Not currently, no. We probably will at some point but I've no idea when. We do plan to provide a better version of the "Access All Alternates" OpenType feature, which may help, but that relies on the font designers implementing it.

 

 

 

 

@maschinsky - Can you get this to work?.. won't work here, but I'm also running the trial. Not sure if there's some limitations, but the "characters of current font" won't work here  :(

Some applications display the glyphs only for Normal/Regular font or better said -- non-italic ones. It would be very convenient if Affinity software displays the glyphs from ALL members of the typeface family because, especially for Macedonian users, there are some specific glyphs for our language in italic fonts.

As a type designer and graphic designer I would appreciate this option too, it is far easier to access glyphs which are not available on keyboard.

I was wondering the same question the there day that was working in a illustration and I needed to find specific glyphs in dingbat fonts. I would be very handy to have this option in the future.

 

By the way, maybe can be useful the workaround I used. Go to Font Book App, select a font and choose the full repertoire view, the copy and paste the glyph you need in a text frame.

 

Hope It would be of help.

I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
