Small Caps

Most Typotheque fonts implement the Small Caps feature. In Adobe applications and in QuarkXPress you can replace lower case letters with small caps using the keyboard shortcut (⌘ + ⇧ + H), or the OpenType menu.

Case Sensitive Forms

When the ‘change to caps’ function is applied from within an application (not when text is typed in caps) appropriate case-sensitive forms are automatically applied. Regular brackets, parenthesis, dashes and hyphens are replaced with their capital forms.

Discretionary Ligatures

The discretionary ligature feature creates real arrows when you type the combination -> (right arrow), <- (left arrow), -^ (up arrow) or ^- (down arrow). It also creates enclosed numerals when you type numerals inside parenthesis, and inverse enclosed numerals when you type numerals inside brackets. Discretionary ligatures are off by default in Adobe applications.

Superscript / superiors

Replaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their superior alternates, which can be used for footnotes, formulas, etc. Superior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text.

OFF

ON

Subscript / inferiors

Replaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their inferior alternates, used primarily for mathematical or chemical notation. Inferior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text.

Proportional Lining Figures

Typotheque fonts contain various styles of numerals within one font. Old-style Figures (OsF), also known as ranging figures, come standard in all our text fonts. They are specifically designed to work well in running text, as they have the same proportions as lower case letters with their ascenders and descenders.

The proportional Lining Figures (LF) feature changes standard figures to Lining figures which work better with all-capital text.

Slashed zero

To avoid confusion between a zero and a capital O, a slashed zero glyph is available in most Typotheque fonts. It is activated by an OpenType feature.
