  1. Hey guys, When viewing the distance between objects, on dark backgrounds the distance text is barely visible. I literally can't read it at all. I posted a screenshot. Thanks
  2. Hello, I wold really like to see more text transformation tools so that we can make varied typography designs. Warp text and fish, etc. would be very helpful for logos, products, and printables.
  3. Hi, i have a problem when open PSD file. I cannot edit text layer? Is to possible to fix it ? In photoshop this layer is editable. Thanks.
  4. Affinity Designer 1.6.1 Hello there. I think this one is kind of bug. Type Korean text. Wait awhile or switch to other application. Noticed frame text layers after then. I have no idea where is it from. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Best regards. Cyrus. TypeKorean_720.mov
  5. Hi, maybe you all experts now hos to do this, and there might be a built in help with this issues. I am on a Ipad Pro 10.5" latest IOS. I use this software everyday when I create my infographs. BUT... When I have created a text and desided a fontsize before i starts writing, It all goes fine, but when I the try to change the size of the text with the "mark border" that appear when i selct it. I then try tograb the corners to resize text, its inpossible, the only thing thats happens is that you move the total text, or junps into annediting mode. I need som help here, I create graphics and then text, I need to be able afterwards to change an manipulate the size and alignment. regards Petr
  6. Dobrý den Mám otázku. Je nyní možné exportovat v affinity photo soubor do PSD s tím, že vrstvy textové vrstvy budou i nadále textové vrstvy a ne pixel vrstvy? Vím že tato otázka byla řešena už několikrát, a že v ní padlo, že se tímto problémem budete v budoucnu zaobírat. Jak to prosím vidíte výhledově. Nyní je rok 2018, bude to ještě tento rok, nebo vůbec? Děkuji za odpověď Lukáš Sládek
  7. Feature requests 1. Stop Tab Ruler The current stop tab panel is rather frustrating, and often these things need to be designed rather than calculated. The same sort of thing as in Word, Illustrator, InDesign, Quark Xpress 2. Text box overflow Currently the text in a box flows out of the bottom of a text box. I read the reasoning why, however at concept stage (especially when using dummy text) I find myself having to delete lots and lots of Latin text, only to have to re-paste it in a few moments later once I've changed font size / box size etc. 3. Text box linking It would be really great if there was an option so that you could choose if the text flowed out of the bottom of the text box. Likewise the option of linking / flowing content between text boxes would be super-helpful. I know that these may appear more like options for a DTP package rather than illustration program, however there's often need, especially web concepts. Thanks
  8. Hi, I use Affinity Designer on Mac OS 10.12.6. I found copying and pasting text from Affinity Designer to other applications work on office apps such as Pages, Numbers and TextEdit, BUT it doesn't work on any web browsers, Adobe apps, coding apps, etc. I have to always copy and paste the text to TextEdit first, and then, to other apps I mostly use. I thought it's kind of minor bugs to be fixed soon with future updates, but after using Affinity Designer over a year and I still have this problem and getting tired of it Is anyone experiencing or aware of this?
  9. If i copy text - either as a block OR within the block as text - and try to paste it to another app - i get nothing. This is very frustrating as sometimes i creat copy for say a flyer .. in the app, and then i can't reuse it. Also kind of unbelievable. Copying between apps was one of the Mac's claims to fame, back with it came out in the eighties. Note i do have Alfred 2.0 running with multiple clipboard pastes - works for everything else.
  10. Argh. Created 3 x 120º segments (yes, to form a circle, thank you ) that were to hold text. I then spent the next half hour fighting the evil "text on a path" demons again, so eventually I gave up and created three plain circles so *I* was in control instead of whatever creation method was at the heart of a shape. Is there no way to tell a text on a text path to ignore the previous history of the shape that created the path (read: being flipped, rotated, mirrored, turned inside out and covered in bees - ANYTHING) and offer some options to solely make the TEXT flip, go into mirror mode, write backwards or upside down? As in controlling the actual component you are working instead of a hard and mostly invisible dependency on the characteristics and previous life of the underlying shape that created the path? I think adding that control to the text part would IMHO rather massively reduce the pain of text on a path. The present approach basically forbids the use of any normal shape manipulations such as flipping and mirroring because you end up paying dearly for that later when you convert it to a text path. You cannot flip or mirror the text on its own as you end up flipping the shape with it, which you then have to undo the effects of. Moving control to where it belongs ought to help.

  11. When I have two texts like this: "123456" and then "yay" and select this two text and want arrange it vertically to the some object with align bottom, they are aligned good but text with special characters, because text have some base line and there are characters which are out of this line (ypj... they are below). I mean when text like "123 abc..." it is ok, but when I write "yjp" and other signs which are extra sized (I am sorry, don't know describe it in english), because their base is lower then others, then text is aligned higher then other text without this extra characters, because bounding box take the extra sized characters. Question is, is there posibility change the bounding box to the base text line?
