OpenType Support in Digital exports

Post by Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 15 Mar 2018, 08:54

Hi all,

we first thought that we can only support OpenType as an experimental feature in Digital exports (App, HTML5, ePub).

Great news: Looks like browser support and QuarkXPress type engine is robust enough, so it will be a production feature.

Only caveat: "OpenType rendition is browser and device dependent"

Here's a live example:

Here's how it looks in Safari 11.0.3:
