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.
Hi; Spanish translation issue: The second option in the filters menu is called 'afilar'; inside it, there's an option called 'máscara de desenfoque' that should be called the opposite: 'máscara de enfoque'. In fact, I was crazy looking for the 'enfoque' filter until I found it buried into an 'afilar' section (don't know why to call this menu that way) and mispelled as 'desenfoque'. Regards; Val
Hi! I am a designer who turns to learn and use Affinity Collection! Instead I am using Adobe. And I like Affinity more but somehow I can not type in Vietnamese Affinity Design but this is easy on Ai. Thanks Advance to test mode and advice help me! P / S: I really expect Affinity to have an application that supports the layout of the magazine, book, ebook like Indesign !!!!
The language dropdown of my Character panel only shows English, Portuguese and Spanish. Is there a way to add more languages to it? For me, this is not about spelling, but language features that are built into OpenType fonts. (I’m a type designer and I use Affinity Designer to make the promotional images for my fonts, btw.) For example, this is some of the OpenType code that is present in the locl feature of my fonts. These substitutions only happen when the language of the text is set to Dutch, Catalan and Romanian, respectively. If the glyph doesn’t have a Unicode assigned (which is the case of iacute_j.loclNLD), there is no way for me to input it into AD. And while we’re here, any chance on getting a Glyphs panel?
