I am using an OpenType font called Belle Allure available here : https://www.dafont.com/fr/belle-allure.font more specifically the Belle Allure CM In Publisher, the ligature and the other features of this font works fine as long as the word written is using a single colour. As a teacher, I mix 2 colours in words to emphasize sounds or syllables. When mixing colours, ie I write the complete word in black then I change the colour of one or two specific letters, then the ligatures are broken between letters of different colours. I tried all the variations in the Typography palette, but no change. See the third text block in the Publisher screenshot attached . In Word or in TextEdit, I don't have this issue. See attached. Any idea? macOS 10.13.6, Publisher 1.7.2, Word 2016 Edit: I tried copy/paste from Word or TextEdit to a new text block in Publisher, but no improvement.
I just discovered, to my chagrin, that PagePlus X9 doesn't support ligatures, those special characters which, in Open Type fonts, "stand in" for certain letter combinations, usually those involving 'f'. See the png below for an example. Now, I know that only old-school has-beens like me care about such things, and I also know that there's nothing to be done about (legacy) PagePlus. But InDesign does it with elan, and it would behoove the Affinity team to at least consider doing it in Publisher. It's a nice touch that veritably screams professionalism.
