  1. I'm confused to see lots of error codes in AD when I open my Ai files in Chinese. It totally disturb my mood to finish my portfolio......plz add Chinese in soon.
  2. I simply can't type. Mostly. Ugh - reluctant as I am to say this, I experience too many simple critical bugs to be able to seriously use AD at this point. Latest is when i went to make up a simple neighbourhood notice. (sample attached) For any typeface, on both word text frame and text art modes, typing doesn't work - the cursor blinks ominously but doesn't actually move or render anything. Briefly the app did allow me to do this, as on the sample file, but thereafter not again. And so I have to go back to AI again. Not happy - I have very much wanted to recommend AD to others but I don't feel like I can yet until it's just more stable. Running AD 1.1.2, yosemite, FEX - all latest release versions car space notice Edinburgh Zone.afdesign
  3. I'm sorry to keep banging on about this one. I want to create a text frame/box + move it into position WITHOUT having to break stride and go to the tool box. It's the most glaring fault to an otherwise superb application. If I could do this I'd swear I was working in the 2014 version of Freehand! A hotkey/keystroke is the most obvious solution. or Somewhere on the active frame to grab/grip and move into position. PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! text frame.mov
  4. This mock design has been flying around my head, since 1984. It was my attempt at designing a logo, that contained letters that create shapes. This is the firm that supplied the helicopters for Airwolf. It still takes me ages, but I'm learning...I have used theses filters, glass and onyx. These give the desired effects. peter Ps is Hilary the only forum member to have a filter named after her? (Sunset) jetcopters inc.afdesign
  5. Hi, I've been searching the forums to see if anyone else had this issue but I can't find it anywhere. I have a PSD document that I opened in AD and all the text layers seem to be pixel layers - therefore I can't copy / paste text, check the font / font-size, or edit it in any way. Some "text" pixel layers have fx on them, so I thought it might be because of this. However, I searched layers without fx and they are all the same (pixel layers). Is there something I'm missing? PS: At least one of the fonts used in the PSD is installed (with SkyFonts, from Google; font: Lato). The rest of the fonts I don't know right now because I can't click on them :)
  6. I would like to have the ability to type on a curved path and be able to make text designs like the one in the image I attached.
  7. Hi .. Is it possible to set a text to take path shape such as circle ? Regards
  8. When I change text into curves (or use another action which needs to transform text into curves) and I want to go back curved text becomes not anymore editable text. It always stays a curve. As I got notice of this, I always copy the text before I make such changes on text. So I have not to write the text each time the changes are not what I expected. Thanks
  9. When I have a text layer selected and I go to alter the font, the program quits completely after scrolling through the font list for a few seconds. There were points where instead of crashing, the text layer would just disappear altogether. The few times this happened, I tried selecting a font anyway and then saving / quitting / reopening. This resulted in the text layer retaining the new font style, but still remaining invisible. Some system information: Affinity Beta Version: 1.0.18771 Mac OS Version: 10.9.4 Processor: 2.8 Intel i7 RAM: 4GB Graphics: Intel HD 3000
  10. If I copy a text from a website and paste it with »Paste Without Format« in Designer, there are all format information (color, size, font, etc.) taken. There is no different with the normal past function.
  11. How do you get text to take on the texture of a picture. Example I want my text to look like a Flag
  12. Trouble with printing "Umlaute" öüöä See attachment 1. Image after exporting to PDF 2. Image Original File in Affinity Desinger
  13. When I open this file in Affinity Designer the visibility, position, and content of layers and text is not correct. I have also attached a screenshot of what I see when I open the file. When I open it in Adobe Photoshop everything is as it should be.

  14. Hi there, I'm completely new to AD and I'm trying to distress some graphics. In photoshop I would have maybe created a layer mask but can't seem to find an equivalent. Is this the wrong way to go about it? Suggestions gratefully received. Thanks. Geoff
  15. I am running the beta of Affinity Designer, but I cannot find a way to use the typographic features of some fonts, especially a way to enter old style numbers. Normally I can use this features with the standard OSX "CMD-T" window (I use a Dutch localized version of OSX, and I do not know how this is called in English), but Affinity Designer uses a non standard window. For a graphic designer extended attributes of fonts are a must, so I would be disappointed if these could not be used.
