Affinity Designer compatibility! :)

Affinity Designer is an alternative to Adobe Illustrator, currently costing less than 2 months of Illustrator “rent”. I’d love to see the auto features available for AI also applied to AD. This would make the subscription to Fontbase much more enticing for myself and other users that have passed on Adobe products.

We really want this too! But, the problem here is that Affinity does not support plugins. We need the ability to implement plugins to detect what fonts are missing in the document. We already have contacted Affinity several times asking for help in this matter, but received no response :frowning:

Bittersweet news! I’m bummed that Affinity hasn’t been very helpful, but I’m also happy to hear that you’ve already been thinking in that direction. Thanks for being transparent about everything! :slight_smile:

This is a shame. Really want to use Affinity Photo instead of Photoshop but I cannot quit and relaunch the app each time I need to add a new font (and only be able to add the font through Font Book).

Affinity Photo supports photoshop plugins and will also be able to “see” a freshly activated font without restarting the program. I just now double checked it

It could be only Mac thing, but Typeface app supports auto activation for most popular apps without a plugin…
So the auto activation for Affinity in Mac version maybe possible.
