  1. Hi everyone, very new to the program. Trying to move permanently from Adobe. Finding a few things not as user friendly here, but could be a learning curve. So when adjusting the line spacing, I just want it to work exactly as typed. So the example I show, is when showing line spacing for 10, 11, or 12, not change occurs. But when going to 13, it goes way off key. Any ideas?
  2. In Affinity Designer (Mac version 1.10.4), I want to reduce the spacing between two paragraphs. When I choose Text > Paragraph Leading > Decrease it reduces the spacing between all the lines in both paragraphs. The attached image shows where I want the spacing changed. How can I do that? Thanks, Howard
  3. I am under the gun to finish this today, early today and keep having these problems. the symbols around the headers, the paragraph signs and the double SS and if you know, why can't I keep my text confined within my text frame? It starts and ends where it wants to which is not where I want it to. In picture 2 here, the beginning of the subtitle is above the text box and I cannot get it inside. On the right column I dragged the text box down and the overflow of text does not fill it in. Any idea why? I am trying not to panic but I really need help, please!!😛
  4. At this point, I would find a function called "Automatically distribute columns to content" to be extremely useful. This function should do nothing other than automatically distribute the width of the columns based on the content. At this point, I have to go over here and adjust the spacing manually.
  5. Hello! Has anybody ever experienced a locked leading? No matter how I change the leading size, the spacing doesn't change on the text. Please see screenshots of when leading value is different but the spacing remains the same on the actual text. I noticed that this only happens when I copy over existing text on other afpub files. And that actually opens up other problems as well (e.g. stroke outline becomes thicker or thinner when I copy paste from another afpub file) This is really bugging me so much as I work with templates and I have to use pre made layouts over and over again. I hope someone can help.
  6. Hi, It seems Publisher does not allow me to put the line spacing to minus? It seems it always MUST be adjusted not lower than 100%? PLEASE TELL ME I AM WRONG! Please tell me I am just missing a tiny thing somewhere. Super annoyed, bartl
  7. I’m trying to place text on a circular path so that the letters are evenly spaced, but after dragging the start/end handles as far as I can there is still more space between the first and last letters than there is between the other letters (see photo). How can I make it so all the letters have the same amount of space between them on the path? If I drag the end handle any further the final W switches over to the inside of the path.
  8. Hi, I know there is such option, because I saw it, but I somehow disabled it, and I want to re-enable it. Basically, when I was using the arrows to move an object, I could see the spacing between the object I was moving and the nearest objects around it, plus the spacings between the object I was moving and the page margins. Does anyone know how to enable/disable this option? Thanks, Chris
  9. How can I avoid in a text with full justification, the terrible looking automatic spaceing of a single word in a line (not the last line)?
  10. The move from beta to open has been very smooth for me... aside from this one issue. Before, when I set text in a cell of a table to be Vertically Aligned Center, it was actually in the center of the cell. Now, it acts like there's 'space after' that it needs to account for. I've checked all my settings and I cannot figure out why it's doing this. I've included examples of the same cell text being aligned top, middle, and bottom. As you can see, the middle is not actually centered, but the top and bottom alignments are fine. I've even checked the text formatting of this cell and I don't see why it should be doing this weird thing with Aligned Center. Any idea what's causing this? My current workaround is manually doing this with cell inset measurements... but some of my cells have more than 1 line of text, so the adjustment has to be made row by row. :-(
  11. Hello! Does anyone know if it's possible to remove all added tightening/loosening of horizontal space manually applied between letters of words? I'd like to go back to a "clean," unaltered version of the original text. Thank you!
  12. So I’m pretty sure I must have messed up the defaults for the spacing and positioning for typing on Affinity Designer at some point cause they are really messed up. Like if I press space it practicly moves over one pixel, which results in me having to press it 5 times so that you can tell that there is a space there. So I was wondering if anyone is able to help me by having the default settings for the spacing and positioning, or at least tell me how to fix this. Thank you in advance!
  13. Sometimes I like to zoom out and look at one of my layouts but I noticed that with Publisher the pages are so close together that I can't just focus on one layout at a time. In this case I am designing a YouTube thumbnail so I want to see what it will look like reduced way down. With Designer I could just select the art board tool and space the art board apart but there doesn't seem to be a similar solution like this on designer. I would prefer to stay working in Publisher since it is a real design tool. Is there some option for selecting page spacing?
