  1. hi there, I will preface this with saying I've just came to affinity photo from photoshop, I'm self-taught with PS so i can't even say I know much about that either! I'm a boardgame designer and I'm using affinity photo to create cards, which are a combination of text and icons. On PS when creating space at the end of a text line it would include the spaces as characters for centre alignment purposes, but I can't seem to give spaces any 'volume' in photo now that i've opened the PSD in affinity. I've tried using special characters and playing about with paragraph options but don't want to mess about with it too much, any ideas? The simpler the explanation the better, I'm a noob!
  2. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  3. OMFG!!! Just switching over from Photoshop, and I cannot begin to tell you how much I hate working with text. I can't edit my text once I've created it — not with any tool. WTF?!!! And in the layers I have groups with all the letters? Who thought this shit up?
  4. The text cursor in AP 1.9.1 is wonky. I created a text block. When I insert the text cursor at the beginning of the last line to add a space, the whole working area shifts to the left and the cursor shifts off the "artboard". I quit AP, restart, and it still behaves the same way . . .
  5. Only two months into using Affinity Designer here. Starting at some point through the progress of my project, any time I create and type new Artistic Text, a purple highlight appears behind it. I don't remember messing with any settings to make it appear. I've tried to look very carefully at the color options on the Artistic Text object but I can't find anything. What am I missing? This hasn't happened to me during other projects until after the 1.9 update, so there's the possibility of a bug or new feature/setting that I'm not aware of yet. I also attached what the problem looks like in Affinity Designer. The text color was intended to be white, and the color shows as white in the Color tab.
  6. Hi there, I'm trying to add text on path in 2 ways and don't know how to do it: 1. Add text on path on the top of diamond shape, but keep all the letters pointing straight up. 2. Shape the text in diamond (starts short, tallest in the middle, then short at the end). Please help, i couldn't find any tutorial for that online. Thanx.
  7. I know it can now be done with border text. But large paragraphs of text can be cumbersome. This kind of typesetting is very common in Eastern countries, such as Japan, South Korea and China. I wonder if you could consider adding this function, just like Adobe Illustrator.
  8. Hello, i used CorelDraw X7 until now. I know, there are different ways to export files to edit them in Affinity Designer. I'm having a problem importing text. Some text is importted as text, but other parts are imported as vectors. This means, i can't edit this text any more. This happens in any file format like PDF or SVG. Any idea, how i can import all text as text? Thanks.
  9. Hello there, So I'm a website designer, and I would like to design in Affinity Designer more. I found a problem though that is preventing me from doing that full-time...When I export my files to PSD (for handing over to developers) and open them in Photoshop, the text layers appear as image/raster layers and aren't editable. Please help. This is a very important issue for me to resolve. I cannot proceed with using Affinity Designer if our dev team can't edit the texts. Other than this, I am really loving this software. Please help. Thanks, Eli
  10. Can you please integrate bigger and smaller buttons in text options? Your predetermined text sizes always are either way too small or way too big. Please consider. Having to enter in the field then return to see it apply, THEN do it again is a waste of time. Thanks.
  11. With Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo v1.6.0.89 I have to press: Ctrl+Shift+> to increase size Ctrl+Shift+< to decrease size and a very nimble fingered: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+> to precise increase Ctrl+Alt+Shift+< to precise decrease I believe the default shortcuts should not require the Shift key option.
  12. If a text is Bottom Aligned, by default, it is placed exactly on the line/outline of the selected area. This not happens when the same text is Top Aligned. How to perfectly align text to the top? text is Bottom Aligned here text is Top Aligned HOW TO ELIMINATE THIS GAP?
