  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. The text on the bottom half on a circle is always upside down and is unreadable and stupid. I'VE RESEARCHED FOR TWO HOURS and can't find a solution. Flipping doesn''t help, baseline doesn't help, nothing helps. Take a look at the file. ANY HELP WOULD BE NICE. FYI Type on a path is the only reason I use affinity designer.
  5. I attached a screenshot below. My question is - how do I manipulate text like the picture to curve/warp only the bottom or top part of the text? I understand that I would likely have to convert the layer to curves. But after that, what would I do to keep the top of the text on a line, and and curve the bottom of the text as it looks in the picture. The red lines are added to emphasize what I mean. Thanks!
  6. Hello - Is there a way to visually differentiate between (real) Text vs Text that has been converted to Curves, when viewing in Outline View Mode? As it stands, I only see a "wireframe" outline of the text which looks exactly like the text that has been converted to path curves. In the first example below, the top is still text and the bottom have been converted to curves. This makes it difficult to understand which element group is actual text vs. paths when working in Outline View mode. Sorry if I've overlooked a function or feature. Otherwise, would love to see a feature like I'm showing in the second image where the text is solid black in outline mode.
  7. When I click the 'Character' or 'Paragraph' button on the Context Toolbar in Affinity Designer 1.6.1, the corresponding panel is not displayed. The same is true if I select 'Text' > 'Show Character' or 'Text' > 'Show Paragraph' from the menu (or press ⌘T). 'Text' > 'Show Text Styles' and 'Text' > 'Show Glyph Browser' do not seem to do anything either. However, 'Text' > 'Show Typography' does work.
  8. Hi there, I am very new at Photoshop, let alone Affinity Photo. I am exporting a PSD for someone, but when they go to edit the text, they can't. They can move it, delete it, but not edit the actual text. Is there something I am missing? A setting when I am exporting? Thank you for your advice and insight. Sarah E.
  9. Hi, I'm working on a file at the moment and suddenly the colours won't change in it. I'm selecting everything properly and using the eyedropper and nothing is happening. Again, this isn't an problem with selecting objects. It literally only happens in this one file. Perhaps I've selected something I shouldn't have? Thanks for your help.

    Reverse Text Path

    I was wondering if the "reverse text path" feature that is on the desktop version of Affinity Designer will be on the iPad version. I use that feature a ton on the desktop and find it super useful. If it is on the iPad version already please ignore this Thanks for an amazing app!
  11. Hi there! I've encountered some little glitches regarding the handling of text (and text frames). Nothing dramatic, however, it could be improved: Working with the German edition of AD the local decimal seperator (a comma instead of a dot) is accepted in almost all input fields, but not in the input field for the line height in the context menu (see screenshot). When editing text the viewport does not move along with the cursor. One must therefore manually move the document up or down by using the scrollbars in order to be able to edit text that is within the same frame but outside the current viewport. And soft hyphens still get printed (already reported previously). Best, Volker
  12. Hello! Cannot find option to convert text in curves? How I can do it? Thx!
  13. I have a map with all kinds of different text boxes. As with the immense amount of those, i'd thought i'd suggest that it would be quite nice to be able to change all fonts within a folder so that i could update my complicated folder structure with ease. Obviously there could be more expansions to that feature such as additional font settings or maybe specific RGB increments for all contained shapes etc. Thank you very much!
  14. Whenever I doubleclick on a textframe to adjust it to its content, Affinity Designer crashes. This happens mostly in documents with multiple artboards and groups/layers.
  15. Hi there, I am in love with Affinity Designer and excited for more new features to come with the future updates. One of the features I'd like to request is vertical writing for languages like Japanese. Right now, I press enter letter by letter to make them lined up vertically, but it is a bit of a headache when it comes to hyphens, periods, commas and etc. I wonder if you guys could consider implementing this writing format for the future updates. I'm sorry if this function already exists, but can anyone kindly let me know how? thanks
  16. The Artistic Text Tool does not display Emoji characters. Please add this to the ATT, thanks Please see also the attached video, maybe I do something wrong, if so, I appreciate any help and hints. Artistic Text Tool 2018-05-25 09-14-54.mp4 Cheers, Roland
  17. How do you set text to run around a photograph
  18. As i can see right now i cant get PSD's with editable text layers from Affinity Designer. And i'm often asked for PSDs of stuff i'm designing. So i'd like to have like dropdown menu (like those that already are in PSD export dialogue) asking me if i want to export text as editable text layers or if i want it to be smart object or anything else.
  19. When resizing text, for some text frames, the resize handle snaps to something, like so: For other text frames, it snaps to something, a guide in this case, but actually isn't on the guide. Both cases are not what I would expect, which is the text frame snapping to i.e. the guide. Also the help description in the status bar doesn't match the actual behaviour: It says "Shift to preserve aspect ratio." when it should say "Shift to ignore aspect ratio." text_resize.afdesign
  20. Hello, I really need this feature for a project. How to make a text link to a url with AD? Is it possible ? If not, do you know an other way to put it ? Thank you. Regards. Bilel

    Text export to pdf problem

    Hello , I have realised a problem while exporting text in PDF. When I use some fonts (e.g. Asap Regular), the text is not exported correctly. I have already tried the different PDF-export options and I am still having problems. In the images you can see how the text looks like in Affinity Designer and how it is exported. I have this issue since Affinity Designer version 1.6. Thank you very much! Kind regards, MonsieurMey
  22. Hello! I am new to Affinity Designer, and trying to get into graphic design/logo design. Recently i have tried out some of AD's tools and features, but i'm struggeling with something. I want to split/seperate a text layer into 2 pieces, but i can't seem to manage this. I have read that i have to make the text layer into curves, and use the ''node tool'' to point where to split between, but this does not work for text, only shape. I would appreciate it someone have a solution to this! :)
  23. Draw a curve and rotate it any degree (screen shot 1), click the reset selection box and it looks great! (Screen shot 2), now convert it into a text frame, type anything and the text will be rotated! (Screen shot 3). I was expecting that after applying the "reset selection tool" button, the curve will keep this property in the future, but it goes back if you convert the curve into a text frame. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong. If there is another way to do it, please let me know, but it will be great if it can work also in this way. Thank you for creating this great software.
  24. Hello there, So I'm a website designer, and I would like to design in Affinity Designer more. I found a problem though that is preventing me from doing that full-time...When I export my files to PSD (for handing over to developers) and open them in Photoshop, the text layers appear as image/raster layers and aren't editable. Please help. This is a very important issue for me to resolve. I cannot proceed with using Affinity Designer if our dev team can't edit the texts. Other than this, I am really loving this software. Please help. Thanks, Eli
  25. After a while in Designer, keyboard input for hotkeys (e.g. P, Ctrl+J, Ctrl+S) and Art/Frame text input do not work. Keys like Shift/Ctrl when transforming an object in the viewport still work, as well as zooming using Ctrl+Scroll, and property text input (e.g. names, transform values, brush size, etc.) still work. I've noticed that this is usually preceded by Designer freezing for a couple of seconds, and then once it resumes the issue starts. The issue can be fixed by restarting Designer, until it freezes again. Note that this issue only happens on this specific laptop and not on my Windows 10 and Windows 7 desktops. The issue has started recently - in the last one or two updates most likely. My specs: Windows 10 x64 Laptop Intel HD Graphics 620 & NVIDIA GeForce 940MX Intel i5 7200U Quad Core
