    Japanese text bugs

    When I type some texts in Japanese and convert to Kanji with space key, all types were selected. So When I press enter or space key and continue typing, characters that last time I typed are varnished. I have to press right cursor key to continue typing each time. It doesn't occur when I type on Word , Memo, and Other Apps. text_bug.mov
  2. Is there a way to put the text on a curve on the inside of the arc? I made a circle then converted to curves, then broke apart at both sides. I now have two arcs one on top and one on the bottom. I want the text to be on top of the top arc which is how it does it and all is fine. But on the bottom I want the text to be on the inside of the line. I can't seem to find a way to do that. I tried playing with the start triangle but ended up with the text backwards. Can someone explain how to do this please? Thanks Sig
  3. Hello Serif Team, i have a request for a possibility to generate Loren ipsum text that we can use for design projects to be considered for coming versions. it's very useful to have a possibility to fill in text box or create titles with Loren ipsum, it helps a lot for those among us who create design samples they would like to sell or present to clients or project team as free to modify stuff? Even the coming Apub should have that functionality too !
  4. Can you add Arabic text option to affinity (PHOTO and DESIGN) Because the Arabic letters are not connected to each other when I type any kind of word so if this issue gets fixed it will helps me a lot and thank you Architecture engineer : Red.
  5. I’m designing a University Style Logo in Affinity Designer, and am using the font you can see in the photos. I’m using a white fill, black stroke and white fx outline. I’m trying to make it so that the black stroke is essentially 100% transparent, so that the stroke takes the colour of the fabric it is printed on. I’ve scoured the internet for how to do this but found no answers. I’ve tried converting to curves and subtracting the black stroke from the white letter behind and nothing. Any help would be tremendous. Thank you.
  6. This is my first post. I hope this is the right place to report the following bug. System: Windows 7 SP1, German Version: Affinity Designer 1.6.2.97 --- I often use Roboto Light as a base font for web design. I did a screen design using several art and box texts with font Roboto Light. In AD everything looked fine. Also when exporting the screenshots to JPG or TIFF. But when i tried to export to PDF (all PDF presets) all the texts that use Roboto Light are completely broken showing messed up chars. I attached a simple AD testfile and the exported PDF/X-3 in which I reproduced the failure. bug_text-roboto-light-pdf-export_1-1.afdesign bug_text-roboto-light-pdf-export_1-1_x-3.pdf JPG export directly from AD: Screenshot PDF/X-3 opended in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC: If i check the PDF properties with Acrobat Pro DC i can see that all fonts seem to be embedded with subsets. Choosing another font (e.g. Arial, Roboto Regular, Droid Sans, ...) will export all these texts correctly. Is this an encoding / subsetting problem? I have this font installed in Windows: ROBOTO-LIGHT_1.TTF
  7. Hi, Unless I miss something, I think the text workflow could be improved. Right now I always struggle when I finished typing the text. Enter do a carrier return, Escape doesn't do anything and clicking outside the text create a new one. What are you supposed to do once you have finished to type your text ??? Also, I think it would be very helpful to add the text color into the text tool and not having to switch to the pencil to change it. Thanks :)
  8. Good morning, all. I am new to Affinity and also new to creating SVG files. I feel as though I’ve got the SVG file creation part down. Lol. This is what I need help with, and I will try to explain this by example: Lets say that I import a simple two layer SVG file into affinity. By this I mean, a transparent background (as displayed by the white and grey checkers) and a layer on top holding the vector (as displayed by the shape represented in black so that I can see the transparent background behind the shape). Let’s say that the shape is a black rectangle. Inside the rectangle I would like to write text. Then, I would like to make that text transparent so that it appears to have been cut out of the rectangle, so I can see the checkered transparent background where the words used to be, in the shape of the text. How do I do this? If you could describe it to me in simple steps and assume that I’m a total n00b, I would greatly, greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much for reading my post!
  9. I'm new to Affinity Designer and really struggling. Is there a tutorial on editing text in an eps file?

