  1. Hi there! I’m very satisfied with my experience with Affinity products on iPad, yet there is one major issue bothers me and keep me hesitated when thinking to use Photo or Designer, it’s that both of them doesn’t provide a decent support for Arabic language, the letters is reversed and not connected to each other. As an Arab user, I need the language to be fixed for me to get rid of all other apps I use to write Arabic texts and transform it to PNG then to Affinity Photo and Designer, I can’t even recommend Affinity apps for my college designers because of this exact issue! I kept waiting for one of the updates to fix this issue, yet there is nothing, no change, please fix the Arabic language so Arab users can finally ditch other apps and relay completely on Affinity products. Thank you in advance for creating such an incredible software experience, it’s really a great pleasure to have it!

  3. As someone who has used Photoshop extensively and had been complaining about its clunkiness, Affinity Photo (And Designer no less) was a welcomed breath of fresh air. I have been a vocal supporter of the Adobe To Affinity migration ever since I started using product. It runs like butter. It feels like made by designers as advertised. However, one can't help but feel an overwhelming disappointment, if not a bit of humiliation when talking about Affinity to other designers when they pop the question "does it support Right To Left Languages." I live in the UAE; a majority of the designers and artists that work here are Indians, many of whom barely speak a scrab of Arabic, let alone know how to read the language, and yet their biggest concern is being able to go RTL because the market demands it and its kind of awkward when speaking to a client why a simple copy/paste procedure doesn't always work for them When I expanded my work to FNB menu designs, that's when it hit me hard the most. The amount of time spent to implement these insane work arounds just to get arabic written properly on an AF file made me see their point. Any designer worth his salt will know that his main job is to communicate a message; if I'm indeed speaking to designers involved in developing this product, I'll begin my extending my utmost respect to a fine product you guys have going. But I can't help but ask: if we're here to communicate messages through visuals, how can something as crucial as Right-To-Left language support be placed so far down the priority list?! Arabs amount to almost 386 million and the language stands in the top 5 most spoken in the world. This goes without mentioning Hebrew/Cyrillic/Azeri... I mean no disrespect, but I just needed to convey my frustration. I won't pretend to understand how hard development is.
  4. Hi, Didi Affinity Designer support RTL & Arabic languages? tnx
  5. If you search "rtl support" or "support arabic text" you'll find that it's a very old and frequently wished feature. So please add rtl support to AD or at least add it to your road map as it is a very basic feature. Affinity designer is called to be a UI design tool. But what is the use of it when one can not type and work with text an typography? Currently you can't work with persian, hebrew, arabic, urdu ... and all the rtl languages in AD and it's not even mentioned in the introduction of the app in the Appstore or in the website!
  6. Lacking the ability to use right-to-left paragraphs for type, renders this wonderful software almost useless to a quite a large chunk or prospect users. Is it really so costly to develop this ability? After all, language is what we use to communicate—what other purpose does this software have if not to communicate words and visual messages? So far it's the only issue that prevents me from purchasing the app...
  7. I am currently attempting to move from Adobe programs to Affinity Designer and Photo, since they are more affordable and in most cases do the job easier and/or faster. I have noticed that I cannot write any RTL (right-to-left language) text. As I am working in the Middle East, this is essential for my job and unfortunately means I still have to make use of Adobe software until this is supported.
  8. Dear Affinity, Tried your program and love it.. alsmot bought it if not for inability to support Middle Eastern Language, Withlacking support for RTL Language, Its very hard for Affinity to grow popularity in this region and needs. Regards,
  9. Hello, I've got many Clients from Arabic Countries and both AD & AP do not support the Arabic language, that detached and flipped ! Please Affinity resolve this sooner. peace
  10. Hello, I just tried the Trial, it makes me sad that such a good App has no RTL support at all and it is not even in the Roadmap... So I guess no RTL until 2017... This feature is really simple, letting us only type in RTL (no need for RTL UI or anything) I think it can be done in a few days at most. Going back to Photoshop with sadness until you have RTL support, I really liked your app for being fast and clean, Whish your team the best and success.
  11. Hello, I was very happy to know that affinity is available in window (even if it is just beta for now). However, as an Arabic person I found that Affinity Designer doesn't support RTL or Arabic text. I was very happy to share the news about the beta version of windows, but most of Arab Designers will need RTL support. Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is huge and having RTL support in your product will be fascinating and many will abandon Adobe products for sure because of the lower price with high technology Affinity support. We just need support for adding text in Arabic not the interface in Arabic. I will just use tool for now till you support RTL http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Home-Education/Arabic-Text-Reverser.shtml If you can add such tool in the program it self till you support RTL, this will be a very great thing Thank you
  12. I have some design assignments that will use mixed text with English and languages that use Right-to-Left scripts. Unless I'm mistaken, I can't switch directions within a Text Frame. This necessitates either layering in text in post (using another program), or laboriously breaking the text into multiple sections and aligning the words manually. Having the ability to switch directions midstream would be very helpful!
  13. Hi! Really nice product! Are you going to support RTL languages as well? Alexander