  12. Hi. Brand new to Designer and have a question about how to type on a path in a specific way. I'm hoping to move away from Adobe CC and this one feature will make or break my decision... I make and sell address stamps. They're all personalized to the buyer. In Adobe Illustrator, the solution is very easy to do but I can't figure out how to convert the bottom line (address section) so that it reads like the first image. The 2nd image shows what I have so far for the bottom. What I can't figure out is how to reverse and invert the bottom line. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  13. Hi everyone, Is there any way other than perspective distortion or maybe mesh-warp to transform/skew text like in the image?
  14. Completely new to this so not sure what I'm missing. In photoshop I could change the fonts just by having the text layer selected and scrolling through the list of fonts that I have. That doesnt seem to work in Designer. After I've typed in something and press enter I get a layer with all the letters on separate layers under it and picking different fonts doesn't change anything. How do you change fonts after you've typed in something?
  15. I'm a new user to Affinity and I'm looking for a tutorial on how to add text to an image that looks like it was written in sand. I've googled this and can only find tutorials for Photoshop. Anyone have experience with this and can provide instruction?
  16. In marathi/hindi language, words have joined syllables. But In P*******p I couldn't do that even if I pasted it from the google translate. So I found this solution in P*******p where you can change things in preferences. But Can't find the solution for affinity. Please Help! I have a lot of projects in marathi. I have attached the screenshot. This is the solution for P*******p: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2102748
  17. we really need these 2 tools for Designer: text envelope (example: to make the curved baseline of Netflix logo) text path (example: to make the text follow the circle around Starbucks Coffee logo) aside from that, i think another tool required is contour tool, but it's already mentioned in the previous thread. thanks developers!
  18. So I've googled to see how to make curved text/ text following path of shape but it seems like they are either outdated or simply does not work? not sure if it's some kind of glitch or it was changed, just not updated on documents. I've seen tutorial of clicking shape then use text tool on top of it but it didn't work, nor manually selecting it from LAYER to convert shape into path (Convert to Path wasn't under layer tab. I'm assuming that it was outdated tutorial cause that tutorial was made 2 years ago-ish). Thank you.
  19. I've got a few shapes where, at some point in the past, I've flipped them horizontally. To my surprise, when I filled them with text, the text was also reversed. Is there a way to tell Affinity to not keep that information hanging around, and just make the text object normally? Personally I feel like it shouldn't behave this way (if I wanted reversed text, I'd flip it after adding the words). There are work arounds, like combining some geometry, even if it doesn't alter the shape, will resolve the issue. Thanks!
  20. Hello, I just opened a psd file with Affinity, and when I try to change the Leading of a text field (frame text) to 20 for example, I get 1.4, or other small random values. Cheers, Chris
  21. I have a layer of place names on a map. I've applied 'MyStyle 1' to them all as I've typed them in. I can change their look by just editing 'MyStyle 1'. So far, so good. If I click the layer, all the place names are selected but if I try to now apply 'MyStyle 2' to them it doesn't work. I have to actually select all the items in the layer to change the applied style. That doesn't seem quite right to my way of thinking. Is this a bug, are the correct way of working?
  22. Hey there, After working on Affinity Designer for a month now. I'm always thrown off by the inconsistency of using shift while scaling an object/text. By default when you scale a text or a group Affinity Designer scales it proportionately without having to hold shift. But if you hold shift you get to do a free form transform on the text or group. However when you select a single object or multiple objects (not group) at once Affinity Designer by default lets you do free form transform. But when you hold shift that changes to scaling it proportionately for a single object or multiple objects (not group). I find this at least in Adobe Illustrator it's consistent with what shift does. I would know always that holding shift will let me scale all things proportionately. How does everyone feel about that? Thanks!
  23. When adding a new text object it is always being added to the top of the artboard rather than where you are actually working at / expecting it to go
  24. When an object style created using the effects panel is applied to text it is applied the the text as a single object. This has undesired effects with specular highlights, lights and bevels. in the attached image I created some artistic text and then below it I typed each letter as an individual object. In the gel text you can see how the top example which is a single typed word the highlights aren't right and the colours from additional lights added via the 3d effect are applied to the text as a whole. I the second gel text example you see how I wanted the style to look. I the cookie example the bevel looks all wrong in the top example and below again with each letter individually typed you see how the effect should look. Note for this report I am not worrying about the squashing of the bitmap fill as I believe that is another issue that has already been reported.
  25. I am a rank beginner in midst of a trial for Designer. Could you give me a step-by step to create a simple piece. Shapes, filled in different colors, say identical rounded rectangles Inside these shapes, simple text in black. Text not to be shape fills or arty type, but plain, linear text. Alignment of these shapes, and the text within the shapes. Desired results: a set of colored shapes with the black text inside them visible over the colored backgrounds. What should be my sequence of layers? I would assume Shape(s) covered by transparent-background text layer(s), but I cannot seem to achieve this. The text layer obliterates the shape. I am clearly doing something wrong, but what? This software seems to be what I want, but I am having a struggle breaking into it.
