  1. Hello, I'm new to the Affinity product base but have purchased and am starting to use Affinity Designer. One issue I am running into out of the gate is trouble accessing various characters of Open Type fonts. Particularly those not mapped to Unicode. For example, I am currently working with the Antonietta font, which is partly mapped and partly not. While many of the alternates do not show up on some character maps that I use, I am able to access them via Stylistic Sets in AD. However, there are also characters that are not assigned to Stylistic Sets, nor are mapped, that I am unable to access. I know they are there as I can see them in a glyph gallery listing, and I can see them via Glyph Mode in MainType's character map, however they have no codepoint. That, in conjunction with the fact that there is no character map in AD, means I am unable to access to them and bring them into the workspace. Is there something I'm missing that would allow me to access these unmapped characters?
  2. In the Affinity Designer video for Open Type - Typography (https://youtu.be/DU-8kcp-9Ek) it shows how to use the Text menu to embellish the fonts. I tried with many fonts and none would do what the video is showing. Can someone let me know which fonts have been used in the video so I can achieve the same? Thanks for you help.
  3. When selecting a single character to replace with an alternative after replacing once the list grays out and I can't choose another different one. after this happens it's difficult to get the list to activate again. The font I'm testing with is Desire Pro so I should have lots of alternates to choose from.
  4. It would be cool when working with Opentype fonts with alternate glyphs, to be able to select a character with alternate glyphs and have AD present you the alternate glyphs, in the same manner as autocorrect presents alternate spelling suggestions beneath a misspelled word. Thanks for your consideration.
  5. I thought I would bring this open-type interface initiative to your attention. The type community is going to lobby Adobe very hard to improve their open-type interface. It seems to me that Affinity Designer can probably do a better job here. The information about this can be found here: http://ilovetypography.com/2014/10/25/why-a-better-opentype-user-interface-matters/ And designers are starting to mock up the interface methods that they'd like to see; something to look to for inspiration, perhaps. Cheers, Peter.
