Hi,

Last night I posted a fix for this. I made it to use either combining overline U+0305; or combining conjoining macron U+FE26. So far in serif normal only.

In FreeSerif, U+FE26 COMBINING CONJOINING MACRON is too short above some Coptic letters. That is, it does not touch the macron segment to the left. The following lists the affected letters.

  • U+03E5 COPTIC SMALL LETTER FEI
  • U+2C80 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER ALFA
  • U+2C82 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER VIDA
  • U+2C84 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER GAMMA
  • U+2C86 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER DALDA
  • U+2C87 COPTIC SMALL LETTER DALDA
  • U+2C88 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER EIE
  • U+2C8A COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER SOU
  • U+2C8C COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER ZATA
  • U+2C8E COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER HATE
  • U+2C8F COPTIC SMALL LETTER HATE
  • U+2C90 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER THETHE
  • U+2C94 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER KAPA
  • U+2C96 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER LAULA

  • U+2C99 COPTIC SMALL LETTER MI
  • U+2C9A COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER NI
  • U+2C9B COPTIC SMALL LETTER NI
  • U+2C9C COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER KSI

  • U+2CA4 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER SIMA
  • U+2CA6 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER TAU
  • U+2CA8 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER UA
  • U+2CA9 COPTIC SMALL LETTER UA
  • U+2CAA COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER FI
  • U+2CAB COPTIC SMALL LETTER FI
  • U+2CAC COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER KHI
  • U+2CAE COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER PSI
  • U+2CAF COPTIC SMALL LETTER PSI
  • U+2CB0 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER OOU
  • U+2CB1 COPTIC SMALL LETTER OOU
  • U+2CC0 COPTIC CAPITAL LETTER SAMPI

With a macron, these letters are used as numbers. U+FE26 is too short above some other Coptic letters in FreeSerif, but since they are not used as numbers, I didn’t mention them. This is not to say that those other letters can’t take a macron; they probably do, but I don’t know for sure.
