Dear Affinity Team,

I love your program and still use the 10 days trial version. As I often work with Text - used illustrator for many years - I need a auto-hyphenation tool.

 

Do I just not find it or is it not included in the Affinity designer?

And if not - are there any plan implementing it?

 

Thanks for your reply.

I am really amazed. I never thought AD did not have this feature.

Please give it to us soon!

There are quite a many languages it should support...

 

This is why we have been patient. But we don’t want to wait for another year.

I would like to add: if the program is going to give you the ability to justify text on both the right and left margin, auto-hyphenation is really a big deal. It feels unfinished.

 

p.s. It's amazing what you've done with a $50 dollar program. I bought Affinity Photo mostly just to support you efforts. I would like to forget that Adobe existss.

Be aware that Affinity will use soft hyphens if you add them manually.

 

Does not work with your “Insert Filler Text”. So not useful to present professional typography. Will there be more options very soon?

Filler text does not behave like normal text anyway.

Soft hyphens are very useful in creating professional typography, it is just that hand tuning text is time consuming and autohyphenation would save a lot of time. That is, if your designs have a lot of text. AD is meant for short documents so soft hyphens are ok-ish.

There is no ready shortcut for soft hyphen which is weird as it is used a lot. I set it to be alt+cmd+-
