I created test OTF font with several color glyphs, but they don't work in Adobe Ilustrator CC (23.0.1). Program don't see the color glyphs. Does someone know why? E.g. my font hasn't "svg" icon like e.g. EmojiOne. What should I do to make my font have this status? Is there a way to convert?

So far as I know, OTF fonts cannot be coloured. Coloured fonts are an entirely different concept. Have you read anything saying they can?  And, how do you make the font, since Adobe software cannot do this?

I created OTF font with color glyphs in FontCreator: tiny[point]pl[slash]t4q5l. It works good in Paint.NET. I don't understand why it doesn't work in Illustrator.
