  1. The UI for changing the text styles in the main window is robust and of high quality. It would be useful if it were easier to redefine existing text styles, or create new ones based on the customised text we already have established via overrides. The current version, where you have to create new text styles manually via the text menu is a little awkward.
  2. Hi everyone , I just purchased AD and it is very fun to use ! I tried to make some 3D text in Designer and ended by making theme editable like I was used to do in After Effects. Indeed, this could be usefull when you have to modify the 3D text. You can have a look at it in the video attached or here in my twitter post: https://twitter.com/themohclassic/status/958769682009468928 I am a software engineer, I really hope we will have soon some ways to develop plugins or scripts for AP or AD ! Have fun. Moh Classic 3D-EDITABLE-TEXT.mov EDIT: here is the tutorial !
  3. I would like to have multiple images in my scientific document with text on top ('title') and some text below ('caption'). I want it to be easy to make similar images + title + captions all over the document. What is the correct way to achive this in Publisher? What I have done now is: Use the 'Square tool' to create an area (in this case red) in which the title + image + caption must fall Create a text block for the title Create an image block for the image Create a text block for the caption Make sure the text and image blocks are children of the red square Use the above red square as a dummy for the rest of my document. Is this the correct way of doing what I want?
  4. Hi, Firstly I am very happy with publisher. But there is one problem: In word I have some text in caps, but when I copy paste it in publisher all text that was in caps is formated like normal. I assume that it will come with .docx import. But it will be nice to have it with copy paste. Thanks (sorry for bad english, still learning)
  5. 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?
  6. Hi, I made by coincidence a background for my text but I dont know how. Could you tell me please? Thanks a lot!
  7. 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
  8. 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.)
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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 ...
  14. 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!
  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. 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.

  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. Latest version of Affinity Photo on Windows 10 pro, Once text is created, it cannot be edited. The only thing one can do is delete the text layer and start over So if I make a misspelling and don't notice in before I leave the later, there's nothing I can do,
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
