  1. Here's a screenshot: http://cl.ly/image/2d1W133o2U0a/Image%202015-07-14%20at%2011.32.05%20AM.png Steps to repeat: 1. Open a document in AP. 2. File > Export > GIF 3. Click the "More" button. 4. >> Note the word "Palettised" is almost unreadable. It seems to be unreadable because of (1) bad kerning and (2) pixel discoloration. Space out the letters more and make it a continuous shade of gray to fix the problem. (And no, I don't have a Retina display to see if that is more readable. It might, but as you can see in my screen shot, it is quite bad on regular screens.)
  2. Hi everyone, I'm new on Affinity Designer and I got a problem concerning the path type. ( I've already checked the instructions in the helped menu but that doesn't work for me ). I hope you'll understand me because I work on the french version so that the traduction of the tools may not be exact. Well here's my problem: First I create the curve that will define the curve of my text, then I use the text box tool and I click on the curve I've juste created in order to insert a text that follows the curve. The text insertion zone is in the rectangular zone that defines the curve but the text doesn't follow the curve !! The photo attached shows where my text insertion zone is and how my text appears when I try the make a path type Thank you so much if someone here can help me, I've tried everything and I'd be very grateful ! :) Antonin
  3. I am in the very early days of using Designer and cannot fathom how I can set preferences permanently. In Illustrator you set it under Illustrator/Preferences but I cannot see a similar option under Affinity Designer/Prefereneces. Every document I will work with will need text as point size (not mm) so how do I permanently set it? The same goes with the document dimensions - I want every document I create to be in mm so how do I do that? Thanks in advance.
  4. I have some design assignments that will use mixed text with English and languages that use Right-to-Left scripts. Unless I'm mistaken, I can't switch directions within a Text Frame. This necessitates either layering in text in post (using another program), or laboriously breaking the text into multiple sections and aligning the words manually. Having the ability to switch directions midstream would be very helpful!
  5. I am brand spanking new to vectors and I purchased a pre-designed vector logo hoping I could figure out how to change the text that says "YourCompany" but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to accomplish this simple text. Help??? Here is a screenshot of the image I'm working with. logosample.tiff
  6. There seems to be a bug in the latest version of Beta that I am running. The issue is that "spell check highlights" the squiggly red lines bleed through from layers that are behind the top most (opaque) layer! See attached picture!
  7. In pages there is a shortcut to copy the Font/ Size etc of a section and past it to another one! (Word does this with a sort of "brush" icon, maybe there also is a shortcut) And googleDrive has also implemented this in his online Editor. I just really find this feature incredibly helpful and I´m sure you would think so too! This feature would suite Designer very well but would be also useful in the Photo Application. It would be also absolutely perfect in the coming Publisher Application which I already can't wait to use B) Peace out (y)
  8. I use Indesign quite heavily for book and magazine layout I produce for a range of publishers, so would like to think I know my short cuts and my way around around Indesign. but this does make me struggle formatting lots of copy when jumping back to Affinity (example left aligning I would typically hit cmd L which is not so in Affinity Designer). So Affinity is done the Apple way, which is not bad if you start fresh, but I have a sneaky feeling this will put off switches handy in shortcuts from Indesign and Illustrator to the upcoming Affinity Publisher and Affinity Designer if all the short cuts need re-learning from the off start. So my question is this....Is it possible to have Adobe shortcuts as an toggled option in preferences?
  9. Why does a standard return press give me a double line leading? Should be just a single line, equivalent to leading set. Or are there settings that I'm not seeing?
  10. I haven't been able to figure out how to do vertical text. I'd like to see a single click option that when hit it would do your text either vertically or horizontally, much like PS. Or if there is a way, please explain how. Thank you. Russ

