  1. Maybe I didn't search well enough, but I can't find where to specify a number of columns in a text frame. Can someone help, please?

    Circular text

    I’m trying to create circular text on a path, which I can do, but I do not understand how these friggin handles work so that ALL of the text is on the outside of the path. The seems to want to either put it all inside the curve or it will split it. I’m sure it’s just a learning curve, but man, it’s frustrating for something that should be intuitively easy. I have tried a myriad of combinations with the green and red handles to no avail. Help??? thanks!
  3. With Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo v1.6.0.89 I have to press: Ctrl+Shift+> to increase size Ctrl+Shift+< to decrease size and a very nimble fingered: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+> to precise increase Ctrl+Alt+Shift+< to precise decrease I believe the default shortcuts should not require the Shift key option.
  4. Dear Affinity Team, I love your applications and I’m immensely happy about having an InDesign alternative now as well. However, there’s one thing that somewhat annoyed me from the beginning: for the navigation through text you chose the Adobe shortcuts instead of the native macOS shortcuts. This is rather disturbing if you’re a keyboard person and constantly using Apple’s iWorks suite as well as different text editors. As I somewhat understand that you want to make the switch easy for Adobe users, why not add the “Text shortcuts” as listed on your help site to the keyboard shortcuts customisation in the settings? You can even do this in Adobe programs. Example Moves cursor to start of word: macOS native: ⌥← (which is Text/Spacing/Tighten in Affinity or Adobe) Affinity: ⌘← (which is Moves cursor to start of line in macOS native shortcuts) I wrote something similar a few years back and I am not the only one disturbed by this. Cheers, Hagen.
  5. I am just working on my first major publication with Affinity Publisher and it is a pleasure to work with. But, as I'm creating a tekst frame, my fonts (I'm working in Calibr 14pt, regular) turns really weird and instead of having the Calibri font (although my settings seem to be correct), I get a fat black tekst that can not even be read. It's surely a setting somewhere, but I'm lost. Thanks Patrick
  6. I know how to attach text to a curve in designer, but can't find the option in photo. Does it exist? If so, where is the feature / button TIA, Jeff
  7. When typing text in a Photoshop document, there is a popup available that displays the following anti-aliasing options: None Sharp Crisp Strong Smooth The addition of these would make Affinity Photo's type handling even more powerful. Thanks.
  8. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  9. Why does the artistic text in Harrington font have a black outline and the same words made with the frame text tool do not?
  10. I am new to Affinity Designer and Publisher so I may have something setup wrong. When using the frame text tool in Designer, I am unable to get the text to automatically flow to the next line when it reaches the end of the frame. Also, when I try to utilize a soft return (option+shift+return) to force the the text to the next line, the text starts again on the same lime. Attached are screen shots, the 1st showing the text not dropping to the next line in the frame, and the 2nd showing the text starting again on the same line when using a soft return. What am I missing or doing wrong? Thanks or your help.
  11. Hello everyone! Right now I can't figure out how to change the background color of the Text tool in Affinity Designer. The default one seems to be white but I would want to change it. Thanks for your answer in advance!
  12. I have pictures inserted into text with jump option to let text above and under picture. I want the picture to be centered on the page. When I set the anchor for a picture it stores vertical and horizontal position. Then il the text is modified the image moves to follow the new anchor position. That's great if a line of text is added or removed but if only a few words are added ou removed, the horizontal position of the picture isn't accurate any more... I should recenter it manually... that's really boring for me because I have a lot of such images. Is there anything I missed to let me fix the horizontal position of the image but not the vertical one ? Hope you could me the way...
  13. Hi, I am new to Affinity Designer. I'm using the current version, not a beta. I'm trying to make white text in a black text box. I can't seem to get this working out right. I want like to apply this to a selection of texts, not just one. This is for a numbered scale I'm making, to be pasted on equipment that's to be used in the dark. That will be white text on a black background. The black text box is cause i want to overlay white index marks on a black background. Am I making sense? :-) Thank you very much. James
  14. This drives me crazy! When entering text in a text frame Publisher always capitalizes the first word of a sentence and I can't find a way to turn this off! I type in the first word of a sentence and all is fine (first screenshot) and the moment I press the space bar the first character in the word gets capitalized (second screenshot). The same also goes for tables, by the way. Anyone here knows if this can be turned off or is it a known bug?
