comment Getting ligatures of Qv with Linux Libertine
@Ludenticus, are you sure you have written everything exactly the way it is supposed to be done? Because when I do the same for italics, it does not work. True, I did make one change: I moved the right border line of the Qv glyph a bit to the left to make it all look more natural. However, I cannot see how this should be a problem.

@MaxNoe What seems not to be the case? That it works?

Well, u used to be written v, hence in many ancient texts, Qv appears. That is a good reason to have this particular ligature (unlike, say, Qt, which is probably a rare combination --- I think). That being said, I think the tailed Q in general looks better, no matter what follows it, so they should consider adding Qx for all x in {letters}.

It works perfectly for me --- in XeLaTeX. But once I switch to LuaLaTeX, it disappears again. Any good idea why?

Wow, then it is a lot easier than I thought. Have you in fact already done it (for the non-small cap version), since you provide a screenshot? Can I have the file?

I already tried sending them an e-mail. We'll see what happens.

@egreg Well, I went to sourceforge.net/p/linuxlibertine/feature-requests and registered an account, but I could not see any button labeled "new request". How do I add a new one?

Then I'm in trouble. However, I very rarely use other backgrounds than white. But I'm definitely not going to use this in my publication! ;-)

The correct way to do it would probably use some \hphantoms or something, but I couldn't get it to work.

@egreg Never say never! (In fact, I think you never did.)
