How to show non-English text

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a big problem...

 

I'd like to be able to type in Japanese using the text tool in Affinity Designer, but whenever I use the text tool and type in Japanese, it gives me these yellow blocks... I think that Affinity Designer is available in Japanese as well, so I was wondering if this was a glitch, or if Japanese text is not supported in the English language software? I need to use Japanese in my work so it would be most helpful..... thank you!

Hi Mimosica,

 

To write in a different language you will need to have a font that supports that language. However with Japanese because the text goes from top to bottom the program doesn't currently support it. However Japanese is a language that we are working on implementing in the future. I hope this helps :)

But you can type a single letter and press the enter/return key and the next letter will be placed below the first. Repeat this for each letter. Then adjust the spacing between the characters. I use this method to create vertical signs. Should work fine for Japanese characters as well.
