Type rendering causing problems

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use the font Chartwell, which uses ligatures to create graphs, and the way Affinity (Designer+Publisher) are handling it is causing it not to work if I try to colorize them. The font is meant to be used this way to make creating charts much easier.

(This works as it's meant to in InDesign)

The all black version is how it should look, but when I try to add color to any of the numbers it breaks:

Same here - it is really unfortunate that Affinity's implementation of discretionary ligatures do not work correctly when creating diagrams using the Chartwell font. Coloring and element size seems to be okay but the positions are incorrect - see attached pictures.

This problem exists at least in Affinity Designer and Publisher - so it's most likely an issue in the underlying {shared) implementation.

Is there a better place to report issues with Affinity products than here?
