Special Characters cannot be disabled, if enabled in opened Publisher document

Recommended Posts

Hi,

there has been some discussion whether it should be considered a bug that Designer doesn’t allow to disable special characters in documents that were saved with special characters enabled in Publisher.

I have the strong suspicion that this must be an oversight. At least, I would think that this is very different from, say, the fact that we don’t have text on a path available in Affinity Photo, as it belongs to the very basic text editing functions. To me, it’s a bug. So would you please consider

  • either to disable special characters by default in Designer, such that they won’t show up when Publisher documents are opened, regardless of the way they were saved,
  • or add the menu entry Show special characters to Designer.

Thank you for having a look. :)

Alex

I'd like to have this option in AD. This is a good feature which should not be ignored. And I believe adding this feature is not very challenging to the developer/programmer of this software.

Since special characters never appear in printed output or exports, for me not being able to hide them in AD (or AP) is at most a minor annoyance, but of the two suggested fixes, the second one seems like the best choice.

Hi A_B_C,

This is something I spotted last week and has been raised with development.

You're awesome! Thanks a lot for paying attention to the users :12_slight_smile:
