  1. Typography is one of the most important(if not the most important) factor determining the quality of visual communication. I’ve always had trouble finding the right typeface. Wasting countless hours browsing various websites in search of "the one" that I currently want to use. I came up with an idea to create a list of free high-quality typefaces that you can use when the client’s budget doesn’t allow the use of paid ones. Typography is a tough nut to crack especially at the beginning of your journey, so I prepared a list with only good positions. ● Full version: https://fircyk.gumroad.com/l/fontslist Free version: (just put 0 in the price box) https://fircyk.gumroad.com/l/fontslistfree ● FONTS – Free Only Needed Type Set A complementary collection of carefully selected free typefaces that contain the best positions to fulfill every need in a graphic designer’s work. Your benefits: Graphic designers: Sometimes when the budget is too tight we need a free for commercial use but high quality typeface for our project—with this list you won’t waste your time searching the internet in order to find the right one. Content creators: Base your brand-building on proven typefaces to increase the quality of the materials you produce. Strengthen the power of your communication with your target audience. What is included: + LIST OF TYPEFACES A balanced list of free typefaces that combines the right level of versatility and personality. Created as an alternative to the original premium typefaces. Selection was based on: Glyph similarity Variety of weights Tone of voice Development state Language support Glyph count Opentype features + COMPARISION LIST Every free typeface on the list has its paid equivalent so it adds 40 positions and compares the free and paid classic that was the main inspiration. In addition, a comparison list has been prepared for printing. + FUNDAMENTAL RULES OF GOOD TYPOGRAPHY 10 timeless rules that will drastically increase your skills in the beautiful art of typography. + COMMON TYPOGRAPHIC MISTAKES 10 mistakes you can make in your career as a graphic designer. + MASSIMO VIGNELLI PICKS Original list of typefaces selected by one of the best graphic designers of our times. + LINKS TO SOURCE FILES Links to direct sources of selected free typefaces. + QUICK CARDS A preview prepared for quick comparison of the free typefaces included in the list. + QUICK–INSTALL FOLDER Latest versions of typefaces from the list in one folder for quick installation. Version 1.1 has already been implemented. In version 1.2 a typography checker will be added(as an Affinity Designer template file), where you will be able to check the quality of a selected typeface. —— Be effective. Stay creative. ——
  2. I have a document (Font Embed Example.afpub) using Noto Sans Korean [KR] Bold (Google Fonts) and Noto Sans (Google Fonts) but still only using Latin characters. Both fonts are listed as 'Installable' in Windows font settings: However, when exporting the document as a PDF from Publisher with the Subset fonts option checked, the exported PDF (Font Embed Example (subset).pdf) is missing all styles (i.e bold and regular) of only the KR font: The regular Noto Sans font however embeds perfectly well: Unchecking Embed subsets fixes the issue, at the expense of increasing file size from 1MB to almost 8MB (since the Korean font is quite large) (Font Embed Example (non-subset).pdf) which is too large for some file upload limits. I think this may be a bug in the PDF exporter. I haven't conducted any testing with other non-latin fonts but this may yield similar results. I'm running the latest Publisher version on Windows 11. The same issue also occurred on my laptop running Windows 10.
  3. Hello I have a weird issue with the font caviar dreams. For whatever the reason in the system at home it show all the variants of the font, regular, italic, bold, bold italic, but I went to the office today only to find out that there with the same fonts and the fonts working on others apps, the affinity designer can't see italic and bold of that font for some reason. I don't know if this is present in another font I just use this for a work and I get the error when I open the file that the caviar dreams bold is missing. I checked in other applications and the font manager I use and the font is there. I tried to install in system just in case and still it doesn't work... I'm confused, everything between my home and office are at sync, windows, affinity versions, etc. Is there an option that I miss and probably force this font out? Thank you!
  4. Affinity Version: Windows Version: Windows 10 Home Behaviour: When I enter a style menu and select a font, the app does not display the font drop down menu, freezes for a second, and then crashes immediately. This happens whether it is a paragraph style menu or a character style menu. Selecting a font from the primary screen (i.e. when using the Text Box or Artistic Text tools) works. Attempted mitigations: Tried opening a new document, restarting, uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing worked.
  5. I want to make text that looks like it has been written with a gold. Can some one please tell me if and how I can achieve this? I've attached some examples.
