  1. Hello, Are you planning on adding functionality for the new OpenType variable font technology in Designer, Photo and Publisher? Best, Bauke
  2. For instance, the below text:- (literally:- are you going this year, brother ?) is not rendered properly in both Designer and Photo. The area that I highlighted contains tone mark which is supposed to be a bit higher than the upper-level characters, However, they are placed at the same level, and clash with each other. This suggested that the OpenType GPOS table is not applied.
  3. I understand why you did it, ligatures lock text from tracking. I have designed a font where this is solved by changing f and l not by single glyph fl but by just chaning the f, as you can see in the atached picture. 1) user should have option to turn this off. If can, where can I do it? 2) it should be applied only on liga feature where two glyphs change with one glyph Thanks, Jan
  4. Would be nice if you could implement "palt" feature https://sparanoid.com/lab/opentype-features/#palt Additionally pwid/pkna/halt would be nice. https://sparanoid.com/lab/opentype-features/#pwid https://sparanoid.com/lab/opentype-features/#pkna https://sparanoid.com/lab/opentype-features/#halt East Asian Tetragrams (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) smpl trad tnam expt hojo nlck jp78 jp83 jp90 jp04 hngl ljmo tjmo vjmo fwid hwid halt twid qwid pwid palt pkna ruby hkna vkna Ultimately I would like you to add "Mojikumi" feature that's set of templates for kerning. https://helpx
  5. I've noticed that all the Affinity applications have trouble with the Contextual Alternates feature (on by default). The 'error' occurs when the entered text has an initial capital. Specifically when the applications auto capitalise the first word. All OK in Adobe applications etc.
  6. Please add support for OpenType locl feature - Localized forms. Currently you can switch the language of a text from the Character palette, but this doesn't trigger the locl feature. (This is how it usually works in Adobe apps) This feature is quite important especially for Cyrillic scripts. Tested this with Affinity Designer, not sure what is the case with Affinity Photo.
  7. If a PDF with oldstyle figures is placed in an Affinity Designer document the figures get changed to default style (but with horrible kerning). If the PDF was orgininally created in Designer all numbers are changed to default figure style (as far as I can tell). If the PDF was created in Illustrator only the numbers of some of the fonts are changed. Look at the two attached files (JPEG preview and Affinity Designer): On top is the text written directly in Designer, below the placed PDF made with Designer and below that, the PDF made with Illustrator. The three fonts I used in this example
  8. There's a very specific combination of factors that causes this, but I verified in Illustrator that it's not just the font. I'm using the commercial font family Reatime, which is a monospaced font with an OpenType stylistic set that is proportionally-spaced. When the stylistic set is enabled in a text frame, certain combinations of letters (it seems random, but is replicable) result in a space wrapping to the next line, thus indenting the text on the new line. I can send a copy of the font for testing purposes to any of the developers.
  9. Hi, I do you have plans to change the opentype display in Affinity Designer. At the moment you cant see does a font support Small caps / superscript or does Affinity make a Faux version. Is there a email address where i could send questions about using Affinity programs at our school? We could be interested on installing Affinity suite on our Schools computers.
  10. Steps to reproduce: Create a line of text using the font FenoType Journey Open the Typography inspector Expected result: Font contains swash, stylistic alternates, and titling alternates (accessible in Illustrator)Observed result: No swash, stylistic alternates, or titling alternates options are shown in the typography pane I can send you a copy of the font for testing if you'd like.
  11. How do I access the extended character set in some of the newer Opentype fonts that have alternate swash caps, etc.? Illustrator has a glyphs panel, which I don't think AD has yet, but is there another way to do this, eg. keyboard shortcut or another utility? Thanks.
  12. Hi guys, Affinity Designer looks like a very promising alternative to Illustrator. I am a type designer (Proxima Nova) and have noticed some glitches in the OpenType support. The first one is in the display of Stylistic Sets in the Typography palette. Normally, these are displayed correctly, but I've discovered that if a font contains gaps in the range of Stylistic Sets, AD will only display Stylistic Sets up to the gap. For example, my typeface Proxima Nova contains nine Stylistic Sets. However, SS04 is only available in the roman styles, and SS05 is only available in the italic s
  13. There are some very odd behaviours with the numerals. If I select all the text and choose Oldstyle proportional numerals, some of the numerals are lining. If I make one of the numerals tabular, all the numerals are Oldstyle. I have tried this with several fonts.
  14. Trying out Affinity Designer I quickly found a bug when applying the Opentype Small Caps attribute to text. As you can see in the middle line of the pdf-file attached, in no font I tried “ein” and “ext” (of “Texttext”) is correctly formatted, neither in most fonts the “t” of “ist” – only Satero and Espuma make a difference here. There seems to be a difference, too, depending whether you use Art Text or Frame Text, as you can see in the top line: Set as Art Text, “esttext” is in lower case – in Frame Text it is again “t”, “ein” and “ext”. As I have the font Granjon in both OpenType- and Post
  15. Fantastic software! Many thanks. I am trying to set some Greek text using true small caps using various typefaces which I know contain and support true small caps for both Latin and Greek scripts. I have tried Arno Pro and Adobe Text Pro, and I suspect the issue is not with these fonts. Latin text set in true small caps from the 'Opentype' menu renders fine, but Greek does not. some characters turn into true small caps when writing but the input seems strange. I attach a screengrab showing the difference. Any assistance would be welcome. Many thanks in advance.
