I can't figure out why fontspec is acting so, but here is a workaround: add another size-feature, and so every SmallCapsFeatures will apply to the next size. A MWE: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage{xcolor,fontspec} \setmainfont[ SizeFeatures = { { Size = { -1}, Color = blue, SmallCapsFeatures = { ...

I am currently disabling kerning between an apostrophe and a succeeding letter by using XeTeX's interchartoken mechanism: \XeTeXinterchartokenstate=1 \newXeTeXintercharclass\ApostropheClass \XeTeXcharclass`'\ApostropheClass \newXeTeXintercharclass\AfterApostropheClass \XeTeXcharclass`a\AfterApostropheClass \XeTeXcharclass`A\AfterApostropheClass ...

This problem affects most Adobe fonts (Adobe, are you listening?). I don’t use xetex enough to know what can be done about it in xetex, but in luatex you can write a feature file to adjust the kerning without editing the font itself. It’s much easier than it sounds. E.g., \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage[french]{babel} ...

Vollkorn Here is a great open-source font from Friedrich Althausen with eight styles and multilingual support. http://vollkorn-typeface.com/. The following font flavors are supported: PostScript OpenType .otf TrueType OpenType .ttf Web open Font Format .woff Embedded OpenType .eot Ligatures Glyphs Kerning Found in this tex.stackexchange ...

As you have a variable font for the 'unit' part of quantities, and that is a text mode font, I think you are best off using text mode with siunitx \sisetup{unit-mode = text} This will then use whatever the current text font is for units, so the math font will have no impact. (Untested as I don't have the appropriate fonts.)

You need to tell fontspec to emulate traditional TeX typesetting features, such as turning backticks and straight quotation marks into curly quotation marks. You can do this using Mapping but the recommended syntax is Ligatures=TeX: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[a4paper, margin = 0.4in]{geometry} \usepackage{fontspec} \begin{document} ...

Just add Mapping=tex-text or Ligatures=TeX to the \fontspec options (see §11.1 of the docs).

The mapping substitutions work on a character basis, but XeTeX never uses the space character; rather, it changes space tokens into horizontal glue, so when the substitution stage is reached, there's never a combination U+0020 U+00B7. You can use newunicodechar for this purpose: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} ...

\ifxetex detects whether you are compiling with XeTeX or not. If you are, it executes the if bit. If not, it executes the else bit. Moreover, you cannot use inputenc with XeTeX (so it is good, really, that that code is never read). You can use 'normal LaTeX fonts' for the rest of the document, though. Just use the three lines of code from ...

As for your primary question: use the Ligatures=TeX when selecting the font; for example, \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Segoe UI}. You can use Unicode en dash (–; U+2013) directly instead, which I find better than using the old TeX ligatures. As for your secondary question: I can recommend wholeheartedly Gentium. It is free, libre, comprehensive and extremely ...

The character exists, provided you use the correct Unicode point (U+0387) \documentclass{scrbook} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{texgyrepagella-regular.otf}[Style = Alternate, Ligatures = {Common,TeX}] \newfontfamily\greekfont{GFS Porson}[Ligatures = TeX] \usepackage{polyglossia} \setmainlanguage{german} \setotherlanguage[variant = ancient]{greek} ...

Suppose the two fonts "X" and "Y" are TeX Gyre Pagella and TeX Gyre Heros (Palatino and Helvetica clones, respectively). Both fonts feature normal, bold, italic, and bold-italic shapes/weights. To restrict the Scale=0.8 option to just the bold weight of TeX Gyre Heros, you could issue the commands \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{TeX Gyre Pagella} %% ...

\usepackage{fontspec} is sufficient. It will set the fonts to Latin Modern by default. That said, your code compiles fine for me. I am not that familiar with XeLaTeX. However, I know it uses OS fonts and I know it handles things differently from LuaLaTeX. So you may need to tell your system about the TeX fonts. For example, I have the following ...

The OTF name for the font is "TeX Gyre Pagella". The PostScript name is "TeXGyrePagella". If you only see the PostScript name, it means xelatex can't find the OTF file. As other examples discuss, this is a bug of the packaging, either TeX Live or Debian. Some PostScript fonts are installed in system folders, but not the small caps. The workaround is to ...
