  1. I started a thread in feedback on font organization but now honestly this issue has turned into a bug or a glitch and wanted to address it here. My original request/complaint was that Affinity Publisher (or any Affinity product) could handle font organization better, grouping the widths together as a condensed/normal/extended format. Adobe does it this way and it works well. Now however, I sent feedback to a font foundry because I thought they had mislabeled SemiExpanded to be wider that Expanded. They told me it was the case with my software not their font. I looked again and realized they were correct and want to share a screen grab from Affinity and another from Photoshop to compare. Please see how the weights and widths organization is messy but the optical illusions of the widths. It seems the word length is squeezing down the sizes as well. Since Affinity Publisher is a master layout assembly tool especially where typography plays a critical role, and where many designers use thousands of fonts and many superfamilies that are extremely difficult to navigate through in the current font organization scheme, I ask for the fonts to be displayed as they are with Adobe. This would help tremendously. I love Affinity products but this is issue a thing to deal with.
  2. This is the second time I am writing about terrible support for Khmer fonts in the Affinity suite. The first time I wrote, I provided sample fonts and images to show how the fonts are supposed to be rendered. AD and AP still do not have it corrected. I have up to this point been a fanboy for Affinity products, telling lots of people about Affinity. Yet the over the course of many and major updates, this problem, which is a show-stopper for my using Affinity, has not been corrected. And I know others in this forum have requested this problem be fixed as well. As a Khmer speaker, I am still willing to provide any support or files needed to facilitate fixing these bugs. Here is my previous topic that I posted in the forum. It was nicely marked (pre-1.7), and yet 1.7 has not fixed the issue. Thanks. Adam EDIT: I am working in MacOS Mojave.
  3. In an AffPub doc that I created I used Goudy Old Syle throughout. When my colleague opens it on his computer (which has Goudy Old Style) the entire doc comes up with a different font (Ariel or Helvetica?). However, AffPub font does not show the replaced font name, nor is there any message in AffPub before it changes the doc font that I sent him but ?Goudy. This is very disturbing and must have an explanation although I can find nothing on the forum. My AffPub doc should maintain the same font and formatting when opened by a different user on a different computer (both Macs).
  4. It would help type designers a lot to have a folder that not only automatically activates the containing fonts, but also replaces the typefaces in the documents when replacing the font file in that specific folder. Like Adobe has it. The process of testing fonts in publisher is very frustrating at the moment. There seems to also be a strange font cache behavior that just doesn't update fonts unless restarting the software.
  5. When attempting to import Agfa Rotis and use it, only the semisans in the family is usable. The import appears to work, but I can’t actually select it in Text Studio. If i then load the font locally using Anyfonts, I can use it in other programs. I’m new to fonts. Please help.
  6. When I am trying to open a PDF in Photo/Designer with embedded fonts that are not localy installed, Designer/Photo suggests to replace them with a similar installed font. Whe I am openeing the same PDF with Adobe Reader the embedded font are recognized und correctly displayed. Is there any solution on my problem? Thanks George

    Texture/ FX fonts

    To whom might know.. hell o I’m looking for a broadway font texture. I’m using Design on my iPad.. I’ve been able to find some textures but not many.. and yes I’m work on a no budget plan.. sorry. Thanks for any help, Dan
  8. I've noticed that all the Affinity applications have trouble with the Contextual Alternates feature (on by default). The 'error' occurs when the entered text has an initial capital. Specifically when the applications auto capitalise the first word. All OK in Adobe applications etc.
  9. Congratulations to Serif and the Publisher team on release! In very early use, I'm noticing that Publisher 1.7.1 is not seeing all the fonts installed on my Mac. I don't notice a particular pattern, though I haven't yet looked hard. In particular, "Book Antiqua" is MIA, though it is verifiably active on my Mac. (2017 MBPro, High Sierra.) Thank you for the release.
  10. Hi Affinity, While I love the way OpenType features are handled much better than in Adobe, I really cannot navigate font superfamilies. If you have any family that has different weight groups then navigating through the font list is very difficult. Can you guys please fix the font organization. It really slows down my work otherwise. I am showing screenshots for one particular font family. I have licensed countless superfamilies and I really don't like working with them in Affinity products for this reason.
  11. Hey! when trying to open a PSD file which contains fonts not on my system - i don't get any message notifying me about this issue. I know that PDF import let me know when a font is missing but why this is not working for PSD files?

