Affinity Designer (1.8.3) can't type Japanese texts on Catalina(10.15.1).

Recommended Posts

I have same problem on MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) - Affinity Designer 1.8.3 - Mac OS Catalina 10.15.5.

But, there's no problem on my old one: MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) - Affinity Designer 1.8.3 - Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6.

I suppose there's some compatibility problem with new Magic Keyboard. If possible, please check on MacBook with new Magic Keyboard.

Hi kage,

As you've seen we've had this reported a few time, but we've never been able to replicate it - even using an Apple USB JIS keyboard. Unfortunately due to the current situation I don't have access to that keyboard right now. Even with that we still don't have access to a 2019 Japanese MacBook Pro.

Would you be able to attach a screenshot of the System Preferences > Keyboard > Input Sources section on both the 2019 and 2013 MacBook Pro please? If you enable an on-screen keyboard does it work if you click the button on the on-screen keyboard?

Hi Sean,
Thank you for your reply and I solved the problem. 

I compared the settings on my old and new MBP.
Then, I turned on "Romaji" Input Mode over Japanese Input Source, Affinity Designer works correctly.

I found out that if I don't remove the English input mode as well, it doesn't work properly when the input mode is set to ABC (English).
Other softwares like Adobe Illustrator, works properly with the original settings (ABC(English) + Japanese("Romaji" is off)).
