    Composite Character Entry Incorrect

    They are on the keyboard... :-) But to get accented characters, there is no need to press alt on the US International layout. Just pressing the apostrophe, double quote etc. keys, then another key like a, e or o will result in an accented character.

    On U.S. International PC, there is no alt. Just the apostrophe and the other character.

    Disabling smart quotes has no impact.

    Running El Capitan. Default settings - see attached. Note that other Affinity apps work correctly, the issue only comes up in Publisher. autocorrect-sys.tiff

    Composite Character Entry Incorrect

    The issue first surfaced with a layout based on that. To test, I now loaded U.S. International - PC and the issue persists. For example ' + a results in 'á not á.

    Dear @thomaso, The bug is that #2, composite entry, does not work with a US Extended like keyboard layout on the Mac. It does work in other Affinity products. The other options are not really "typing"... :-)

    Dear @Hangman, @Alfred, Thank you for your notes and much appreciate the quick response! My hope is that Serif would fix this bug in Publisher, as both Affinity Photo and Designer work correctly with US Extended. Very long ago I had decided to use US International (Windows) and US Extended (MacOS), as those remain the closest relatives and I was stuck with Windows at work. I made a keyboard layout on the Mac that extended the US Extended layout and has worked very well for me. @Alfred - there are layouts on the Mac that use AltGr, but the Mac and the Windows layouts for some of the alternative keys are different, so is the layout for other localised keyboards. Hence the decision to use a US layout, which is always the same, available on all platforms. Oh, and greetings from the (momentarily) sunny Firth of Clyde! @Hangman - composite entry with the UK layout does indeed work, so it is clearly a bug with the US Extended layout. In any case, the point is that Publisher needs fixing! I have been using InDesign and considering Publisher as the long term solution. I understand that it is a younger product, although Serif has a long history. I was wondering what is your view on bugfixes? Is there a good chance?
  9. When entering composite characters, e.g., entering an á using the US International/Extended keyboard layout by pressing first the ' (apostrophe) key, then the a key, both the first and the combined characters are entered in Affinity Publisher. The correct behaviour should be to temporarily show the first character of a composite, then if a valid character for a composite is entered, e.g., an a after an ', then show only the composite á if an invalid character for a composite is entered, e.g., a b after an ', then show both the first and second characters
