Problems with fonts in ADwin

Recommended Posts

I created a page with different fonts (see Fonts-test.afdesign). On the screen everything looks ok.

When I print the page, some texts are illegible (see my scan: Test-Print Original.pdf). I exported the page in AD as a pdf. The pdf is o.k. Then I printed the pdf. The pdf-print is fine, too.

 

Then I tested the fonts with CorelDraw: no problems - all o.k.

 

Has someone an idea, what’s wrong?

Hi KoBu,

Could you attach a copy of the following fonts please: GarineldoNo01, Kleymissky and ShelleyVolanteBT-Regular please? Without these it will be hard to assist or reproduce the issue.

Thanks!

Supplement:

 

The fonts Shelley Allegro, Shelley Andante and Shelley Volante: In AD they were displayed as a sole font and can only altered in the menu in „reguar“, „regular“, „regular“, without knowing which Shelley you choose.

 

In CorelDraw and Word they are displayed in the fonts als Shelley Allegro, Shelley Andante and Shelley Volante.

My guess is the application is treating the family as just 'Shelley' and then the others as the actual weights. I will take a look into that as well and pass it onto the developers.:)

I've passed on the issue regarding the Shelley font, however this looks to be a fault of the fonts themselves (Mac's Font Book also displays them the same as Affinity) - however the fact that all other apps seem to handle them means we should try.

Regarding the issue with printing - that is a known issue that has been fixed in the upcoming build. :)

Thank you Sean,

I will wait for the next build and then try again.

The fonts made by Gluk are in the public domain, but the Shelley Script fonts are commercial fonts which should therefore not be shared publicly.

I've now removed the fonts from the post - however they are vital for us to resolve the issues.

Thanks, Sean. I understood that those fonts needed to be shared with you; I just thought they were better not shared publicly!

In build 1.5.0.6 the error (printing) has been corrected.

Thanks

I'm seeing incorrect behaviour with the Shelley Script fonts in build 1.5.0.7. Regardless of whether they are installed, loaded or uninstalled, AD warns
 

The following fonts are missing:

ShelleyAllegroBT-Regular

 

when I open the attached file. ShelleyAndante BT and ShelleyVolante BT are not mentioned. I see '? Shelley' in the Context toolbar when I select any of the Shelley Script text objects on the page, even when those fonts are fully installed, and if I drag the object to a new position on the page the displayed font family name changes to 'Accord SF', which is alphabetically one of the first fonts installed in Windows on this machine (but not the very first one).

Hi Alfred,
I noticed another error:
When I click on your attached file and say open, (the before started) AD crashes (see attached jpg).
I have to download the file first and then I can open it.

Hi KoBu, 

 

What version of Affinity do you currently have installed? There was an issue in 1.5.0.6 where it would crash if you tried to open a file by double clicking it or starting Affinity again. This should have been fixed in 1.5.0.7

Thank you Sean,

I have not noticed that there is 1.5.0.7. now.

After installing there is no crash when opening the upper file.

 

In the fonts menu I see now all the three shelley and the two garineldo fonts. Nevertheless I get the following message (see attached jpg).

 

By the way:

By starting the new AD 1.5.0.7. my avira stopped the program (see attached jpg "Meldung Avira"), tested it, and after a "o.k." could start regularly AD. In previous versions I have not experienced that.

Hi KoBu,

If you reapply the fonts and resave/reload the file it should no longer report an issue with the fonts. I believe this is probably due to some changes with made with fonts in the new build. As for the Antivirus message it might just have been a little bit cautious. We've not received any other reports regarding Antivirus software not liking the EXE so it might just be a one off.

There are actually three Garineldo fonts in my document, KoBu. GarineldoNo01 and GarineldoNo02 are displayed correctly in your screenshot, but Garineldo has been substituted by one of the Foglihten fonts (No07?) from the same font designer.

Thanks, Sean. The Shelley Script font names are correctly shown on the Context toolbar after I reapply the fonts.

Hi Alfred,

I have overlooked the normal Garineldo.

You are right: Garineldo seems to be FoglihtenNo07

That appears to me the same way.

The "Garineldo" in your file will be displayed as "?Garineldo".
