  1. I want to make text that looks like it has been written with a gold. Can some one please tell me if and how I can achieve this? I've attached some examples.
  2. Font Manager seems to visually change the document, but I can't find a way to make a permanent change. (Interesting that the substitution is saved and applied to all documents.) I thought it was an issue with an imported PDF but the attached screenshot is of a native afpub. (Mac OS 10.14.5, Publisher 1.7.1)
  3. Hi Affinity, While I love the way OpenType features are handled much better than in Adobe, I really cannot navigate font superfamilies. If you have any family that has different weight groups then navigating through the font list is very difficult. Can you guys please fix the font organization. It really slows down my work otherwise. I am showing screenshots for one particular font family. I have licensed countless superfamilies and I really don't like working with them in Affinity products for this reason.
  4. Is it possible to import a PDF to Affinity Publisher and convert text to curves ? So if there are fonts included in the PDF not available on my PC they won't be substituted to other fonts but remain looking the same as they were but as uneditable curves ? Thanks
  5. Hi everyone! Will be support for variable fonts in the near future?
  6. 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
  7. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.

    IKEA (free) Sofa Font

  9. This is more of a request for users of the Affinity suite to badger Extensis for them to start to think about producing an auto activation plugin for Suitcase for the fonts used in an existing document. I tweeted Extensis about this a couple of days ago and they said it would be something they would think about if there was enough interest in it, obviously they already do this for the CC suite, but as my company are slowly switching over to Affinity (already using Publisher extensively... working on the other two programs getting implemented as well), this would be a very welcome feature indeed. With over 2 million users of Affinity, it's certainly something that should be taken seriously at this point, so let's make them take notice!
  10. Hi there, as I'm likely keen on collecting fonts, I somewhat regularly look for awesome ones and stumbled over Color Fonts (https://www.colorfonts.wtf/) On the page, there is Affinity Designer listed as supporting svg-Color Fonts - which must be svg packed within otf, if I understood that right -, but anywhere else including this forums, I only found the whole Affinity Suite does not support this yet, but also found some users, that would appreciate having it supported. So am I, and as I didn't find a posting about, I opened this one - excuse me if this wasn't right. I'm using Photo and Publisher at the moment, but would also buy Designer, just to get Color Font-Support I don't really make a lot of publications, but everytime I do, having color fonts supported would be fantastic. Thanks, and so long, sistra
  11. Tell me please, will Affinity support variable fonts in the near future? I am a developer of similar fonts. Thanks!
  12. Hiya, One of my fonts has just decided to stop working. I have used it loads previously but I opened a file I had been working on and even thought it is on the list and I can select it what comes out is not the font. It then also has a '?' in front of the font name. Any help is much appreciated.
  13. A big problem for me is the fact, that I cannot place PDFs in APub with embedded fonts that are not installed on my computer. Well, I can place them but they don’t look like they should, because the missing fonts were replaced! In a magazine I have to place a minimum of 70 ads that I get as PDFs from multiple customers. I only have to place them onto my pages within the editorial content. And they have to be ‚as they are‘ when it comes to printing. It’s not possible to tell all the customers: "Please give me all the fonts you have used"! So please make it possible to use PDFs the common way: Put a PDF on a layout as it is, whether the fonts used in it are installed or not. Kindest regards Udo
  14. Hey there everyone so I have recently rediscovered my love for vectors and text in my art and was wanting to download some free fonts to try out a few things however I’ve run into a little snag. While free fonts are plentiful I can’t import them into affinity due to either my own incompetence of not knowing how to unzip files on a iPad so I can import the fonts or that I don’t know where to look for files that are not in a zip format as I only have a iPad to work with and have no access to a computer to unzip files there and transfer to my iPad. If anyone has any idea on overcoming this please tell me and also please share any awesome fonts zipped or unzipped for those who pass through. Thank you for your time and have a nice day.