  6. Program: Affinity Publisher Version: 1.10.5 Font type: Calibri - Regular When opening a PDF in Affinity Publisher, that was created in Affinity Publisher, some of the text is altered. The text is not altered when the PDF is opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader. This only happens with Calibri font type. See attached imaged for before and after export. It seems to convert "ti" to "Ï " or "Á" Is there a was to fix the way Publisher reads the text? Is this a common issue with Publisher? Regards Tom
  7. I haven't been using Publisher for a long time, and I've learned a lot through videos. I just finished a 204pg book, 5 x 7, everything looks great. I had to start over twice, had to tweak margins ... and almost a third time, due to some weird thing that happened when one page got pasted in the wrong place. By accident, I figured out how to move it (as cutting, deleting, etc, was deleting the entire chapter). But I digress. I'm done, finished. It looks terrific. I export as a PDF. It looks jaggy. I go back into the filer and everything is not 100% black. It's some 'almost" black. I had created it with CMYK since it will printed not online. Perhaps I didn't have to do that and the publishing company would fix it? But in any event, I found I had to manually change the headers/footers, the Headings, the body font, etc. to 100% black with the sliders. Thankfully, I was able to change the body text with an "all" but ... the "all" didn't include the other items I mentioned. Going forward, why was the content NOT 100% black as a default. #2. This is the most serious issue as I do not want to have to try and change fonts or recreate this ENTIRE thing again. The "ffs" in any word that has a double ff ie bluff, off, offer, ANY word, the double ff is a square indicating missing elements. If I save as a PRINT PDF, they are there. However, that does me no good as that save is on 8 1/2 x 11 and isn't set to print as a book. So... here I am, the penultimate stage to "just simply" send to the client to review so I can "just simply" upload onto Ingramspark and I have flummoxed. What mystery step is alluding me? What setting? What do I need to do to fix this? I assume it is to be exported as PDF/1 ... I think I got the black handled... but this is a head scratcher.
  8. My Affinity Designer document contained a dozen lines using a font named Barmeno. It only has 4 weights and I used 2 of them. The file looked fine but it refused to print. After much time of instituting a repair of all 3 Affinity apps (they were never broken), reinstalling my HP printer (it was never broken either) I finally discovered the problem. I printed a different file from Affinity and it printed so I knew it had to be the font. After swapping it for another, problem was resolved. I'm recreating my CorelDraw files in Affinity but this issue has me nervous. Why did this font not print??
  9. As the title explains whenever i change the font size the comma dissapears. it only happens when i select a font size from the dropdown menu. It's probably not good practice to use mm as a font size but it's there. Before: After changing the font size: I first noticed this comming from 1.8 to 1.9 update. hope this can be fixed, it gets a little anoying after changing sizes a lot. Otherwise happy with affinity!
  10. For some fonts problems arise in Designer in the font style dropdown. As you can see in the images below Windows shows the several types of the Bahnschrift-font the correct way, but in Designer there's only a list full of 'Regular's for this font. The font is included in the attachments. Bahnschrift Bold Condensed.otf
  11. I'm using the built-in macOS emoji font quite often in Affinity Photo. However, for some reason, a lot of the emojis with humans are not displayed correctly. For example, if I input the 👨‍⚕️, AP will instead give me 👨‍ ⚕. And if I try to input 🙋‍♀️, I get 🙋‍ ♀. See attached screenshot (the emoji input palette to the right and the result to the left). They seem to work fine in all other applications. Does anyone know if there is a workaround not involving other software? Running latest versions of Affinity Photo (1.10.4) and macOS Monterey (12.2.1).
  12. HI All, I recently purchased all three programs and moved to Windows 10 OS. I have a new PC so I'm starting from scratch - installing fonts onto my system. I'm still using Adobe CS6 products while I transition to Affinity, I have a lot of print files (Magazines, Ads, Flyers etc.) which use specific fonts that I have to continue using so in order to move I have to be able to access the font files in Affinity. I have hundreds of fonts Truetype, Open Type and Postscript Type 1. The installed fonts all showed up in my Adobe Suite but not in Affinity? I use FontExpert to manage installs but I have also tried installing directly to Win10 fonts folder. The results are quite random. I get a different (Limited) selection of installed fonts each time I open a program - and never the full range of typeface options (Light, medium, regular, bold etc) Is there a setting I am missing to activate the installed fonts? Any solutions welcome? Thanks in advance
  13. Hello everyone, recently my computer was updated to WIndows 11, when trying to use Photo, I realize that the letters and font of the UI are unreadable, I leave a screenshot. I already reinstalled Affinity Photo with no changes.
