I am hoping this is something simple and I have gone through the forums and can't find anyone else with a simillar problem.
I can't get corel draw x6 to create a "FF" as in Coffee. It happens in most fonts and as soon as you type ff they disappear from view and don't print. I can go into x5 and type it then copy and paste it into x6 as graphic text and it works fine. The only way I have been able to over come it is to put another charachter inbetween the f's then make it tiny and no colour and there you go I can create Coffee, Geoff, Affable and so on. Obviously this isn't ideal.
I have used corel since the early days and really like it and can use it pretty well but this one is just stumping me.
Try disabling "Replace text while typing" from Tools > Options... > Workspace > Text > QuickCorrect...
Which dictionary is selected for QuickCorrect?
This is a new feature in X6, which for the first time supports ligatures. Information about them is here in the help file.
It does say "Some OpenType fonts may appear to support features that are unsupported." so it looks as if you may have found such a font.
Which font(s) are you using?

Harry is right. Select your text object and turn off the ligature button in the character docker. That should fix your problem.
I'd like to verify what is going on however because what you see is very unusual. What font are you using?
Hi Harry & Claude
Thanks for the help that sorted it straight away.
It was happening with the majority of fonts, Arial was OK but just standard - not black, narrow etc also some random others but Avantgarde dit it.
Actually, I am trying it now with the ligature turned back on and I am struggling to find more than a couple that it wouldn't do it on.
It's odd as it only happened with FF and no other double letters, which is a bit awkward when you are doing a menu board for a coffee shop.
Anyway thanks for the help and well done with the fast reply
