How to remove Publication Typefaces Collection fonts that have been dragged into the app?


Recommended Posts

I dragged a few of the downloaded Publication Typefaces Collection *affont fonts (the single Pancakes font & the 12 Aeroko ones) into the open APub 2 UI to install them to see if I wanted to use them. 

Problem is, I don't want to use them & I can't figure out how to remove them. I tried installing the whole set from my Accounts window & then clicking the checkmark icon to uninstall them, but that still leaves the 13 fonts listed above installed.

Did you relaunch your apps? 

I relaunched APub V2, which is the only one I dragged the fonts into, but just to make sure I have since quit & relaunched all 3 V2 apps.

Nothing changed -- the 13 fonts are still there in APub V2,

According to this help page, unchecking them should suffice to uninstall…
https://affinity.serif.com/fr/store/resources-install-guide/

You can probably move yourself these fonts out of their supposed repository:

~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher 2/AffinityFonts

(Please note that this is in your User library, normally hidden in macOS. To go there, you can copy this path, cmd-shift-G, paste and enter.)

I do not see anything on the https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/store/resources-install-guide/US English version of that help page about a checkbox or uninstalling those files, nor can I find anything in the APub V2 UI with a checkmark for those fonts.

Thanks! After a restart that seems to have done the trick!

Tip: Any installed add-on, even if it was installed automatically, can be uninstalled by clicking its status icon. Note that in an Affinity 2 app, this will uninstall the add-on from all other Affinity 2 apps on your device.” 

I don't know more about it…

But restarting was certainly the good move to do as relaunching wasn't enough.

That's for the case where the user installed them via the Account dialog. If the user installed the .Affinity files manually, they have to be deleted manually.

You're right. And as @R C-R said he installed his fonts by dragging them in the UI (thus manually) AND from his account (automatically), he perhaps had to uninstall them twice?…

I think that applies to the icon in the Account window (which shows a checkmark instead of the 'cloud' icon after anything is installed via the Accounts panel), but like I said that doesn't work for items dragged into the app's UI manually.

??? Relaunching & restarting the app is the same thing but neither helped until I manually removed those fonts from ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher 2/AffinityFonts & then restarted APub V2.

I successfully uninstalled all 70 fonts from my Account except the ones I installed manually. The only way to uninstall them was by going into ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher 2/AffinityFonts, manually removing them from that directory, & restarting APub.

IOW, those 13 fonts installed manually via dragging were not affected at all by using Accounts to supposedly uninstall all 70 fonts. They were not uninstalled twice, only once, & only manually via going into the folder & moving them to the trash from there.
