  1. Yeah, Helvetica Now Variable for just $576 it’s such a bargain!! Instabuy!
  2. Can it be so that the group of head-developers in the Serif company is too old, too stubborn, and, is born in the 1960’s with pretty old knowledge? Maybe time to bring in the new generation developer with fresh competent education and a higher motivation? If now BlackMagicDesign company can make the incredible Davinci Resolve to four different platforms, and, have a great software full of technology that is new & appealing, why can’t Serif do more?? Everything here is just speculation - it’s just mr Dawson that know the whole true here…
  3. I can’t understand this struggle to make Affinity Suite run on Linux… Wouldn’t be better to buy an cheap real win laptop instead?
  4. This is an isolated thing - just that variable font seems unnecessary… If it had five other axes/axis it would be a different usability… Sometimes I think caved people could be more happy then we - nowadays people is depressed if they can’t afford a new 3000$ iPad or Mac…
  5. Ok, but, do we need such a gimmick font? No. No.Nooo…
  6. Don’t pretend to be funny - why should that be another app on the iPad that has this function?? Serif as a company (clever people) is making so many other functionality on iPad that’s not present on another app, so, Serif have the knowledge to add this pretty easy if they want, but they refuse…
  7. Hold on now - what I mean is that this “Move/Duplicate” feature isn’t just an advanced AI high tech feature, it’s something that has been around for three decades… That’s why I don’t understand why this couldn’t be present on the iPad platform as well… Also, the new font categories that sorts out different fonts, like variable font, that’s something I really wants on my iPad. In the same time, I’m blessed that I can run Affinity Suite on all three platforms, but, there’s certainly users that heavily trust in the iPad platform…
  8. Ha! So, the lack of the RETURN key on iPad is what’s hold Serif off that functionality?? I fully understand that some functions is left out, like Book feature and so on, but, the v.2.3 feature Move/Duplicate is something Xara had already in 1995, so, iPad should perfectly fix this also…
  9. I don’t mean that the iPad Affinity Suite isn’t great, they are, but, I going in on details, functions pretty new to desktop that is left out on iPad… One of them is this function Copy/Duplicate/Move:
  10. Pretty tragic that Serif is holding off so many changes to Affinity Suite for desktop to iPad... As an example, the new thing that we can group fonts in Mac/Win, but not on iPad... But, there's so many things here and there that is desktop only, that's sucks...
  11. But, to be honest, Shantell isn’t cut like a real italic font, just a regular font slanted…
  12. I’ll confused here - is that really a single variable font on the market that offer both regular and real italic? I understand that almost everyone here knows what an italic font is, but, I meet some people that think that italic is just an regular font with some angle on it - so, is that a font that offer real italic and regular in one file (a real cut italic)?
  13. I can also answer this (last sentence) - even when using a separate Italic variable font, it’s messy when using the axes, it goes pretty soon to non-italic and can’t be changed… MacOS 14.5 beta4…
  14. I see the axes 'Grade' for both Roboto Serif and Amstelvar on my MacBook Pro...
