  1. I watched an Affinity Designer tutorial instructing me to download fonts from the trusted site ‘dafont.com.’ The video had me get the FontManager app to download the fonts from dafont.com and this was working wonderfully until the latest iOS update (iOS 13.1.3). I need to download holiday fonts ASAP for work related designs so can anyone tell me another way to do this? Much appreciated! -Devin D

    Free fonts

    Here's a link to a couple of font sites, that should be quite useful. http://www.1001fonts.com http://www.1001freefonts.com/search.php?q=borg&search=search HTH peter
  3. Hey! when trying to open a PSD file which contains fonts not on my system - i don't get any message notifying me about this issue. I know that PDF import let me know when a font is missing but why this is not working for PSD files?
  4. Hi, How can I use Windows True Type fonts in Affinity apps? I have over 2500 True Type fonts on my system and only a few of them show up in Affinity. Thank you.
  5. In Windows Affinity Publisher whenever I choose Times New Roman, the font name then displayed is Greekth and the letters displayed are from the Greek alphabet. I can get round this by pasting in Times New Roman text from WORD, and in Publisher I can add underlining to the imported text or change the style to italics, but if I click on B for bold, the font and the displayed text immediately switch to Greekth. See page 6 of the attached practice document. I have tried to add bold to the title of the left-hand column in the table near the bottom of the page. Your assistance in solving this problem will be appreciated. Trevor Practice_layout_02.afpub
  6. Is there a way to import downloaded fonts in designer, I'm using a PC (windows)
  7. This is more of a request for users of the Affinity suite to badger Extensis for them to start to think about producing an auto activation plugin for Suitcase for the fonts used in an existing document. I tweeted Extensis about this a couple of days ago and they said it would be something they would think about if there was enough interest in it, obviously they already do this for the CC suite, but as my company are slowly switching over to Affinity (already using Publisher extensively... working on the other two programs getting implemented as well), this would be a very welcome feature indeed. With over 2 million users of Affinity, it's certainly something that should be taken seriously at this point, so let's make them take notice!
  8. I managed to have an almost working solution to produce a pdf from latex containing text and equations that can be placed / opened in Affinity Publisher (and probably in Designer too, untested) as editable text. The example latex file `main.tex` needs to be compiled with lualatex (or xelatex, but pdflatex will not work), and requires the following OTF fonts: http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/latin-modern/download http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/lm-math/download/index_html I attach the produced file as `main_luatex.pdf`. Moreover, I opened the file with OSX Preview, and exported it as pdf with the name `main_exported.pdf`. Findings: - main_luatex.pdf + open / place in Affinity Publisher doesn't work (missing characters, ...) - main_exported.pdf + open / place in Affinity Publisher works as expected, text and equations are correctly imported as (editable) text - opening main_luatex.pdf in OSX Preview, copying and pasting text to Affinity Publisher works but the exact placement of equations is lost (expected); copying and pasting a selection (Tools -> Rectangular Selection) works but it ignores the selection box and the whole page is copied instead (unexpected) So, OSX Preview is doing something to the pdf but it's unclear what exactly. So I tried running pdffonts on the 2 pdfs but the only difference is in the number of objects: (base) ~/Downloads/tex $ pdffonts main_luatex.pdf name type encoding emb sub uni object ID ------------------------------------ ----------------- ---------------- --- --- --- --------- TIOITJ+LMRoman10-Regular CID Type 0C Identity-H yes yes yes 4 0 ZVNSJQ+LatinModernMath-Regular CID Type 0C Identity-H yes yes yes 5 0 ABULFO+LatinModernMath-Regular CID Type 0C Identity-H yes yes yes 6 0 (base) ~/Downloads/tex $ pdffonts main_exported.pdf name type encoding emb sub uni object ID ------------------------------------ ----------------- ---------------- --- --- --- --------- VZLAKC+LMRoman10-Regular CID Type 0C Identity-H yes yes yes 7 0 XSLNON+LatinModernMath-Regular CID Type 0C Identity-H yes yes yes 8 0 ZQHZQC+LatinModernMath-Regular CID Type 0C Identity-H yes yes yes 9 0 Moreover, while I can copy text from main_luatex.pdf and paste it correctly (equations aside of course) in an utf8-aware text editor, trying to do this with main_exported.pdf results in unrecognized characters (the dreaded square boxes). Which adds to the mystery as this is the file can be correctly imported in Affinity Publisher! Can someone with more expertise have a look at the 2 pdfs and explain what is the difference? I am aware that all these issues can (to some extent) be avoided by making any pdf "fontless" (i.e. using ghostscript to convert fonts to curves) but I need to work with text in my workflow for a number of reasons. In case there is a more relevant section in the forums please feel free to relocate this post as appropriate. main_exported.pdf main_luatex.pdf main.tex
  9. I started a thread in feedback on font organization but now honestly this issue has turned into a bug or a glitch and wanted to address it here. My original request/complaint was that Affinity Publisher (or any Affinity product) could handle font organization better, grouping the widths together as a condensed/normal/extended format. Adobe does it this way and it works well. Now however, I sent feedback to a font foundry because I thought they had mislabeled SemiExpanded to be wider that Expanded. They told me it was the case with my software not their font. I looked again and realized they were correct and want to share a screen grab from Affinity and another from Photoshop to compare. Please see how the weights and widths organization is messy but the optical illusions of the widths. It seems the word length is squeezing down the sizes as well. Since Affinity Publisher is a master layout assembly tool especially where typography plays a critical role, and where many designers use thousands of fonts and many superfamilies that are extremely difficult to navigate through in the current font organization scheme, I ask for the fonts to be displayed as they are with Adobe. This would help tremendously. I love Affinity products but this is issue a thing to deal with.
  10. Two of us in the studio are running Affinity Designer 1.6 (latest update) on Mac OSSierra but seeing identical PDF issue when exporting. 1. New and legacy AFDesign files are manifesting same behavior when we try and export PDFs (using out of the box settings) 2. Fonts appear correctly in Affinity Designer but the only way we can export files and not have the messed up files is to export Text as Curves (not ideal) 3. We're running two separate computers with local versions of all fonts. Both computers have separately licensed versions of the software too. Exact same behavior in terms of corrupt / malformed PDF output. (See attached images) Please help — this has only appeared since 1.6 update. We rely on AFFINITY DESIGNER for client deliverables. Thx.
  11. I've used Suitcase to remove extraneous fonts from my user library but there's still a great number of fonts remaining in the system that show up in the drop down of Designer. Is there some way to manage the fonts in that menu option? I know I can limit the number by placing some in a favorites category but I'd like to have the general drop down exclude all the irrelevent options.
  12. The problem just happens as it titles, I want to install fonts on Affinity Designer for iPad as the Affinity page tutorial follows, going to settings, pressing the cloud icon, locating the fonts I want to install, select each weight (file) such as bold, light, etc, and then tapping on "Open" but after that nothing happens, the fonts don't show on the list, tried this several times, also checked the font file extension and it is .ttf and .otf and none of them show, also checked on the text studio to see if them were just not showing up on the list but were available to use and nope, the fonts weren't installed, and I don't know what to do anymore! I've tried several times with different files and nothing happens, every time I repeat the profes of the cloud, select and open is like if I just did nothing, the list keeps empty and that's it, what could be happening?
  13. Hey! I am wondering whether it is possible to place a PDF document without having the fonts replaced automatically. My question is now: Is (or will there be) there an option to convert all text to curves when placing a PDF document in AP? Would save a lot of time. Now I have to convert such PDFs before in another (open source) vector program to preserve its appearance. Affinity Designer doesn't provide this option either. Best regards, Chris
  14. I'm using Affinity Designer on Mac. Some fonts are missing from an .ai file that I'm working with. I'd like to figure out the names of the font files that are missing. Google tells me that the names of the missing fonts should show up in something called the character panel.. I can't find this panel. And if I google further I can't find out how to find the panel. So exactly do I discover the names of the missing fonts?

  16. My understanding is that the PDF specification allows an attachment to be included in a PDF file. Adobe Reader allows one to extract the attachment(s) from a PDF file that contains one or more attachments. Could Affinity Publisher please have the facility to include an attachment in a PDF file when it is produced? I have a reason for this request. I read recently that (some? many? all?) desktop publisher programs will not allow the editing of a PDF using a font embedded in the PDF unless the font is also installed on the computer. I appreciate that that is to protect the intellectual property rights of font producers and I do not object to that at all and I hope that nobody purports that this request is to circumvent that protection of intellectual property rights. However, if the producer of the font is the also author of the PDF document and the font is for a specialist purpose, it would be helpful to be able to include the font as an attachment to the PDF as well as it being embedded in the PDF and that would be entirely lawful. I appreciate that if the PDF is made available from a website then the font could also be made available from the same website. Yet when sending items to the British Library for legal deposit, the PDF can be included in the catalogue but, as I understand it, the font cannot. So having the font embedded in the PDF would greatly help in archiving for the future. I note however that the British Library does accept fonts for legal deposit as long as they are published. I have deposited various fonts for legal deposit at the British Library and it is likely that I was the first person to do. I appreciate that including this facility will take work, yet I do not how much work. So it is a partly a matter of how long it would take to include and how difficult a task it would be to do it William
  17. This is the second time I am writing about terrible support for Khmer fonts in the Affinity suite. The first time I wrote, I provided sample fonts and images to show how the fonts are supposed to be rendered. AD and AP still do not have it corrected. I have up to this point been a fanboy for Affinity products, telling lots of people about Affinity. Yet the over the course of many and major updates, this problem, which is a show-stopper for my using Affinity, has not been corrected. And I know others in this forum have requested this problem be fixed as well. As a Khmer speaker, I am still willing to provide any support or files needed to facilitate fixing these bugs. Here is my previous topic that I posted in the forum. It was nicely marked (pre-1.7), and yet 1.7 has not fixed the issue. Thanks. Adam EDIT: I am working in MacOS Mojave.
  18. In an AffPub doc that I created I used Goudy Old Syle throughout. When my colleague opens it on his computer (which has Goudy Old Style) the entire doc comes up with a different font (Ariel or Helvetica?). However, AffPub font does not show the replaced font name, nor is there any message in AffPub before it changes the doc font that I sent him but ?Goudy. This is very disturbing and must have an explanation although I can find nothing on the forum. My AffPub doc should maintain the same font and formatting when opened by a different user on a different computer (both Macs).
  19. When attempting to import Agfa Rotis and use it, only the semisans in the family is usable. The import appears to work, but I can’t actually select it in Text Studio. If i then load the font locally using Anyfonts, I can use it in other programs. I’m new to fonts. Please help.
  20. Hi there! I’ve uploaded a few fonts to my Google Drive in order to install them using the Affinity D (iPad) font installation feature. Problem is: all font files appear greyed-out and not-selectable. There’s nothing I’ve tried that managed to change/fix this. Now, is this an Affinity D bug on the iPad? Or is it an Apple issue? Anyone experiencing this as well? Thanks in advance for any help!
  21. To whom might know.. hell o I’m looking for a broadway font texture. I’m using Design on my iPad.. I’ve been able to find some textures but not many.. and yes I’m work on a no budget plan.. sorry. Thanks for any help, Dan
  22. I've noticed that all the Affinity applications have trouble with the Contextual Alternates feature (on by default). The 'error' occurs when the entered text has an initial capital. Specifically when the applications auto capitalise the first word. All OK in Adobe applications etc.
  23. Congratulations to Serif and the Publisher team on release! In very early use, I'm noticing that Publisher 1.7.1 is not seeing all the fonts installed on my Mac. I don't notice a particular pattern, though I haven't yet looked hard. In particular, "Book Antiqua" is MIA, though it is verifiably active on my Mac. (2017 MBPro, High Sierra.) Thank you for the release.
  24. Hi Affinity, While I love the way OpenType features are handled much better than in Adobe, I really cannot navigate font superfamilies. If you have any family that has different weight groups then navigating through the font list is very difficult. Can you guys please fix the font organization. It really slows down my work otherwise. I am showing screenshots for one particular font family. I have licensed countless superfamilies and I really don't like working with them in Affinity products for this reason.