  14. A spacing function that allows us to create a seamless repeating tile would made surface pattern designers dreams come true. Our whole job is to create layered repeating art. These repeats need to look seamless so spacing elements that transfer from one side of the tile/canvas to the other side is key. We then export as PSD or un-compressed TIFF files so our buyers can update the layers later. We usually transfer them with Drop Box. So far Affinity does 90% of what we need. This new function would do the following: when a layer is pushed off one side of the canvas/art board, it appears on the opposite side. This will enable to the user to create a seamless repeating design. I will certainly be blogging about this app and sharing it on social media. If this tile function happens I will be doing 100% of my work on it.
  15. Hi guys, There's an option to hold ctrl and see the distance between an object and other objects, with the first object selected. Can I disable this option? I use it, it's very useful, but not always, and it's sometimes annoying to press Ctrl for something else and see lots and lots of arrow/lines and distances, it's distracting. Thank you, Chris
  16. Hi guys, Affinity has a really cool feature that allows you to see the exact distance between two objects, by holding Ctrl after selecting an object, and hovering another object, and the distance between those object will be shown. It's a really cool feature, but a feature I don't always use. Is there a way to enable/disable it? Thank you, Chris ps: kudos to the awesome community and to a wonderful app.
  17. Hi all, I often need to space objects on the page by a set amount, so the 'space vertically' tool will be something I'll use a lot. The problem is that it's a bit buried in the interface, and for some reason adding the button to the toolbar results in a button that is constantly disabled. If you see the attached screenshot, the button is active in the align menu, but is inactive on the main menu. Any ideas on why that would be? Also, does anyone know of a way to save the spacing value? It would speed up the workflow a bit not having to always enter the value in there. Thanks!
  18. Affinity still lacks dynamic spacing guides as Illustrator and Indesign. It would be a great time saver.
  19. Hi. I just tried Affinity Designer a month ago, and I was hooked. And last week, I bought a license, not disappointed. I am migrating to the AD now. (Formerly I was a user of the big name vector software for years). Here is the feature request. Since I often use AD for web design, I think it really needs the ability to set the character leading to a relative value (like 1.5x or 1.5em or 150%). So when we change the font size, the leading will also be adjusted. Thanks.
  20. Hi Guys Once again another newbie, but I hope you have some brain energy to spare! My current predicament is, even after reading the AD guide, that I'm unable to find a way to equally space rhomboids within my design. My design essentially is a suite of Amor with varying rhomboids to make up the armour, Im looking for a way to make sure that all the pieces have equal distances between them. I have tried the transform tool but this is really restricted to nodes within each curve to a X and Y coordinates which would require a lot of pythagoras! I was thinking is there any way to set equal distance between the lines which the nodes create?
  21. I need the ability to draw across multiple artboards. Currently, even if I arrange artboards next to each other, when I draw a shape across two or more artboards I can only see the part of the shape that fits in the artboard the shape was started in. The same thing happens with text. In the picture I am including I drew a rectangle across two artboards but it only shows on one. I also wrote test across two artboards but it also shows on only one. I am also requesting a way to set up the spacing vertically and horizontally between two or more artboards. For example, set the artboards to be right next to each other at 0" or to be separated by a specific value such as .5" or 3pxls or anything like that.
  22. Hello all, I'm using then new update ( v1.5 ) but I can't seem to find the custom spacing option. I've added the spacing buttons to my toolbar and I've checked the layers menu under "alignment" but I can't find where I can set that all my selected objects are spaced 32px from each other. I used to be able to do that no problem and It's important for me to build custom artboard templates for my team. Did it move, or was it removed? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jimmy Xander
  23. I understand that in your Paragraph dialogue box you use "spacing" rather than "leading." Having said that, I have a very peculiar problem in that I set the spacing in one Frame Text and extend the box vertically to accommodate two lines of text, each line of only two words in caps. It is actually a note on a map, on top of a larger rectangle of color, all under the same main layer. The two lines of text are wrapped with only a space between the last word on the first line and the first word on the second line. This works fine. However, when I enlarge the boxes vertically (text box and rectangle) and keep typing, the leading between the second and third line is much reduced. If I make a copy of that text box with the underlying color rectangle and change text a totally, simply typing the new text in the same box over the top of highlighted old text, the leading now becomes reduced between the first and second lines. I must increase the leading/spacing from my original 48 pts to 60 pts to get the same appearance of line spacing. Both boxes use the "Exactly" setting. Having highlighted all the lines and each line in all of these cases I have carefully checked all of the settings in both the Character and Paragraph dialogue boxes. They are precisely the same. Is this a know problem in AD, or might it be some hidden setting or conflict between the Character and Paragraph? I don't believe so since the font size, leading/spacing, and all of the other settings are exactly the same in both dialogue boxes. Thanks for any word on this. BTW, I've been working in AD now for months and it is difficult to say just what a big relief to use such a user-friendly program (after Freehand, Illustrator, etc.). Thanks for all the work!
