Using OpenType Features: Figure Styles

November 17, 2009

Today we’re going to return to a tutorial teaching you more about fonts. Using OpenType Features: Figure Styles gives you a wonderful description of the different types of figures and ways to use them in Adobe InDesign.

To use special characters like this in CorelDRAW, open the Insert Symbol Character Docker (Ctrl + F11) and navigate to the font of your choice. The bad news is that CorelDRAW just flat out can’t access every character in an OpenType font. That means you may not be able to use all of the cool characters described in this tutorial. While I can’t give you magic access to these characters, I do encourage you to let Corel know you want the ability to access all characters in an OpenType font. The more they hear about it, the more likely we’ll get this problem rectified in the future.
