  1. Not sure if this is an issue or a limitation of Publisher. When I use the text tool I cannot zoom in or out. For example — If I am typing in a text box and I want to make a font bigger or smaller I cannot just zoom out, the zoom only works once I click the pointer tool, click off the text box and then zoom out. It's a very simple process but the idea that I have to change the tool, click off the text box, zoom out... and then re-select the text tool and then re-select the text box is a pain in the backside. Surely there is something I'm doing wrong...?? or is that just a limitation of the prog
  2. Hi, I want to use an artistic Brush to outline my text Text Strokes using brushes doesn't work Regards.
  3. type in english,that's right. if you type in other's(such us chinese),there are some punctuations in front of the row. like this pic.
  4. Love Affinity Designer. Been using for years. One thing I find routinely irritating when designing UI screens is that the text tool doesn't switch off after deselecting a text layer. Consider the following scenario: 1. Using the Move Tool, you drill into a piece of text that's clipped inside a rectangle. 2. Affinity Designer understands you now want to edit the text tool and automatically switches to the Text Tool. 3. You finish editing the text and deselect it. Now you must manually switch back to the Move Tool to repeat Step #1. I wou
  5. The standard text tool sometimes will not show any text when using. I can draw the text box and a color is set but when typing there is no text and deleting the layer and trying again has the same result. I'm using a font (usually Segoe script) but have tried others when the problem occurs and none work. The text layer is on top and if I switch to the Artistic text tool it will work. I'm on a Windows 10 machine and Affinity Photo ver 1.6.5 which was an update.
  6. Hi, My text tool has disappeared from the toolbar, anyone knows where to find it? :) Thanks
  7. I was curious, why this is not implemented yet? I think this is a standard functionallity :)
  8. Hello Just bought affinity designer and trying to learn how it works but every time when click on artistic text tool or uses shortcut T affinity designer crashes. I cant write any text. The whole report of crash is in attachment. Thanks for any help.
  9. Dear Developers, When exporting a file to SVG with text fields (ASCII art in my case) multiple spaces are written as simple consequent spaces in the XML file. Unfortunately XML, as HTML, will display these as a single space. Declaring xml:space="preserve" as you do, unfortunately does not suffice, because it works only if the string contains only spaces. A better approach would be to use non-breaking spaces: To keep the XML more readable you could code it to change from simple to non-breaking spaces only from the second consequent (included) onwards, so that normal prose would not be c
  10. I have posted about PDFs not being able to print at a print service center, even though I have curved/outlined all the fonts in AD. what about a space that was used in placing the text tool but was not use it, will this affect the file, as having a text tool mark/space and the font was not curved? I have noticed that some text did not get curved, even though I have selected the whole document to turn into curves. I still had to check every line of text. Are there limitations if I selected a porting of my document in AD and curved all the text, including graphics and shapes? I spent an ho
  11. There's a very specific combination of factors that causes this, but I verified in Illustrator that it's not just the font. I'm using the commercial font family Reatime, which is a monospaced font with an OpenType stylistic set that is proportionally-spaced. When the stylistic set is enabled in a text frame, certain combinations of letters (it seems random, but is replicable) result in a space wrapping to the next line, thus indenting the text on the new line. I can send a copy of the font for testing purposes to any of the developers.
  12. Hello there. When I start typing, the bounding box is somewhere else. Is this a bug or a feature? Thanks.
  13. When I'm designing I deal with text, graphics and photos. I am constantly switching from move tool to text tool. What is the fastest way to interchangeably switch from Text tool to Move tool. I know Escape is the one key and clicking outside the text box while holding Command so then to select V for the Move tool. The same case in illustrator, but I wonder if there is a plan to find a faster or more accessible to one key that does both. I have been on AD and AP since December. Trying not to use my old version of CS, so far so good, I have completed two designs with AD..
  14. New to Affinity design. My fonts are grainy. Sometimes when I'm doing and action the image gets blurred. When I'm done it looks fine. Im using a brand new mac book pro 2015. Any help would be great thanks.
  15. I stumbled across a problem. I used the text tool in AD to create some special characters with fill and stroke, but when I wanted to go back to write some other text, I couldn't get rid of what I had added, so all the text came out garbled as it was a smaller size and the stroke just messed it up. I have chosen no stroke but to no avail. It continued even when I started a new project. What gives?
  16. Hi, Just upgraded to OS X 10.11, a complete clean install. I've attached a screenshot of the problem I'm experiencing with Designer. When I select the text tool, next to the size dropdown I should normally get my font but I don't for some reason. I'm using FontExplorer Pro for my font management and have tried with and with it running but that doesn't seem to help. Deleted the preferences for Designer in ~Library/Containers but also not help. I can access fonts through the character palette and the collections that are in Font Book, but that's no use really. Has anyone e
  17. Hello, I have a big problem... I'd like to be able to type in Japanese using the text tool in Affinity Designer, but whenever I use the text tool and type in Japanese, it gives me these yellow blocks... I think that Affinity Designer is available in Japanese as well, so I was wondering if this was a glitch, or if Japanese text is not supported in the English language software? I need to use Japanese in my work so it would be most helpful..... thank you!
  18. Using the text tool, when I want to change the text box, change the width, is the letters supposed to stretch with it? How can I change the text box without it affecting the letters? and is it possible to deselect the text tool without having to click on another layer?
  19. Just bought this from the App Store. I've been using the beta's and this is the first time this has happened. I selected the type tool. But I could not type anything? I chose a font and a color? But it would not let me type. After a bit of trial and error. I noticed in the "character" panel that the language had nothing selected by default. The drop down menu was blank. I had to select "english", and then I could actually type. People might get frustrated if they can't type anything. I'd be curious to know if anyone else ran into that. Not sure if this is a bug or not. I never ran into
  20. Hi, Currently, there is multiple frictions in the App while trying to change colors to shape or text. - Right now the UI never remember what you did before. Everytime I click shape by shape, it's like the UI is showing a random tab instead of the last used one. - Not sure why you can't pick the text color directly with the text tool. You always have to go to selection mode to see the color option. - Not sure why the color picker doesn't change the current color after picking one. You have to click on the picked color to apply it. - Swatches are very tedious to use, esp with effect.
