  1. How do you set text to run around a photograph
  2. 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.
  3. 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

    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
  6. 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! :)
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. I really hope we get a feature that allows multiselection of many objects including text objects where the primary goal is to make any live text and convert it to curves. Essentially leaving nontext objects alone. This would be for the sake of simplicity to convert many text objects and convert them all to curves in one step. AI allows for this under their Type menu. It ignores vector objects and only converts the type objects.
  11. How do you edit or write over previous text in a template or other PSD files?
  12. For instance, the below text:- (literally:- are you going this year, brother ?) is not rendered properly in both Designer and Photo. The area that I highlighted contains tone mark which is supposed to be a bit higher than the upper-level characters, However, they are placed at the same level, and clash with each other. This suggested that the OpenType GPOS table is not applied.

    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
  14. 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
  15. 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 !
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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 :)
  21. 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!
  22. 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?
  24. 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
  25. 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!
