    Ordinals, paragraph styles, character OpenType feature

    sPretzel Level 1



      My understanding regarding OpenType and Ordinals is that if I set the Ordinals feature in a paragraph style (or select a paragraph and set Ordinals in the Character panel), then InDesign is smart and only uses ordinals characters where they are needed, for example in 3rd, 5th.

      However, when I turn on the Ordinals feature in a paragraph style and apply the style to a paragraph, almost every word turns into a character followed by superscripts. Am I doing something incorrectly?


      Basically, I only want InDesign to apply the superscript to 3rd, 5th, 1st etc.


      This is for CS4. Thanks.
