Font UI Scaling Issue in the Layers panel

Recommended Posts

Mac OS Big Sur, Version 11.7.2, Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014

Affinity Photo 2, Version 2.0.4

I need to have a bigger UI when making demo recordings. When I go to Preferences and change the Font UI size to Large, the layer names get cropped (see pic). I tried to fix this by changing the size of the layer thumb to Small but this doesn’t fix the scaling issue (see pic).

The issue "Font UI Size set to Large clips descenders in the Layers Panel" (REF: AFB-5632) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.

Please note this post refers to a Layers Panel specific fix and we will be working on other large fonts issues (of which there are many) in future releases.
