  1. Hey! Found out about Affinity Photo today, and the software looks pretty damn good! As a first try I continued working on a logo design I had going in Photoshop. PSD imported all good, but when I started going through the fonts, I encountered a little trouble. First of the font selection window filled the whole screen and I couldn't see the design anymore. Would be easier if I could just go through the font's with the arrow keys, without the whole huge selection window showing the samples popping up at all. I got over the problem by opening the Character -window though, but in that window I got the fonts to scroll down nice first, but after making a copy of a layer of one of the fonts I might want to use, the scrolling with arrows stopped working and it either moved the cursor in the typed text or the whole text up or down. Is there a solution for this or am I doing something wrong? Thanks before hand! Jani P.S. It might just be me, but I'm so used to copying layers by just draging them to the New Layer icon in the bottom of the layers palette, that I wouldn't mind you guys adding that function... =)
  2. I've been using the trial version of AI and because it's sooo expensive I want to use a program that can import AI files. This program seems to do a good job only it doesn't recognise some of the fonts that were used in AI. Is there a way of downloading new fonts that worked in Ai that can work in affinity?
  3. Here's an article from the Creative Bloq about some tricks for good typography: http://www.creativebloq.com/typography/tricks-every-designer-should-know-12121561 And those crazies over at ComiCraft are having another in their annual never-to-be-repeated font sale: http://www.comicbookfonts.com This sale begins on New Year's eve and continues through Jan 1st and ends at midnight. This year all fonts will be on sale for $20.15 each, even ones that are normally $19 or less. This past January 1st the fonts were on sale for $20.14. Even though they specialize in Comic Book fonts (and as a company they do letter for many comic companies: DC, Marvel, Image, etc) there are a number of display fonts that are just great for titles, logos and such. Many of the more recent display fonts have solid and outline variations -- both have identical kerning and such so that you can make copies of one, change the font to its outline and then color each one separately and have the effect of Blue outlined text with a light green fill (for example). The Kill Joy, Kill Zone and Kill Switch fonts are great examples of this: http://www.comicbookfonts.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=kill If you like what you see, create an account there (they don't sell or share their email list, btw) and make a wishlist so when Jan 1st rolls around you can easily buy the fonts you want for the NTBR sale price. And if you are into comic creation you can subscribe and get all the fonts they create in 2015 for just $129 until the end of January. They put out at least 12 fonts a year and I've been subbing for a few years now and it's been very much worth it to me. But then, I'm a fontaholic and should be on a 12 point program. :P (Just to point out, the fonts in the Pumpkin Tutorial were, for the most part, ComiCraft fonts. A few of the heading fonts were from this past year's releases) happy Holidaze all!
  4. PLEACE ONE SINGLE MENU WINDOW FOR TYPO FONT DESIGN if i set a frame for font i want to manage all things in ONE TYPO EDIT WINDOW .. i don't like click and click to find all hidden features for a proper font design management .. once i loved Freehand's .. Quark's is also super for huge text masses .. Illustrator / Indesign / Photoshop are ok .. once Apples Pages 4 had a sweet font design menu window .. but now in new Pages i have to search and check out a lot of (hidden) submenus .. and AFFINITY's is very similar to pages submenu click orgies for a well doing typo design management .. i repeat PLEACE ONE SINGLE MENU WINDOW FOR TYPO FONT DESIGN
  5. Hello just wondering if there's a way to bring in the glyphs panel for the use of a font. Thank you. Gerardo M.
  6. I thought I would bring this open-type interface initiative to your attention. The type community is going to lobby Adobe very hard to improve their open-type interface. It seems to me that Affinity Designer can probably do a better job here. The information about this can be found here: http://ilovetypography.com/2014/10/25/why-a-better-opentype-user-interface-matters/ And designers are starting to mock up the interface methods that they'd like to see; something to look to for inspiration, perhaps. Cheers, Peter.
  7. Hi, I am working a lot with eps files. I noticed that if I import an eps file, the fonts are all converted into vectors. Would it be possible to fix this, that entire text parts can still be used as text and not as single vectors? This problems only seems to appear in in the eps files, because in the pdf or ai files the text is read in as text. Thank you very much already and keep up your great work :)
  8. On a mid-2011 MacBook Pro w/8GB of RAM and 421 fonts installed, rendering the font dropdown with previews takes about 11 seconds the first time. That's a lot more fonts than I thought I had installed, but I bet a lot of your prospective users have that many or more, and not everyone uses font management software to disable seldom used fonts. Once the menu is rendered, you can start typing the name of the font you want and skip directly to it, rather than scrolling through the menu, which is nice, but there's no way to start typing without invoking the dropdown. If you do decide to scroll through the list, the scrolling is a bit jittery, even after the previews have been cached. A couple suggestions: 1) Add a preference to disable the font previews. It's a great feature, but one you might not always need, and I'm sure that menu would render a lot faster if it didn't have to create all of those previews. 2) Change the font dropdown to a "combo box" control (e.g., http://dev.sencha.com/ext/5.0.1/examples/kitchensink/#form-combos), and only render previews when the user clicks the disclosure triangle side to open the dropdown. Otherwise, when typing directly in the text input side of the combo box, render an autocomplete menu in plain text.
