  1. There's more about this topic here: Many identical font styles of a specific font present in the character panel menu
  2. You can check for embedded fonts in a PDF document using command line: strings path/filename.pdf | grep FontName
  3. I can't use the clone tool on a layer inside a group, while the group's vector mask is active. I also noticed that a Merge Down of two layers inside the masked group would result in an empty layer when the mask is active. Here attached is a sample document. Trying to reconstruct the missing base of the device in the "Image" layer I'm applying the Clone Brush (using "Current Layer and Below") in the "Clone" layer. This "Clone" layer is the result of a Merge Down of two original layers, but I could merge them only after turning off the mask. Anyway, the Clone Brush seems to sample and draw only when the Curve mask is turned off, too. CloneBrush_MergeDown_Mask.afphoto
  4. @MEB Same here, I have Designer and Photo installed on my computer, not Publisher, and the document was created and developed on Designer only.
  5. @MEB I had the same situation as @CPritchard, the background well in the Character Panel was set to transparent; I set it to a colour and then back to transparent to give it a try, but that only affected the line of text, not the whole text box. Once I clicked the Revert to defaults button, after @walt.farrell's suggestion everything was back to normal
  6. I tried to understand what happened, but I was just adding text fields above artboards in order to export the whole document with artboards' titles included. At some point, while dragging a text box, I started seeing the black background
  7. Thanks Walt, much appreciated. Any clue about how did that happen in the first place?
  8. Just started happening to me, too. It's only happening in one document, I tried making a new document and text works fine. But I can't put new text in the document I'm working on without a black background any more. macOS 10.15.6 Affinity Designer 1.8.4
  9. Please check "Custom Levels" and "Brightness/Contrast" layers on both Photoshop and Affinity to see the difference. Levels applied in Photoshop only to Red, Green and Blue channels (not to Master) are not present in Affinity Photo. Brightness/Contrast applied in Photoshop (with the "Legacy" checkbox on) have different values and a completely different look. custom_levels.psd
  10. Affinity Designer Help states: "To copy control handle length/direction from another curve's node: Drag a node from one curve directly over another curve's node and release. After a short pause, the node's control handles will match that of the 'target' node." Shouldn't the release happen after the short pause? "Drag a node from one curve directly over another curve's node; after a short pause the node's control handles will match that of the 'target' node; release."
  11. alt/option clicking the collapse Icon (as it works in many applications and systems) would be a good way to go
  12. It does appear in the history as "Change export scale properties" after you set it. The only problem is having to click somewhere else to apply the change or it won't take effect before clicking Done. (I don't need to change the document setup when I want the original at 300dpi and the exported image at 72 for the web, for example.)
  13. If you type a new value for the "Exported DPI" in Export Persona and click the Done it doesn't make the change (the history panel shows no change in fact). I need to click somewhere else or press the Tab key on the keyboard in order to have the change accepted before clicking the Done button (this time the history panel shows the change).