    Text on path

    I have been having issues using text on path and I am running this app on windows 10. I watched the following tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FyveNG9mPs and no go, I do not have the Layer -> Convert to path option I only see convert to curves. Are there some features in MAC not supported in Windows?
  11. Hi all, I'm going to attach a video that I made of me using CorelDraw. I created a text block with three lines on it. I then selected it and pressed control and K. This breaks the three lines into three individual objects. I then select one of those lines of text and press control and K again. This breaks it into words. That key combination again breaks a word into individual letters. At the end of the video I moved from the Pick Tool to the Shape Tool which are analogous to the Move Tool and Node Tool in Affinity Designer. Using the Shape Tool I can pick a node next to any of the letters within a line of text and move it around in order to fine tune the placing. I do a lot of punk rock style design work and it's really nice to be able to mess with the leading in this way. Is there any chance that Affinity could bring something like this? It would make a huge difference for me and I'm sure the others. Thanks I look forward to people's thoughts. Phil PS sorry for the Renegade Soundwave playing on the video. I forgot that my computer would record that. My wife pointed out that it is indeed a renegade soundwave. ScreenHunter 01.mp4
  12. Hey everyone! I'm trying to figure out how to take the text that I have on my image, and instead, cut those words out from the image to expose the background. I'm making a logo with a transparent background, and I want the text to expose the color of whatever the backdrop is at the time. I'm new to this, and so I would greatly appreciate your assistance. Thanks!
  13. So I made a new tutorial this week....based on a simple text I saw going through the airport...the pallet I used is below and attached Custom text pallete for tut.afpalette Custom_text_working_file.afdesign
  14. I just purchased Affinity Photo and can't wait to ditch my subscription to Adobe CC2018. However, I mostly work with text and am having trouble finding tutorials to answer my questions. First up: how do I create a stroke around text to make the font fatter? Thanks
  15. Hi, Loving AD. Couple of q's. 1 - Is there any method to change a text phrase across multiple artboards in AD? There are 100+ pages (boards), and I don't relish the idea of doing this manually. 2 - It would be so nice to have artboards listed in the same way layers are listed in the sidebar and showing only the board you're working on the dashboard. Is that possible? So far, I've only been able to add the boards either on top of each other or dragging side-by-side. The dashboard work area gets so crowded it's confusing and I'm constantly needing to zoom. There must be a better way as the way I'm doing it is cumbersome. Thanks in advance! graf
  16. Does Affinity Designer have an option to added bulleted / numbered lists within Frame text. I am not able to find it. Am I missing something very obvious here I use AD for Mac for designing wireframes and adding annotations is a part of the same. Thx
  17. Hi Affinity; I'm from China,It's a paid genuine user. After upgrading the latest affinity, there is a text access BUG. when I input Chinese text ,cursor position will be misplaced! Affinity Dseigner 1.61,Affinity Photo 1.6.7 Watch this video please:The_Bug_About_Chinese_Text_input_for_Affinity_Designer_1.6.1_.mp4
  18. Hi, in 'Designer' is there any way to convert text to outlines (paths)? It's a function that I've use all the time in Illustrator & I'm praying it can be done in AD. Essentially I want to be able to edit each character as a path, so I can customise them.
  19. It would be a nice addition to be able to resize text and multiple text objects by inputting point size AND have them all reduce or increase size by the transformation panel reference point. It does do this now but I have to input an overall width in the transformation panel. Just would keep things uniform in point size and not get a weird decimal point size. Thanks
  20. Couldn't find another thread about this, sorry if it's already been addressed. I am using Affinity photo for web design. I exported my file to psd, when I opened it in Photoshop CS6 on a mac, all the text had been rasterized. I have not tried it in Creative Cloud or on a PC. Is this a known "issue", or was that purposeful? I know AP is meant for photographers, but I, and others, would be using it for web design.
  21. Hi All, is there a way to view only certain text styles when choosing a font? Eg: I'm looking for a sans-serif font and would rather not have to go through every font to find what I want. I can see 'All, Recent, Used & Favorites' selections up the top but not an option for style type? Am I missing it? Thanks for the help.
  22. Hey guys, Right now, if I select a word inside a text field and I wanna use the color picker to color only that specific word, it's not possible, as the whole text field changes the color I choose with the picker. It would be great to have the possibility of changing the color of only a portion of text with the color picker. Thanks
  23. Hello, I don't understand why the leading changes between the different lines in this Text Frame (attached image). Between the first and the second line, the text "ran outside" the bounds of the Frame, and created two lines automatically. Between the second and third line, I hit the return key, creating the third line manually. If I highlight all of the text, the leading is the same (12.4pt in this case). Why is the space between the second and third line different than the space between the first and second line? Thank you!
  24. Hello. You may have read my earlier question. I think that I'm going to abandon the monogram idea for now because I'm so picky. I'd like to create a logo with text above and below the horizontal axis of the circle but I don't know how to do it in Affinity Designer. Here's an image that might help to help you understand that it is that I'm going for. I can get the text above the horizontal axis but I'm having trouble getting it below the horizontal axis. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  25. How can i make this text effect in Designer? I've had some suggestions from an Illustrator user but I don't know how to replicate what they've done. I've tried the Effects-Outer Shadow but can't get this crisp edge or the layers to "blend". "Glitter test" shows what I was able to do so far just using the Effects-Outer Shadow... help!
