  1. I am in the midst of creating a multi-page test document and I am stumped trying to find a paragraph rules option. Is such an option available in the Beta? If so, where can I find it? Otherwise I really do hope it will be included in a future update.
  2. Here are is a screen shot of what I want to figure out how to accomplish in an Affinity program. In Photoshop these are premade styles. Is there a way to build premade styles in an Affinity product?
  3. Hi, i'm working in Affinity Photo and, for the first time, the Text Tool add a white bounding box arround the characters. I've check the background text but changing it doesn't solve the problem. How can I remove this white background?
  4. Good afternoon people; I believe that, like me, everyone who makes patterns in Affinity uses the method to create Symbols > transform into Assets. At first I found it strange, but nowadays I confess that I prefer this than other software methods, especially by the easy editing of the Symbols tool. My only problem would be this: when it comes to replicating this as Assets, sometimes it's kind of annoying. I would suggest to the Affinity Group a Frame Tool option, similar to that of the Text Tool to facilitate the creation of Patterns. Something like that: the user selects his Asset as an individual object or a Frame; if the user chooses as a Frame, it selects the applied area and, as a result, the Tool replicates as many times as necessary to the appropriate size within the Frame Area. I made this horrible drawing/print to demonstrate, using the Frame Text to show something like I was thinking. Thanks guys, you're incredible.

    Return to 1.6 Text Styles?

    Is there any way to get the text styles back from Designer 1.6? I'm absolutely LOVING the 1.7 update and I'm grateful to not have to use Adobe but these 1.7 text styles are just awful. The ones from 1.6 were much better, even if there were only around 4 or 5.
  6. Text Boxes have a black line above them. Every text box creates a black line somewher above the box even with no text in the box. This also prints Version 1.71.404
  7. I was using Illustrator and using 2 fonts, Myriad and Book Antiqua. When I got through I opened AP and found a little box about the font cache being updated, with fonts being installed or removed. I looked for the fonts I had been using in Illustrator, and Myriad doesn't show up in AP (Book Antiqua does). This confuses me because I just assumed that AP (like every other program I've ever used) would just use whatever fonts I had on the pc. So I have two questions. Why is AP "updating the font cache" just because I used fonts in another program? And why would it remove one of them? Edit: Are there any videos about using text in AP? I couldn't find any in either the new videos or the legacy group. The "help" link from AP doesn't have much there either. My text needs are pretty basic but I thought it was curious that I couldn't find much of anything in the way of help. AP 1.7.0.367, Windows 8-64 Pro.
  8. I work a lot with Japanese texts and this would be my request feature number 1. When you are writing in horizontal, you can change your selected text to vertical orientation. (When I tried , that bar didn't flip from horizontal to vertical.) Like this example: (カレー). (This is wrong writing) x (This is acceptable) カ カ レ レ x ー > | That also works inside Text Editor for mac, when you go to Layout Orientation > Vertical. My other suggestion is to add something like World and iPages that is called > Phonetic Guide Text. (It's used for both Japanese and Chinese called Furigana or Ruby) Japanese Indesign has all these features for writing in Japanese too. Arigatou!
  9. I don’t know how difficult it is to make it possible to save PSD files with editable text layers instead of rasterizing them. This is the one feature that keeps me from doing my design work totally on my iPad without Photoshop. I have a client that needs the ability to edit the text before it goes to print because of data that is not available when I’m working on the job (ie product catalog numbers). So my current workflow is I do all of the design layout, drawing, photo editing on my iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil, then export as a PSD, and then add all the text layers in Photoshop on my laptop. Of course there may not be a high demand for this feature.
  10. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  11. Hey! Thanks again for the good work and the nice recent updates! One of my files does something strange, though: Every new text object (not only the text frame) has an unchangeable background color. I know that it is by design when I convert shape into a text Frame. But this time I only use text frames or artistic text. Closing the application and Opening the file again doesn't help. Although only this file behaves like this. I can even copy text frames from new documents without a background color and it works. In the file there is a transparent frame text which comes from another file. The file was originally a PDF. Maybe this is important in this case too. In the screenshot you are seeing: the first field is an artistic text with grey background the second field is a text frame with the same Problem Never set any Background - the were created like this - only in this file! I have attached the file if needed for inspection. Seems like a bug only in this file - thought it might be helpful to know. All the best, Chris test.afdesign
  12. 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.
  13. Hello there, I want to report a potential bug in the rendering of Khmer script in AP/AD. Using some Khmer fonts, AP/AD render the text incorrectly. Using other fonts, AP/AD render the text correctly. The example below is taken from a screen grab on MacOS in Affinity Photo using an offending font. This screen grab is the same font in Pages on MacOS. It renders correctly: This screen grab is a different Khmer font in Affinity Photo, which renders correctly. Lastly, here are both fonts, both the one that renders incorrectly, and another that renders correctly: http://preahkumpii.com/preahkumpii/misc/ap-khmer-issue/renders-incorrectly-in-ap.ttf http://preahkumpii.com/preahkumpii/misc/ap-khmer-issue/renders-correctly-in-ap.ttf Thanks for your help in looking into this issue.

