    Font List Locks Designer

    I just updated Affinity Designer to v1.6.1 in the 'App Store'. I'm using macOS 10.13.3. Once I attempt to change/choose fonts by clicking the drop down list, Affinity Designer locks up. I've even disabled all User fonts (just in case). I've even uninstalled/reinstalled the app.
  2. Would it be possible to outline a font which is not available on your system but embedded in the PDF. Having the option of being able to outline if you want regardless. Kind Regards
  3. Hi, since the Windows 10 autumn update, there is a new font installed, which I was really lopnging for, as it is a free replacement for our corporate font: Bahnschrift (based on DIN). Unfortunately, in Affinity Designer, I can only set it to "Regular". When I click the Selection, it shows me 5 different font faces, all named "Regular", and no matter which I select, I only get regular. Can you help me with this? I have AD-Version 1.5.3.69. Greetzzz.

    Different Font Category

    There is a bug that is displayed in the font category of the affinity designer, which is quite different from the one in the font book. I've attached some screen shots that can identify the error, so I'd like to see if it could be resolved in the next version.
  5. I have issues including freezing/crashing while trying to select font for any text box. The only reason I can suggest except the software bug is that this might happen due to Korean fonts installed in my computer... Are there anybody experiencing the same issue with me?
  6. In Affinity Designer Hi, How do you select a part of some fonts to change the color? For example I have the word "WATER" and want half of it horizontally at the bottom white and at the top blue. Thanks! David
  7. Hello There! I work with a graphic designer from Dubai on designing numerous graphic designs that are related to marketing. The program i was recommending to him was Affinity because of its simplicity, support and the one time purchase fee. My designer wanted to incorporate Arabic letters in the design and he downloaded a font off of the web in the form of OTF. For those of you that aren't familiar with the Arabic alphabet that the writing starts from right to left instead of the opposite. After trial and error and spending hours trying to figure out if the software supports the alphabet we came out with a conclusion: Affinity designer doesn't support Arabic/Farsi/Urdu alphabets. However, the program supports symbolic calligraphy which means the letters were treated like symbols rather than an actual font. I have a special request from the developers to update their software and make it compatible with the Arabic/Farsi/Urdu languages just like in Adobe Illustrator. I was and still (sorta) an Adobe user, but i much rather use Affinity because of it's functionality and one time purchase fee instead of the monthly subscription trap that Adobe offers. Thank you so much and i hope my voice reaches to the developers because i am representing millions and millions of Arabic speaking people that comes from Arabic speaking countries that would like to have an alternative to Adobe software with the same great power house.
  8. Hello. Sorry to bother, but I have a problem with Affinity Designer for Windows (right now I don't have a Mac at my hand, so cannot replicate the problem on there). Whenever I try to use some TTF fonts in a document and try to export it to PDF, these texts gets outlined/converted to curves. And I don't know, why. What am I doing wrong? These fonts are from the Softmaker Megafonts XXL fonts library and they did work in the past without problems in other graphical application, so I don't understand why they doesn't work in Affinity Designer. Here are my tryed settings (but whatever I do, it is the same, the texts get converted to curves): I tryed to make a test file and uploaded some of these fonts. Here is the test document: test.afdesign Here is the PDF, try to select both text with the selection cursor in Adobe Reader or similar PDF reading apps: test.pdf Here are two fonts: fonts.zip Does someone have any idea? Thanks in advance.
  9. Whenever I choose this font: "Gotham" and select a different weight, the font list duplicate (see attached image) I've tried to delete and reinstall this font many time, but still, the problem occurs.
  10. How do you change the User Interface font size in Affinity Photo (1.5.0.45) on Windows? According to the help file, the option should be in Edit > Preferences > User Interface > Font UI Size, but it appears to be missing?
  11. Hi, Do you plan to make Affinity Designer any better while working with fonts? (So much vital for pro users) What about integration with Font Managers out there (Linotype's Font Explorer, Suitcase and so...) I am installing fonts with Font Explorer X Pro. Those fonts do not show in Affinity D (no plugin) Manual font activation in Affinity D is so much annoying. Thanks

    Typeface design (WIP)

