  1. I sometimes write in multiple languages, and when I use a font that doesn't support the language, Designer automatically chooses a similar font that supports the language I'm writing in. Is there a way to know what font Designer has chosen for me?
  2. Hello all, I'm making identical width images whose text sizes I want to match up as they are part of a multi-image collage (text scrolls for a Kickstarter campaign body). Weirdly, in one file font size 5 looks like this: and in another, I had to increase font size to 12 and it still looks smaller than 5 above: In both cases it's the same font, in a text frame, in a file of identical width. Why in the second file does my text look so much smaller....and how can I fix it so font size 5 looks the same across all my files?
  3. Using the entire V.2 suite, Windows 11 OS. Created slides natively and exporting to PDF; using Open Sans fonts. They look fine, on the program. The fonts on the exported PDFs, however, are noticeably thicker; also with occasional errors (like lowercase "f" strangely becoming an "8"). I've reloaded my fonts two times on Windows; the "thick" output happens no matter what I've done (even using Open Sans Light, it mysteriously "thickens" the font).
  4. Hi there! I just wanted to share a list of Free for Commercial Use Fonts. This is a curated[*] list of some of the best freely available Fonts out there. The criteria I had in order to come up with this list: They have to be either Free or Open Source Fonts. They can be used in commercial projects (some restrictions may vary from Font to Font, so be sure to read first). I made my best to ensure this point, but I could be wrong and I'd be more that happy if you let me know if I made a mistake. No attribution required. In some cases (Serif and Sans Serif), they have to have more than two weights (at least one italic included). Support for Spanish characters like Á, Ü, ¿¡!?, Ññ (since I speak Spanish, this was mandatory, but there are many more good Fonts that don't cover this criteria). [*] I have basic knowledge about typography, but I have read reviews from well educated people in order to ensure quality. Well, here it is the list. As you can see, they are grouped by classification, and a general one in that regard. Some of the Serif and Sans Serif fonts were included in "Headlines" because they had one weight or they had no italics/oblique. [UPDATE] Added notes on some cases, like what the Font can be an alternative of. [UPDATE] Added the number of Fonts. [UPDATE] Adding previews of the fonts... eventhough some of them won't look as good, but it will help before clicking on a link.

  5. I have to modify a PDF where I can reorganize sections of a music PDF. The music comes through just fine, as well as most of the text. However the vocal lines have the weirdest letter spacing I have seen. Publisher imports text with tabs in the middle of the lyrics. The lyrics are in Times New Roman, so its not a case of me not having the right font on my computer. InDesign and Acrobat Pro can open it just fine, as well as several other files. I certainly am puzzled by this behaviour. I'm pulling the plug on Adobe the middle of January, and would really like to sort this out. I don't modify music very often at all, but this gives me pause with Affinity's relationship with PDFs. Excerpt- Acrobat-On Eagle's Wings - Eb Major.pdf
  6. With the release of Catalina, Apple has included a ton of localized versions of Noto Sans in its system font library. These fonts can’t be removed or disabled. I actually have the complete Noto Sans and Noto Sans Display font families installed, and it’s difficult to quickly find them now. A way to be able to hide fonts would be extremely helpful. For the time being I’ve favorited the Noto Sans families I use but I don’t want to have to add every font to my favorite list just to avoid seeing the system fonts. i see two ways of doing this. The first is adding a hide action next to the existing favorite one and creating a new hidden fonts tab after favorites this allows the user to still select a hidden font for use if they want to. Alternatively, placing the font list in a preference pane, using checkboxes to select fonts you want to hide, and not showing them in the UI at all. In either solution you would be choosing which fonts to hide, not which fonts to show. This way new fonts that are installed would always be immediately available.

