Why can't I get open type features to work properly with an open type font on InDesign CS5.5?

I installed a very complete set of styles of an opentype font with Font Book – Mac OS X 10.9.4 – but when I tried to format a sample text on InDesign CS5.5 I noticed that I could not use the opentype features on the Open Type menu as I usually do.

Could anyone help me, please?

What font is it? Which OT features are you trying to use?

It's ffScala Sans, but has separate files for small caps, figures, etc.

I was trying to use small caps, lining figures and superscripts when I

noticed none of the OT features are available.

I can't say for sure because FF Scala Sans is not an Adobe family, but if there are separate fonts for small caps, figures, etc. then the fonts most likely don't have any OpenType functionality. If that's the case, to use those alternate glyphs you will need to switch between fonts.

Yes, I suspect it is so.

Thank you very much
