  1. In much of Asia, it is usual to have bits of Latin-script text in a block of Thai, Chinese, or whatever. Right now I'm working on a restaurant menu where one field requires both Thai and Latin script. The next version will need Chinese, too. To make this look good I need a different font for each script. In Microsoft Word I can define a style that uses an entirely different font for each script. From the posts I've seen, in Affinity Publisher I would need to override a paragraph style with a manually applied character style for two of the three scripts. This is a pain, and since I'd have to do it over again whenever my merge data changes, I can't really use Publisher for this job. This problem must be hurting Affinity sales all over Asia, and I would think that applying a font according to a range of Unicode code points would not be a big programming challenge.
  2. It was recently suggested that I create s single post showing all of the free resources we have made available via https://affinity.graphics as some were never announced here and some folks still don't know about Affinity.Graphics for finding resources. We just updated the site a bit and released 2 more free resources there, so stop by and check things out. You can find DSV's offerings directly at our Affinity.Graphics User Page. Attached are promo images of everything we've released to date. Enjoy!

  3. So, I fell in love with Affinity after about an hour of playing with it. I bought it and started bringing my favorite assets over from Photoshop and Illustrator, including some styles I have been using for years on my web projects. I thought perhaps others could use them too, so here they are with a bonus set of sticker styles. Enjoy if they're of interest to you. UPDATE: New version 2.0! This time the gradients and strokes are tool editable. No more trips to the Effects Panel. This gives better and easier control of the styles. BONUS: By request, 4 atmosphere styles. Included is the AD file with all styles applied for you to play with. Will likely only open in the latest beta. Sorry. BONUS: Dream Metals styles! Aluminum, Gold, and Copper. Find these and more at https://dscape-llc.com/affinity
  4. Hello I have a weird issue with the font caviar dreams. For whatever the reason in the system at home it show all the variants of the font, regular, italic, bold, bold italic, but I went to the office today only to find out that there with the same fonts and the fonts working on others apps, the affinity designer can't see italic and bold of that font for some reason. I don't know if this is present in another font I just use this for a work and I get the error when I open the file that the caviar dreams bold is missing. I checked in other applications and the font manager I use and the font is there. I tried to install in system just in case and still it doesn't work... I'm confused, everything between my home and office are at sync, windows, affinity versions, etc. Is there an option that I miss and probably force this font out? Thank you!
  5. I am copying text from a word processor into a Publisher document. I want to apply my main paragraph style to this text, which includes optical alignment. Problem: Sometimes the text I am copying includes local formatting, e.g., italicized text. Applying my style and clearing character formatting will unitalicize the italics. Apply Style and Preserve Character Formatting will keep the italics, but then it will not apply optical alignment. Is there a way to do this, short of manually reapplying italics?
  6. I am trying to update a 100 page publisher file and have updated the current body style to change the font size. This works fine for new text that I apply the style to, but hasn't updated existing text based on the body style which is still in the original size. Am I missing something obvious? Is there a preference somewhere to update all items with this style to the new style definition? Cheers Gareth
  7. Hi everyone these are some styles i created for use on individual letters , hope there good enough for everyone to find a use case for them. this is my first go at creating styles it is a 148.59MB DOWNLOAD. S.L_LETTER_STYLES.afstyles
  8. Time approaches quickly so here are some Xmas texture styles in case anybody has a need for such things (and as always you may freely use those styles to your likes): Personally I sometimes use such textures for backgrounds on greeting cards and stuff like that here ... Here are the compressed AD style files: xmas1.afstyles.zip xmas2.afstyles.zip Have a nice Xmas time!
  9. Would it be useful if you could import and export text styles? Single or multiple text styles together.
  10. On my wishlist: Object Styles that behave the same as - consistent with - Text Styles. All Apps. Meaning: They update; are amendable (currently not) They flow through to all objects where the Style has been applied In short: the same as Text Styles, but for Objects. Yes, I'm aware you might be thinking "so when Symbols vs Styles?". Styles are concerned with fills, strokes and effects. Symbols are mini artworks. …therein is the answer. Indeed you could have an Object Style applied to several Symbols, in theory, couldn't you? Scenario: Brand colour combinations comes to mind - a plc I worked for had six different colours, as well as two core colours in their brand manual. The six could be used in any combination or tint. No doubt a designer's choice of fill-stroke colour combination would be questioned by marketing, or the manager signing-off. Everyone has an opinion on colour. The value of being able to update a style once and let it flow through to multiple symbols and objects, in say, a 56 page company report nearing print deadline (as is always the way) - then change it back again when they decide they like the designers choice after all ....should be obvious. Hope that helps you grasp the "why". (Saves a designer having to do an all-nighter... again). !! Consistency: Currently we have two features called Styles in Publisher that behave in very different ways? Why? What justifies that? Maintain this consistency across all the Affinity suite too please. I've not checked Styles in all the apps, but the ideal is that all Styles, where ever they appear in whichever app they're in, behave the same and perform the same function - across desktop and iPad too. Thank you. ----------------- Really good start to these apps btw, really shaping up well - am a total fan - lovin them on the iPad especially. Appreciate they are in early versions, so still much to do. More things on my wishlist as they occur. Hope this helps.
  11. This is a feature/update I would love to see come to life at some point as it would allow for a lot more detailed styles to be used created and would offer an advantage over adobe. A newspaper effect would also be a sick and unique addition to it.

  13. Bonjour à tous, Est-il possible d'appliquer un style (dream métal - doré) à un pinceau ? Pour avoir un pinceau couleur or ? J'arrive à appliquer le style dream metal doré à un aplat ou à un contour simple (trait continu de base en faible épaisseur) mais je n'arrive pas à le combiner à un pinceau (type acrylique). Est-ce possible ? Un grand merci d'avance à toute la communauté !

