For some reason, protrusion is not applied when using the \quotation macro. See the following example:


\definefontfeature [default] [default] [protrusion=quality]

  “Protrusion works with regular text quotation marks.”
  \quotation{But the \type{\quotation} macro breaks the effect on the quotes.}
  ‘Same with single quotes…’
  \quote{…and the \type{\quote} macro.}

Why is this happening? How can I fix this without having the write the quotes by hand?

EDIT: \define[1]\myquotation{“#1”} works, but it’s a bit of a hack.

    See this in the mailing list: mail-archive.com/[email protected]/msg97133.html. The alternative proposed is to use \setupquotation[method=font] \setupquote[method=font]. Does this work for you?

  • It works perfectly, thank you! I wonder why it’s not the default. I have to up my game when it comes to searching through the mailing list. Jan 7, 2021 at 14:12
