  1. I’m loving everything Affinity is putting together. Also will there be ‪an addition of type controls (leading / tracking / kerning )with the hot keys( option key + arrow keys) for ipad. Option plus left and right controlling the tracking and kerning. Option plus up-and-down controlling the leading like adobe hot key. ‬once learned this hot key in the adobe its been tough on ipad trying to keep ip my type placement speed with out it.

  3. Hello! Does anyone know if it's possible to remove all added tightening/loosening of horizontal space manually applied between letters of words? I'd like to go back to a "clean," unaltered version of the original text. Thank you!
  4. Hi. I would like to see all of the Affinity products have optical kerning similar to what Adobe Illustrator has. Thanks. P.S. I'm going through the process of switching to Affinity from Adobe. CM
  5. Hi all. I searched the Designer help for "kerning" and got zero hits. So that's the first major problem. I selected a line of text, and examined the Character properties panel. In the kerning drop-down, everything except "Auto" and 0 was greyed out. I also noticed the "Character" and "Paragraph" buttons in the toolbar. Clicking on them didn't appear to change the type of text I was defining. So why are they there? In other vector programs, selecting text with the node-selection tool lets you adjust kerning by dragging a control point on each character. Not in Designer. So is this functionality just missing? Thanks for any insight.
  6. For me publishing is all about typography and setting beautiful text, whether that's artistic display type or vast amounts of body text. Here are some things I'd like to see Publisher get at some point (but maybe it's just me so I'm interested in people's comments): 1. Font info: In the Font selector show as much information about each font as practical (ideally let the user configure which attributes are shown), and provide a "get info" function to display all available details. Attributes of interest would include licensing flags (embeddable, etc.) existence of Kerning pairs, OpenType features of interest, western language support, CJKV support, etc. 2. Basic Font management: I'd like to be able to organize fonts into groups (potentially having one font in multiple groups). I'd like to be able to attach some notes text to a font that would be viewable as a tooltip say, or an attribute in the font info described above. 3. Optical Kerning support: I've always been a fan of Optical Kerning in InDesign as it eliminates a significant problem when exploring for interesting and special purpose fonts, and the ability to leverage the insane number of free fonts (of wildly varying quantity of course) that exist today, some/many/most/virtually all of which do not include kerning pairs. I suspect many font designers take the attitude that "kerning is a pain in the butt and people can just turn on optical kerning in InDesign so really there's no problem if you don't do the work to create them". In playing with Publisher I've been disappointed to find out just how many fonts I like will be problematic in Publisher due to lack of kerning support. The Affinity response so far is: "We provide kerning based on tables in the font file. As these are pretty well supported by fonts, doing anything more isn't a priority at the moment." ( https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/65653-tooltip-fix-and-optical-margin-align/&tab=comments#comment-342380 ) which is disappointing. I hope they'll consider it in the future.
  7. I have been using Designer to edit a pdf document exported from an Apple DTP program. The text in question imported OK as paragraph text. (Some text had imported as curves.) I would like to increase the spacing between the '7.00' and the 'pm' in the time. I select Artistic Text, I place the cursor between the '0' and the 'p', then select the Character panel. In the Kerning entry, I click the down-arrow and all the kerning options are set to zero. I have also tried selecting the adjacent characters, with the same result. John
  8. I create a kerned text name (single line or double line) in Affinity Designer (AD), either via Art Text or Frame Text, and then use AD's very handy "New From Clipboard" in order to export an SVG. These problems, however, occur. (I do take a snap of the placement of the original text so that I can duplicate the SVG placement.) 1. The kerning in the original name appears to be ignored, i.e., the letters have none of the original kerning. How can I preserve the original kerning in the SVG. 2. Although I keep careful track of the x/y and w/h numbers in the Transform box of the original (non-SVG) text, when I apply these exact same numbers in placing the SVG text after importing it back into the document. However, the text appears just below the original text in my doc (x is correct but not y). My top-right choice in the Transform box (of the nine possible choices) has not changed. I have tried both "Place" and dragging the SVG, but the wrong placement remains.Is this normal? How can I be assured that the numbers of the original text, if applied to the SVG, will bring the SVG i precisely to the correct y position? Any thorough discussion of the above would be much appreciated.
  9. Hi there, I would like to ask if anyone else has the same behaviour as me when typing text in the 1.6.1 of AD. Assume that I create a body text style with a specific kerning and tracking number (negative values). I type the text, all good (upper text paragraph in the image). However, when I revisit the paragraph and add something (Affinity Designer), the kerning and tracking in this latest addition is lost (upper text paragraph in the image). I need to select all the text and select the paragraph style again to correct it (lower text paragraph in the image). You see the problem for the guide lines I have inserted. Best regards, A.
  10. Hi,how do I adjust the letter kerning in Photo? I'm editing a PDF and the letters looked a bit cramped.
  11. I think this is a bug. Latest Affinity Designer from Apple Store on latest MacOS. Font is Segoe Print from Microsoft. The last closing bracket is too close to the previous text. See pic included. I think this is incorrect kerning? Perhaps the font definition itself is faulty?

