Technological advances have enabled improvements of digital typography, including the addition of different features in the same file simultaneously, resulting into the OpenType format. Designers nowadays can explore new features in fonts, however, Adobe System's softwares, such as Adobe InDesign, have some issues regarding easing the use of these functions. Therefore, the aim of this study is to develop a new proposal for the OpenType menu included in Adobe InDesign, analyzing OpenType technology, understanding basics of interface design and developing an alternative for this menu. Bibliographical research is used in order to analyse OpenType technology and comprehend basic aspects of interface design. Documentary research is used for collecting opinions from users who are part of #AdobeTypeUI campaign on the internet. With this data gathered, a proposal for OpenType interface is designed and verified with users through a usability test. The results show that users can understand the new proposal and it becomes a possible alternative to the current OpenType menu on Adobe InDesign.
