  1. So for example 'Calibri' doesn't support the checkmark character (U+2713), but Publisher automatically substitutes it with another font that supports that glyph -- for me, it is 'MS UI Gothic'. Of course, one may argue that using 'fake glyphs' implicitly is not necessarily the desired way to handle missing characters, but I think it is the expected behavior here. Problem: These unsupported-but-substituted characters temporarily become 'unknown' characters after using the Update Character Style function. Creating the problem: New document Frame Text Tool, text: some text [checkmark character] font: 'Calibri', though the [checkmark character] character implicitly becomes 'MS UI Gothic' Choose a character style (e. g. the built-in 'Emphasis' style) Modify the style of the text (e. g. increasing the font size) Update Character Style This is the result: some text [question-mark-in-a-square character] If I export it to .jpg or .pdf, it remains the same. Workarounds: If I save the file, then close, and reopen it, everything is good again. An easier way: Text menu -> Reapply Text Styles. [Windows 10, Affinity Publisher]
