  1. So for example 'Calibri' doesn't support the checkmark character (U+2713), but Publisher automatically substitutes it with another font that supports that glyph -- for me, it is 'MS UI Gothic'. Of course, one may argue that using 'fake glyphs' implicitly is not necessarily the desired way to handle missing characters, but I think it is the expected behavior here. Problem: These unsupported-but-substituted characters temporarily become 'unknown' characters after using the Update Character Style function. Creating the problem: New document Frame Text Tool, text: some text [checkmark character] font: 'Calibri', though the [checkmark character] character implicitly becomes 'MS UI Gothic' Choose a character style (e. g. the built-in 'Emphasis' style) Modify the style of the text (e. g. increasing the font size) Update Character Style This is the result: some text [question-mark-in-a-square character] If I export it to .jpg or .pdf, it remains the same. Workarounds: If I save the file, then close, and reopen it, everything is good again. An easier way: Text menu -> Reapply Text Styles. [Windows 10, Affinity Publisher 1.7.0.399]
  2. I use a font that has very small punctuation marks. I'd like to create a paragraph style that allows me to mix font styles--so that I can use one font for the letters and another font for all the punctuation. Does anyone know of a way to do this? Thanks.
  3. Hi all. I am frequently required to work using Maltese and other European languages, all of which contain a number of characters that are easily available via the glyphs palette. However, when I click/drag over a character in order to substitute the correct Maltese glyph, the glyph palette (currently) doesn't automatically update to the same font as the one I'm working with. The glyph will substitute as required but in a different typeface to the run of text. This means (obviously) I subsequently have to re-select the glyph and manually change the font/weight to match in with the surrounding type. It would be far more efficient if the glyph palette instantly mirrored the typeface, weight, size and any tracking/baseline shift adjustments automatically, as soon as the text to be amended was selected.
  4. Hi, I know a glyph selector has been requested a lot, but surprisingly it doesn't seem to be considered much of a priority. Is it already possible to select alternate characters, or will glyphs be included with "Text features" in the current Designer roadmap? Loving the apps, and excited for what's to come :) J.
  5. I got only black and white glyphs – no colors – when using color emoji SVGinOT font by Twitter (Unicode 10 emoji). Might be just Windows messing with me. Yet it works fine for me in Ai. Or is this just some kind of deplorable personal perversion of mine, or some behavioral infection – that I actually enjoy using these kind funky perks lately? I am rookie in publishing. Love your products. ☚ ☻✌
  6. I keep running into a strange (and annoying) problem when copy/pasting objects from Designer to Glyphs in that some geometry is lost in translation from Designer to Glyphs (see attached image, files.zip also provided). If I export to SVG and then import into Glyphs everything is fine (but this makes the process much more laborious), as is also the case when I convert the origin node to a smooth curve, etc. If I simply leave the origin node as is it appears that the node immediately after the origin node is omitted on copy/paste. I'm not sure if this is a Designer issue or Glyphs issue, but I thought I'd start here as I only have this problem when copy/pasting geometry from Designer. files.zip
  7. HI. Does AD have a feature simlar to Illustrator or InDesign where you can display all of the glyphs in any given font? This is very handy when needing an alternate glyph in your text.
  8. Hello, I'm very glad that we now have a glyphs browser, but I personally feel that its looks can be improved. Virtually all typefaces are made primarily for use on a light background, and to correctly evaluate a glyph I think the glyph browser should reflect this by having a white background with black glyphs. Right now the dark UI theme shows light glyphs on a dark background and the light UI theme shows grey type on a light background (which is better but lacks contrast). The font dropdown however does have black type on a white background in both themes, which I think is a good choice. Looking forward to your thoughts! Best, Bauke
  9. Hello I just wanted to suggest something that is very nice if you have a lot of fonts and you partially remember the name, or even if you remember the full name and want to jump directly to that font. To make the dropdown menu of fonts to act like a search box, so if I have the UB-Helvetica and start typing Helvetica, I will get a dropdown menu with the fonts that contain that (for example in my case I will get UB-Helvetic, Mg Helvetica, Helvetica etc). At the moment I can only type the name and jump to the font but it is not very helpful since it doesn't recognize spaces (so if I have a dozen fonts that are like PF Bodoni and type PF space Bodoni it will get me at first at PF and then jump to letter B) and many times I can only remember a part of the font's name. Also if it is not a way to open the full charmap of a font and insert something from there, can you add this too? I have some obsolete fonts from the 90s that work fine with English, but the Greek characters are registered elsewhere and I need to open glyphs and enter them one by one (in illustrator). I haven't found a way to do this so far.
  10. I can't find Glyphs in Affinity Design, for using font icon. Can you help me?
  11. I really a glyphs panel. So that I can select a specific glyphs. The Typography -> Show all font features are great. But if you have a font with a lot of option, or special display characters, or just need a special character. You can't select that. And, sidenote. In the typography panel, the tekst and checkbox are overlaying.
  12. 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?
  13. Hi guys, Just got Designer, trying to find my way around. I purchased an OTF from Creative Market, I got it because of the glyphs that came with it. But I can't find a glyphs panel or options in Designer. Hope you can help and steer me in the right direction! Cheers, Maggie
  14. I used to use the glyphs panel to check the character map and symbols fonts on illustrator, it did save a lot of time to see what was available, specially with fonts like font awesome etc... any chance of adding it?
  15. I have a file with a number of icons each on within its own artboard (originally created in Illustrator - it imports fine). With each artboard I have several layers; a grid (locked), a label (locked), a frame (no stroke/fill) and the icon (solid fill) itself. When I move the icons into Glyphs to create the glyphs/ligatures I typically copy both the frame and the icon enabling me to accurately position and scale the icon. This process has worked flawlessly for years using Illustrator, but I've run into a problem since I've moved to Affinity Designer. The frame (a square) is NEVER included in the copy/paste regardless of it being selected, filled, stroked, grouped with the icon on anything. What's even odder is that ANY square/rect appears not be copied over to Glyphs. Really unsure what's happening here, but have had to move back to Illustrator as I don't have time to debug this. I've attached the Affinity Designer file if it helps. icons.afdesign.zip

    Glyphs Studio

    Hi! Today icon fonts are a de-facto in UI design and there are tons of libraries available. It would be very useful to have a glyph palette or studio to list them all for quick&dirty usage in projects. Just a simple grid should work. Pick or double click to insert them in a text object. I know you love to do things "the very Serif way" so candies such as CSS escape code or hex code label for each character should be a well praised feature! :) Cheers!
  17. 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.
  18. Recently in my graphic design class we went over glyphs inside of Adobe Illustrator to adjust the printed text from text boxes. I'd like to see the same or equivalent feature in Affinity Designer.

  19. Hello just wondering if there's a way to bring in the glyphs panel for the use of a font. Thank you. Gerardo M.
