Supporting rtl in Affinity Designer for windows

Recommended Posts



I was very happy to know that affinity is available in window (even if it is just beta for now).


However, as an Arabic person I found that Affinity Designer doesn't support RTL or Arabic text. I was very happy to share the news about the beta version of windows, but most of Arab Designers will need RTL support. Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is huge and having RTL support in your product will be fascinating  and many will abandon Adobe products for sure because of the lower price with high technology Affinity support.


We just need support for adding text in Arabic not the interface in Arabic. I will just use tool for now till you support RTL




If you can add such tool in the program it self till you support RTL, this will be a very great thing :)


Thank you :)

Hello malozaibi,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

This was requested quite a few times already but as said earlier it will take quite some time until it becomes available since it's not a trivial task/feature to implement.

I'm moving this thread to the Feature Requests section.

Thank you MEB,


I hope you can implement it fast :) or even add a tool like the one in the post's link.

I guarantee that you will get a big part of Adobe's cake with this feature :)


Thank you.
