Can't display Chinese Names of Chinese Fonts

Recommended Posts

I have replay AI & Photoshop with Designer & Photo, I really love them.

Only it can‘t display Chinese Names of Chinese fonts, and all fonts are mixed up. I can't find them easily.

It displays Bopomofo (maybe English name), actually it's very hard to match bopomofo with Chinese name.

So what can I do?

Thanks.

Ok. Heres the thing. I have a few concerns with displaying non english font names.
My workflow could sometimes contain several languages, English, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Arabic and Persian. Im aware affinity doesnt support arabic/persian and other rtl languages in a usable manner 😓 dont ask about the hassle of work around i go through for that. That being said i’ve been using affinity suit for a little short from 5 years now and the foreign language fonts have always been displayed this way. (As SeanZ’s attached photo) i believe the correct way of showing font is by their name in their own language as created and intended. But there are some designers who are not familiar with the name of the font in foreign language, so having an english name for them could be a necessity. My suggestion is to have the font being previewed by their own name in their own language, while having an option to revert it back all english names for them In settings or preference. This way people could do their work as they are comfortable with. 
 

Ps. Is there any plan on right to left language support? That would be great.
