Systematically convert elements with one text style to another text style

Recommended Posts

I frequently copy and paste items between Affinity Designer files.


When I do that, Affinity Designer helpfully adds these items' Text Styles.


There's a catch, though. I end up with superfluous text styles that do the exact same thing (e.g. "Caption", "Caption 1", "Caption 2", "Caption 3", etc.)


I'm not sure why identical Text Styles are added in the first place, but it highlights the need for deeper functionality.


Ideally, I'd be able to Find and Replace Text Styles (e.g. "Caption 1" --> "Caption"). This would be helpful even without duplicate Text Styles.


Without this function, it seems to me that effective maintenance of Text Styles is impossible.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @affinitydesignerfan. :)


I would hope that better handling of text styles will come with Publisher and be added to Designer after that.
