[Fixed] Font Lavanderia Display issue

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @sofux. :)

 

With the affected text selected on the canvas, press Cmd+T to display the Character panel. Click on the 'a' icon in the Typography section to disable the Contextual Alternates feature.

Thanks that solved the problem. I wasn't aware of this functionality. Is it enabled by default?

In what context do I need to enable/disable the Contextual Alternates?

The feature is correctly active by default, but I think it's being mishandled here. If I select the word Jane and leave the feature enabled, I get the 'end' form for the e (as expected); if I select the word James, I still get the 'end' form for the e even though it isn't at the end of the word; and if I select the word Lavanderia, I don't get the 'end' form for the e but, as in the other two examples, I get the 'end' form for the a (which again is not as I would expect).

Hey sofux,


I've passed this to development as I am in agreement with Alfred. The results are not what I would expect when Contextual Alternates is enabled. I've compared the results with another app and they are different. I'll update you once I get feedback.

We have now resolved the problem and will make the fix available in the next Mac release.

 

I'm pleased to see that it's also fixed in the latest beta releases for the Windows apps.
