  1. https://affinityspotlight.com/article/affinity-184-updates-available-now No mention of improved Asian punctuation support aside from "Chinese Font names now show in Chinese", but a brief test seems to show that some improvements have been made. Cheers.
  2. Is the changes already implemented or we're still waiting for the next release? Cheers.
  3. Understand from the development standpoint, but if Serif is serious about tackling the issue, either you have to hire an expert/consultant on this topic, and/or work more transparently or actively with users like @ashf. Personally I'm impressed by the work @ashf and the Japanese Affinity userbase has done what's basically free QA for Serif. You don't find it in other places very often. Given time, people will lose interest, give up and move on. Just my 2 cents.
  4. The current punctuation "fix" is a makeshift workaround only. If Serif is serious about capturing the CJK Asian market, they need to consult a proper expert and re-think the whole thing from the ground up. Just my 2 cents. Cheers.
  5. Personally I don't use vertical layout much but yes, it's very, very common for Chinese, and that includes peoples in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Still wondering why Affinity doesn't adopt HarfBuzz... Cheers.
  6. Thanks a lot @ashf, did some quick check with common punctuations I use and most, if not all, seem to working fine now. Haven't done in-depth layout test but at least the punctuation marks are not appearing at the wrong places... Kudos to Affinity team and if anything you want me to help testing, please don't hesitate to let me know. Cheers.
  7. Kind of off-topic but it seems Adobe is using HarfBuzz? https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/39814711-harfbuzz Personal trigger here: https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/issues/2394#issuecomment-626254448 Cheers.
  8. The perks sound so nice though! Happy Weekend and Healthy Blessings.
  9. Given there are so many text shaping issues which can be potentially fixed by using an existing MIT licensed engine and increase the appeal of the Affinity line to the other 2/3 of the world of which English is not the primary language, I wonder why Serif doesn't go that way... What am I missing? Perhaps those engines ain't sophisticated enough to be used in the Affinity line? BTW, how will a Kickstarter campaign work in these cases? We collect $$$ for Serif to fix their programs? Are they willing to take it in? Cheers.
  10. It's an update back in January that brought along a quite a few new problems... https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/forum/all/monitor-stuck-on-displayport-with-640x480/fb4177e2-8c46-48b3-ae0e-168e9b86347b Cheers.
  11. The docking station of my Windows machine. Cheers.
