    Text Formatting

    My text in a text frame overwrites itself. It seems that the leading has disappeared. Where and how can I fix that?
  2. Arial MT keeps showing up in this document although I have deleted this font several month ago from my system https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/80898-where-are-my-arial-variants-gone/&tab=comments#comment-428159 Arial MT is now my [No style] character and paragraph DEF font. Any Idea how to get rid of it once for All
  3. This is the last drawing I have prepared with a 2.5 hour study. https://youtu.be/wbmRDfpI7k0
  4. I'm not sure if this is a bug on the Affinity (or Adobe's?) suite, or something else I'm not understanding. I'm betting on something I don't understand so I'd like to hear a word from someone knowledgeable in fonts. I've noticed the character leading default value is smaller and variable in all Affinity apps, while on Adobe with value is larger and fixed. On Adobe's software, no matter what font you choose, you will always get the same default leading value for a certain font size. Let's always use 18 pt for clarity sake. So in Adobe you'll always have a (21.6 pt) character leading value for a 18 pt font size, regardless of the font chosen. On Affinity for a 18 pt font size the leading will normally be (18 pt) too, but this value varies with the font chosen. I've only seen it going higher than (18 pt), but normally just a few decimal points. For example some fonts have a leading of (18.6 pt), others (18.4 pt). I have noticed an outlier though, Gabriola has a huge (30.6 pt) leading. For what it's worth, the Affinity values seem a lot closer to what I'm seeing in LibreOffice, for example Gabriola has a huge leading value in both. I'm not sure what to make of this... anyone knowledgeable in fonts can help me understand what's going on? Thanks!
  5. Mouse wheel scroll doesn't respond on the paragraph and character panels. You need to scroll dragging the scroll bar. Other panels (Layers, styles, color, etc.) are wheel scrollable without issues. Having in mind how long those two panels could be if all options expanded, this is a bit of nuisance. Specially on smaller screens.
  6. I’ve noticed that I can draw a line (nothing to do with text) then change its properties and the Outline Style in the Character Studio changes. See attached GIF. Also, changes to the Stroke and/or Colour properties of the line change the Outline Style in the Character Studio too. I don’t think these things should be connected as the Line properties for a line/curve should not have any effect on Characters that the object does not have. Or, to put it another way, why is the Character studio showing changes to the Line properties of something that does not contain text? Or, to expand on that a bit, why are the Character/Paragraph/Text Style studios active at all when the layer does not contain text? Have I misunderstood something basic?
  7. Hey guys, I did this video recently to share my knowledge and tips, how I design my characters. Thanks for watching
  8. In a bulleted list, if there's only one character left and I delete it, the bullet point sometimes also is deleted.
  9. Hi, Every time i change font Affinity freezes forcing me to force quit. Both from the top or from the "character" panel. Doing something wrong?

  11. Publisher 1.7.0.238. It would be useful to a lot of users if the "Special characters and glyphs" page of the Help could give: * what each character looks like (if possible); * a short explanation of what it does, or what it can/should be used for; * a good visual example of where it has been used. Some characters are fairly self-explanatory - "Page Number", "Copyright", etc. - but some, such as (but not limited to) "Soft Hyphen", "Sixth Space", "Zero-Width Non-Joiner" and "Punctuation Space" are meaningless to people without a good DTP/printing background. I'm sure there are lots of explanations around the web but it would be nice if users didn't have to search for them. Obviously the Help isn't finished yet, but it would be a shame if this sort of useful information was omitted.

    Character Design - Shading in Vector

  13. Hello folks, My name is Dennis. I created this pixelated self-portrait a few days ago. Started it in Dottable, a pixel-art app on a mobile phone, then traced it in Affinity Designer with the grid snap feature. Then I added a few grunge textures over masked areas, imported it into Affinity Photo, and finished it off with LUT filters and monochrome noise for a subtle paper-like feel. I like how precisely the applications work together and that you can add pixel-based textures directly in Affinity Designer without having to change the application, it integrates very fluidly into the workflow. Anyway, I hope you like the result. Dennis aka MrDoodlezz
  14. Help with this please. I can't get the paragraph or character windows to open up - they do nothing when clicked on. Doc attached. This version is AD for MAC 1.6.1 Is this a bug? character_paragraph.afdesign

    Blob Creature Character AD - vector

    Hey Affinity Forum, Just drawing and having fun with AD.
  16. Something I cannot find in Publisher is a right Indent Tab (Shortcut in indesign Shift-Tab) Which I use quite often in indesign. Why is this missing, and will you be adding this?
  17. When I click the 'Character' or 'Paragraph' button on the Context Toolbar in Affinity Designer 1.6.1, the corresponding panel is not displayed. The same is true if I select 'Text' > 'Show Character' or 'Text' > 'Show Paragraph' from the menu (or press ⌘T). 'Text' > 'Show Text Styles' and 'Text' > 'Show Glyph Browser' do not seem to do anything either. However, 'Text' > 'Show Typography' does work.
  18. There is a bug that is displayed in the font category of the affinity designer, which is quite different from the one in the font book. I've attached some screen shots that can identify the error, so I'd like to see if it could be resolved in the next version.

    Animatic

    So Affinity Designer, as it turns out, has a lot of potential for cel animation work. You can create a decent enough animatic in the bitmap persona using layers for onion skin, then just stick it all together in your editor of choice. My only request - could we have an "export selected layers as PNGs" feature please? That would save me having to go through toggling transparency and exporting one-at-a-time. animatic_scene2.mp4

  23. Hello folks! Long time without posting here, but I promise I'll be checking more often since I've missed a lot that happened in the forums these past months! Today I wanna share a new character design tutorial we've just published a few days ago on our website. Hope you guys enjoy it and as always, any feedback would be more than welcome! Happy weekend!

  24. Letters with a round form should extend past the grid line (see 2.png for correct alignment). AD aligns the rounded forms to the baseline instead (3.png). Grid 8 / 2 Text field height: 24 Leading/Baseline: 16 (illustrator) -4 (AD) I might be doing it the wrong way, so if there's another way of doing it, let me know.
  25. Version 1.5.2 Windows Not able to find the Character Panel from the Studio View even after Checked and Unchecked. Still does not solve the issue...? Pls anyone can respond..?
