  1. Hi Affinity Community, This question has probably been asked before but is it possible to align text in a shape once it's been converted to text frame? I have segmented a donut and would like the text to align as if there were invisible lines pointing away from the centre of the doughnut - essentially a fan of words going around the wheel. The arrow in the attached photo is an attempt to try an illustrate the direction of said invisible lines. Thank you!
  2. Hi all, I'm a complete noob to Designer so was looking to pick your brains as to how I would go about recreating the attached logo? Any tips or ideas would be gratefully appreciated.
  3. I'm running into a lot of difficulty in setting which side of a curve the text on a path feature chooses. I've linked a video, as I feel it's probably easier to demonstrate. https://youtu.be/SluRwNK3bUk I have a curve and I'm trying to type on the inside of it to hug the ellipse above it, but no matter where I seem to click near the curve, the text wants to go on the outside. As you can see I manage to make it work with the pen tool curve above the main piece, but the curve that I want to use isn't performing in the way documented from the help page. Is there something wrong with the path that needs to be addressed, or what am I doing wrong in this instance? Feature request to the developers: A handle allowing people to easily switch the side of the curve the text is on would be helpful. Thanks ahead of time for all the input provided!
  4. Affinity Photo brings many welcome changes in how we work with text, and I'm enjoying learning the app. I found a minor issue that could be improved. While it's nice that I can enter some text then grab the text size box and have highlighted text immediately jump to show us what the new size will look like in our image, with each point size causing the text to resize itself immediately, I noticed that, while hitting the up or down arrow inside resize box changes the number up or down for us (very convenient if we want to bump size up just a little), it doesn't preview this size for us with each arrow press up or down, but only when we hit enter To recreate, enter some text in a text frame, highlight the text, and then click into the size selector inside the Text palette. We can increase or decrease the text point size with the keyboard arrow keys, but we cannot see the size in action until we hit return. It seems that since the intention of the programmers is to let us see the text easily if we use the pull-down menu with the mouse, we should also have the new size be previewed when using the arrow keys to select text size. Thanks for considering my request!
  5. I have some text that I snapped to an isometric grid. Now I want to make that text horizontal again. How do I do that? I can't seem to get it off the isometric grid even if I create a flat grid. Win 7, Aff Designer 1.8.5.703
  6. Hey all. I'm using Affinity Designer beta 1.9.0.11 - am I correct in only being able to find the Text Frame Panel by clicking the button in the Context Toolbar when I have a Path Text object selected? It seems to be a proper dockable panel, shouldn't it be in the VIEW > STUDIO menu list? I can't even locate the panel in App store version 1.86. ...It's late here, maybe I need sleep... At the very least I would think that it should be in the Context Toolbar when a Text Frame is active? The Panel I am referring to is attached. Thanks for any insight. 🙂
  7. Really need some help & i know its something simple i am not doing or have turned off. I cant seem to insert art into my text - I havent had any issues for over a year with this so im guessing i have turned something off? Your help would be greatly appreciated
  8. Hello, i have a question how to CONVERT TEXT IN to SHAPE affinity designer? In Ai is so easy but i am not sure how i can do that in Affinity designer? Here is a link you can see what i mean. I am not sure how i can do that in Affinity Designer?
  9. Help! I created a logo using mismatched font sizes for a custom upper/lower case mix. I converted the text to curves, then manipulated using stroke weight to even out the marks. I was working away on white background and client has approved (and loves) this design based on seeing jpgs. I need to reproduce it as clean vector art and now discovered I'm in a mess of trouble. When I turn the stroke to "none"/invisible, the text bloats out. I'm stuck, any pointers or tips? Many thanks. -Karen
  10. One of the features in page plus was the ability to increase or reduce the size of the text so as to fill a frame completely. Is that available in publisher?
  11. Hi! I flattened and rasterized my text box and now cannot go back in to edit my text (I'm a true novice). Is there a way to undo? I've gone back into my history but it did not save anything from before the document was flattened. I've seen other posts that I just need to undo the rasterize, but I don't know how to do that. Thanks.
  12. Hi i need your help. What is the reason that text layer getting to a pixel layer and are not changeable. I don't change the settings of the textlayer or raster this layer. But surpise, the textlayer change to a pixellayer. What i doing wrong? Thx a lot
  13. The last words and letters disappear in the left side of my text field, any one can help me with the correct set up for the text field to prevent this happening?
