Ligature fonts
« on: March 27, 2020, 06:49:35 AM »
Does AM support ligature fonts? Or is it something that can be added?

Ligature fonts are mostly used with "font icons": you have a ttf font with all the icons inside, and each icon is bound to one or more ligature text, so if you apply the font to the word "folder" you obtain the folder icon instead of the text. This could open endless possibilities not only for icons and glyphs. Imagine a systems logos font with ligatures, just create a text box with the word Game Boy and the game boy logo is used, super neat! Or your text is "2 players" and it get substituted by the 2 players logo... etc
