  1. Will there be any value of including Variable Fonts accessibility in Affinity products? I see this as being a great time-saver when working on projects requiring a single font in various weights. ** Not heard of Variable Fonts? reads here: https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/design-and-ux/typography/variable-fonts/ https://v-fonts.com/ https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/CSS_Fonts/Variable_Fonts_Guide https://medium.com/variable-fonts/https-medium-com-tiro-introducing-opentype-variable-fonts-12ba6cd2369
  2. I recently downloaded a new font from Creative Market ( https://creativemarket.com/dedemulyadi/908638-Heritage-Font-Combinations ) but I am unsure of how to add it to Affinity Designer on my mac. I am new to Affinity and I am completely lost. Can anyone help or give any suggestions on importing new fonts? I love using Creative Market so I am hoping the programs are compatible.
  3. I have an issue with a font manager called FontAgent Pro. It has a font auto activator, which is very handy because I use many different fonts and don't want to have these activated all the time. I run into the issue where the auto-activation works very well for the Beta versions, but not for the app store release versions. How can this be? Is the way the app store version is sandboxed a limitation for this to work? If this is the case, is it possible to update to the non-app store version of Affinity Designer (sold in the Affinity Store) as I believe this does not have the sandboxing?
  4. Hello I start using Affinity designer recently, then please correct me if I'm doing something wrong, but after I rasterize black fonts, they seem to change to a dark gray color than black. The color in the color pallet is black, same as the line in the left...but, just the fonts look like dark gray.... I tried to print to see if they are really gray or is just my display but, still look like gray ....
  5. Can fonts in Affinity Publisher be embedded for file sharing purposes?
  6. ... or should I say the miseries of font substitution? I placed a file for testing purposes and the font changed from GothamLight to LCD. Strange decision, because the fonts do not look too similar. If I look at the document properties / fonts in Acrobat: GothamLight | Type 1 | Embedded subset | User defined encoding. LCD in my system is TrueType. I am hoping for the day, when Publisher allows us to decide whether to place a PDF editable or just as an image.
  7. I am sorry if this is not a relevant issue, or if I have misunderstood something. I am running Affinity Designer 1.6.5 on a Mac with El Capitan: I have made a figure (an illustration for an article) that contains text in different fonts. Then I exported this figure as a pdf file with all fonts embedded as subsets. When I check this pdf in Acrobat, all fonts are there as subsets, just as intended. The pdf can also be opened in Affinity Designer with no problems. Now, use this pdf as an inserted object in a word processor like Word, Nisus Writer Pro or Mellel. Then print the article to pdf from the word processor. The new pdf file looks fine in Preview and Acrobat; but Acrobat reveals that all fonts that were embedded in the figure, now have the same cryptic name, e.g. “font0000000022523ae5”. If the new article pdf is opened with Adobe Illustrator or Affinity Designer, they will complain that the font “font0000000022523ae5” is missing. Affinity Designer will allow me to select a replacement font, but only one for all of the figure text. The thing is, my previous workflow involved making the original pdf, the one with the figure, with an old version of Illustrator, and with Preview to assist. When these pdf’s are used as inserted objects in a word processor, the final article pdf works quite fine, and no fonts are “missing”. I wonder why there is such a difference. The obvious workaround, just to be on the safe side, is to convert all text to curves when exporting the illustration pdf. This will look fine when printed on professional equipment, though is has some disavantages when sharing manuscripts or printing them on ordinary office printers. Also observed: If the original pdf export from Affinity Designer embeds the complete fonts (not subsets), then no fonts are reported as “missing” in the final article pdf. And if Adobe InDesign is used instead of a word processor (with embedded subsets in the original figure pdf), then the exported final article pdf will open fine in Affinity Designer, while Illustrator will outline any text used in the figure.
  8. Fonts are not available to select from Google Drive in Affinity Designer for Ipad – both OTF. and TTF. fonts. Support here would be appreciated. Cheers! Running on Ipad Pro iOS 12.2
  9. Mac issue: Has the number of installed fonts that prevents Designer from opening files been fixed yet? I cannot be constantly loading and unloading fonts in order to make the app work. Apparently the number of installed fonts causes a "permission denied" state when opening files. Have you pursued any additional contact with Extensis to allow their font manager to work with your apps?
  10. Looking to find typeface or font bundles which have the visual effects of what the Serif Xenon Brush Pack Bundle (https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/store/product/xenon-brush-pack-bundle/ does for brushes. To be used in all three Affinity packages. Thanks in advance.
  11. Is there a way to "Create Outlines" on text in Affinty? I'm new to Affinity Designer and have been using Illustrator for many years and while the interface on this is really good, it seems to be missing a crucial component that is required when preparing to send my work for output. My instructions are to: Embed/outline the fonts: When saving your file as a PDF, choose the option to embed the fonts. Even better send us a version of the file with all fonts outlined. However, despite having the "Embed fonts" checked off in the "Advanced" tax that appears when saving as a PDF, apparently that is not enough. I have just wasted a load of money on work that did not come out correctly. In particular, everywhere I have used a letter with a French accent aigu (É) the letter has come out incorrectly sized and pressed up against it's neighbour. How do I rectify this for my next output?
  12. Hi, I'm unable to paste text written in Hindi in Affinity Designer on Windows. The alphabets/words in Hindi break and appear as some other word. In GIMP and Krita, it works fine, but in Designer, Hindi is not working. I faced same problem in Photoshop too. Is there any solution for it? Thanks.
