  1. As most Affinity users know, when you open a file that includes fonts not installed on your system, you have the option of choosing a replacement font family & style for the missing ones. From what I can tell, the Affinity apps don't offer users much help with making the best replacement choices, nor do I expect them to. Consequently, I am curious about how other users make these choices, & if or when they decide to add fonts to replace the missing ones. For example, as mentioned in this post, I installed the Calibri font family included in the OP's .rar file so I could see if I could duplicate his issue. According to Wikipedia, this is a proprietary font family that I am not licensed to use so I deleted it from my Mac. That left me wondering what font family would be the best replacement for it. Wikipedia mentions that the Google "Crosextra font" Carlito is "metrically compatible" with Calibri, so it seems a good choice. I could download a version of Carlito with a SIL Open Font License from here if I that was important to me, which it is not. Otherwise, I could download Lato from Google fonts or just make do with some other sans-serif font I already have installed that is roughly the same. That is all well & good but the point is the research to discover the above took a fair amount of time, & it would likely be the same or longer for any other font. So ... any suggestions on how to avoid that?
