  1. It would be a nice addition to be able to resize text and multiple text objects by inputting point size AND have them all reduce or increase size by the transformation panel reference point. It does do this now but I have to input an overall width in the transformation panel. Just would keep things uniform in point size and not get a weird decimal point size. Thanks
  2. Whenever I doubleclick on a textframe to adjust it to its content, Affinity Designer crashes. This happens mostly in documents with multiple artboards and groups/layers.
  3. Couldn't find another thread about this, sorry if it's already been addressed. I am using Affinity photo for web design. I exported my file to psd, when I opened it in Photoshop CS6 on a mac, all the text had been rasterized. I have not tried it in Creative Cloud or on a PC. Is this a known "issue", or was that purposeful? I know AP is meant for photographers, but I, and others, would be using it for web design.
  4. Hi All, is there a way to view only certain text styles when choosing a font? Eg: I'm looking for a sans-serif font and would rather not have to go through every font to find what I want. I can see 'All, Recent, Used & Favorites' selections up the top but not an option for style type? Am I missing it? Thanks for the help.
  5. For instance, the below text:- (literally:- are you going this year, brother ?) is not rendered properly in both Designer and Photo. The area that I highlighted contains tone mark which is supposed to be a bit higher than the upper-level characters, However, they are placed at the same level, and clash with each other. This suggested that the OpenType GPOS table is not applied.
  6. Hey guys, Right now, if I select a word inside a text field and I wanna use the color picker to color only that specific word, it's not possible, as the whole text field changes the color I choose with the picker. It would be great to have the possibility of changing the color of only a portion of text with the color picker. Thanks
  7. Hello, I don't understand why the leading changes between the different lines in this Text Frame (attached image). Between the first and the second line, the text "ran outside" the bounds of the Frame, and created two lines automatically. Between the second and third line, I hit the return key, creating the third line manually. If I highlight all of the text, the leading is the same (12.4pt in this case). Why is the space between the second and third line different than the space between the first and second line? Thank you!
  8. Hello. You may have read my earlier question. I think that I'm going to abandon the monogram idea for now because I'm so picky. I'd like to create a logo with text above and below the horizontal axis of the circle but I don't know how to do it in Affinity Designer. Here's an image that might help to help you understand that it is that I'm going for. I can get the text above the horizontal axis but I'm having trouble getting it below the horizontal axis. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  9. How can i make this text effect in Designer? I've had some suggestions from an Illustrator user but I don't know how to replicate what they've done. I've tried the Effects-Outer Shadow but can't get this crisp edge or the layers to "blend". "Glitter test" shows what I was able to do so far just using the Effects-Outer Shadow... help!
  10. Hi! I started using Affinity Photo on my iPad and I'm loving it, but i'm having a little problem. I'm not able to export the file to psd, with the editable layerm so I can change the texts in my Photoshop (even by selecting the preset PSD - Preserve editability,) is there any way to do this? Thank you very much for the help.

  15. I type out text using the Artistic Text or Text Frame tools, then double (or triple) click and proceed to highlight the text that I want to make adjustments to. The only problem is, I can't see what I've selected because the text doesn't become highlighted! I could still make edits, but it takes alot more time if I am moving quickly and don't put my cursor where I think it should be. Any help? Affinity Designer 1.6.1, Mac 10.13.3
  16. The screenshot speaks for itself really, I know this is a thing in Photoshop but is there any way to snap the bottom line of the Frame Text to the bottom part of some text? I'd need this to space everything out just right. Thanks

When I exported it as PDF, the overlapped section, does not show the clipped imaged, instead it clipped itself and showed the background color. This does not happen when I exported to png. Pls find picture below as comparison Kindly advise. Thanks in advanced! E.

  20. Hi can anyone help me heres my problem. Cant get text to follow path no matter what. Any shape or curve no matter the method I use the artistic text cursor doent change to squiggly line. Green highlight lines pop up but text still goes straight across. Tried everything = "To create text on a path selecting a shape, change to the Artistic Text Tool and mouse-over the path. The cursor should change to a "T" with a wave line below. Click and start typing. Alternatively you can select a shape go to menu Layer ▸ Convert to Text Path and start typing. Additionally you can also use a shape as a text frame. To do it select the shape, change to the Frame Text Tool, click inside the shape and start typing (or go to menu Layer ▸ Convert to Text Frame). To convert text to curves, select it with the Move Tool and click on Convert to Curves button on the context toolbar" None of these work. I have follow instructions to the letter, watch several different methods and videos. There is no convert text to curve option in layer menu no matter what I have selected. This is basic stuff why is this so difficult to make work? Is this a bug? Corrupted version? I have affinity on desktop and on laptop both are having these issues. Update fix? Please help.

  25. Hi guys, When I copy text from Word for example, the font of my text field in Affinity changes to SymCat (it's a weird font, I have no idea why I have it installed ). Anyway, if I copy it first in Notepad, which doesn't support text formatting, and then I copy it to Affinity, everything is cool. But it's way too time consuming. Is there a way to stop Affinity from formatting text I paste in a text field? I only need the text content, I don't want the formatting from another program, doesn't make much sense Thank you, Chris
