  1. Hi, I have tried alot to find out the text arching features like lower arching upper arching features in Affinity Designer as well as free transforming of texts but all in vain. Examples of which I have attached(taken from google). So far I have to use adobee illustrator to do these arching and transforming and take it back to affinity designer which is really time consuming. Is there this feature already or are you guys planning to release it anytime soon? Its a big let downbecause so important these features are
  2. I'm on a Win10 computer. I'm an affinity photo newbie I'm working on a book cover and I want to have a sort of marbleizing of color, or a swirl of a darker shade within the color of the text of the title. I've tried adding shadows, and I can do that to the outside of the text, but not having much luck on the inside.
  3. When I create a Title on my project (a book cover), I can click on "character" to change the size etc. But how can I do this to only one letter? I want to enlarge the First Letter of each word, but if I use a select tool to select only that letter, the character items don't work. I tried just selecting the letter, then clicking on "move" but only the selection box changes size, not the letter? Obviously I'm missing something
  4. Hi, Starting this topic on request from your reply on my tweet: https://twitter.com/affinitybyserif/status/1097431968562769921 So I have a multiline text that has the "Justified All" property set for text alignment. As you can see in the video, depending on the zoom level of the viewport, the text behaves in a weird manner. As if at some zoom the text is displayed as expected, at some other zoom the first line ignores the Justified All property, and in between there is a glitch that displays half of the text correctly, and half of the text wrong. When exporting, with these dimensions, I got the half/half result. This issue was pretty annoying, and my workaround was to create multiple text layers instead of one multiline. I included the .afphoto document to this thread, as well as the video and screenshot I posted on Twitter. Hope this helps to investigate the issue, as it is very annoying. Best regards, Jordan Enregistrement_de_l’écran_2019-02-16_à_17_30_24.mov Thumbnail-WTF.afphoto
  5. I have a .psd created in photoshop elements. It opens ok in Affinity photo. I am having trouble getting the exported pdf to show text as a vector (with zero pixelation when zoomed in). Can you please tell me what settings I should use during export to make sure text has zero pixelation when zoomed in? When I export the same .psd using photoshop elements, the resulting .pdf renders the text as a vector so I know its not a problem with my design setup. Also my print company recommends pdf/x-4 as the output profile but that preset in affinity photo produces a text with pixelated edges. The only change I made to the psd file in affinity photo was a conversion to cmyk color profile. I would like to start using affinity photo by default but need to be able to confidently render psd files to pdf with the text output as vector with no pixelation. Also I notice when I change the setting to "no rasterization" when outputting to pdf from .psd, it ignores any clipping masks applied so the image is not as intended. Can you please advise settings to try in this situation. Thanks so much.
  6. I can not find a text style picker in Affinity publisher, it would be nice if that function comes with it in the future?
  7. Hi everybody, I'm sorry to ask a probably simple question: When I use the 'artistic text' tool, the letter are shown in pink color regardless of the Font Colour setting in the panel. The text shows the chosen color only if I switch to 'Preview Mode'. When I use the 'Frame Text Tool' the letters are shown in their original color. There is just a pink frame around the text. As soon as I switch to 'Preview Mode' the pink frame disappears. Question: Is there a way to get rid of the Pink Colour for artistic text in Non-Preview Mode. It looks ugly and is distracting but I don't want to work in Preview Mode. Thanks for help wuerdentraeger
  8. Is it possible to have Text On Path in Affinity Photo? I know it's possible in Affinity Designer but I can't seem to do it in Affinity Photo. I tried creating a Path with the Pen Tool and then using the Artistic Text Tool and typing but can't get it to follow the path.
  9. When typing text in a Photoshop document, there is a popup available that displays the following anti-aliasing options: None Sharp Crisp Strong Smooth The addition of these would make Affinity Photo's type handling even more powerful. Thanks.
