Note: OpenType Layout features can be specified as an external text file in the Adobe FDK for OpenType (AFDKO) version 2.5 format. OpenType Layout features are not preserved when an existing OpenType font is opened in Fontographer. We recommend DTL OTMaster to export AFDKO feature specifications from existing fonts and import them into Fontographer.