  9. Hi there, I'm looking to use an Adobe CC font(s) in my Affinity v2 apps for iPad, and having browsed a few older forum threads, I am still unsure whether or not this is currently possible. In the Affinity apps, the fonts from Adobe CC are showing up in the text panel's font menu, but cannot be applied to text in the document (the font name appears in red with a question mark, as though it is missing). To clarify, Adobe CC fonts work as expected in the Affinity desktop apps. Hopefully it's the case that I'm missing something obvious, and not that Adobe CC fonts are incompatible at the moment. Any advice would be appreciated, and regardless, I truly love and appreciate each one of these apps. Thank you.
  10. I don't know if I'm just not familiar enough with the affinity suite and haven't found this feature, but there's a feature that I've been wanting for some time. I would like for there to be a tool in affinity designer that streamlines the creation of a new font and allows you to export to a font file format. I want to be able to easily do something like select a letter to work on, design it, and repeat for each letter. Maybe they can add an option to create a "New Font Project..." This would make the font creation process infinitely easier and much more accessible to someone like me who doesn't need to create fonts very often. Every time I want to create a font I'm met with a million steps, and a million potential websites, but never one easy software feature that integrates the design and the workflow into one place. Affinity seems like a prime contender for such a feature, and they already have an amazing base of existing features to work with. Let me know if anybody else feels something similar, or if you think I'm inept and have to get over it 😆. I just want to be able to keep falling back on affinity for my every design need! I just found this forum post and I'm hoping that the new release of V2 makes it possible for affinity to add this feature.
  11. I've had issues exporting previous iterations of this project on MacOS v1, and on v2. I recently cleaned up the document and packaged it to eliminate as much bloat as I could find, and it's still getting stuck. I'm guessing its something to do with the project—is it simply too big, or something else? If the former, what are some best practices for managing export times on large projects? I also wasn't able to get Publisher 2 to locate instances of fonts on iPad, the locate function on macOS v2 worked fine, as did locating images on iPad. Is this feature not implemented on iPad, or could something have been causing the locate function to fail? 1091990879_ExportFailedProjectPackage.zip
  12. Does Affinity Publisher V2 support Unicode fonts in Indian Languages (complex script option) and RTL languages? The earlier V1 did not handle that. I use extensively all the Indian Languages. Madurai Sridhar
  13. The problem is quite simple. I am not able to use variable fonts installed on my system. I have attached screenshots showing that my computer properly recognizes the font however, none of the programs, Photo 2, Designer 2, Publisher 2, correctly recognise my font. And yes, this is the case with other variable fonts as well, not just one. Fonts were downloaded from Google Fonts. Running Windows 11 22H2. Downloaded all programs from Microsoft Store. If you need any other info, I'll be happy to provide. P.S: Sucks to not be able to create something on the first day itself. But I guess launching a software has its share of challenges.
  14. I am just wondering if the new designer V2 programme now supports the colour fonts (OpenType SVG fonts), as I will only buy V2 if it has this feature, as I’m very happy with Affinity Designer V1.
  15. Variable fonts will be the way to go in the future. Having the possibility to adjust your font with high precision is a key feature. And I'm talking for print. There are great typefaces where variable axis play an important role. PLEASE ADD VARIABLE FONT SUPPORT. OUR GOAL IST TO BE BETTER THAN ADOBE.
  16. Affinity Designer on the windows desktop was forcibly closed when I was looking for fonts in the search field, has anyone experienced this too? I don't know if this has anything to do with windows 11 22H2, but I never experienced this before updating my windows to 22H2
  17. Hi guys, This is my first post here so please be gentle! I've created a book for a roleplaying game and done all the layout work with Publisher using Corbel as the font for all Body text. There are also a couple of other text styles which then use Body (style) as the basis. On exporting the PDF, everything looks absolutely fine. The problem I have only occurs when I try something I know most of my buyers will want to do, which needs a little explanation. Basically, the book is for a roleplaying game, and the Games Master will want to copy out some bits of information, character statistics as you can see above for example, for use at the table. The same also goes for Virtual Table Top software which allows online play of the game. When I copy out the text from the PDF and paste into an editor (I've tried MS Word and Notepad) the numbers all turn into unrecognisable symbols. When I copy the text directly from Publisher, it works just fine. Also, when I change the Typography setting for figures from Lining to Default or No Change, the numbers show when pasted from the PDF but their position and size is altered in Publisher and it just doesn't look right. The image below is snipped from Publisher: I've tried the various settings in export for fonts to no avail. I really don't want to have to go back over 240 pages with a new font. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks, Allan.
