iPad Designer projects fonts and objects do not match

Recommended Posts

When I open a Designer project that I started on desktop on my iPad, the font are not correct size, example on desktop I use size 40, but on iPad the exact same font same size is too big for the project.

Also some of the objects are not aligned as with the desktop version.

 

Please fix this issues.

Are the units the same in both cases (rather than, for example, points in one and pixels in the other)? Is the document ‘DPI’ the same?

I didn't try it with Arial, I noticed it always happens with fonts I have to install.

Hi @Harold78 ,

I could not replicate it. 

Does that happen only with one specific font or document? Can you replicate it using a new document and a different font? Let's say Arial?

Thanks,

Gabe.

Yes, I checked and the units are the same.

I didn't check the dpi, because it is a document, that was already created, and it should open with the same setup as before shouldn't it?

What do you mean by this? How do you install the fonts? Are the fonts missing when you first open the document?

When I use a specific font for example Bree, I add it to designer, then open the document, and the fonts are always bigger then what it is on the desktop version.

Example it would say that the font size is 40 pt on both desktop and ipad, but when I open the document on ipad, the font flows over the design next to it, even though it says 40pt on the ipad also. So the font sizes are not 1-1 from desktop to ipad, it somehow converts bigger on ipad.

If you attach the .afdesgn file and font in question, we can have a look for you :)

Will do as soon as I am back at the office.
