I do not mean to be arrogant or agressive, but what part of «i've got
this issue with every font that has alternate stylistics» you don't
understand? I do follow your steps, and the result is in the snapshot at
the end. I have no intention of generating a discussion here of what is
or what is not graphic design about. But i'm very sure it's not like
working with squares, and if the squares doesn't work maybe i change it
for circles, or triangles maybe, because it implicates a new level of
significance. A typographic choice isn't arbitrary (i suppose that you
can tell the difference between Comic Sans or Helvetica or whatever font
you like) and it's followed by what you want to communicate in that
certaint way to a predetermined public or receptor. I repeat, i do need
to work with a determined font to communicate a specific message. So
tell me, if you take a look at the snapshot above, how do you insert
that glyphs if Scribus doesn't know how to render it?
However, thanks for your time and patience.
