I am just wondering if the new designer V2 programme now supports the colour fonts (OpenType SVG fonts), as I will only buy V2 if it has this feature, as I’m very happy with Affinity Designer V1.
I use the Interstate font family for my branding. I have PostScript, TrueType and OpenType versions of these fonts. I just notice that when I select the Interstate OpenType fonts in the fonts menu, the different font style names do not display in the font menu. Instead, all type styles are listed as "Regular," but Regular appears in each type style. This makes selecting the correct typeface a bit of a challenge. This is happening in Design, Photo and Publisher. Is there anything I can do to correct this so that each OpenType type style shows its style name. Both the PostScript and TrueType fonts list the type style name in the type style. Please see attached screen shot for clarification.
Hi again, One more suggestion regarding OpenType features in APub beta build 126.96.36.199: One feature that I found helpful in Page Plus was the ability to select individual OpenType features such as the ability to display capital letters as smallcaps (see screenshot; useful e.g. to construct lists of content where the capitals are to be retained) as well as to select individual ligatures. Some fonts offer historical ligatures, e.g. ct with a hook over the c, which may be appropriate in some situations but not in others. In PagePlus you could (to the extent the functionality is available in the particular font) select to omit such ligatures while retaining others in it. Particularly helpful was the checkbox list where the available features could be selected or deselected on an individual basis. APub so far seems to offer “all or nothing” in this regard. On my wish list for Apub would be such an individual checkbox list feature as was available in PagePlus. Thank you for your consideration of this suggestion. Fahneflycht
