Hi @loyukfai,

We do not tend to reply to feature requests. 

As for your actual question, I'm not really sure I understand it correctly. 

When you say "should not appear at the beginning of a new line" , is that based on the grammar rules? For example, the same would apply for English. You should not start a sentence with a full stop or a semicolon. But that does not stop you from doing it. Technically, you can type whatever you want and start a sentence with whatever character you wish. If it makes sense or not, it's a different story.

Thanks,

Gabe.

Yes, basically it's more or less the same as in English, e.g. commas and full stops shouldn't appear at the beginning of a line, unless you specifically make it so.

Right now, Affinity Designer and Publisher doesn't recognize these rules, perhaps because they do not recognize the Asian punctuation marks?

See the link below for more details:

Thanks!

That would not be a bug in this case. Even Microsoft word allows you to put them in the front of a sentence. A text editor app should not prevent you from typing certain characters. What you're looking for is a spell checker. 

We have closed this issue as "by design".

@loyukfaiYou can add the tag by yourself under the topic title.

It seems Asian typography feature has lower priority on Serif's roadmap.
But people more than in Europe and America is waiting for Affinity as Adobe alternative.
Only these typography feature is the bottleneck as you mentioned.

@loyukfaiDo you know any Affinity user group in China by any chance?
I would like to share information each other regarding Asian language problem.
I belong to a Japanese Affinity user group and we are having same problem with Chinese.
