Working with text

There are several varieties of text available in Affinity Publisher, i.e. Artistic Text, Frame Text, Path Text and Shape Text, to give you absolute flexibility when working with typography.

Text types

Text objects contain both character and paragraph elements, making it easy to modify standard text attributes such as font, size, format, and alignment. All text types have quick access settings on the context toolbar and supporting panels and dialogs for more extensive, advanced options.

When performing text editing, Publisher supports all standard text selection and formatting techniques and shortcuts.

The unique features of artistic text, frame text and path text are discussed in the Artistic text, Frame text, Text on a path and Shape text topics.