  13. I'm not sure if this is a feature on Publisher or not, but I was looking for a way to find and replace fonts in an entire document. Publisher is working great for pulling in PDFs and allowing you to edit the content. Better than anything I have used before. Currently I am able to edit manually, page by page, to change the fonts. I'm working with multiple 20+ page PDFs that need font styles and text sizes to change. InDesign has a feature called 'Find Font' that allows you to see all the fonts in the entire document and change the style/family and size. I wanted to see if this is a feature in Publisher that I can't find or if it will be implemented in the future. Even if this isn't part of Publisher it's definitely outshining InDesign right now!
  14. Hi, It wold be lovely to have google fonts browser integrated directly into Affinity Designer for iPad. So you can browse through type catalog and have search criteria like serifs, sans-serif, condensed, display etc... Also Adobe Type would be nice but i konow that is far fetched :) Cheers! Igor
  15. I have a document sent to me by a customer in both PDF and AI format. The document uses a font that I don't have. Even though I uncheck replace fonts, Designer doesn't outline it. It just give me a standard system font. Am I missing something? I swore Designer would do this. I'm running 1.6.5
  16. Hello, I have a problem with a pdf with embedded fonts, exported in Affinity Designer. When i open the pdf in Adobe Acrobat Pro and try to edit the text, I get the message that the original font is not available or can not be used for editing. The pdf is attached. In the properties window in Acrobat, the fonts are shown as embedded. I deactivated "subset fonts". The font is from Adobe Fonts. When I try the same with exporting a pdf from InDesign, it is working fine. Thanks in advance! Fonts not working in Acrobat.pdf
  17. I realize that you can't deactivate Mac system fonts but I really don't need those fonts in my design documents. I need only my designer fonts of which I have many. Since no one can't activate thousands and thousands of fonts all at once, on any powerful system, I activate and deactivate only what I need per project. So it would be very nice to have a clean list of fonts - only see my designer fonts that are currently active. In other words, just hide not deactivate. Can there be a switch to turn the visibility of fonts on or off? That would be so great to not have to mentally block out STIX and all those other fonts that I never use and don't need and really make it difficult for me to scroll through the list.
  18. Hello, I searched the forum for info on the subject, and found one comment suggesting we write to our font management software companies requesting plugins to use with Designer and Photo (and Publisher). I wrote Insider Software, the makers of FontAgent, and this is the reply: "Manually activating fonts in FontAgent should make them show up in the Affinity applications, but at this time Serif (the company the makes the Affinity products) does not have a way for developers to make plug-ins. Without that ability, we do not have a way to auto-activate fonts like we do with the Adobe applications. If/when they do add plug-in support we will take a close look at that opportunity." Manually activating fonts will work while I'm learning the workflow, but never in a production scenario. Insider says y'all don't have a plugin structure, is that true? And if it is or not, can this be accomplished, so our font management solutions can work with your very fine products? Thanks.
  19. I am excited by the extended OpenType typography features, but I can't seem to use any of my treasured Adobe Type 1 fonts. Must I convert these fonts to TrueType to use them with the software?
  20. Create a bit of text, of the Artistic Text Tool type, if you'll excuse the pun. With it still active, click on the font drop down. Beach ball... frozen, crash. Every single time. Latest MacBook Pro 2018, most up to date version of OSX 10.13.x (not Mojave), most recently fully updated Affinity Designer.
  21. Hi, I mentioned this topic at the wrong forum (windows - shame on me) some days ago. Every time I try to select a font in the upper menu the spinning wheel of doom appears. This happens in at least 60% of the time. I deactivated all fonts via fontexplorer to test if the problem is connected with a specific font, but the problem remains. I reinstalled AD completely. It seems like nothing is working. At this time I can`t use AD anymore and switched back to illustrator to get the job done. I was willing to switch completely to affinity, but this problem gives me some headaches... Anyone experience such behavior and has a solution for it?
  22. Hallo, I have included two screen shots, one is from windows 10 control panel the other windows 10 font disply, both showing the DAVID font, as I did install them. However one is greyed out while the other is availbale, this is a mystery in itself, but I assumed that affinity would show all my fonts in its program since the system has them. My ignorance regarding the disorganised scruffy windows system is due to the fact that I am apple mac person but unfortunately have been forced to work with 'this thing called microsoft'. I would appreciate your help. Thanking you in advance.
  23. For me publishing is all about typography and setting beautiful text, whether that's artistic display type or vast amounts of body text. Here are some things I'd like to see Publisher get at some point (but maybe it's just me so I'm interested in people's comments): 1. Font info: In the Font selector show as much information about each font as practical (ideally let the user configure which attributes are shown), and provide a "get info" function to display all available details. Attributes of interest would include licensing flags (embeddable, etc.) existence of Kerning pairs, OpenType features of interest, western language support, CJKV support, etc. 2. Basic Font management: I'd like to be able to organize fonts into groups (potentially having one font in multiple groups). I'd like to be able to attach some notes text to a font that would be viewable as a tooltip say, or an attribute in the font info described above. 3. Optical Kerning support: I've always been a fan of Optical Kerning in InDesign as it eliminates a significant problem when exploring for interesting and special purpose fonts, and the ability to leverage the insane number of free fonts (of wildly varying quantity of course) that exist today, some/many/most/virtually all of which do not include kerning pairs. I suspect many font designers take the attitude that "kerning is a pain in the butt and people can just turn on optical kerning in InDesign so really there's no problem if you don't do the work to create them". In playing with Publisher I've been disappointed to find out just how many fonts I like will be problematic in Publisher due to lack of kerning support. The Affinity response so far is: "We provide kerning based on tables in the font file. As these are pretty well supported by fonts, doing anything more isn't a priority at the moment." ( https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/65653-tooltip-fix-and-optical-margin-align/&tab=comments#comment-342380 ) which is disappointing. I hope they'll consider it in the future.
  24. I'd be grateful to learn how to import fonts into Affinity Designer.
  25. Hi, Support for COLOR FONTS by the time you release the alpha will be appreciated. Thanks VJ
