  1. Hii, It's been a long while. What was told during designer days was that this would definitely be addressed in Publisher, is still nowhere close to fruition (Refer: Yes, true, we're not entitled and in position to be demanding, but feel left out that this is being not addressed and the more time it takes, the more it forces some of us to cave in and purchase Adobe Publisher or CorelDraw, purely because some can't just wait anymore, owing to professional commitments, etc. Please provide a workaround or something so that we can jump on the Serif bandwagon wholeheartedly. Thanks.
  2. Since my main requirement is for designing brochures, banners, and vernacular adverts, should I be looking at CorelDraw then? I'm pretty used to Publisher/Designer by now, but vernacular language support is a necessity for me. Also, the way I type is using Google transliteration online, and copy the text from there to Publisher. Would love to hear your input on this, and if there's anyway I can go with a workaround. Thanks.
  3. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue? Or am I the only one doing something wrong? Thanks.
  4. Hello, Been using Publisher on and off (off mainly due to joint characters not supported in certain languages). Say in, Gujarati or Hindi, Publisher is unable to type out characters which have a joint pronunciation. I have an artwork getting ready. It says FREE MATTRESS, wherein it can be seen what Publisher types out. \ Now, the real version (also as per Google) is as below: As a result of non-support of such texts, I unfortunately have to go back to CorelDraw for such purposes. Would be awesome if this could be addressed. Thanks.

    Hindi font problems

    Anytime (sign me up wherever however for the Publisher) ! Just FYI, I am into designing adverts, flyers, office literature, etc. We're a small biz and can't afford designers/artists, and since I know a bit, I do it for the biz myself and can't see myself paying the eye-watering prices Corel asks for. Then, someone recommended Affinity, which I am finding very useful but have to stop short when it comes to writing text in Gujarat/Hindi language. Thanks

    Hindi font problems

    Hi Chris, Nice to hear from you. Looking forward to this issue being resolved in Publisher. Do you guys, by any chance, have a beta/testers' program for Publisher? I am really really really keen to ditch Corel and jump on Affinity bandwagon. Desperately waiting for Publisher to come out, so I could yell "Take my money" (well, just because I know you guys ain't greedy on that front) and be done with Corel fleecing small ppl (like me) off. Thanks.
  7. This is still an unresolved issue, I guess... Screenies below would show that. First one from Google Translate (How it should be), Second one from Designer (incorrect display)

    Hindi font problems

    This hasn't still been solved, I guess. I'm facing similar issues in Affinity Designer (the latest version) as well. First file below shows a text (Triple) and it's literation in Gujarati - the correct way. Second file shows the same text (Triple) in Gujarati in Affinity Designer - displays wrongly. I was looking to ditch CorelDraw and completely move to Designer but now have to stop short as I have to type in Gujarati for most of my work. And it does not work with Copy, Pasting from Translate as well, so it's not that Designer would just type incorrectly. I hope this can be addressed sooner than later. Thanks.
