Installing fonts still doesn’t work


Recommended Posts

Installing fonts with the Affinity suite is extremely frustrating. Whether it’s through the Affinity apps, or through a third party font installer, or through Creative Cloud, it’s almost impossible to get them to work. If they show up at all in the font list, there’s a good chance they will be displayed as generic Chinese characters, and I’ll have to test each one to see what font it actually is. Then the next time the app is open, there’s a good chance the fonts will be gone, even if they show up in the installed fonts in the Affinity settings. It’s been more than six months since this issue appeared, I would think this would be a pretty big priority, but it’s still broken.

What version of iPadOS do you use? What release of the Affinity apps?

There is currently a known issue with the latest iOS beta that prevents fonts from being installed into Affinity this should be fixed by the time this version of iOS is officially released.

Please tag me using @ in your reply so I can be sure to respond ASAP.

Will this also fix the Text Font List that displays….not just Chinese characters instead, BUT ALSO displaying Fonts with other fonts entirely or manifesting Font Names that are not even installed? This has been a major issue, and seems to be getting worse.

‘I go to select a font, and when choosing some by name (or aesthetic look) …it is visually another font that’s installed instead, or simply defaults to a generic one similar or not.
