Where is text arching options in Affinity Designer?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have tried alot to find out the text arching features like lower arching upper arching features in Affinity Designer as well as free transforming of texts but all in vain. Examples of which I have attached(taken from google). So far I have to use adobee illustrator to do these arching and transforming and take it back to affinity designer which is really time consuming. Is there this feature already or are you guys planning to release it anytime soon? Its a big let downbecause so important these features are

Well then have to turn to illustrator only for the time being because certain professional features are still missing big time in affinity like the one I mentioned and the shape builder tool(though it can be ignored). As it is mentioned in affinity website that "affinity got you covered..." not quite well sorry to say.

To be honest I would have thought that the warp tool would have been more appropriate in Designer than in Photo, although, ideally, it should be in both.

Exactly. Many a times, stylization of fonts using warp tools will be print specific so its kinda a let down not having it in Affinity Designer which is otherwise such a great app! Hoping they roll out this feature in near future.

I think a vector based warp (or perspective) tool would be quite appropriate for Designer; a raster based one like Affinity Photo has perhaps not so much.

I'm sure affinity will give us an envelope feature at some point.
