OpenType feature support esp. for fractions and special characters/symbols

Question

It would be nice if VW would get better support for OpenType features, especially for symbols and fractions that are available in fonts that sometimes cannot always be inserted with e.g. the windows character map.

For example, standard fractions like 1/2, 1/4 etc. are usually not a problem but fractions like e.g. 3/16 don't show as a proper fraction in text even though the font supports such fractions in its font properties.

It would be nice if VW would support OpenType fractions so that they can be used in e.g. dual units setups and/or dimensions etc.

 

The same applies to some special characters that are in the private space of unicode fonts, they may not always show up in e.g. the windows character map utility but they do in other graphics/dtp programs that can show the full glyph/character palette. To have such a palette in VW would be quite nice as then you could make full use of such fonts.
