[NTG-context] fallback font in new interface to simplefonts

Hi Pablo,  

you have to use the name of the font family (the name which is displayed in word processors when you choose a font). When you want to use the bold font for the upright style you can add “tf=style:bold” to the fourth argument of \definefallbackfamily.  


BTW: You can omit “force=yes” because it’s part of the default setup.

the following code doesn’t find the fallback font for Hebrew:

alphabeticpresentationforms}, force=yes]
\definefontfamily[mainface][serif][TeX Gyre Pagella]

But the same font works with the old interface:

alphabeticpresentationforms}, force=yes]
\setmainfont[TeX Gyre Pagella]

Am I doing something wrong here?

Many thanks for your help,
