Fontspec 2.1 and Hoefler Text

Postby alextsteinberg » Mon Nov 08, 2010 1:51 pm

Hi all,

I have a problem with using Hoefler Text and the newly updated fontspec.

Before the update it was possible to avoid fancy swirls at the beginning and end of italicised words by specifying something like the following:
  1. \setmainfont[ItalicFeatures={Contextuals={NoLineFinal,NoLineInitial}}]{Hoefler Text}

However, since the update, the following minimal code:
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{fontspec}
  3. \setmainfont[Contextuals=NoLineFinal]{Hoefler Text Italic}
  4. \begin{document}
  5. \end{document}

produces this error message: ! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \intexpr_if_even:nTF
{7}{\tl_set:Nx \l_tmpb_tl {\XeTeXselectornam...
and the document does not compile.

Is there another way of turning off the swirls at the beginning and end of words in Italic Hoefler Text, or, alternatively, an easy way of reverting to the working fontspec version?

Thanks in advance for your help.

That's the problem with commercial fonts. It is hard to find somebody who also has them thus can comprehend this issue. Or a Mac user who knows how to solve it.

As soon as the problem is sorted out, please act exactly according to Section 3 of the Board Rules.

Issue resolved as of fontspec 2.1d.

Return to “XeTeX”
