  1. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  2. Hey there, I deleted Adobe Illustrator from my pc and started using Affinity Designer. I'm already getting used to it, but one questions for now remains: How do I hatch fonts/letters with a certain pattern (see attached picture as example, Letter "O" pattern) Thank you in advance.
  3. 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.
  4. Hyphenation works (german language), but the hyphens are not displayed or printed, when I use PS Type 1 fonts (TheSans). With TrueType or OpenType all works fine.
  5. Hello, Previously I bought Serif Page Plus X9. This a great program as long as you use latin alphabet based font. However, in my work I need to use CTL fonts, especially Khmer (Cambodian) Unicode Fonts and it is not to possible to write any words with Page Plus X9. Now I try Affinity Publisher and it is not possible to make any documents with CTL Unicode Fonts too. Is there any possibility to fix this problem in another version of the program?
  6. Hallo, Coming from Adobe creative suite after many years, especially photoshop and indesign I was so happy to stumble upon Affinity. Really excited by these guys at Serif. Anyway, I have a large indesign project which I need to re-create completely in Affinity publisher, and a minor part was copying some hebrew text (NewPeninimMT) and Adobe Caslon Pro font into Affinity. I did not expect them to display and expected the hebrew to give me a whole load of boring squares as is usual in other pieces of software and in indesign when I first tried it many years ago. But it displayed perfectly. The font box, however, did insert a question mark before the font name. The font list in affinity did not have either of these fonts and neither does my microsoft system, there are none stored at this time. Strange that it displayed at all.
  7. 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.
  8. I'm not sure if this is a bug, a feature that might need improving, or me missing how this works. I usually check my documents to make sure no stray fonts managed to get in, perhaps as an invisible character. I'm not clear as to what should happen when I select a font that I don't want and then click 'Locate'. It seems to take me to the page, but I was expecting the text with the font in question to become highlighted. I said, it seems to take me…, but as I click on other fonts in the list, the pages don't always change. Since the text does not seem to be getting highlighted, I'm not sure if this feature is working correctly. I just did a little experimenting. I changed some text to a different font not used in the document. Locate found the usage and highlighted it, however, I had Text Rulers on and the highlighted text was under the ruler so it was obscured. Other fonts in the Font Manager list that are stray do not get located. While experimenting, another font appeared in the list. Selecting that one and clicking the locate button also did not show anything. Where would these odd fonts be? On second thought, perhaps there is a bug in here somewhere. Separate Locate Next and Locate Previous might be handy. I notice that Undo and Redo can go backward and forward, but if you make another edit, Undo would be problematic. I don't know if a Locate All feature could work in some way. Then a 'Change All Instances', or 'Change Selected' would be a time saver for a very long document. Would a locate only in current text box and linked text boxes option be useful? How about, 'Exclude Placed Graphics', since AD files could be searched too and one would not want to change the font in a logo or other important graphic.

    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:
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. Chinese input error : When the Chinese is input, the subtitle will cause the garbled, and the Chinese can not input normally.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. Hello, Are you planning on adding functionality for the new OpenType variable font technology in Designer, Photo and Publisher? Best, Bauke
  24. 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...

    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.