  15. Windows 10 Home 1903, Publisher 1.7.1.404. It will be easier for you to watch the attached GIF than me trying to explain what’s going on. Workflow to replicate: * Create a Rectangle; * Convert it to Curves; * Convert it to a Text Frame; * Add Filler text; * Give the Text Frame some Insets; * (Optional: Give the text frame a background colour and the text a different background colour); * Drag one vertex of the shape so the shape is significantly concave. Note where all of the text except the first word disappears when the shape becomes significantly concave. The insets may account for some of the text going missing but there is more than enough space remaining to put more text. I think it’s worth saying that I don’t think many people would want to actually do this but it’s possible. The effect doesn’t always happen, it just depends on which vertex you drag. In my example, dragging either of the bottom two vertices seems to be fine but dragging either of the top two vertices shows the problem. (Dragging both the top two vertices together is also fine.) I’ve tried this with Baseline on and off and get the same thing so that doesn’t seem to be a cause of the problem.
  16. Please support Japanese vertical writing. This is the function most needed by Japanese. Website with detailed explanation: https://w3c.github.io/jlreq/#vertical-writing-mode-and-horizontal-writing-mode Adobe uses this because it supports vertical writing in Japanese. This is the only reason why I and my workplace cannot adopt “Affinity”. If this problem is solved, “Affinity” may become the top share in the Japanese market. Can Japanese donate development costs to support vertical writing in Japanese? In Japan, Adobe dominates the market. That is not good. The Japanese market requires the emergence of competitors that compete with Adobe. I hope that Affinity plays an active role for Japan.
  17. Not sure if this is an issue or a limitation of Publisher. When I use the text tool I cannot zoom in or out. For example — If I am typing in a text box and I want to make a font bigger or smaller I cannot just zoom out, the zoom only works once I click the pointer tool, click off the text box and then zoom out. It's a very simple process but the idea that I have to change the tool, click off the text box, zoom out... and then re-select the text tool and then re-select the text box is a pain in the backside. Surely there is something I'm doing wrong...?? or is that just a limitation of the program and it's un-able to do that? Any help would be much appreciated.
  18. Hey guys, I was recently designing a brochure in Publisher and I was simply trying to scale a group but for whatever reason it was not working how I thought it should work. Example - I had 2 placed images, a vector curve and some copy and headline text in a group. I wanted to scale the group proportionally and make it bigger, but when I did so the images and the vector curve scaled correctly and the headline text and copy pretty much stayed the same size. No matter which way I tried to do this it didn't work...I just ended up doing this manually (scaling the text manually and separately even though the headline and text was in a group) not sure what I'm doing wrong but I hope it's a simple fix..... This seems like a basic thing to be able to do (works in Indesign haha) Thanks in advance.
  19. I work a lot with Japanese texts and this would be my request feature number 1. When you are writing in horizontal, you can change your selected text to vertical orientation. (When I tried , that bar didn't flip from horizontal to vertical.) Like this example: (カレー). (This is wrong writing) x (This is acceptable) カ カ レ レ x ー > | That also works inside Text Editor for mac, when you go to Layout Orientation > Vertical. My other suggestion is to add something like World and iPages that is called > Phonetic Guide Text. (It's used for both Japanese and Chinese called Furigana or Ruby) Japanese Indesign has all these features for writing in Japanese too. Arigatou!
  20. I use quite an exotic language on my devices - Polish - which belongs to the quite large group of languages unsupported by Affinity. That wouldn’t actually be a problem for me if not the auto-correction feature - which is not synchronized with the system-wide auto-correction, because my system language is Polish and when using text tools Affinity always mark all my Polish words as wrong . And again that wouldn’t be a problem (until I do some orthographic mistake) because auto-correction can be easily switched off in text tool settings (Check spelling while typing) but the problem is: if I turn it off in one document, it reverts back on when I close the document and enter it, or any other again. So the result is: always when I enter a document with text I’m welcomed by unfriendly red squiggly (unless I design something English) I tried using both “English” and “Default” setting in language option in Designer’s settings.

  21. I defined a paragraph style with an initial over three lines. On the masterpage it displays the right way, but on the layout pages it streches over 5 lines.

  23. 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)?
  24. Blending modes in Appearance panel do not work for text. 1.7.2.471 blending_modes_test.afdesign
  25. Hello, I wont to have a sqare reaching in the corner of a text filed. So the text in the fileld should not run into the Square. Thats works so fare with the test wrapping settings. But now I want to place the page number into this square. this smaller textfield should lay on the square. This textfield is also effected by the text wrapping of the square.
