  1. Tap on the Designer icon (top left) to display the Persona menu. In the Export persona, tap on the the ellipsis (‘…’) or the ‘hamburger’ icon for further options.
  2. You could buy v2 from the Affinity Store, retrieve your designs and then request a refund. https://store.serif.com/help/#returns
  3. If you didn’t install the font, it isn’t hugely surprising that the app reported it as missing when trying to use it!
  4. If you don’t mind working your way through a series of questions, the ‘Fonts by Appearance’ route offered by Identifont may prove helpful. http://www.identifont.com/identify.html
  5. FontSpring Matcherator is another possibility, but my current favourite is What Font Is.
  6. How did you install the font? Does it work correctly with other software?
  7. You’re a glutton for punishment with that hair, aren’t you! By the way, I think the title needs a comma after “Down” (unless someone is being instructed to put the knife “down Sandra”).
  8. The diagonal of a document with those dimensions is about 150 feet, so the typical viewing distance is going to be enormous and 144 DPI is a huge waste of pixels.
  9. “If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish, he will bore you to death with endless fishing stories and photos of himself on Instagram holding fish.”
  10. Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @Drye08. Which Affinity app(s) do you have, and what is your operating system? What are the make and model of your printer? You should be able to use a tiling option to split up your large drawing into overlapping pieces for printing on a smaller sheet size.
  11. Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @Reckonyx. It’s possible, but it’s far from straightforward! Edit: Oops, sorry, I see that you’re using Photo (which doesn’t have an Appearance panel). I don’t think it’s possible to do what you want if you don’t have Designer, other than by duplicating the stroke and carefully adjusting the dashes and gaps to fit in with the original stroke.
  12. That correction should fix the resolution problem, unless you’re using the term “resolution” to refer to something else. Clarity will depend, at least in part, on the resampling method used: for enlargements, try Lanczos3 or bicubic.
  13. The aspect ratios are different. For the smaller image to have the same aspect ratio as the larger one, the short side would need to be 495 pixels, not 463.
  14. It’s by design that you can’t long-press with an Apple Pencil for this functionality in the Affinity apps. I believe it’s something to do with tolerance issues.
  15. I’m not MikeW (obviously!) but Peter Kahrel’s free scripts are readily available online. https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesign/batch_convert.html
  16. Is it really ‘afub’ or did you lose the ‘p’ from the filename extension when composing your message? Can you open the file if you copy or move it to a different location?
  17. Adobe has disabled support for authoring with Type 1 fonts. https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/fonts/kb/postscript-type-1-fonts-end-of-support.html
  18. Please try to dissuade those who belong to the first group! I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks that 18-¼ looks like a subtraction (=17¾). I suspect there are too many occurrences of the word ‘not’ in there. Anyway, if you’re looking for stacking or ‘nut’ fractions then you need to find a font that includes support for them.
  19. That’s a statement of your opinion, not a description of a bug. This thread belongs in the Feedback section of these forums.
  20. How do you determine what should be regarded as ‘intuitive’? In any specialist field there is jargon that simply has to be learned, and it seems to me that tracking and kerning are pretty basic concepts here.
  21. Can the Affinity apps open PDFs created according to the PDF/A specification? Exporting such PDFs from the Affinity apps isn’t currently possible, as far as I’m aware.
  22. Your licence is for version 1, not version 1.x, so you are free to choose any version up to and including 1.10.6. Available Publisher downloads go back as far as 1.7.1, and available Photo and Designer downloads go all the way back to 1.6.5. https://store.serif.com/update/windows/designer/1 https://store.serif.com/update/windows/photo/1 https://store.serif.com/update/windows/publisher/1
  23. Furthermore, QA/Support staff can and do add bug-tracking issue numbers as topic tags for the forums threads where those bugs are reported and discussed, making it possible to do a tag search to find related threads.
