> Hi,
> I have written for my personal use this code (still quite crude) that
> allows me to preview with org-latex-preview small text strings in a font
> marked in dired, and test open type features too. The preview is
> compiled with LuaLaTeX, since LuaTeX allows to load fonts that are not
> installed in the system.
> When a font is selected, the list of opentype features included in the
> font are extracted (using the otfinfo command), and they are arranged in
> the preview buffer as buttons. By clicking on each button we can
> activate in the preview the corresponding opentype feature. For example,
> if the font includes the 'smcp' feature, clicking on the button 'smcp'
> the text will be displayed in small caps.
> We can enter the text strings literally or through Unicode code: each
> character separated by a space; the separation between words is marked
> with a vertical bar. For example, this code:
> 0063 006f 0064 0065 | 0068 0065 0072 0065
> returns the string "code here".
> As a third option, a complete specimen can be displayed from a file.
> Here is a demo video: https://cloud.disroot.org/s/aHXKiof36fTSZGB
> As I said, my function is still pretty crude, and while it works well,
> it's now more of a proof of concept than a finished thing. But if anyone
> wants to try it, I attach the code here in an org document.
> Best regards,
> Juan Manuel
