Letters joining together

Same here. Additionally, if I switch between Word and PDN and change the fonts to Semilla, the cursor disappears or stop blinking.

 

Also, the characters are displayed in the Word as in image below, while the other characters are displayed in PDN.

The Semilla font has a few styles for same character, but the codes of characters are different.

 

If I Copy the text from Word and Paste in PDN the result is the same.

That's actually the way the font is supposed to be drawn. If you go into the font properties in Word and enable "ligatures" you'll see it render the same way. I imagine they disable that by default in Office because they have to make sure to not change the way documents look just because a system-bundled font now includes a new feature.

That's explains that then.... I went searching for that setting in Office 2007 but didn't find it in the short minute I searched.

And noticed it only now after years of using paint.net.

 

Could it maybe be a toggleable setting for the text tool? Or would it just be better to start getting used to ligatures?

You can avoid the ligatures by inserting something called a non-breaking space.

 

I found one that you can use with relative ease:

 

1. Start the "Character Map" utility (comes with Windows, either search in Start or do a Run on "charmap")

2. Enable the checkbox for "Advanced view" at the bottom

3. Select the Calibri font at the top

3. Type "non" in the Search For box at the bottom and press enter

4. The only character available to be selected is "U+200C: Zero Width Non-Joiner" (it says this at the bottom of the window)

5. Click the "Select" button and then the "Copy" button

6. Go back to Paint.NET, put the cursor in-between the "f" and "i" (or any other character where you'd like to break the ligature) and press Ctrl+V (Edit->Paste)