  14. Hi guys, here's a new video about how to add a new font into Windows 10 so you can use it in any of Affinity software, and not just that, I'm also gonna show you where is the place to find any free fonts and icons for any of your projects. I hope you enjoy this video, thank you!
  15. I recently got a 4K 32” external monitor for my laptop and this obviously caused me to work differently than using my laptop display, namely, as screen size increases, one must sit back further from the display. Doing that, the Affinity UI is barely legible to me. I feel like I’m trying to tap on a grain of sand using a needle. I already have the UI Font preference set to Large but it’s not nearly enough. I don't want to use Display Scaling resolution in system prefs as that negatively impacts performance and I want to use the maximum number of available pixels. I know this is not a trivial thing to address, but I’m hoping / praying the AMAZING devs fundamentally address the UI in version 2 of the Affinity Suite in terms of functionality and customization, and this would include being able to resize the entire UI, including font, it's size and letter-spacing (critical for legibility), as well as icons, Studio panels' buttons and icons. Please consider engineering a responsive UI just like modern websites which can resize any and all elements based on the device used for viewing via CSS. That way users can create profiles for desktop and laptop UI preferences. Larger displays can use an enlarged UI and laptop displays can use a more compact version. Thanks for your consideration and all you do. Happy new year and God bless and heal the world!
  16. Can you enable mouse drag to resize selected text/font in the character menu, similar to character tracking, kerning and scaling functions.
  17. So I was building my portfolio with Windows Affinity Designer, I used the text box to create a subheader, it was all fine till just now, when I created a new text box and adjusted the box size for a smaller width. For some reason, when I type the textand get to the second line of the text box, it centers the text alignment for only the second line of the sentance. When I checked the text alignment, it says its aligned to the left, which is what I need. I'm not sure how I can fix the alignment of the second text line, and I haven't touched anything on the Font Character Window, only what was available on the default workspace character tool bar at the top.
  18. Hi guys, I am experiencing a weird behavior of Publisher with a preproduction font that lays heavily on the contextual alternate Opentype feature. The problem: The font is valid and works fine in Indesign CC 2021 and the Typeface font manager as well as on fontdrop.info. However, when I turn on the contextual alternatives in Publisher, all of them are rendered except for the ones related to the lowercase "i" (like "is", "in" etc.) . See first screenshot for Publisher (blue), second for Indesign CC (black). I am able to reproduce the issue. Please note that I can only provide the font file directly to the support staff. Cheers, Johannes Latest version of Publisher macOS Mojave (latest) Hardware Acc.: On
  19. Please I am from an Arab country most of my work is based on Arabic Fonts (Right to Left fonts) so I find a difficulty in Affinity Designer because it doesn't support tight to left fonts. I have to right it in Adobe illustrator export it as a png then import to to my Affinity Designer project as a png image. You see how it is difficult! My request is that you can fix that problem and support Arabic fonts or right to left fonts. Thank you in advance.
  20. Hi guys! All my important fonts are now showing up as red in the font box and any design using those fonts are now being edited into a standard arial font! This is an absolute nightmare for me as I use these fonts daily for work and clients items! I’ve tried re-importing and seeing if they work but no luck! Any ideas why this is happening and how I can solve it ASAP? Thanks so much! Bobbi x
  21. Hey has anyone noticed any problems using text in AD? It is very slow for me. If I use a text frame, after less than a paragraph it starts to slow down -- I type in text and it takes a moment or two to show up on the screen. It gets slower as I integrate more text. Slightly worse with artistic text. I've tried changing the render settings (paths only, pixel, etc.) but no difference. I don't have many fonts installed, it's a fairly new OS install (Win 10) and I've only installed a few additional fonts. This is not much text (I realize more text belongs in Publisher) basically a few paragraphs that might appear on any flyer or poster. Strange: I have a dual-screen setup -- when I use the second screen for the dockers (I would like to have this setup) the problem is even worse. Any ideas are much appreciated!
  22. Hi, in Affinity Publisher, when I export the document to PDF, text is displaying as gibberish (see attached screenshot). The font is a standard Google font (Lato) , so there should be no licensing issues. What might be causing this, is there a way around it? Thanks!
  23. Hello, Are you planning on adding functionality for the new OpenType variable font technology in Designer, Photo and Publisher? Best, Bauke
  24. Hi, I'm from Cambodia. I'm using Affinity Designer on my mac, and now I suggest my company buy it for me at work too. But I have a problem. It doesn't support Khmer font. When I use in Adobe software, it's ok? Please tell me anyway to fix it.
  25. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
