Problems with text length

May 13, 2020 at 2:16am
I make the text length flexible and added letter spaces in the Sketch file. When I converted it to PPT, flexible length was made as fixed-length, and the length is not correct, it seems that there are some compatibility problems with Chinese maybe.

Could you please DM a sample Chinese slide with dummy content along with fonts so I could recreate the bug and look into it. Thanks 😊
Could you try disabling ligatures:
Here’s how you can disable ligatures in Sketch:
  • Go to View → Show Fonts
  • In the Fonts window click on Typography
  • Go into the Ligatures section and uncheck the options
Please try this sketch fire. I've set the Typography as your guide, but when I close the Typography window and open it again, the checkbox will be checked automatically.
The font I used is Ping Fang SC, witch was made for Chinese by Apple.
