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.

All Small Capitals

In Adobe applications there are two methods of applying small capitals. The first one replaces only lower case letters with small caps. The second method, All Small Caps, also replaces capital letters with small caps. It also replaces regular quotation marks, exclamation points, question marks, slashes and asterisks with small caps variants.

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.

Standard Ligatures

Standard ligatures are those which are designed to improve the kerning and readability of certain letter pairs. For example, when this feature is activated, typing ‘f’ and ‘i’ will automatically produce the ‘fi’ ligature. Using ligatures does not affect the spelling and hyphenation of your text in any way.

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.

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.

Tabular Figures

Tabular figures (TF) are for use in tables where numerals need to be aligned vertically. Tabular figures are available as a OpenType feature and have a fixed width in all weights. Typotheque fonts also include Old-style Tabular figures.

Localised Forms

Some languages such as Bulgarian, Serbian or Macedonian prefer variant letter shapes to the standard Cyrillic shapes. This feature replaces standard forms with localized ones when the text is tagged Bulgarian, Serbian or Macedonian.
