  1. Hi quick Q about kerning. I don't seem to be able to adjust individual words or characters within a text frame. Seems I can only adjust the entire contents of a text frame? Is this correct? S
  2. To me it seems that the "Auto" checkbox in the character palette (Cmt+T) doesn't work. When I set the kerning manually to let's say 50 % the white space in my text grows. Fine. But when I then enable "Auto" again, nothing happens. Instead I would expect the selected text to reset to normal (0 %) kerning.
  3. I try to convert some work from Adobe Illustrator. I made some logo design in Adobe Illustrator. As Illustrator format basically contains an embedded PDF it's pretty easy to see a preview just using QuickView in Mac OS. The format was imported without issues but there might be a general issue correctly respect the kerning information from the font. There are some huge gaps between specific symbol groups mostly related to the uppercase "A" character. At least this is the place where it's most obvious that there is something wrong. I did two PNG exports of the original file rendered by Affinity and Illustrator. I think it's pretty obvious what's wrong. Is better font support on the roadmap or is that some specific issue with some font files? Thanks for support and clarification!
  4. Hello Affinity, first I want to say, that I am waiting for a Adobe competitor for a long time now. I am very glad you started the Affinity project and I am also looking forward to the publishing tool. This morning I bought a license for the app and I already did some testing. I have to say. I am a professional type designer and I work a lot with curves in Fontlab and Glyphs. The outline tools you get in Illustrator are very poor, I think. Due to those problems I would say, that I can achieve a good outline in the font apps in half the time. Still the font apps could be even better. Maybe I cannot expect you to really implement what I would like to have because you might say it is not important for most of the users. But still I want to share with you. Maybe it is even better to speak on the phone about that. I am working with curves in 2 different ways. With open and with closed outlines. In Glyphes and Fontlab I can easily copy and paste parts of a form. It is also very simple to open and close a form. The reason, why I copy and past a section is to maintain that part when I want to scale it. In other cases it is better to have separate closed forms and work on them separately and remove the overlap later. For typefaces one thing is very important. The so called extrem points. I have uploaded a picture to show you what I mean. A very helpful feature would be a way to create those extremes automatically. Fontlab and Glyphs have that feature. But in Glyhes the extremes are just added and the other wrong points stay there and you have to delete them. Deleting points in Illustrator means that the curve changes drastically. Glyphs and Fontlab try to keep the curve as good as possible. I would love an option that creates extremes and deletes the unnecessary points. Extremes are very important for interpolating and not only in type tools. Oh, Kerning is not supported in Affinity Designer, is it? Is there an Open Type panel? I think that should be fine for now. I would love to discuss that stuff with you. Hubert
  5. Please add a feature to manual kern, like using [opt]+[arrow] in ai for example.
  6. 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!
