Japanese Furigana (Ruby - ルビ)


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

How can I add Furigana in Japanese Kanji?

 

Furigana or Ruby are text above japanese text to easily read kanji.

 

This is and option that we have in Microsoft Word, Indesign, Illustrator or Simple Furigana for Mac...

I also tried to COPY an text from Word and PASTE on Affinity but all words were wrong. >post-23028-0-02926600-1496415831_thumb.png

 

I could only insert with a little success from this site: http://furigana.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/index.cgi

That is a Furigana Generator with HTML >post-23028-0-81212800-1496415991_thumb.png

 

Also tried to change language to japanese but couldn't find it too. >post-23028-0-99018900-1496416141_thumb.png

Hi Pedrodias,

 

We don't support Furigana automatically I'm afraid. If you would like to add it to your document you would need to do it manually using the Text Tool.

 

Thanks

Callum

Hello! I would also like to see this implemented. However, I noticed this is in the questions section of the forum rather than the feature request section (presumably, the feature requests section didn't exist when this was originally posted). Would it be worthwhile to open a new topic in the feature request section? Phonetic guide text is a fairly important component of multiple East Asian languages, and I would be interested in seeing more discussion on this potential feature.
