A couple of issues regarding the glyph browser.

1. It seems that to add into the document a character one needs to double click the character in the glyph browser. Fortunately I am alright with that, but some people can have a problem with double clicking.

Whilst keeping double clicking for the convenience of many users, could you possibly add below the panel a button labelled "Insert selected character into text" that operates in parallel please, so that a user of the software may either double click or click the button as he or she chooses?

2. Today I was using a font that I made that has one and only one character in the Private Use Area.

When I looked for that character under the All selection it was not displayed. Yet when I looked under the Private Use Area selection it was there.

I have other fonts that I have made that have many character in the Private Use Area and those I have used in Affinity Publisher have the Private Use Area characters displayed with the All selection.

Is this a bug?

The font is attached.

Thank you for your reply.

I checked again but it is not displayed for me.

I am using Windows 10.

Are you using Windows or a Mac please?

As there are two different finding can some other readers check this please and report their findings in this thread, stating whether they are suing Windows or a Mac please?

To avoid having to remember to include that information when you post, you can put your system specs in your forum signature. To do this, go to your Account Settings page where you’ll find a ‘Signature’ link.

Thank you.

I have now added that information.

I was intending to post this to try it out, but I have since noticed that it has acted retrospectively on my previous posts already.

Which works unless one has shut off viewing signatures. Which I have done as there are a few members who have extremely long signatures.

Two thoughts:

1. It also doesn't help anyone viewing the forums on a small screen, as the responsive forum design omits the signatures.

2. You can hide specific user's signatures. It doesn't have to be all or none.

Yes for number 1. I usually peruse the forum using either phone or tablet. And switch to the desktop only to post screen shots or verify something.

As for number 2, I chose to simply hide 'em all. Chalk it up to continuity of the viewing experience.
