Option to outline fonts on PDF import (as for EPS)


Recommended Posts

It's been well-observed that the Affinity Suite 'doesn't support' the import of PDFs with embedded fonts, and attempting to do so causes a variety of issues.

However, Designer imports EPS and PostScript files with embedded fonts perfectly accurately, because it outlines all the embedded font data.

It would solve a great many problems if Designer offered the option to outline the embedded font data, as for EPS files, in the PDF import dialog.

I'm presuming that this would be a 'relatively easy fix', as Designer can already outline EPS at import, (and it can outline font data in PDFs when exporting).
