Font is not loaded into Affinity Photo (Windows)

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

After two decades of Paintshop Pro it seems I am switching to a new program! I love Affinity so far, been at it for two days now. There is only one major issue for me. For my work I am using several fonts quite extensively. But one of them is not loading correctly. It is the bahnschrift ttf font of which only the 'regular' is loading. And that is loading 15 times as you can see from the screenshot.

I am on a Dutch Windows 10, 64 bit, all patched up, and downloaded and installed Affinity just two days ago.

This font is working fine in other programs...bahnschrift.ttf

Thanks!

The font loads/displays fine in Affinity Photo for Mac

Really?? I thought variable fonts were not yet supported by the Affinity apps! I’m looking forward to a fix for the Windows versions.

Thanks guys!

The files in the 7zip file haakoo suggested works fine for me. Thanks! But would indeed be great if it worked right out of the box. I dont know the technicalities, but if the coders could fixed that for future projects....

This will save me returning to PSP a lot all the time, making it harder to switch since I best dive totally in the new program to get used to it...

I don't know for sure if there was improvements here (support for variable fonts) but it identifies and lists the uploaded file font correctly on Mac for me.

You may have mistaken the forum.

As for Affinity Photo, it uses fonts from the OS, so just add/install it.
