  1. [English] I use Affinity publisher. I arrange frame text tool and type Japanese characters (Uploaded Images green box). But the small window (Uploaded Images blue box) appears, and I can't directly type Japanese characters to frame text. Could you tell me how to solve it? [日本語] affinity publisherを使用しております。テキストボックスを配置し(画像の緑の四角)、テキスト入力を行ったところ、 左上に日本語入力用の小窓が表示され(画像の青の四角)、テキストが直接入力できません。 解決方法を教えていただけないでしょうか。
  2. Hi, I've the following scaling issue: I have a logo that consists of several shapes and 2 text paths. The logo is used as a symbol, in different layouts for mobile and web screens. How can I scale the logo including its child-objects (the 2 text on paths), without loosing the correct visual appearance of the logo? If I scale the logo (the whole object) down: - the text wraps around the curves (as it is described in the AD help) - that means I have my big logo (which looks good) a smaller logo with to large text, so I have to modify the text separately on the smaller logo (the instance of the symbol). But if I do so, I loose the correct visualization on the other symbols (the original, the bigger ones). And vice versa. An infinite loop... 1.) I need an option like "scale with object" as it exists for layerFX or 2.) the default scaling behavior of text on paths must be like that Thanks a lot for your time, your ideas, your help, Stefan.
  3. Project made previously on Windows (Affinity Publisher), on Mac is not displaying text and other elements that are inherited from Master Pages. Text and graphics are selectable but not visible. Problem occurs after reopening file in Publisher >> During first edit everything works flawlessly; when you close project and reopen it - you have to be prepared to face this issue. ** It is probably occurs when you change layout (facing pages >> single pages and vice versa).
  4. I am transitioning from InDesign to Affinity Publisher. I have an InDesign document that has text with a black stroke and green fill. The letters really pop! (I'm attaching a sample.) Is there any way to achieve this effect in Publisher?
  5. Hi I’m trying to print out an image which has been put together with various elements and text tool. I’ve done lots of others in this way but for some reason this particular one keeps printing out with a line through the same 2 words despite it not appearing on the screen....HELP PLEASE!!
  6. Hello. Not sure of the correct terminology to use for a forum search, but I would like to cut text out from a shape that has a solid colour fill? Any ideas where to look for info on this type of technique? Much appreciated. Cheers
  7. Affinity Publisher: When preparing a publication I use at least 5 - 6 different text styles. After creating them I see only one at a time in style panel, so I have to move up and down to apply the desired style. How to expand style panel or make it autoexpandable. Thank for advice.
  8. When I started using Affinity products first, I thought it's not possible to import PSD file and edit the texts. However, I searched on Google and came to know that it's quite possible by turning on "Import PSD text as text rather than bitmap" option on the Preferences. It'd be great if we see this option turned on by default on the upcoming updates What do you think friends?
  9. Hello, Become crazy about tempting moving text above or below a path… The default text setting along path working fine but if you move the cursor to change the starting point or the text above the path, the first letter just jump at the beginning of the path… Please see png attached for more explanation and original file too. Best, Affinity Designer 1.7.3 / MacOSX 10.11.6 with MacPro 3,1 (I will try later on Mojave on another Mac) Affinity_Designer_Text_along_path_bug.afdesign
  10. Hi there! I've just purchased Affinity Designer today. But seems like Show Special Characters is missing. Or maybe I'm not able to find it. Could you please help me finding this option? Many thanks! Have a nice weekend! Best regards Tamzid
  11. 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?
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. Why does the artistic text in Harrington font have a black outline and the same words made with the frame text tool do not?
  19. 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.
  20. 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!
  21. 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...
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
