When I define 2 alternatives in a Character Variation feature, Affinity shows 4 in the menu.
The first (default) entry is repeated at the end.
When I define 16 alternative glyphs, affinity shows 18 in the menu. Example:

I also wonder if, and where, tooltip, sampletext and parameters are going to show up in the interface:


    nameAmpersand collection
    tooltipI love ampersands
    sampletextA&B, c&d, 1&2
    - Aligns with capitals
    - Small for Small Caps 
    - Italic e scripty swashy
(InDesign completely crashes if fonts contain Character Variations built according to the specifications on their website haha)

Hi Luc(as),

Would it be possible for you to attach a sample of one of your fonts you are encountering this with to our internal Dropbox account using the link below please? I've been through nearly all of fonts and cannot find any that are listing Character Variants. Unfortunately they're nearly all Stylistic Alternates.

Hi Sean, thanks for testing. Yes I can send a font, and I think have a few more issues. Would it be possible to get into mail contact with an Affinity font specialist? luc(at)lucasfonts.com
