Hyphenation not working correctly

Recommended Posts

Designer does not completely support automatic hyphenation.

You can specify a hyphenation language in the Character panel, but the setting to enable Automatic Hyphenation (in the Paragraph panel or paragraph text styes) is available only in Publisher. If you want automatic hyphenation to work in Designer you need to open the file in Publisher and enable it there.

What sense should that make including hyphenation in Affinity Designer when it doesn't work automatically? I don't have Affinity Publisher and I'm for sure not planning to buy it only to have this "feature".

I tend to agree that both settings should be absent, or both present.

Meanwhile, if you do get Publisher you get other items that are relevant and very useful if you're using enough text that you might need automatic hyphenation: text flow, baseline grids, find/replace, and more. You also get StudioLink, which lets you easily switch among the Publisher, Designer, and (if you own Photo) the Photo Persona.

What sense makes a non-automatic hyphenation? What do I tell the programm to do with this checkbox?

Besides: Affinity Publisher does not get it right, too:
