  1. Hi, Feeling a bit daft and its driving me nuts, When I create a document in design using letters with styles (wood effect, etc) in affinity its sharp, as soon as I import it (pdf) its pixelated when I enlarge it. This only happens when I use styles not when I use curves or flat letters. I've changed rgb settings, document size, everything. What am I doing wrong please. Thanks Just noticed, this happens with any effect on anything (curves, fonts with 3D etc)
  2. Hi, I'm trying to load a PDF from a notation software. But 1. Preview reads it 100% 2. Designer looses all ICONS 3. Graphic has icons but text is no GOOD. Dorico-Quick-Reference-Card.pdf
  3. Hello, dear folks at SERIF. Hello, dear DTP and Artwork Compatriots. One of the slight niggles – besides the lack of GLOBAL LAYERS (VERY important) – I am missing the direct implementation of Monotype's FontExplorer Po. I KNOW it's an early beta, but it would be lovely to know if you guys already "speak" with Monotype to get a PlugIn sorted as FontExplorer is one of the most used FMS in the Designer World. Thanks and regards, Holger BASICS & DETAILS LTD
  4. As soon as I call the NIK plugins, the fonts are updated and Affinity Photo 1.7 needs to be quit without any way to save the former work. Any ideas?
  5. Hi, Please add custom folder to Affinity Photo, from where it recursively load fonts (.ttf and .otf). We setup our windows with sccm and put all fonts to Adobe fonts folder (for InCopy or InDesign), but since affinity can't use font from there, we have to use additional fontmanager or install same fonts to C:\windows.
  6. Since Adobe has went to subscription payment on all thei software like Microsoft. I have been looking for compatible replacements. My main use for Photoshop is not editing and enhancing photos but to create headlines and save as pngs for use in other programs. I also use actions to create mock ups that create CD covers, magazine cover looks etc. I also would like to be able to use and modify the headline files I currently have which are in PSD for,at. How much of this will Affinity do? I am also looking for an Indesign replacement. I have never liked renting software. I current use CS6 on my Macintosh and don't want to be forced to CC one day.

  7. Hi Guys as any new forum members tends to be I am somewhat overwhelmed by the forum content to date, so forgive me is this question has been asked before. I also use Photoshop CS6 and have a veritable smorgasbord of resources such as brushes, fonts, vector graphics, shapes swatches etc and was wondering which if any can be imported into Affinity Designer and Photo.e.g. should I / can I use TTF fonts or OTF fonts. I have never used Adobe Illustrator so not totally au fait with all the terminology. Any advice welcome
  8. I am hoping there will be an easy-to-use feature on the final Affinity Publisher to upload fonts as I am finding the available fonts quite restrictive on the current Beta. (It would be even better if the feature would be added to the next Beta update... but I expect that is wishful thinking haha)
  9. Hi guys! I've some problem with font cache in both softwares on Windows. My font list don't update at all. I try to close AD and AP then restart, but nothing happens. No one of new fonts is updated. In Photoshop, Word and other SW everything is fine. Please, help me! G.
  10. Hi, I have lots of fonts and it slows down the startup of Affinity Photo and designer, because every time it is loading all fonts. Is there anything I can do to speedup things besides deleting fonts? Regards & Thanks, David
  11. Will there be support for color fonts in Affinity, especially Affinity Publisher, in the near future? A year ago there were just a few of these fonts but now there are many, and I have a few in my collection. I've played around with these in InDesign and I'm hooked - you can do amazing things with these.
  12. I’m a type designer and like to test my fonts in Affinity apps. There is one problem. If you re-install the same font with slight changes in Font Book, the systems font caches are corrupted. For me that means cleaning them and restarting every 10 minutes. Indesign (and all Adobe design apps) have the ability to load fonts from a folder in 'Application Support/Fonts' and from a 'Fonts' folder that is next to the document (the later option makes it much more convenient to work with different people on the same file). As soon as you change the font, Adobe apps will reload it and update the document. MacOS provides great APIs to activate fonts per app so this is technically possible.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. I am working on a flyer with various fonts in it, but when I tried to export it, all text is converted to curves. I have tried several settings, but they don't change a thing. I could not find any embedding restrictions on the fonts. This is really annoying, I hope you can fix this. I have created an empty document with a basic font, and exporting this worked OK, so I guess it is somehow font related. I am not sure how to troubleshoot the issue though?
  16. 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?
  17. 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 ....
  18. Can fonts in Affinity Publisher be embedded for file sharing purposes?
  19. ... 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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?
  23. I have an issue where my document is missing fonts, but publisher does not warn me about it when opening the document. Yet it replaces the font with another one, even if the name in the font list is the original. Also the Font Manager does not have any issues and says all fonts are OK. I use Fontexplorer X on Mac El Capitan. Normally this works pretty well, even if there is no auto-activation yet (unfortunately). Perhaps it is a font cache issue, but I hope Publisher can at least ave a better warning mechanism, as this almost went under the radar, which could have given me a lot of trouble...
  24. I'm putting together a table showing some statistical analysis and the as I'm entering the text, the fonts are acting really weird. (I checked several different fonts and it doesn't really matter what font I use, it looks this way on all of them. AF Publisher 1.7.0.249 Mac OS X: 10.13.6 Table with 10 columns and 9 rows Font: Courier New Font size: 7pt
  25. 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.
