Some applications, like the Adobe and QuarkXPress applications require a plug-in for auto-activation to work, but the Affinity applications (Publisher, Designer, and Photo) do not require a plug-in, but it does require you to change a setting in the FontAgent preferences.

To make auto-activation work in the Affinity applications, do the following:

  1. Quit all Affinity applications.
  2. Open FontAgent.
  3. Open the FontAgent Preferences.
  4. Select the Activator tab.
  5. De-select the checkbox labeled "Only for Adobe and Quark applications".
  6. (optional but recommended) Restart your computer.
