Affinity Photo: Stroke option on text missing

Recommended Posts

Hey there, 

the context toolbar of the artistic text function in Affinity Photo is suddenly lacking the stroke options. I can't find an according option in the view / studio settings and there are no hidden elements on right of the context toolbar (no double arrow). Where is it gone and, even more important, how can I get it back? :)

Kind regards

The text stroke options are now in the "Decorations" section of the Character panel:


Click on the line (tool tip name is "cell stroke") to pop up a window that is identical to the Designer Stroke panel:1476875375_strokesubpanel.jpg.2a7975882da1dda4a925c6794bcda5f7.jpg

Clicking on the color swatch next to it pops up a standard color chooser window with all the usual wheel, slider, etc. options.

Because this is a character attribute, you must select (highlight) the text you want to apply a stroke to for this to work. So as before, you can mix different stroke styles within one text block.