  10. I'm a new user of the Affinity Designer. I'm wondering if I can change the text to flow vertical while keeping the upright text orientation. For example, Chinese and Japanese text can be written vertical direction.
  11. Hi guys, this tutorial show how you can achieve an interlaced text effect. If you found it useful, youtube likes and comments are greatly appreciated)
  12. 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.
  13. I'm using a Mac OS 10.9.5 but couldn't import text because in the Text Column the choice Import Text from File doesn't exist. I had to do a Copy/Paste to bring in text from another document. What am I doing wrong? Thanks. Frank B
  14. I'm trying Affinity Publisher Beta 1.7.0.227 on a Mac using OS 10.9.5 (Mavericks) and the Import Text from File is not in the Text drop down menu so I can't import text from other documents. I tried using File Place with the cursor in the Text Box but all my documents were "greyed" and clicking on them doesn't work. The Help files from Affinity say to use Import Text from Files in the Text drop down menu so I looked at other drop down menus but the command just doesn't exist. Suggestions? Thanks. Frank
  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. In the Paragraph Styles panel under Paragraph/Spacing you can set the Alignment to the following: Left Center Right Justify Last Line Left Justify Last Line Center Justify Last Line Right Justify All It would be nice to see the following: Away from Spine Toward Spine It is needed (for me) in instances where i am working with headers/footers primarily, and for other layouts when putting together books for art exhibitions etc.
  17. Hi, I've just noticed something with text on a curve that I hadn't notice before. I have some text going around two circles for top and bottom text - I created the original file early on in the first Windows beta a couple of years ago. The text in 1.7 doesn't follow the curve, most noticeable with the H, M and N in the top text whereas with the the original beta the text flows virtually perfectly. The top image is the early AD and the bottom is in 1.7. I've also attached the 1.7 file which is a straight copy and paste of the text objects with an extra circle. misaligned text on a curve.afdesign
  18. Hi, I was wondering if it was possible when creating a path and then attaching a Text on this path to retrieve the original path. I can't seem to find a way to do it. This is really weird and frustrating. Many thanks. Nicolas
  19. I keep getting a issue with backspace and with the arrow keys when writing, a restart fix it but I keep coming back after a while. Basic when using backspace it create a space and when using the arrow keys it create [] symbol
  20. I am finding that at times when I create a text frame the Letters start outside the frame, sometimes they do not, any ideas please?
  21. Would it be useful if you could import and export text styles? Single or multiple text styles together.
  22. It might be nice if the Initial Words text formatting functionality was extended to allow the user to specify whether the End Character(s) were displayed or not. This would allow us to have variable-length Initial Words formatting while using the same paragraph style instead of needing one style for each slightly different scenario. See the attached image which, I hope, explains it better. P.S. This is a very low priority suggestion. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't then that's fine. Just 'popping it into the pot'.
  23. I can add stroke just fine. I suppose I should build a scenario. I make a text, I convert this text to curves then add a stroke to make the text appear more bold and appear the way I want it to, but then when I export the file (to .svg format) and send that file over to another software for another use, the text (already converted to curves and with stroke) appears without any stroke. I've checked on the .svg file when exported and it's fine, but when the other software reads the file it only reads the curves not the stroke. I understand you can't change the way another software reads an .svg file. My question is if there is any way for me to add the stroke as part of the actual curve itself on Affinity. I've gone around this by tracing the entire stroke around the text (converted to curves) itself on other projects, but its very time consuming. This process more than triples my the time I have to work on each project with this problem. So any help is appreciated, thank you
  24. It might be nice if there was also - along with Initial Words - a Final Words formatting scenario with exactly the same options as Initial Words but from the other end of the paragraph. The attached image shows a few examples of use but there are probably more. Not really sure how useful this would be to most people but it would have been useful to me on at least one occasion. P.S. This is a very low priority suggestion. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't then that's just fine.
  25. I know how to attach text to a curve in designer, but can't find the option in photo. Does it exist? If so, where is the feature / button TIA, Jeff
