Hyphenation and columns in frame text tool

Recommended Posts

This has probably been requested before but I'll ask again if so. Designer has some excellent type capabilities; Glyphs, OpenType support, ligatures, space before and after paragraphs, etc. Working with text seems to fall apart for me though, without hyphenation and multiple columns (I won't bother to ask for linking text frames). Hyphenation is pretty basic and nearly impossible to set a proper paragraph without it. Multiple text columns are pretty basic and are frequently used in posters, flyers and other single page layouts. Why include Paragraph Styles when paragraph formatting is too limited to consider using it?

I understand that those features are available in Publisher which I may purchase one day, but having to add that to my workflow seems like a lot of unnecessary overhead for a couple of basic options. 

Please consider adding these two features in a future update.
