Character transform shear not applied when text is printed

Recommended Posts

I have some text I was unable to mark italic so I applied 5 degrees of shear from the Character > Positioning and Transform properties. It looks fine on screen, and in an exported PNG, but I just noticed that when printed the shear was not applied and it was standing straight.

I just tested this in a blank document in both Designer and Photo and it wasn't a one-off:

Choose Artistic Text Tool

Select a typeface that doesn't have a real italic (I just tried Impact) and type some text.

Window > Text > Character > Positioning and Transform > Shear set to 5

Print (you can use Microsoft Print to PDF if you don't want to waste paper)

Hi @coolpowers and welcome to the forums,

This appears to be working correctly on macOS, which font or fonts, in particular, are not working for you?

Affinity Designer | Affinity Photo | Affinity Publisher
Affinity Designer 1.7.3 | Affinity Photo 1.7.3 | Affinity Publisher 1.10.8
MacBook Pro 16GB, macOS Monterey 12.6.8
