Font causing text box to break up words

Recommended Posts

Seems to be an issue with my textbox where it just cuts up words (see screenshot) if I use a specific font. Turning hyphenation on and off doesn't work, nor does resizing the textbox. Also tried flicking between all the Align options and it doesn't stop it from slicing up the text. It's a free font called Caveat, as the text corrects itself if I change the font (but then breaks again if I switch back to Caveat). Any reason why the font would be causing this? Happens on both stable and beta versions.

I used this font on the old beta (i.e. pre-release) and didn't have this issue.

Do you still experience the issue if you turn off the ‘Contextual Alternates’ OpenType feature? (It’s on by default, and it provides a more ‘handwritten’ look by ensuring that, for example, the two instances of ‘t’ in ‘without’ are slightly different.)

That fixed it, nice one! Didn't realise that could cause issues like that :-/ (or is it a bug and it shouldn't cause those issues?)