    Kerning not working

    I'm trying to adjust kerning and I'm not able to change any value. I can't type any value and default ones appear in gray with the exception of 0% (symbol % appears as 0/00)
  13. Hi ! Is it possible to kern whole row or chapter, instead of one character? kr Nikolai Ylirotu Finland
  14. When I open a file created with Photoshop in .psd format I see random issues with fonts. The auto kerning parameter appears to be read incorrectly. As I used the navigator to zoom in and out the font would be drawn incorrectly and with random spacing. Once I clicked on the font with the font tool and re-selected "auto" kerning it started to behave. It's like it was uninitialized after I read it - behaved a bit odd when I tried to set it. Once set, it snapped to what it was supposed to be. I have Affinity Photo v 1.5.2 on Mac 10.10.5. Here's what I see when I zoom in and out. I am not resizing the image. I am just using the navigator to zoom the current display.
  15. The SVG export in AD of a text term (both frame and artistic) does not appear to recognize AD tracking correctly.The SVG made from AD puts the proper tracking between the first and second character of a single word, but then bunches all of the next letters together as if they had no tracking, but the last letter appears in its proper place at the very end with a large space before it, i.e., as if all of the other letters had been properly tracked. I have tried using kerning rather than tracking in creating the same single term (again in both frame and artistic text), but all metric options are greyed (not available). In this respect, I have to return to Illustrator which works better, although the tracking/kerning in the SVG is slightly less than in the original. BTW, I'm still trying to figure out how kerning vs tracking works in AD since it appears to be different than I understand from my publishing experience. Are there any posts or help articles that could illuminate my ignorance?
  16. First I want to say that you guys are literally the only ones who have made the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro useful. Seriously, it's great execution on having appropriate adjustments and functions on the bar. Most app devs treat the bar like an after-thought and, if implemented appropriately (which it almost never is), it's quite useful. Something I'd love to see implemented is a more robust Touch Bar for the character menu. Currently there are only the three bold, italic, and underline options, all of which often aren't applicable for most fonts. I can imagine having things like tracking, leading, and font size dials available, perhaps with a few options like all-caps or small-caps. And while I wouldn't want the actual font-picker menu on the touch bar (way too much swiping), having a picker for font variations within a family would certainly be valuable (slightly less swiping). I can even imagine seeing ligature or Open-Type variants pop up when highlighting specific characters.
  17. Hi there, When you import a PDF with image+text into AP, some part of the texts show some kerning issues. Original: With issue: I'm on MacBook Pro 10.10.4 with AP 1.3.4. Thank you!
  18. Hello, there seems to be an issue with typography with type on curved paths. It is as if the program thinks the type takes up more space than it does. Selecting all the text gives an apparent se;ection much longer than the text actually is. Moving the cursor through the text with the arrow keys does not aliogn with the actual letters. Adjusting kerning between letters gives strange results, moving the letters to where the cursor seems to think they are. Difficult to explain. I have attached three screenshots that show (1) selection of a line of curved text (the top text is on a different path and different layer, only the bottom text is on the layer and path I'm working on); (2) cursor poitioned after the first letter (should be between the M and the E); (3) effect of a small increase of kerning (one click of the up arrow next to kern parameter in the character dialogue) between the M and the E. Thanks. Dean
  19. I have a block of text with kerning of 7% applied to the first letter pair, but not the rest of the block. I copy the block as a fast way to duplicate the font, color etc. for a new block of text. Select all to replace with new text. When you start typing, ALL of the letter pairs in the new text are now kerned 7%. It seems to me that while tracking should be maintained, kerning should reset to 0 in this situation.
  20. 1) place art text in your document 2) select art text using the move tool 3) apply generous kerning (e.g. 50%) using the ,character' button on tool bar 4) center text Result: text is off center (shifted to the left) due to kerning space after last letter of the text Workaround: not found, because kerning cannot be applied to single letters when using art text
  21. Hi quick Q about kerning. I don't seem to be able to adjust individual words or characters within a text frame. Seems I can only adjust the entire contents of a text frame? Is this correct? S

