[NTG-context] How do I define a smallcaps font?

 Replacing \smallcaps with \sc fixed it. I had assumed they were synonyms---the same as \bf vs \boldface, \it vs \italicface, but it seems they are different entirely?
Thanks!

SerifCaps etc. works with the traditional \sc, don’t know about \smallcaps.

Are you sure your fonts are found?

mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=EBGaramond


If your regular OpenType font contains smallcaps, try:

\definefontfeature[mysmallcaps][default][
  smcp=yes, % smallcaps
  script=latn,
]

\starttypescript [serif] [garamond] [name]
...
\definefontsynonym [SerifCaps][EBGaramond-Regular][features=mysmallcaps]
...
