  1. I’m loving everything Affinity is putting together. Also will there be ‪an addition of type controls (leading / tracking / kerning )with the hot keys( option key + arrow keys) for ipad. Option plus left and right controlling the tracking and kerning. Option plus up-and-down controlling the leading like adobe hot key. ‬once learned this hot key in the adobe its been tough on ipad trying to keep ip my type placement speed with out it.
  2. Importing a pdf into AD causes some kerning issues. The pdf was generated using R, and on import AD says all fonts are available. I don't see this issue in Preview or Illustrator.
  3. See video attached. When altering the tracking on a selection of body, the tracking resets back to 0% as soon as you click back into the text box. AffinityPublisherBeta-1.70.57-MacOSMojave-TrackingReset.m4v
  4. Hi there, I would like to ask if anyone else has the same behaviour as me when typing text in the 1.6.1 of AD. Assume that I create a body text style with a specific kerning and tracking number (negative values). I type the text, all good (upper text paragraph in the image). However, when I revisit the paragraph and add something (Affinity Designer), the kerning and tracking in this latest addition is lost (upper text paragraph in the image). I need to select all the text and select the paragraph style again to correct it (lower text paragraph in the image). You see the problem for the guide lines I have inserted. Best regards, A.
  5. The SVG export in AD of a text term (both frame and artistic) does not appear to recognize AD tracking correctly.The SVG made from AD puts the proper tracking between the first and second character of a single word, but then bunches all of the next letters together as if they had no tracking, but the last letter appears in its proper place at the very end with a large space before it, i.e., as if all of the other letters had been properly tracked. I have tried using kerning rather than tracking in creating the same single term (again in both frame and artistic text), but all metric options are greyed (not available). In this respect, I have to return to Illustrator which works better, although the tracking/kerning in the SVG is slightly less than in the original. BTW, I'm still trying to figure out how kerning vs tracking works in AD since it appears to be different than I understand from my publishing experience. Are there any posts or help articles that could illuminate my ignorance?
  6. First I want to say that you guys are literally the only ones who have made the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro useful. Seriously, it's great execution on having appropriate adjustments and functions on the bar. Most app devs treat the bar like an after-thought and, if implemented appropriately (which it almost never is), it's quite useful. Something I'd love to see implemented is a more robust Touch Bar for the character menu. Currently there are only the three bold, italic, and underline options, all of which often aren't applicable for most fonts. I can imagine having things like tracking, leading, and font size dials available, perhaps with a few options like all-caps or small-caps. And while I wouldn't want the actual font-picker menu on the touch bar (way too much swiping), having a picker for font variations within a family would certainly be valuable (slightly less swiping). I can even imagine seeing ligature or Open-Type variants pop up when highlighting specific characters.
  7. Hi, When I freehand sketch ('Draw Persona'), Designer makes certain choices when interpreting my Vector Brush-ed or Pencil-ed lines into vectors. ¿¿ Is there a preference or settings dialog to control how accurate the resulting sketched path is?? Like: many nodes for 'Accurate', fewer nodes for 'Simplified, etc.? thanks, - pbass
  8. Hi, (Working in Designer 1.5.1) When increasing the tracking value of a line of artistic text, the distance between the bounding box and the text increases as well. This seems undesirable functionality because it limits snapping possibilities. It's also a bit inconsistent, because spaces at the end of the line are being ignored (desired behaviour).

    Tracking

    Wish I could dial in tracking on text to decimals instead of that weird percentage value. I know this has been touched on before.
  10. Hi, I just noticed that when you add any percentage of tracking to text element it automatically adds tracking on the last letter of the text, this behaviour is not wrong but is a little annoying for centered text compositions because the text with more tracking will be offset to the left. Here is comparison example between Photoshop and Designer behaviours. The text background shows how the tracking works in affinity, I think that the photoshop behaviour is better in this case. Maybe this could be the default behaviour? Thanks ;) Note: When editing the text object, both photoshop and affinity behaves the same way, the difference (!important) is that affinity keeps the spacing on the last letter within the bounding box after editing.
