  1. Why does the "Typographie" window only allow me to superscript certain characters? It works only on numbers 1-3 and very few other characters. If I select a 4, or an a, or most other characters the option just is not there. How do I superscript those other numbers?
  2. In a text box if the paragraph is set on "justify all" the last line must be "left justify" for not have too many spaces between words. Please see the sample below. Thank you.
  3. Granted it took Adobe something like 20 years to put this feature into Illustrator, so I'm not expecting this to appear overnight, but is there a way to convert between these two kinds of text types?
  4. There seem to be a big performance hit when text wrap (tight, both sides) is applied to grouped vector graphics. Spinning ball everything halt for about 5-6 seconds.
  5. Latest build release seem to double the text pasted in a text frame. Anyone else having the same issue?
  6. It would be great if the Table Text Tool would support pasting of data (they are usually tab separated) from a spreadsheet like Google Sheets oder Microsoft Excel. At the moment this is not possible and leads to a huge amount of work to create e.g. offers. Another, more advanced feature would be to link an existing spreadsheet table or at least CSV data directly to the Table Text Tool. What do you think about it?
  7. Hi all, i'm very new to affinity and photo editing in general. I have a picture in which I've added a layer of text. It seems that I once it's created, I can't edit the text however. clicking on it with the pointer tool selects it, or the background behind it, but won't let me edit. clicking on it with the text tool just starts a new text layer on top of the old one. I must be doing something wrong on a basic level. Any ideas? I've attached my project if anyone cares to open it up and have a look. I'm on a mac, sierra OS. affinity v 1.5.2 Thanks!!

  8. When layouting, for example, white text on dark grey background the text cursor (not the mouse i-beam)is nearly invisible at the most left edge of the text frame. In Indesign it was not ideal either, but at least they offset it by 1 pixel in so the frame-edge gets double width. Also: the selection colour is just an simple overlay-color instead of inverting the selection, as was standard for over twenty years of dtp-software... I'm sure today there are more advanced blending modes possible to highlight an area.
  9. Applying the "no break" option results in text expanding beyond the text frame. Happening since 1.7.0.58 version.
  10. Hi, I made by coincidence a background for my text but I dont know how. Could you tell me please? Thanks a lot!

    Text in shape

    Is it possible, either in desktop (Mac) or iPad versions of Affinity Design, to constrain text to a shape as in the attach picture? many thanks
  12. I can't seem to find an easy way to insert a quote mark - either single or double. I can go to the Glyph Browser, select General Punctuation from a drop-down and double-click the mark(s) I need but this seems a bit of a hassle for this kind of simple task. I looked in the Help but couldn't see anything, and I couldn't find anything in the Text menu either. Am I overlooking something? When copying text from, say, a word processor, it's usual for the quote marks to be the straight ones, rather than the proper curly ones, so it would be nice to have a simple way of replacing them. (It would also be great if they can be accessible via a keyboard shortcut, but just somewhere in a menu would be okay.)
  13. I am trying to recreate the text used in patents back in the mid-1800s. I have found it extremely difficult to do with Affinity Designer and Illustrator (in the past). I have purchased Affinity Designer for the MAC but I fall into the casual user category. I have scanned the internet for help with little luck. I am not trying to create a new font set but just trying to create a clean copy of the attached United States Patent Office text as a vector image or whatever works the easiest. This is being used to recreate some old patents since very clean and crisp copies are not available. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Steve
  14. I am in the midst of creating a multi-page test document and I am stumped trying to find a paragraph rules option. Is such an option available in the Beta? If so, where can I find it? Otherwise I really do hope it will be included in a future update.
  15. I would like to see Affinity Publisher have built-in world-ready paragraph composer. This function would generate a very nice text handling (both on screen and on printout). No unnecessary spacing between words. Currently InDesign give us nicer text output - but a future Affinity Publisher with world-ready paragraph composer should give equal nice text output as InDesign.
  16. Is there a way to change the 'no style' default text to one of my choosing? Or at least to remove the 12pt 'space after' attribute?
  17. As it appears to be, tables are treated as independent floating objets, as are images and shapes. Can a table be inserted on a text, so the contents of the table flow through linked text frames? On our workflow is a very regular occurrence, as we do a lot of financial and management reports with large tables spreading through pages that must flow with the text. Also this bring the question about table headers, so the header appears at the start of each page where the table is divided and it seems this option is not available at this moment. This is one of the few things that i could miss from InDesign, as it treat tables as text elements inside text frames (as also does Word and other apps)
  18. Hi all, my first post here. I am using photoshop since CS2 and I am pretty good in it. Never the less it became to expensive for me to use it just once in a while so I decided to buy Affinity Photo. Great programm so far. I have just one question: Since AP doesnt behave like it is said in the helpfile I was wondering, if I am doing something wrong. I just want to place a text on a path or curve. I create the path/curve and select the text tool. It is said, that the curser would change, when I come next to the curve with the tool selected. But that little devil mouse icon wont change. Hence I cant wrap my text along the curve. Am I missing something here? A simple checkbox somewhere to click? Any hint will be much appreciated. I found a lot of hints for Affinity Designer, but that differs to Photo. Hopefully someone can give me a tip. Many thanks in advance. cheers Marcus
  19. In playing around in recreating a template I currently use in InDesign, I noticed there's no option to set up Text Styles to align the text towards/away from the spine. This would be a hugely helpful for setting layout for large multi-page documents!
  20. Oh boy, I have so been looking forward to this app finally being available! I can't install the beta until tomorrow to experiment and the videos at this stage don't mention it, but can we place imported long text and have it flow to (ideally auto-inserted) 'next pages' until all of it is placed? I'd hate to have to produce a 400-page book by drawing and linking each text box, page by page. Fingers crossed ...
  21. I have a project where the program crashes completely when I try to change something in the text. I tried with different text parameters. I can do other things, but when I want to correct the text, it hangs. I noticed that this happens only now when I started using the text frame tool. I have one thing to improve for the client and I can not do it. The program hangs so fast that I was able to try several times in a minute. I upload the file so you can check this out.

  22. It has been happening since a day that whenever I am trying to change the fonts and I go to the dropdown menu in text options Affinity Photo freezes...on Mac High Sierra. The beachball goes on and on and I have to force quite and restart the app but even after several attempts it hangs as soon as I touch the fonts selection dropdown either in the floating window or the the top shelf. This has made it unusable. Has anybody else experienced this? Is there a solution to this bug?
  23. How can I make the right align of a text frame respect the spaces at the end of a line? Right now, if the last characters of a line are spaces, the line is aligned by its last visible character, not the last character of the line. I am trying to indent lines from the right.
  24. I'm an amateur in designing. I use it mostly for creating one sheets and artwork for my novels. While creating my recent project, my text isn't appearing. I click on the text tool and then double click where I want the text to appear. I get the blinking cursor but when I begin to type nothing appears. ( I have a visible color—I'm using black on a gray image.) I thought maybe my image was in front of the text and so I arranged my text to the front, and the words still didn't appear. A layer tag appears in the right side bar revealing what I've typed, but nothing appears on my project. This has never happened to me before. Anyone know what to do?