  12. please let me center my text inside a text box horizontally. See screenshots. 1. Screenshot: The problem 2. Screenshot: Manual, very imprecise solution (adjusting the base line in the character menu) 3. Screenshot: What I want to have (just to make things clear) 4. Screenshot: Where this setting has to be in the user interface 5. Screenshot: Just to make things very clear: How Pages handles this. This is a very important feature, every typographer needs. If the textbox is aligned properly using guide lines, the text should be in the center of my textbox, or whereever I want it. It is impossible to align my text properly centered on a horizontal guide line.
  13. I have voiced my concern about stroke on text with the inside of characters and numbers not producing the uniform contour of the interiors, they are still "cut" into triangles when used at certain stroke widths. (see attached B letter). I can obviously go thicker or thinner to make this disappear but I think it just needs to be fixed. Please.
  14. When importing text boxes from an .ai file, the text comes in as Artistic (stretch the boundary box and the letters change size rather than rearranging themselves to fit as many words as possible within the box's width). Is there a way to convert that type of text into ...and I don't know the term... "regular" text?
  15. Hi, I am new (and impressed so far!). My first question is how can I write text on a curve. The promotional video on the home page shows it (at 0:27, writing "Authentic Quality Apparel Wear"). But i cannot figure out how and am reading it is roadmap feature. Could someone let me know the deal? Thanks!!
  16. Here is a brand new lesson for Affinity Photo. In this tutorial we look at placing text/logo in perspective using Affinity Photo. We look at using 3 examples. https://youtu.be/jv3szSbyu80 Go be creative and show us your results. Allan
  17. When I import a PDF document, if the text fields have fonts changing in-between words, immediately after the font change it appears a question mark character.
  18. Hello.. I wantg to make a circle with text but I can't find this option. Could you help me? Thank you

  20. In all other color modes in the color panel, when a value textbox is highlighted (as in, with a light gray glow around the textbox), as soon as I start typing, the first keystroke turns on "edit mode" (textbox background turns white) for that textbox, removes the current value and replaces it with whatever I'm typing. Intuitive. Except it doesn't work that way in RGB Hex mode. Instead, it will behave in different ways based on my observations: Sometimes, it will turn on "edit mode", but not remove the current value, and place the text of the typed keystroke in between the two characters of the two-digit value. (I've observed this when the textbox has a current value of "00", but not always replicable.) Other times, it will turn on "edit mode", accept the typed keystroke, pad it with a "0" (so if I typed an "A", it will show a "0A"), but for some reason, place the cursor before the typed keystroke (like so: "0|A").

    Bug in typesetting

    Latest version (1.1.2) does not type endash and emdash properly on a German keyboard. The endash does not appear entirely; when typing an emdash, a normal hyphen appears.
  22. Hi there I am editing an AI file and need to replace existing text with my text. I cannot edit the text. The instructions for illustrator state you are required to. "Right click and Ungroup your chosen illustration then select the Isolate Selected Group option." When I view the layers they are not grouped together but simply individual letters. I have attached the file, can you edit any of the text? Would GREATLY appreciate any assistance, I am very new at this. Meat-Cut-Illustrations.ai
  23. Hello community, I'm new to affinity designer and never really used a vector based software before. Now I want to great a logo, but I'm having an issue with the font. Here is my current status: http://cl.ly/image/2V071f00172u The current outline of the "Robin" lettering is in the same color (red) as the background. But this was just a workaround, because when I change the background color now, the outline is still in this red shape. How can I make a transparent outline? I tried to punch the font with the current outline out of the circles with the "Substract" button, but I can't use this function an text and a shape. Thanks for you help! Greetings, Robin
  24. Hey Matt, first off, love it the new text on a path feature, you guys have done yourselves proud. But I was playing with it just now and I did my regular thing wrote something on one hemisphere of an ellipse and the repositioned the start handle (By eye) so my text was level. This has always felt like a bit of unneccesary faff in illustrator and I was wondering if you guys had some secret wizardry planned so we could automatically do this on creation, or just have a button in the context bar for it? I guess you'd have to redo it every time you changed the tracking or scale of the text. It's late so I haven't put much thought into it but it would be killer. I think it would only really apply to ellipses but it could be used on diamond shapes too I suppose.
  25. It'd be great to have a more efficient font selector, currently the drop down is a bit clumsy. A search based font selector would be awesome. I'm surprised at how much it slows me down