  14. I'm very green when it comes to artistic design. I need some guidance/high-level steps/approaches. I can then go off and try to do them. I'm willing to put effort but I don't even know where to start. Right now I'm really clueless. I have Affinity Designer on my mac and I also have Affinity Photo on iPad. I'd prefer to do what I want on Designer. Here's what I want to do: I want to create a metallic/grungy text using one of the existing fonts like Garamond etc. Basically, the text would look like a nice movie poster font or a book cover font. I'm not looking to create a new font - I just want to use any existing font but make the text look awesome. I've purchased some nice high-res metallic and grunge backgrounds. So what I need to know is how do I type text, apply those textures to the text-fill, so the text looks like rusty, metallic. If I could put some cracks on the side that would be even more awesome but let me not get ahead of myself considering I'm struggling to even explain what I want, let alone having the talent to do it. I want the text to be vector so I can scale. Some examples of what I mean https://ltheme.com/words-of-lord-psd-text-effect/ http://freephotoshop.org/2011/01/grunge-layer-styles-fx/ I hope I explained it OK... Thank you!!
  15. Hello, How can I add Furigana in Japanese Kanji? Furigana or Ruby are text above japanese text to easily read kanji. This is and option that we have in Microsoft Word, Indesign, Illustrator or Simple Furigana for Mac... I also tried to COPY an text from Word and PASTE on Affinity but all words were wrong. > I could only insert with a little success from this site: http://furigana.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/index.cgi That is a Furigana Generator with HTML > Also tried to change language to japanese but couldn't find it too. >
  16. The functionality to switch between artistic and frame text would be a great addition to Designer... Illustrator's implementation of doing this (double click a specific node on a text object, or right click > convert to...) is a perfect example on how it should be handled. Here's a thread with a whole bunch of other people wanting this as well.
  17. Dear Affinity developers and users, As a professional writer/publisher I need a facility to easily import large amounts of text in text frames. And with automatic page / text frame generation dependent on the amount of text and default or imported font size. It is impractical to import all text into one frame and create pages manually, create text frames and link them all together to have text spread over the pages. Imagine a 500 plus illustrated novel. That's almost 100.000 words and numerous paragraphs that need manual di- text frame creation is availablestribution over the frames. Totally unworkable and that means that without such a facility Publisher is not an appropriate publishing solution for publishers. Of course this is different for illustrated works with little text, but a DTP solution is about publishing, not about page design alone. So how about this scenario: - text import is available - page creation is available - text frame creation is available - text frame connection is available Then, please just automate the lot in an auto page/text frame and text distribution feature allowing imports from Word, OpenOffice, plain text and Scrivener (this last one would be a nice extra). If there is some sort of scripting possible it could even be scripted. We need a proper and feasible workflow! Without this Publisher will not be workable for publishing of text books like novels, scripts, scientific work, etc. Hope to receive some response on this as I would hate to trash a nice software package days after it's release. Cheers, Anna A. Ros www.woordenstorm.nl
  18. I'd love to have an "all lowercase" setting in addition to "All Caps" and "Small Caps". It is not uncommon for designs to use only lowercase text, so it would be a handy feature. I have had to do this manually in InDesign so often I lost count years ago, only to occasionally then manually restore all the uppercase letters when someone changed their mind.
  19. I'd love it if I could easily convert from Artistic Text to Frame Text with a click of a button or shortcut. I dislike having to create a new frame text and then copy the text out of the the artistic text box and past into the frame text box.
  20. Is it possible to do drop shadows of text in Publisher? I select the text layer and fx but can only blur the text.
  21. Hello! First of all: Happy new year! I wish you all the best for 2019! I have noticed that the vertical alignment icon disappears whenever I have more than one text element selected. I still have the possibility to do it via the menu Text > Vertical Alignment but as I need it quite frequently it would be nice to have it as an icon as well. Btw: In the 1.6 version I have this useful function. Best regards, Chris
  22. I have a text object with three separate lines of text, one word on each line. I'd like to alter the opacity of each word - 100% on top, 80% on the middle line, and 60% on the bottom. However, when I try to do this, opacity changes for the entire box, not just the word I have selected... Is it possible to do what I'm attempting? Or, do I have to create three separate text objects?
  23. How do I use a text style on more than one document? I know how to create a text style but not how to make it available to other documents. Thank you Daphne
  24. Hello everyone! I've been trying to edit some PSDs sent by the company designer and I just can't edit anything. Every layer is as "Pixel" - my first thought was that I hadn't the fonts packages, but after installing nothing changed If anyone can help me with this - I couldn't find any answers yet and I don't know if is something related to settings or anything more complex - the same image opens normally in other laptops.
  25. Hello When typing text into a frame text tool whenever i want to drop down to the next line (or press enter) the gap is around a centimeter. I want to get it much closer to the above line but if i try moving the paragraph leading it only makes the gap bigger, not smaller. I can get around the problem by using artistc text but can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong with the frame text tool please? I have attached an image, A is as close as i can get it by adjusting the leading B is what i want but it means i have to use Artistic text Cheers Pete