    Auto Kerning

    To me it seems that the "Auto" checkbox in the character palette (Cmt+T) doesn't work. When I set the kerning manually to let's say 50 % the white space in my text grows. Fine. But when I then enable "Auto" again, nothing happens. Instead I would expect the selected text to reset to normal (0 %) kerning.
  23. I try to convert some work from Adobe Illustrator. I made some logo design in Adobe Illustrator. As Illustrator format basically contains an embedded PDF it's pretty easy to see a preview just using QuickView in Mac OS. The format was imported without issues but there might be a general issue correctly respect the kerning information from the font. There are some huge gaps between specific symbol groups mostly related to the uppercase "A" character. At least this is the place where it's most obvious that there is something wrong. I did two PNG exports of the original file rendered by Affinity and Illustrator. I think it's pretty obvious what's wrong. Is better font support on the roadmap or is that some specific issue with some font files? Thanks for support and clarification!
  24. Hello Affinity, first I want to say, that I am waiting for a Adobe competitor for a long time now. I am very glad you started the Affinity project and I am also looking forward to the publishing tool. This morning I bought a license for the app and I already did some testing. I have to say. I am a professional type designer and I work a lot with curves in Fontlab and Glyphs. The outline tools you get in Illustrator are very poor, I think. Due to those problems I would say, that I can achieve a good outline in the font apps in half the time. Still the font apps could be even better. Maybe I cannot expect you to really implement what I would like to have because you might say it is not important for most of the users. But still I want to share with you. Maybe it is even better to speak on the phone about that. I am working with curves in 2 different ways. With open and with closed outlines. In Glyphes and Fontlab I can easily copy and paste parts of a form. It is also very simple to open and close a form. The reason, why I copy and past a section is to maintain that part when I want to scale it. In other cases it is better to have separate closed forms and work on them separately and remove the overlap later. For typefaces one thing is very important. The so called extrem points. I have uploaded a picture to show you what I mean. A very helpful feature would be a way to create those extremes automatically. Fontlab and Glyphs have that feature. But in Glyhes the extremes are just added and the other wrong points stay there and you have to delete them. Deleting points in Illustrator means that the curve changes drastically. Glyphs and Fontlab try to keep the curve as good as possible. I would love an option that creates extremes and deletes the unnecessary points. Extremes are very important for interpolating and not only in type tools. Oh, Kerning is not supported in Affinity Designer, is it? Is there an Open Type panel? I think that should be fine for now. I would love to discuss that stuff with you. Hubert
  25. Please add a feature to manual kern, like using [opt]+[arrow] in ai for example.
