Open Type small caps not scalable? - Adobe Indesign Macintosh

    One explanation could be that the Open Type small caps is an actual glyph of the font. As such, unlike with the other font types, the small cap is not created using the small cap percentage values, and therefore is not affected by any changes to the small cap percentage value.

    It's not one explanation, it is THE explanation. The percentage setting only affect faux small caps created on the fly for fonts without true small caps. BTW, if the font does not have true small cap even if it is a Open Type the control would work.
