Missing Asian Punctuation Support


Recommended Posts

I think people requesting CJK support on this forum underestimated the complexities and amount of efforts that are required to implement properly CJK typesetting features. These are very fundamental and significant functions of the Adobe products where they excel. And it's not like Affinity/Serif can catch up in a short period of time in this regard, especially if this issue is not prioritized. Thus I do not foresee the arrival of those features in the near future, which makes it almost impossible to use for pro work for projects with CJK texts. It's a shame as the apps themselves are really handy to use in comparison to the Adobe products.

When a product that sells for the cost of one or two months' subscription of another, shortcomings are to be expected...

One option, if the market is big enough, is to charge extra for advanced CJK typesetting features.

Cheers.

I share your view on making a CJK edition, as Adobe did in the 1990s with its Japanese company, the result of which would be a game changer for Affinity as a player in the Asian market.