  14. I can’t make both the callout shape and its text visible. This is what I have done:– 1 Selected Callout Rounded Rectangle Tool. 2 In the context bar, set stroke colour and size. 3 Drew the callout and it appeared on its own layer with nodes, the layer's icon showing the shape. 4 Changed the fill to transparent. 5 Selected the Frame Text Tool (not Artistic Text Tool). 6 Clicked in the shape. The cursor appeared and the name of the layer changed to Shape Text. 7 In the context bar, set font colour and size. 8 While entering text, the shape disappeared, the layer's icon changed to that of the text tool. 9 On moving the cursor, the outline of the shape reappeared with nodes (not the shape itself). 10 On clicking out of the shape, the text remained visible, the shape remained invisible, the outline of the shape disappeared. If I make the layer invisible and then visible again, its name becomes the text I have entered. I was hoping the text AND the shape would be visible, the text within the shape. Reselecting the shape shows its outline with nodes and the context bar refers to the text not the shape. Is this a bug? Or have I missed something blindingly obvious? Or is it a bug that is selective of its victims? Or what? Please help! NB I have achieved success with a work-around: entering artistic text on one layer and the shape on another, then aligning them – I can’t find this described in the Help pages.
  15. I have "Check Spelling While Typing" selected, but words are not being underlined. If I try to execute "Check Spelling" I get an error that there's no dictionary installed for Canadian English. I'm happy to use British English, but not sure where I select this. The folder "C:\ProgramData\Affinity\Common\1.0\Dictionaries" is empty - this can't be right can it? Thanks Neel
  16. I'm having an issue that happens quite frequently when I export a document to PDF. It seems like Publisher is switching languages on me. I have everything set to default except my spell check language, which is set to English (Canada). I suspect it is font dependent, but in this case, I'm using a font that was created by the US government for US publications, and it's happened with fonts purchased from established vendors as well, more than I can recount. At the end of the day, the only fix is to change the font or create outlines of the text, which, as you can imagine, is not ideal. I get the feeling there's some typography setting in AfP that will override this, but for the life of me I can't figure it out. I've attached the afpub file and the PDF that was output. Other than the Public Sans font, found at their own page (https://public-sans.digital.gov) and FontSquirrel, I'm using Merriweather (Google fonts), which works fine. Any ideas? Thanks!

  17. We open a lot of Illustrator files in Affinity Designer. Normally this works great. Now we have an Illustrator file where the text will not load into AD. There is not a single text block loaded in the document. Not even missing fonts. When we export to PDF from Illustrator and open the PDF in Edge or Adobe Reader the text is displayed perfectly. When importing that PDF into AD everything disappears again. When I use Ghostscript to convert the AI to PDF the PDF is also displayed ok in the browser or Adobe Reader. When opening in AD I get some missing fonts. When I replace them with another font the text loaded is gibberish. It seems like the wrong encoding or something. Also when copying the text from the pdf, the same thing occurs. issue.ai illustrator-exported.pdf ghostscript-converted.pdf

  20. I have a vector spiral and I need to put text on the path, but the spiral is the wrong direction. When I flip the path and then attempt to place text on the path, the text is also now flipped. How do I place text on a flipped vector shape without the text also being flipped? EDIT: As always inevitably happens I figured it out immediately after I posted. Using the 'Node' tool I selected all the nodes, pressed 'Transform Mode', scaled it horizontally, then applied text to the path and it's flowing the proper direction.
  21. I’m bummed I keep getting on here to ask for help with seemingly easy tasks lol, however the easy things are the ones I seem to have the most trouble with. All I wanna do is subtract the rope shape from the text underneath, so it’s like a cutout of the shape from the letters. I tried converting the text to curves and it wouldn’t let me use the subtract tool after that. Untitled.afdesign
  22. In Japanese they have a style of writing down the page. (Chinese also has it) I have looked everywhere how to do it, forums and it is not possible in Affinity. ( I know I can create a hundred thin text boxes and do it that way but that does not work. I am not going to create a textbook like that. This would be a super handy function to have in an update. If selling in Japan and wanting the mass market to buy, this would be a must. Also having What they call RUBI text, would be great. This is the ability to have smaller character that tell the reader what the kanji mean just above or to the right of the character. Also a super important feature for Japan. I have attached two examples of that they look like.
  23. For those that have knowledge I have a MS Word Document that has a number of hyperlinks. When copy the text and paste it into a TEXT BOX in Publisher it strips out all the hyperlinks even though the hyperlink formatting remains? Is there anyway to bring these hyperlinks over with the text? Calvin
  24. When working inside a text box, or in text mode (not sure of the correct expression, but basically when the cursor is active inside a text box such as during text editing), what's the easiest way to select, say, the Move tool via its keyboard shortcut – without instead typing the letter 'V' into the text I'm working on? I find myself doing this over and over, sometimes without realising it and so inserting stray letters into my layout.
