  1. When importing SVG files into Affinity Designer, the text size becomes drastically reduced. Please see the following images comparing the same file when opened in Chrome vs affinity designer. This bug seems to affect all SVG files created by the software ChemDraw, so I can provide additional files if needed. By default, ChemDraw should export images with a font size of 10. I am using the latest version of the software as installed by the Microsoft Store. aniline.svg
  2. I recently decided to try Affinity Photo after Photoshop CS6 stopped working in macOS Catalina. However, the application's UI size on normal large monitors (2560x1440) is a literal pain to look at because the fonts are blurry and tiny. No other UI I have on my mac is like this. The screenshots below show the difference between Photoshop CS6 and Sketch app, which have UIs that work well, and Affinity Photo, which has a UI that's blurry and hurts my eyes to look at. Is there any way to adjust Affinity Photo's UI to either make the fonts bigger or at least smooth them out so they're not grainy/blurry? PS CS6 Preference window: Sketch Preference window: Affinity Photo Preference window: PS CS6 app UI: Sketch app UI: Affinity Photo app UI (notice how grainy/blurry "Snap to edges" and "All layers" are):
  3. Hey there! When switching between Affinity Designer on iPad and macOS, the font sizes change, and it's quite ugly! I'm using the Damascus font. Screenshots attached. Am I doing something wrong here?
  4. I expect that changing the font size in a paragraph style definition would change all paragraphs tagged with that style throughout the document. That does not appear to be the case! Publisher Mac This is so basic that I guess it is me that just doesn't know which button to push. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks.
  5. I'm not sure if this is a feature on Publisher or not, but I was looking for a way to find and replace fonts in an entire document. Publisher is working great for pulling in PDFs and allowing you to edit the content. Better than anything I have used before. Currently I am able to edit manually, page by page, to change the fonts. I'm working with multiple 20+ page PDFs that need font styles and text sizes to change. InDesign has a feature called 'Find Font' that allows you to see all the fonts in the entire document and change the style/family and size. I wanted to see if this is a feature in Publisher that I can't find or if it will be implemented in the future. Even if this isn't part of Publisher it's definitely outshining InDesign right now!
  6. Hi, Please forgive my rather naive question but I'm a little confused. As a rule of thumb I understood 16px is a good font size for readable text on a website. I'm just examining the great Grade UI Kit and see that some of the header text is 4.8pt ( see attached screenshot ). I've just read that 1pt is equal to 1/72" so at 72dpi 1pt should equal 1px. Obviously if I follow my rule of thumb here and use 16pt ( which should equal 16px? ) the text is huge. What am I missing? I've just referred back to some of my PSD designs and 16pt looks fine. Many thanks in advance if anyone can clarify this for me.
  7. I'm not entirely certain if this has already been covered in another thread, but I'm sorely missing the ability to automatically have text resized to fit the frame. This feature does exist in the PagePlus program, so I'm hopeful it's just yet to be implemented? As a side note, the closest reference I have been able to find to this type of feature in the Affinity forums is resizing the frame to the text, which was in an old feature request for the Designer beta. Needless to say, this is rather the opposite of what I would like to happen. Thanks for any feedback you can provide!
  8. 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
  9. I cannot seem to increase the font size in the macro library it is much too small for me to see. Do you have any suggestions> Also in the preferences, you can select font size as default or large but large is not very large and is still hard to see. Thank you
  10. Can you please integrate bigger and smaller buttons in text options? Your predetermined text sizes always are either way too small or way too big. Please consider. Having to enter in the field then return to see it apply, THEN do it again is a waste of time. Thanks.
  11. When you click inside the stroke width textbox, and press the up/down arrow keys, it increases/decreases by one point. The same should happen after clicking on the font size textbox.
  12. I edit under Windows 10 on a 40 inch Phillips 4K monitor, which needs a little care as the default font size is very small. But you can tell Windows about this and it compensates in normal operation. Applications can pick up on this setting and Affinity Photo does this well in the main window. But when I do something like a File/Save, it does not, using the basic very small font sizing. It's not the end of the world but I do have to squint (I'm pretty short sighted). Hopefully not too difficult a fix.
  13. Hello, I am experiencing an issue with AD on Windows 10 where when I focus Font Size text field on the top bar or on the floating panel and press the down or up keys on the keyboard, it will decrease/increase the font size as expected, but if I press the down or up key again it will move the selected text object down/up instead of decreasing/increasing the font size again. It also happens on all other fields on the floating Character/Font panel. Is this the expected behavior? I would expect it to keep focus so I can play around with font size/kerning/line-height/etc until I am satisfied. Thanks, Fernando
  14. I defined a paragraph style GTD filler 1 and formatted some text boxes. I wanted to change the font size in the EDIT TEXT STYLE dialog box. On the FONT page, in the drop down FONT SIZE the entry KEINE Ă„NDERUNG // NO CHANGE was automatically selected. When hovering another size from the list, my text is corectly previewed with the hovered size in background of the dialogue box. But when I actually select a font size to change it, the preview switches back to the former size. When I open the dialog box again, the entry for the font size automatically switched back to KEINE Ă„NDERUNG // NO CHANGE. I am not able to control the font size in a paragraph style :-( NOTE: My language setting from installing the app was DEFAULT which is German. When I changed the system language in the preferences dialog to English to report the bug, I can not reconstruct the issue. I changed it back to German and the bug is back. Thanks for your support!
  15. I am new to Affinity and am having problems changing the font in Preferences for the User Interface. Could you please tell me how to make the user interface fonts and or icons larger on a MacBook Pro.
  16. I primarily do web design, so I work with font sizes in pixels, not points. If I try to set a text object to "64 px", it becomes "64 pt". My current workaround is to set the document to 72dpi so that 1px = 1pt, which is fine for now, since I'm working on a mockup I won't need to export. Is there a better way to deal with this, though?
  17. Is this unique to my system? I'm not familiar with fonts in "px". I've seen it before, somewhere, but can't remember ever using it, and have no reference to it that makes any sense to me. Anyone else seeing this, and know what it means:
  18. Hi, I'm experiencing a serious issue with Affinity Designer. Everything worked fine and suddenly, the font sizes when creating a new text with the Art Text Tool give me completely incoherent font sizes. I was in 72 dpi, but it switched to 144 dpi by itself. If I press "OK" in Document Setup, it doubles the dpi every time. I tried to set the DPI to 36, it did changed to 72 dpi when I pressed OK, but font sizes of newly created fonts are still wrong. Note that the font sizes of previously created texts are correct. This issue occurs with Retina documents. I changed settings to set the size of the document to @2x and unchecked "Retina", but it didn't fix the issue. Please help. I've work to get done and I'm blocked by this issue.
  19. I have a document with e.g. 70 DPI, some text inside has e.g. 12 pt font and I when change the DPI of the document to anything else, let's say 300, then all fonts of the text shrink to 1.8 pt or something like that. I can't even copy the text to another document and then back. They still have broken size. I think font size should be preserved with a change of a document DPI because I need to export the same document with different DPIs (e.g. for print 300, for web 70). The only workaround I found is to copy all texts to Apple Pages, change document DPI and them copy & paste texts back into Affinity Design.
