A problem I run into every time I make the simplest poster.... I come up with a dozen fonts I like and I want to quickly compare them in my design and switch back and forth.

How do I do this??

I always end up writing a phrase out on a new doc and setting all the different fonts to compare. Ridiculous. 

Is there a way to make a font set in Affinity so I can quickly compare??

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, Eric. :)

Font managers usually allow you to set up a custom string of sample text but there are also online tools such as Wordmark.it which should help with a task like this.

There are some type utilities that allow loading uninstalled fonts and applying these rapidly to test phrase. It has been years since I did that kind of work so I do not know which tools are best currently.

You can also make a group of fonts in font manager app and access that group in Designer or Publisher if you can select right candidates in font manager. You can then roll though the faces using arrow key.