  16. Trying out Affinity Designer I quickly found a bug when applying the Opentype Small Caps attribute to text. As you can see in the middle line of the pdf-file attached, in no font I tried “ein” and “ext” (of “Texttext”) is correctly formatted, neither in most fonts the “t” of “ist” – only Satero and Espuma make a difference here. There seems to be a difference, too, depending whether you use Art Text or Frame Text, as you can see in the top line: Set as Art Text, “esttext” is in lower case – in Frame Text it is again “t”, “ein” and “ext”. As I have the font Granjon in both OpenType- and PostScript-Format I sampled the latter as well. Keep up the good work!
  17. Hi Affinity. I typically use Illustrator for annotating scientific figures made in Matlab (e.g.). When I import .ps and .eps files into AD, the text is not imported as text, but as curves. Is this a result of the way the .ps files are generated or something specific to AD? As a note, when I import these same files to other programs (Illustrator, Preview) the text is treated as words (Art Text in AD vernacular). Note the selected '0' within '5500'. I would expect the whole of '5500' to be a single element.
  18. Select all objects on a page - including text. Group. Drag to scale (using scale handle on bottom right.) Everything scales accordingly. Ungroup. Text springs back to original size (before scaling).
  19. Hi, my name is Jude, I'm a front-end developer. I tried opening the psd file received from my designer and the file contains some font that I haven't installed. Affinity Designer then said: Some fonts for '01.index.psd' are missing. The document might not appear as you expect. The following fonts are missing: DFMingStd-W3 MicrosoftJhengHeiRegular After pressing "OK", I found that all text layers didn't exist. When using Adobe Photoshop, even if I have not installed the extra fonts, I still can see the text layers and copy or change the contents. Wish we can use Affinity Designer with the layer's information correct, at least. Thanks.
  20. All the text boxes have the same font and size. On the tool bar the size is not shown. But when I use the Character panel it shows up... Also, it would be GREAT if like in Illustrator or Photoshop, once I click inside the text size box, if I use the up or down arrows on the keyboard, the text size increases or decreases by one point, or if I hold Shift key down, it increases or decreases by 10 points. Keep up the great work, the app rocks!
  21. This is my one deal breaker. I work in a large company that mainly uses Adobe Suite CC, which is unfortunate if I wanted to adopt Affinity Designer because I cannot share the EPS/PSD files I export from AD because the Dynamic text becomes outlined/flattened. I can however open Adobe files in AD and edit the text, with some quirks(a format issue for another topic). How can I preserve the edibility of my text so that third party users, such as clients or printers, can open and edit the original text using their software of choice? Whether that is Adobe or god forbid, Quark. *Note: I have found out that exporting as a SVG from AD and opening it in Illustrator CC retains the dynamic text, but breaks the text box into smaller art text pieces. Thank you,
  22. Just discovered that when using the “Frame Text Tool” (which is really nice by the way) you can not drag and drop a file of type “.textClipping” into the object rectangle. It gives the message “File type is not supported”. AD should have the ability to allow a drag and drop into any “Frame Text” object as text clippings are a pretty long standing file format on every Mac. Obviously one can drag the text clipping into any TextEdit or Mail window then do a copy and paste the text from there into a text frame in AD to get the same results. Any chance of supporting this file type as above in the future? I also just checked to see if I could use drag and drop to drag an “.rtf” file onto a text frame and that works perfectly. Nice. I you can handle ”.rtf” file “.textClipping” files should be a piece of cake. Max 
  23. I've been bringing text in for mockups from other sources: Word, Email, etc... What would be a huge time saver is the ability to paste just the text without bringing in font size, color, etc. In most applicaitons, this is an edit option called "Paste and Match Style". It brings the text over but retains any current style attributes of the existing text box. SInce there's no way (at the moment) to copy text styles from one object to another, the only thing I can think to do is manually tweak the font size and color each time after I paste. Thanks for what's shaping up to be an amazing application!
  24. Would love to be able to do the font spacing (horizontal kerning) and paragraph leading (vertical kerning) with a simple click of the mouse as in CorelDRAW. I'm a new Mac user, still on CorelDRAW X4 on VMWare Fusion. I'm looking for a good Mac Vector replacement, but it seems that every vector program is missing a few key features that I use regularly in CD. I will be listing the ones I'd love to see in Affinity. So far nothing is really a good replacement for the features I use. Would love to see Affinity become the Mac's CorelDRAW!
