  1. Hi there, I would like to create text following a curved line. I have found a tutorial to do it on affinity DESIGNER but cannot follow it. I have affinity PHOTO. Am i able to write text on a curved line and if so how do i do this? Thank you, Kate
  2. Maybe I don't understand symbols properly, but I have this situation: Create a symbol that contains several text boxes. The "Sync" button is activated. Move one text box around inside the symbol. Location or size of the text box is never synched. Kind of defies the purpose of using symbols if it only works for shapes. When I change the actual text (content) of the box inside the symbol, that gets synched, but the size and position of the text box inside the symbol doesn't get synched.
  3. Hi ! Is it possible to kern whole row or chapter, instead of one character? kr Nikolai Ylirotu Finland

    Having issues with text looking pixelated, shadowy, fuzzy in project. Happens whether I create text within the project or create separate text only (not a pixel layer) document then try to copy/paste into working project.
  6. When I copy and paste from a document it does a block of colour behind the text, how do i remove it? (Picture Attached) Text problem.afphoto
  7. Using iPad Pro 12.9 2nd generation running iOS 11.0 and Affinity Photo 1.6.5 Text, shapes and vectors are rendered in very low quality while working on the document. This, of course, does not happen in the desktop version (Photo or Designer). This is a huge disruption as it is a mayor distraction while working; what you are trying to accomplish is not being presented faithfully on screen. When the document is exported it’s apparently rendered appropriately, yet I can’t see this while working? I’m EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED and you have now idea how much I regret buying this software, and I’m seeing pages upon pages of other bugs being reported :-( Wasn’t this supposed to be desktop quality software for a pro tablet? Attatchments: first photo shows working environment, second photo shows exported file.
  8. Hi and thanks in advance. Is there a way of attaching text to a path inside a circle (see image), I can get it going on the outside but how is it done inside?
  9. Hi, When I paste polish text from LibreOffice to Affinity Photo then single characters disapear after some polish letters: For example, I have written in Libre: ćx ęx śx źx Śx Źx. When I copy it and paste in Affinity Photo, I get: ć ę ś ź Ś Ź. Only one character disapear after these chars. Other polish characters (ą ł ń ó ż Ą Ć Ę Ł Ó Ż) work normally. I don't know what about others unicode chars. Problem appears only when copy and paste from LibreOffice to Affinity. From Libre to Notepad++ is OK. From Notepad++ or Firefox to Affinity is OK. My system: Windows 7 64 I can't upload file ( "There was a problem processing the uploaded file. -200" ), so: copy text below to LibreOffice then copy from Libre to Affinity some X-chars should disappear ąX ćX ęX łX ńX óX śX źX żX ĄX ĆX ĘX ŁX ŃX ÓX ŚX ŹX ŻX
  10. 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.
  11. I'm trying to create an image which contains text on a background. Nothing fancy. Unfortunately, the fonts are all showing up as outlines, with the desired color only forming the outline. I have no idea what's causing this and the unwanted effect is uniform across all fonts. In other words, changing the font won't fix this. How can I restore a "normal" text font?
  12. Hi, AD (Win ver. when opening SVG files ignores the vertical shift of characters in a text... this renders some strange results (see the screenshot of the rendering of the attached file in Inkscape and in AD). test.svg
  13. how i change text to left to right (heb) tnx alot!
  14. Hello, Curious to know what the best (re: easiest) way to create a newspaper-style BIG lead letter that covers a couple lines of text? Very open to tutorials. Many thanks!