  16. I have the same question tumber8 asked about styles. How do I get the textures/images I had in styles from PS CS3 to show in Affinity Photo? I opened the doc “Styles CS3,54a.psd” in Affinity Photo and some of the effects were there but the textures /images were gone. The attachment includes the jpg and psd opened in Affinity Photo. I also included the image of a style from Claudia Phoenyx. The top one has the effects checked and in the bottom one the effects are unchecked but the texture is still there. In Claudia’s style where is the texture kept? I have hundreds of styles I created in CS3 and I would love to share them but without the textures/images there is not much there. My 13 year old Mac that had PS CS3 on it is no longer available so I can’t use PS to convert them to afstyles, Any suggestions? Thanks, JulieO
  17. With these simple hatching styles you can hatch your vector objects in Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo. Affinity Publisher Beta seems not working yet (previews looks strange on my machine). DOWNLOAD: https://mensch-mesch.com/download/affinity-designer-schraffuren-hatchings/ With the red styles you can easily change the color of the hatching while using an adjusment layer recolor. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  18. I'm having a problem; I think I mentioned it before; I'm just hoping that there's been an update or something since it seems like I'm missing something. I have white text on a black page that overflows (correct term?) into black text on a white page. When text is part of the same paragraph I can't seem to alter it without altering the entire paragraph. Ideally there'd be a way of having the text automatically change style when it becomes a part of that text frame. But even if that's not possible; can I not change the colour of the text if it's in the same paragraph? And even if that's possible it's frustrating because if I change any of the layout I have to keep on going back to make sure no text has crept into the wrong section and is the wrong colour which is even harder because it may be white text on a white background and black on black and, thus, invisible. Maddening! Video of the problem. Affinity_Colour_Prob.mov
  19. Hi all, I downloaded a bunch of styles and they all have bitmap fills (see screenshots). Is there a way to change the fill without affecting the FX and so on? In particular I would like to shrink or enlarge the images and rotate them without changing the size and rotation of the container. I can do this in CorelDRAW. Is there a way to do this? Thanks!
  20. I don't know exactly how to classify the following curious behaviour of the "Styles panel", rather as a BUG or as a future feature. That's why I'm listing it here as a BUG and hope it is one! 1st problem When I create the style of an object or shape (grey rectangle with black outline) in the "Styles panel", I only see a black quad under Styles. But if I click on the button "Draw stroke behind" in the panel "Stroke" under "Order:" and create its style in the "Styles panel", I see a light grey gearwheel symbol on a black quad under Styles. I consider this visual behaviour in the Styles panel to be a BUG. styles_panel_visual_bug.mp4 2nd problem I can e.g. style an object without changing any parameters infinitely but as soon as I change the parameters (Style, Width, Cap, Join, Align, Mitre, Scale with object, Start, End, Arrow place, Swap) (except "Order:" parameters) in the "Brushes panel" or "Stroke panel" I cannot create a style in the "Styles panel". Only when I change the parameters in the "Stroke panel" (Order:), in the "Color panel" (Line colour, Fill colour, Opacity), in the "Effects panel" (Fill Opacity, Effects) and in the "Layer panel" (Layer Opacity, Blend options, Blend Ranges) can I create a new style. styles_panel_assing_bug.mp4 For me, the above-mentioned style behaviour or its purpose is not logical and I don't see it as a BUG, but rather as incomplete or ill-conceived programming. For understanding: The change of the parameters allows the creation of a new style in a category: - Create same object style (multiple possible) - Change line colour - Change fill colour - Change opacity - Layer Effects (Effects panel & Layers panel) - Switch Order - Blend Ranges "Blend Options" (Layers panel) - Layer Opacity (Layers panel) Changing the parameters does "not" allow a style to be added to a category: - Layer Adjustments (Layers panel) - Assign a Brush - Swap Arrow head - Stroke Style - Change Line Width - Change Pressure Here in the forum I found a few messages on a similar topic!
  21. One thing I have missed for a long time is the ability to copying and pasting individual Layer Effects. What I mean is that I have a set of Layer Effects which I have spent a long time tweaking saved in a Styles Group. And I have another set of Layer Effects which I've also spent a long time tweaking saved in Styles. I wish there was a way of copying some elements from one style and combining it with elements from the other style. When copying and pasting styles and effects they overwrite other styles and effects already applied to an object. Especially gradient outlines and overlays in the Layer Effects panel are a nightmare. There is no way of copying them as far as I know, and so the only solution is to make new gradients from scratch, which is enormously time consuming. It would be an enormous time saver to be able to copy, say an outline gradient from one object and an overlay gradient from another object - and of course other effects as well - on an individual, effect by effect basis. I envision an "effects palette", where you could pick for example the 3D effect settings from one object, the overlay gradient settings from a second object and the outline effects from a third object, apply them all to the object you're working on, and when you're happy with the result, maybe even be able to save the settings of this "palette" as a new style or as an "effects palette preset", where the individual settings can be tweaked further, enabled, disabled and combined with new effects picked from other objects and/or styles.
  22. Has anyone noticed issues with the Edit Text Styles panel? I see text cut off in the left column for "Color &" and "Position &". Same thing in Affinity Designer. Also, I sometimes change some settings in a style in Publisher and the text on the page with the style applied to it won't update. I see this happen more often when changing settings in the Decorations section when trying to apply paragraph rules and they just don't show up.

  24. I'm looking for input building a library of texture styles that are easy to apply to your design. And that don't make the files size too big. So I'm using small tiling (repeating) bitmap fills. There are 2 ways to build and apply the style library, can you tell me which you prefer? I recorded a video to show you the difference: https://vimeo.com/513749138. What do you think?
