Is it possible to import a PDF to Affinity Publisher and convert text to curves ? So if there are fonts included in the PDF not available on my PC they won't be substituted to other fonts but remain looking the same as they were but as uneditable curves ?

Thanks

No.

You have to use other software to convert text and import that resulting file to Publisher.

Adobe Acrobat can naturally handle this.

Apple Preview can print to postscript and converts text to outlines in the process; Publisher cannot place it but it can open it (go figure what is the difference.... you can also and of course also edit that .ps in Designer if you like).

I have heard free app Inkscape can also vectorise fonts in PDF when opened.