    Hello. I used AD to draw and slice single glyphs for my new comic book font... regular is done, others (italic, bold, bold ilalic) are still in progress. ... and here is the sampler:
  13. Hi! Firstly, I want to thank you for your products. You do amazing work guys and I really enjoy using them! I believe there are more important features to be implemented, but I couldn't find this one here, so let's list it: There is a "new" font format called OpenType-SVG that stores vector or bitmap informations to create colored fonts. Would be great to push the limit :) PS: Links explaining OpenType-SVG/Color Fonts: http://www.colorfonts.wtf/ https://creativemarket.com/blog/color-fonts?utm_source=ownedsocial&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=blogposts&utm_content=inspiration

  15. Hi all- New here! I'm trying to figure out how to write words in my logos (I know, the typing tool). What I mean is how do people write the words of a company name- do you usually download custom fonts from online websites, and if not, how does one make their own font? Maybe @ostrysharpcould help- I really loved your work in this feed.

    changing fonts crashes

    Hi, Every time i change font Affinity freezes forcing me to force quit. Both from the top or from the "character" panel. Doing something wrong?
  17. I just purchased Affinity Photo and can't wait to ditch my subscription to Adobe CC2018. However, I mostly work with text and am having trouble finding tutorials to answer my questions. First up: how do I create a stroke around text to make the font fatter? Thanks

    Crash on create/edit Text Style

    On High Sierra AD crashes at every attempt to edit or create any text style. I'm using 1.6.1, and have reverted the OS to the original fonts that came with it. Reinstalled AD to no avail. Styles.txt
  19. I am new to affinity and am struggling. How do i view font information in PSDs. A graphic designer is sending me PSDS via my client, i think he creates them in photoshop, the client has assured me font information is contained in the PSDS. Font size, font family, h1, h2 info, stuff like that. I cannot see how to view this information and am becoming really frustrated at how difficult it is to access this basic information. Yes, i googled it, and i found this:(it embeded, it is above this message) It said to "With the file closed in Affinity, can you check under Preferences>General and make sure you have 'Import PSD as Text rather than bitmap' ticked and then reopen the file. You should then be able to select the text and edit it." so i have done that and someone else says " If you use the move tool (arrowhead symbol) and click on the text itself you'll see the font and text size displayed." but still for the life of me cannot see the font family, size and h1 h2 etc. I have attached a screenshot, this is me having clicked the text and in the right handside panel it just says "no style" Please someone help me, it is driving me crazy right now. Thanks a lot in advance!
  20. There's a basic feature in Office series or Adobe series programms. When choose font from control bar, it'll display the options according to the current system language. For example, when system language is Chinese, it'll display like this. But in both affinity designer and photo, all fonts display together and I can only tell them by their english names from a very long list, that's very unfriendly.
  21. Hi All, is there a way to view only certain text styles when choosing a font? Eg: I'm looking for a sans-serif font and would rather not have to go through every font to find what I want. I can see 'All, Recent, Used & Favorites' selections up the top but not an option for style type? Am I missing it? Thanks for the help.
  22. I'm running into this issue as well. I've not installed any other fonts. I'm running 10.13.3 and as soon as I click the drop down, the program freezes and shows an not responsive. I saw there were fonts not downloaded in the font book, so I downloaded all of the fonts to check to make sure that wasn't an issue, did not fix it. Any chance this is getting worked on? Without being able to change fonts, this program is dead in the water for me.
  23. I just discovered, to my chagrin, that PagePlus X9 doesn't support ligatures, those special characters which, in Open Type fonts, "stand in" for certain letter combinations, usually those involving 'f'. See the png below for an example. Now, I know that only old-school has-beens like me care about such things, and I also know that there's nothing to be done about (legacy) PagePlus. But InDesign does it with elan, and it would behoove the Affinity team to at least consider doing it in Publisher. It's a nice touch that veritably screams professionalism.
  24. I have an AD file that has some text from a font (Lavenderia) that has overlapping glyphs. They are displayed and rendered correctly in AD, but upon export (with or without rasterization enabled), the stroke around both the behind and in front character is visible (i.e. the rear glyph's stroke is not obscured by the front glyph's stroke). in AD: Resulting PDF:
  25. I export a psd file in Affinity Designer but the fonts change to pixel layer and didn't edit.