  18. 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. ——
  19. I am getting the following message when I open the file I've been working on in Affinty Publisher when I export it to PDF. The font XELOAT+Run-Medium contains bad/ Widths I really am clueless as to how to resolve this. So, help, please.
  20. How does Affinity Publisher deal with variable fonts? Are there any plans to integrate related features?
  21. In much of Asia, it is usual to have bits of Latin-script text in a block of Thai, Chinese, or whatever. Right now I'm working on a restaurant menu where one field requires both Thai and Latin script. The next version will need Chinese, too. To make this look good I need a different font for each script. In Microsoft Word I can define a style that uses an entirely different font for each script. From the posts I've seen, in Affinity Publisher I would need to override a paragraph style with a manually applied character style for two of the three scripts. This is a pain, and since I'd have to do it over again whenever my merge data changes, I can't really use Publisher for this job. This problem must be hurting Affinity sales all over Asia, and I would think that applying a font according to a range of Unicode code points would not be a big programming challenge.
  22. Hi I have JUST come upon a NEW Colour Font! it is usable in later versions of Adobe products ( It is a joint collab with Mozilla & Adobe) and can be opened and used as below table. ANY info as to WHEN this Highly important new font can be at least opened and used in any Affinity products ( DESIGNER First, please!!) ???? I spent AGES trying to 'see' the colour in a font only to discover I can't. I can see this new Industry it will NEED to be able to create or at least use this as we will be seeing it more and from this year. https://www.colorfonts.wtf/ App Color fonts Supported formats Comments Photoshop Y SVG SBIX Since PS CC 2017 Illustrator Y SVG SBIX Since AI CC 2018 Pixelmator Y SBIX Want more?

  23. Just wondered if there's a way for the font group to remember the chosen group? See below. For example, I'd like the 'Favourites' or 'English' groups active each time I open the Publisher/Designer/Photo but it always defaults to 'All Fonts'. Not sure if its hidden in settings, or if you need to create a 'default' document and save it somewhere (I think you had to do that with Quark/Freehand/Indesign many, many years ago!).
  24. Hi, I just wanted to check if there a way to see the list of fonts used in a Affinity Designer document? I generally convert all the fonts to curve before sending the file (PDF) to printer to avoid missing fonts issue. But some font's don't get converted with ctrl+select (eg. fonts used in symbols). Finding the list of fonts in the document would help to identify if there's still some fonts that are not converted. Thank you.
  25. Hi everyone, I'm using a font for a personal project that appears to have a kerning issue. The font is called onelove and is a script font with strokes that overlap character cells. It appears at first glance that AD is using some form of kerning however it appears poorly done. I then tweak it using my own values for the kerning and everything looks fine for any bitmap exports but the PDF export looks like the kerning values have doubled up. Converting the fonts to curves solves the problem but it isn't what I want at the moment while things are unfinished. As a test I used the same font in MS Word and the default look is very different and no kerning was required. Note: the MS Word text is a bitmap screen grab from Word pasted into an AD document for comparison. I've a suspicion that the kerning is somehow mangled and that the changes I'm making are not necessary, but appear to be required from the on-screen image I'm working with in AD, and these changes then appear as extra offsets in the PDF export. Here's what the above AD file exports to PDS as: There is definitely a lot of movement here. I hope I'm doing something stupid here but can't for the life of me see what it is. Any thoughts?
