Font Features buttons do not work

Fieldworks 2.0: Data Notebook andĀ Topics List Editor

Problem: The Font Features buttons do not work in the Writing System Properties dialog.

Note: Font features are quite specialized for non-Roman capabilities, so those using Roman scripts will probably not be affected by this.


Set the default font features for the writing system using WorldPad, in which the Writing System Properties dialog works correctly. Data Notebook and the Topics List Editor will then use the same features.

Override the font features for the writing system in the Styles dialog since the Features button works correctly in this dialog.
