatures?
I am mainly using proprietary fonts emulating old-style German lettering and handwriting created by http://www.fraktur.biz/. But I guess, also other OpenType smart fonts will cause issues.

Not sure, as it used to work in 5.0.x, apart from a strange detail problem. But basically, it worked.
Cn you attach test case? If it worked in 5.0, we can bibisect it.
The problem ia that the font I am using is proprietary, so I cannot attach it. However, maybe you can verify first, if OpenType ligatures and context alternatives work at all in 5.1.x. Somehow, ir does not look like it.

We are very busy with testing, so would appreciate, if you checked it and created a test case with non-proprietary fonts :)

Ok. Could you maybe name a suitable OpenType font I could use?

Not off the top of my head. Needs searching.
