Command G
Name your glyphs "paragraph.alt" and Q.alt"

They will now be available to users in the glyph palette.

Also:

Create a Stylistic Set.

sub paragraph by paragraph.alt;
sub Q by Q.alt;

This will work if you generate ".otf" fonts, and be available to users in the OT features palette.

Hi Nick

Thank you very much for helping, appreciate it!

have a good one

Nick, sorry but i don't really got that last part for creating a stylistic set

" sub paragraph by paragraph.alt;
sub Q by Q.alt; "

an one more last question maybe..when i do Command G, should i select/deselect "create glyphs even if they exist or select/deselect "mark new glyphs...

kind regards
