Chapter 27. Working with Type in InDesign > Working with OpenType Fonts

Working with OpenType Fonts

OpenType fonts are a specific type of scalable font developed by Microsoft and Adobe that contain numerous glyphs and characters with swashes or discretionary ligatures. InDesign has a number of built-in features that provide additional support for OpenType fonts.

To see additional OpenType glyphs, open the Glyphs palette (choose Type, Glyphs) and select an OpenType font from the pop-up menu. Any character with additional glyphs displays an arrow in the lower-right corner of each character's display square (see Figure 27.22). To add any of these characters to your page, select it from the Glyphs palette.