  13. Some time ago I presented a formula to plug into Equations to warp text along a wavy baseline. I promised to create a macro to perform this, but never got round to it. Well here is that macro and a library containing it. Wavy Text.afmacro Wavy Text.afmacros The transformation is just a sine/cosine curve: y=y-(h*a/3)*(b*sin(360*x/w/c)+(1-b)*cos(360*x/w/c)) The a parameter determines the amplitude. The default is a=0.5, which creates a wave that reaches about half way to the top and bottom of the layer. The b parameter shifts the position of te wave along the horizontal axis. The c parameter affects the wavelength. Reducing c gives more waves along the x-axis. If you start with a text layer such as: and apply the macro with the default parameters, you get: The macro is designed to operate on a text object on a background. It needs the background to give it room. It begins by rasterizing the text to a pixel layer. It uses the height and width of the background layer to determine the amplitude and wavelength, not the height and width of the text itself. To use this, I would suggest creating a new document of a size to hold the text, then warp it, then place or copy it into the target document with an appropriate blending mode. John
  14. Hi all, i'm very new to affinity and photo editing in general. I have a picture in which I've added a layer of text. It seems that I once it's created, I can't edit the text however. clicking on it with the pointer tool selects it, or the background behind it, but won't let me edit. clicking on it with the text tool just starts a new text layer on top of the old one. I must be doing something wrong on a basic level. Any ideas? I've attached my project if anyone cares to open it up and have a look. I'm on a mac, sierra OS. affinity v 1.5.2 Thanks!!

  15. I have a hexagon. The points are top and bottom. I want them left and right, so I turn it either by the turn handle or by the toolbar. Now I add text to create shaped text. No matter what I do, the text aligns from the points, so instead of reading left to right, it reads from bottom to top. How do I correct this ?
  16. When I have a text box selected in my layers and tap on the group button the text reverts to 85pt. It seems to be ok if I create a group with something else then drag the text box into the group. I’m running Designer 1.9.3 on iOS 14.4 and my iPad is 6th gen. Model # A1893
  17. I'm new to Affinity Designer and really struggling. Is there a tutorial on editing text in an eps file?
  18. Hi everyone ! Just a quick question/request as there are numerous topics in the older forums already over the last 3+ years (moved my question as I've noticed that the other forum is deprecated, the old post can be deleted): Is there any news about importing editable text in *.eps files? I've bought Affinity Designer a few days ago and now searched the forums after struggling with the non-editable text in those files... If not: That would make a great feature request😂 Affinity Designer is really an awesome tool but this is a core thing (in my opinion) as most of the *.eps templates we're working with require text editing 😕 Thanks and best regards 😊
  19. I have a weird bug in the latest version of Designer. In the attached file, when I group the two objects (circle and text box), the text scales up a little bit. 247 365.afdesign
  20. In designer 1.9, when you group a text frame and a form with transparency gradient, the final text size is larger than the original if the text frame has been resized previously. Steps to reproduce result: Create a text frame and write some text Enlarge the text frame dragging the resize handler (The one that enlarges both frame and text) Create a form and apply a transparency gradient to it Group the text frame and the form. Text gets enlarged in the same proportion that it was enlarged before. Note that this only happens when grouping (with menu, contextual menu or command+G), but it does not happen if you manually place the text frame into the group moving its layer, so the error is in the group action itself and the resize being reapplied to the text..
  21. Please add an Envelope Distort Feature, A function that lets you warp text and shape paths
  22. I have of text objects that I want to group (first screen shot). When I group them, the point size changes (2nd screen shot). Is this a bug?
  23. Inline objects vanish when converting its parent text to a curve.
  24. Hi, it would be very useful to be able to link text area content to external files (such as .txt or .md or else) so that when the external file is updated, text area content will be updated too. Is this something we can achieve with Affinity Publisher? Thanks, Francesco
  25. I use quite an exotic language on my devices - Polish - which belongs to the quite large group of languages unsupported by Affinity. That wouldn’t actually be a problem for me if not the auto-correction feature - which is not synchronized with the system-wide auto-correction, because my system language is Polish and when using text tools Affinity always mark all my Polish words as wrong . And again that wouldn’t be a problem (until I do some orthographic mistake) because auto-correction can be easily switched off in text tool settings (Check spelling while typing) but the problem is: if I turn it off in one document, it reverts back on when I close the document and enter it, or any other again. So the result is: always when I enter a document with text I’m welcomed by unfriendly red squiggly (unless I design something English) I tried using both “English” and “Default” setting in language option in Designer’s settings.
