Hi,

is it possible to add a dialog for missing font similar to the one when opening PDF file?

Hi @Petar Petrenko,

is this request about replacing missing fonts or just to find out which fonts are missing?

I assume you know that there is a way to see missing fonts in AD?
Choose the text tool and in the font dropdown (top left) click on the 'Used' button. The missing fonts are preceded by a question mark.

There is another method:
In the 'Character Palette' at the top left you can choose 'Missing' and see a list just of the missing fonts.

I do not know according to what rules missing fonts are actually substituted.

Cheers,
d.

I would suspect Petar's main requirement would be the eventual replacement post import.At least, that would be mine, especailly when opening other people's AD files.

In most all applications I use, this is easily done post import. It would be nice.

Yes, I can find them, but I want to replace them and it is not possible in any Affinity app unless you try to open PDF with missing fonts.

Even Photoshop doesn't recognize it.

I understand. Replacing the missing fonts seems not to be possible in an automated way at the moment. I support this request.
