Font with Character Variant Features

I am using an arabic font called scheherazade New which has character variant features.

 

So the unicode of one character is 064F.

The unicode of its 2 variant characters is 064F cv70 and 064F cv70,2.

 

Normally to replace one arabic character with another you use \x{064F}.

 

But in this case how would you replace one character with another?

 

More details about character variants here - https://software.sil.org/fonts/features/

The page you linked was pretty clear on the issue, I think. There's a link to a Github where someone has hosted a script called "cv01_switch.jsx" which you can use to access this feature, once you've installed the script in the correct location.
