  1. JoeISP

    Affinity Designer for Windows - 1.7.2

    Thank you!
  2. Photopea and InkScape are good workarounds for the missing distort feature, but this tool is very sorely lacking. I was really hoping it would show up in the 1.7 betas, but alas, the workarounds continue.
  3. Having the choice to convert to curves or replace font would be ideal.
  4. @Mark Ingram thanks for looking at this.
  5. Update: I trimmed my system fonts down to around 2,400 (not done yet,) and voila, everything is showing in Publisher Beta 1.7 (which had the same symptoms as Designer and Photo 1.7). Adding fonts using FontBase manager and so far so good. The take away from all this is: there is a bug where Affinity 1.7 apps can only see so many fonts.
  6. @wigglepixel Thank you - Hopefully they squash the bug soon, but that's some good info. I'm a Mac guy at heart and this is a Windows work machine, so I'm hoping I can get this to work so I can get 1.7 back on this machine. I just downloaded FontBase to give it a try. I'll post here if it makes any difference. Thanks again.
  7. Also tried clearing Windows 10 font cache, did not help.
  8. @GabrielM Is this something that has been forwarded to the dev team? Until we have an actual resolution to this, I can't move to 1.7
  9. Thanks @RonR I'm definitely not looking forward to the culling. Also - to tag a name directly, type "@" then the persons name without a space after it like you would on any social media platform.
  10. @GabrielM Sorry I missed this earlier. I have 5,199 installed. I know it could use some pruning, but that's a fairly time consuming process I hadn't planned on doing, but will attempt to do as soon as time allows. Given the info in this thread, is this something that could be reported to the development team for further inspection?
  11. Rolling back both Photo and Designer to 1.6 and all fonts were available. I uninstalled ALL Affinity software, (very sad,) and just did a fresh install of Designer 1.7 and again, not all fonts available. This, along with my experience makes me think that may be the problem. Perhaps a bug or intentional limitation on the number of fonts . I currently have 5,199 fonts installed. @RonR how many fonts do you have currently running to where you can add a font and it shows up in 1.7?
  12. Several things to report: I rolled back Photo to 1.6.5.135 and all fonts are showing! I'm going to do the same with Designer now because this is our daily use software to help avoid being held over a barrel by Adobe. I installed latest 1.7 beta for Designer I still had and same problem - no new fonts showing. Uninstalled. So there is definitely a bug in all Affinity 1.7x software I've tried (Designer, Designer beta, Photo, & Publisher beta) for this particular Win10 machine at least.
  13. I have a Font Viewer but no font manager apps. Just a random thought: is there a limit to the number of fonts Affinity apps can see? My next step is going to be rolling back Photo to the last 1.6 version and seeing if that helps.
  14. Negative. I tried both Designer and Photo as suggested. I also tried renaming 1.0 to 1.0.backup then uninstalling and reinstalling Photo. Same problem persists. I even tried Publisher 1.7.0.376 beta and again, same issue with the same fonts. Is it a registry thing?