    IKEA (free) Sofa Font

    Just released ... https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/planners/design-your-own-sofa-pube4af8d71?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=soffasans&utm_content=organic_uk_tweet&utm_term=awareness
  13. This is more of a request for users of the Affinity suite to badger Extensis for them to start to think about producing an auto activation plugin for Suitcase for the fonts used in an existing document. I tweeted Extensis about this a couple of days ago and they said it would be something they would think about if there was enough interest in it, obviously they already do this for the CC suite, but as my company are slowly switching over to Affinity (already using Publisher extensively... working on the other two programs getting implemented as well), this would be a very welcome feature indeed. With over 2 million users of Affinity, it's certainly something that should be taken seriously at this point, so let's make them take notice!
  14. Hi, Feeling a bit daft and its driving me nuts, When I create a document in design using letters with styles (wood effect, etc) in affinity its sharp, as soon as I import it (pdf) its pixelated when I enlarge it. This only happens when I use styles not when I use curves or flat letters. I've changed rgb settings, document size, everything. What am I doing wrong please. Thanks Just noticed, this happens with any effect on anything (curves, fonts with 3D etc)
  15. Hi, I'm trying to load a PDF from a notation software. But 1. Preview reads it 100% 2. Designer looses all ICONS 3. Graphic has icons but text is no GOOD. Dorico-Quick-Reference-Card.pdf
  16. Hello, dear folks at SERIF. Hello, dear DTP and Artwork Compatriots. One of the slight niggles – besides the lack of GLOBAL LAYERS (VERY important) – I am missing the direct implementation of Monotype's FontExplorer Po. I KNOW it's an early beta, but it would be lovely to know if you guys already "speak" with Monotype to get a PlugIn sorted as FontExplorer is one of the most used FMS in the Designer World. Thanks and regards, Holger BASICS & DETAILS LTD
  17. As soon as I call the NIK plugins, the fonts are updated and Affinity Photo 1.7 needs to be quit without any way to save the former work. Any ideas?
  18. Hi, Please add custom folder to Affinity Photo, from where it recursively load fonts (.ttf and .otf). We setup our windows with sccm and put all fonts to Adobe fonts folder (for InCopy or InDesign), but since affinity can't use font from there, we have to use additional fontmanager or install same fonts to C:\windows.
  19. Since Adobe has went to subscription payment on all thei software like Microsoft. I have been looking for compatible replacements. My main use for Photoshop is not editing and enhancing photos but to create headlines and save as pngs for use in other programs. I also use actions to create mock ups that create CD covers, magazine cover looks etc. I also would like to be able to use and modify the headline files I currently have which are in PSD for,at. How much of this will Affinity do? I am also looking for an Indesign replacement. I have never liked renting software. I current use CS6 on my Macintosh and don't want to be forced to CC one day.

  20. Hi Guys as any new forum members tends to be I am somewhat overwhelmed by the forum content to date, so forgive me is this question has been asked before. I also use Photoshop CS6 and have a veritable smorgasbord of resources such as brushes, fonts, vector graphics, shapes swatches etc and was wondering which if any can be imported into Affinity Designer and Photo.e.g. should I / can I use TTF fonts or OTF fonts. I have never used Adobe Illustrator so not totally au fait with all the terminology. Any advice welcome
  21. I am hoping there will be an easy-to-use feature on the final Affinity Publisher to upload fonts as I am finding the available fonts quite restrictive on the current Beta. (It would be even better if the feature would be added to the next Beta update... but I expect that is wishful thinking haha)
  22. Hello, I am using a medium italic Orkney font at the beginning of a section and regular Orkney for the rest. The document has existed from before the 1.7.0.376 update. Now, although it looks fine visually (some italic and the rest regular) Publisher claims they are both medium italic. Furthermore, when I export to PDF, the regular comes out fine but the words that really are italic come out as gibberish. For example, the words "Front endsheet" come out as "Htqpv gpf uj ggv"! With another font, Lobster Two, an extra character appeared in the PDF. They used to print out fine. Is this a bug or am I failing to do something? Robin
  23. Hi guys! I've some problem with font cache in both softwares on Windows. My font list don't update at all. I try to close AD and AP then restart, but nothing happens. No one of new fonts is updated. In Photoshop, Word and other SW everything is fine. Please, help me! G.
  24. Hi, I have lots of fonts and it slows down the startup of Affinity Photo and designer, because every time it is loading all fonts. Is there anything I can do to speedup things besides deleting fonts? Regards & Thanks, David
  25. Hey! I am wondering whether it is possible to place a PDF document without having the fonts replaced automatically. My question is now: Is (or will there be) there an option to convert all text to curves when placing a PDF document in AP? Would save a lot of time. Now I have to convert such PDFs before in another (open source) vector program to preserve its appearance. Affinity Designer doesn't provide this option either. Best regards, Chris
