I got back to working on an old project and thought for a second that I'd purchased the wrong version of a typeface. The typeface in question is called Parfumerie, and I purchased it off Font Shop over a year ago. Affinity Designer is hell-bent on adding additional swashes to my chosen text in this particular typeface. I know I didn't purchase the wrong typeface, as I've tried this in Pages, and the characters appear as they should.
If I turn off ligatures completely, it does some additional weird stuff to the text! I am attaching what it *should* look like, versus what it currently looks like. I have also gone into Preferences - Reset Fonts and it doesn't do anything.
I'm coming from years of using Illustrator and when I found Designer, I was ecstatic. I prefer it so much more. But this is really stumping me!
I appreciate your help, all! Thanks