  15. Buenos días, con la última actualización de Designer cuando selecciono el texto en la barra de controladores no me aparece el peso correcto de la letra. No sé si es normal o hay alguna falla. Veo que me ocurre lo mismo con Photo. Gracias por la respuesta.
  16. 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.
  17. After upgrading to Affinity Photo 1.7 I can now no longer find where or how to set the stroke width of font elements. I create a font and write a text and i have found I can use the alternative colour on the colour palette to make a stroke colour on the font, but I can not find any way of editing the width of this stroke. This previously used to be an option from the Font sub menu bar. Where has it gone?
  18. I have just tried to create a document identical to one I use in PagePlus. In some ways it was easier, and in others not so - but I think that is largely down to the fact that I have used PP since V1 and I am used to that. Transferring a pdf file was a nightmare. In the end I created text files in the publisher page identical to those in PP and then copied and pasted the contents over. A much easier task. BUT I have some fonts where there is no italic ttf file available, and PP used to create the italic on the fly. It seems Publisher cannot / won't do that. Searching the Web cannot find an italic version. Is there any way I can create the italic font into Publisher Any ideas would be welcome CRG
  19. Hi there, I have encountered a strange bug when working with PDF exports. To be more precise Overpass as a font. It gets exported as bunch of symbols instead of letters. Tested. Not a bug in my file, nor software (friend tested it as well) Link to download Overpass: https://overpassfont.org What it was supposed to look like: What I got in the PDF: My export settings:
  20. Being a font nerd, it would be so great, and incredibly useful if all the Affinity apps for iPad were able to seamlessly import free Google Fonts. The free app Fontasy is able to do this already with various apps, including LumaFusion and ProCreate. Sadly Affinity apps are not on the list for saving fonts to. Please allow this functionality in AffinityPhoto and AffinityDesigner (and by extension the AffinityPublisher for iPad which will be available one day.) Thank you and keep the awesome flowing!
  21. Hey! I am wondering whether it is possible to place a PDF document without having the fonts replaced automatically. My question is now: Is (or will there be) there an option to convert all text to curves when placing a PDF document in AP? Would save a lot of time. Now I have to convert such PDFs before in another (open source) vector program to preserve its appearance. Affinity Designer doesn't provide this option either. Best regards, Chris
  22. Hey! At the moment I am doing a brochure design and sometimes I have to change font styles. The issue is that once I have set some text to another font style (doesn't matter which style) it remains set in the menu bar. That means it's showing "Bold" (or whatever was last) when it's already "Regular". To apply the style "Bold" I have to assign a temporary style first before I am finally able to make it "Bold". It seems to be "stuck" with the last font style in the list and Happens with all the fonts. I am using the latest Win 10 Pro Edition and the .337 AP version. I hope you do get what my problem is :-/ All the best, Chris
  23. I recently downloaded a new font from Creative Market ( https://creativemarket.com/dedemulyadi/908638-Heritage-Font-Combinations ) but I am unsure of how to add it to Affinity Designer on my mac. I am new to Affinity and I am completely lost. Can anyone help or give any suggestions on importing new fonts? I love using Creative Market so I am hoping the programs are compatible.
  24. Is there a way to select certain fonts as favorites? At the moment, every time I select a font and write a word in it and change the tool afterwards, it snaps back to Arial, and I have to look for the font again I have just written in. How can I stop this behavior and have the artistic text tool remember the last used font - and how can I select favorite fonts where I have a shortlist of 4 - 6 fonts I regularly use, so I don't have to browse through all those comic sans funny symbols chalk scriptures and impact stuff to find the fonts I want to use. thanks!
  25. I have this very strange issue with text on a path. when trying to change the font, it doesn't update the font initially typed wtih. Meaning, if i type in ARIAL, then try and change it to TIMES, the TIMES font is shown over top of the ARIAL font. I have included two screen shots. Had to take picture...screen cap wouldn't work to show the error. I have tried this selected the font, or even selecting the object and changing the font..same out come. Gary
