  1. 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.
  2. I updated Mac font library to include a new font. Switching back to Publisher, the app had a popup messaging about "updating the font library". I was unable to click anywhere on the app, or cancel said update. It remained like this for several minutes before I forced quit the app. Sorry Id isn't take a screenshot. Didn't think of doing this until after I restarted the program.
  3. with certain fonts, the Glyph Browser in Affinity Designer doesn't display anytime, but stays empty (e.g. with "Double Digits", "European Pi"). It seems that the Glyph browser ha a problem with symbol fonts.
  4. In other DTP applications I've used, sometimes there are fonts that cannot be embedded for whatever reason. The usual reason is because they have copyright/license restrictions, but there are others that don't come to mind at the moment. The other DTP software outlines - converts to vectors - these fonts. I was wondering what Publisher did with fonts like these. Does it outline the text or do something else? I've had a look around the Help, various dialogs, and this forum and can't find anything related to embedding/outlining fonts. Also, on a related note, is there a way to force Publisher to outline either everything in a particular font, or a specific piece of text, or the contents of a specific text frame? I ask this question as I sometimes want to have certain text outlined so that non-human readers can't read the text - e.g. phone numbers, email addresses, etc. In other software I've used a specific font for these items and then told the software to outline everything that uses these fonts. I could manually convert certain items to curves but that's a bit awkward, especially for editing purposes. (Also, sometimes I find that a certain browser/PDF-reader has trouble with a certain fonts when they are embedded so I use outlining for this reason too.)

    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?
  6. Hello, buddies! I have quite a hard time managing and changing fonts in both AP and AD, but one of the features I miss the most is the possibility to filter all my fonts to their specific families: serif, slab serif, sans, script, decorative, etc. Is it possible to be done? If not, will it be implemented? Also, is there any way of changing font size clicking 'n' dragging in the icon, like Photoshop? The only solution I've found so far to ease the size modification (as defined numbers aren't really a big help) is assigning the commands to increase and decrease to shortcuts, like Ctrl+Alt+>. All suggestions are welcome! Thanks.
  7. 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?
  8. Chinese input error : When the Chinese is input, the subtitle will cause the garbled, and the Chinese can not input normally.
  9. Placed (not opened) a PDF on an empty page. Worked well, but Publisher replaced a font (CopperBlack, which is not installed on my system) by Lucida Grande without warning. If you need the original PDF to analyze, please PM.
  10. Finally we got it what we've been waiting for.. Thank you Affinity. On the first start I found some visually issues. Like the UI font's are too pixelated in windows 10. I've used both AP and AD on mac, but downloaded this Publisher on Windows as trial. please check the screenshot I attached, the left is Photoshop and on the right Publisher. I didn't check any performance or functional thing. this was the first thing I found apparently.

    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:
  12. 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.
  13. It has been happening since a day that whenever I am trying to change the fonts and I go to the dropdown menu in text options Affinity Photo freezes...on Mac High Sierra. The beachball goes on and on and I have to force quite and restart the app but even after several attempts it hangs as soon as I touch the fonts selection dropdown either in the floating window or the the top shelf. This has made it unusable. Has anybody else experienced this? Is there a solution to this bug?
  14. For some fonts problems arise in Designer in the font style dropdown. As you can see in the images below Windows shows the several types of the Bahnschrift-font the correct way, but in Designer there's only a list full of 'Regular's for this font. The font is included in the attachments. Bahnschrift Bold Condensed.otf
  15. When writing text using Thai characters, some characters are not rendering at their correct location. That would be those characters that go above or below the previous character. I guess it would be a stretch to ask to include some different thai fonts, but if the default thai font provided by the system would render correctly in Affinity, that would still be very, very helpful for many scenarios. See example, writing "สวัสดี" in Affinity, doesn't put the characters "going above" properly: One would expect it to render like this: I hope this might be possible to fix for a coming update. And of course, it would be rocking if some specific Thai fonts might be included in the future. :) But anyway, if getting the default font to render Thai characters positioned correctly, that would be awesome for now.
  16. 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
  17. Hello, Are you planning on adding functionality for the new OpenType variable font technology in Designer, Photo and Publisher? Best, Bauke
  18. Hello. Is there an option in Photo and/or Designer to convert text to curves during opening of PDF file instead of finding substitute font? I have this kind of option in Canvas X but I cannot find similar feature in Affinity... maybe I am just blind...
  19. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.

    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.
  21. 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
  22. 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. Thomas

    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.
  24. 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
  25. 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.
