Issue in changing figure styles

Recommended Posts

Even in version .257 Publisher shows a strange behaviour in changing from default to old-style figures. In one font the old-style figures only show completely after having typed the letter 'f'. In another font a four-digit number only turns to old-style figures after having type the letter 'c' (see screenshots).846473920_Bildschirmfoto2019-03-11um19_08_20.png.f714bc072a39cbab8ac94a4fcaac50f8.png1420498922_Bildschirmfoto2019-03-11um19_12_23.png.4a20daa999e1d92008c41dd7bee1d37c.png

What fonts are used in your examples above?
Are the default figures in those fonts the lining figures?

How have you applied the old style figures?
In the paragraph style?

 

Default figures are the lining ones, and for activating the old style figures I usually use the typography panel.

But anyway, this feature should run more robustly.

There must be something else going on here.

I tested with Kis Antiqua Pro, Rhythmus Pro, and Bookmania.
Had no problems with old style figures with any of them.

Perhaps you could make a short video to show the Affinity guys what is happening.

It might also help if we could have a copy of a .afpub file that demonstrates the problem.

Affinity Publisher .337 on the Mac. Also in this version the issue continues with the fonts mentioned above.

I wonder because in both Designer and Photo these fonts, with oldstyle figures activated, run absolutely normal.
