Using Affinity Publisher with Scanahand to produce a font

Post by William »

Some readers might like to read of my experiment in using the Affinity Publisher program to produce artwork for processing using Scanahand.

Brilliant! :-) I use Affinity Designer and Scanahand ...and FontCreator!

I insert Scanahand templates in Affinity Designer as artboards, so it's easy to get an overview and draw/edit all the characters in the same document (without needing to flip pages). Then exporting artboards as png files. Importing to Scanahand. And finally finishing the font in FontCreator.

Hi

I have just noticed the previous post in this thread.

I do not use Affinity Designer myself and do not know the answer to your question.

However, I have made a mention of your question in the following thread in the Affinity forum.

Hopefully someone will answer.

Best regards,

William