  15. I'm hoping someone can help me as it's driving me nuts. I'm guessing I've trigger some change in how mu text fields are displayed when editing. It used to be that I clicked a text box and well just entered or edited the text in it. However, at the moment it's now the box is located significantly below the text, and it's making it really hard to select other text boxes on the page. Can someone tell me how to make it go back. I appreciate that this is probably not 100% clear as to what I'm referring to. So, I've attached an image, note I'm selecting the text and see where the blue outline is. If I want, for example, to highlight a word I need to move down to the blue box and feel around for where I thing that word starts. Not ideal. Please help me turn this rubbish off. . thanks in advance
  16. I'm very new to affinity, and have been working on this piece i've attached. I'm trying to create a shadow effect, but can't seem to figure out how to make it look proper. I've started by doing the orange text bit (which is exactly how I want it to look), I then copied it, flipped it and mirrored it, changed the colour and made the opacity low, but i'm not sure how to alter the "shadow" aspect to look like a shadow. I'm aiming for the light source to me coming from above the "M" at an angle towards the bottom corner of the "C". Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated!
  17. When I export a finished image in any format or setting option from Affinity Photo on my iPad Pro and then I add text to the image from another photo app, the text is not sharp but fuzzy. This only happens after I save an image done in Affinity, never with other images that are done in other digital apps. I try different settings to import the image, but it makes no difference. Why does this happen and is there a way to save it differently so I can later add sharp text? Thank you.
  18. So I encounter this problem ocasionally but it resolves itself usually. Now it's lastinf for some time, even after a restart, etc. The Issue Entering text using Text Tool does not display it. It acts as if it was hidden. The text is shown in some artboards or certain parts of it.

  19. Hello, I was wondering if it was possible to get text to follow into another text box, or to at least create 2 columns? Please can someone let me know if this is possible, Thanks, The Year of The Terrier
  20. I would like to make my own fonts. I saw a video about an add-on for Photoshop and Illustrator, which I think offers some great features. This add-on is called Fontself. It would be amazing to have something like this in Affinity Photo!
  21. I'm working with several layers in AD 1.55 and decided to lock the text layer to avoid disturbing it. But then I noticed that I can still edit that supposedly locked text layer by merely selecting the text tool in the menu and clicking on the text object. Hmmmmmmm. My question: is there any way to actually "fully lock" a text or graphic layer to prevent it from being edited? Or is this a bug and/or feature — because one would assume that locking a layer means "locking out" editing functions. At least that is how it works in some of my other apps — including for recorded musical tracks in a DAW. (I'm using AD 1.55 on an older Intel Mac w/Lion — still within specs.)
  22. I'd like to be able to have my text stretch to fill a shape. Like when you get text to follow a path, but I want one side of the text to stay straight and the other side to follow the curve. Eg the text sits on a line, but the top of the text is stretched up in an arc. Is this possible ? Thanks
  23. I have created a page with a grid of listings (3 × 4). Each listing has a title text frame, an image (masked), a body text frame, and a couple of colour panels, all grouped together. The intention was to create a mock-up for a client, who would be able to edit the text and images herself as needed. To speed up the design process I combined the listing elements into a single symbol, then duplicated it to fill the grid. This meant I could alter the design and immediately see my changes reflected across the whole grid. It worked very well. However, now we’re having trouble detaching each instance of the listing from the symbol. I tried selecting all the placed symbols and selecting Detach from the Symbols panel. This appeared to work, as the instance names in the Layers panel all changed from (Symbol) to (Group) and lost the orange lines to the left of the layer thumbnails. However, nine of the twelve instances are still synchronised, and update if I change one of them. Furthermore, the update is only visible after a zoom change, so it’s not obvious immediately that they have all changed. The other three instances can be edited independently. Even deleting the symbol from the Symbols panel doesn’t fix the issue. I also noticed that the symbols didn’t respond to the “Bring to front” command among themselves. If I had a symbol instance at the bottom of the layer stack and pressed Ctrl+Shift+] the symbol would come forward to the bottom of the stack of symbols. I could move it forward by pressing Ctrl+] to move it one layer at a time. After Detaching them they behave as expected, so Ctrl+Shift+] brings them all the way to the top of the layer stack. I am using AD on Windows 10. I have attached the file in question, after all symbols have been detached. I have replaced most of the text with letters and numbers to indicate which are updating together. Action_Properties_Out_of_Africa_ad_2.afdesign
  24. I understand there is a right dot you can grab and resize, but is there a way to resize using the transformation tool?
