Snap to text baseline

Recommended Posts

Text snapping is still half-baked, frankly. At the moment, if you move the rectangle it will snap to the baseline of the first line of text, but if you move the text, its baseline won't snap to the rectangle. We will fix it soon.

Snapping to text baseline is a must ... especially for Affinity's upcoming desktop publishing solution. I hope the code for that can be used in designer as well

 

 

I would even argue that text baseline snapping is more critical for screen layouts. The whole Google material design approach uses typographic grids. I don't understand how people actually use AD for grid layouts and typography.

How is “soon” defined? Please, give some hope.
