I need to change the text in an affinity file from English to Kartuli (Georgian). When I add "ახალი სიცოცხლე ცენტრი" It just puts boxes where each individual letter goes. How can I add custom language?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

When you add text (either Artistic or Frame Text) one of the settings in the Context Toolbar is the name of the font to use. It sounds like the font you've chosen does not support those letters. Just highlight that text and then change the font shown in the Context Toolbar to one that does support them.

Funny, they work in most of my other programs. 

Other applications may substitute fonts when you enter characters not supported in the designated font.
What font are you using?
Does it support the language?

Please attach your test document so others can also see/test what is happening.

Sorry, here's the file! Someone on the FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/AffinityPhotoTipsTricksTuts

posted this, "copied "ახალი სიცოცხლე ცენტრი" and pasted into a "new text line"..."

It worked. I guess I just needed to create a new text line rather than opening previous one. 

Attaching the font used, and the file. (working version as well now!)
