MALICE STENCIL OPENTYPE FEATURES





Malice Stencil contains a number of OpenType features that extend its creative capabilities. These features can be accessed via the OpenType or Typography panels in most professional destkop publishing applications.


We've compiled a handy guide to the each OpenType feature below. The method for accessing these features varies between apps. Consult your software user guide for more information or click the help icon below each description for tips on activating OpenType features in Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop and Affinity.

Stylistic Set 01 – Emojis


This feature works much like a Slack emoji command. With the Emoji's stylistic set activated, simply type one of the commands shown below to insert a corresponding emoji into a line of text. All commands must be inclosed by a colon ( : ).

All emoji commands work in lowercase, uppercase and title case. Some emojis can be activated by multiple commands (e.g :dove:, :bird:, :vulture:).

Contextual Alternate Question Mark


This (very subtle) feature replaces f? with a narrower question mark to aid legibility without resorting to tight kerning.

Slashed Zero

The Slashed Zero glyph is helpful in distinguishing the digit "zero" from the uppercase "O" anywhere the distinction might be important such as wayfinding signage or pricing applications.
