  1. You're quite right, you can see Step into Freedom - the previous version I exported didn't have it, and I did nothing to change it in between, so you can understand my confusion! I've tried moving the exposure adjustment down into the image layer (not sure why it wasn't there in the first place as I applied it via selecting the image) but I'm still getting a bit of a line down the left hand side, although much improved. Thanks ACACIA_A4_poster_v9.pdf
  2. Step into Freedom box is missing. Border is not clear as such, sorry, it's that you can see the border of the background image without a haze over it. It's like I'd drawn a white transparent box over most of the page, leaving a little border round the edge. I'm viewing in Acrobat Reader.
  3. I thought I had posted this yesterday but it seems to have disappeared so forgive me if this is a duplicate. I have had an issue with exporting an A4 document to PDF/X1a:2003 - if you look at the attachments you will see that there is a box missing in the PDF version, and there is also some kind of hazy filter over most of the background image with a clear border round the edge. Can anyone offer any advice about why this might be happening please? (Ignore the fact that the AF file is saved as v3 and the PDF is v6, I've lost track of my version control!)ACACIA A4 poster v6.pdfACACIA_A4_poster_v3.afpub
  4. Very grateful for your help, I had totally managed to miss the text frame panel too! All fixed now
  5. I am having problems changing the fill colour of a shape text box (the grey trapezoid in the picture below). I have clicked on the box itself and the text isn't highlighted, but whatever I do, it is the text fill which changes, rather than the text BOX fill.
  6. I think Microsoft Office may be causing the problem. The exported images still look blurry on my screen viewed in Microsoft Photo at 100% or smaller and blurry if I insert images into MS Publisher. Really not sure how to correct this one!
  7. Thanks both for your help. I've tried combining a triangle and a rectangle which succeeds in terms of getting the text the right way up. However, further down the text box it is snapping the text to the edge of the rectangle (see pic below). Drawing the rectangle over the trapeze then performing the Boolean intersection worked though.
  8. I want to create a text box from a flipped trapezoid (so the wider edge of the trapezoid is at the top of the shape) and add text. However, if I flip the shape vertically to achieve this then add text, the text remains upside down.
  9. Interestingly these uploads look fine! But it doesn't look fine when I open in Microsoft programs - Photos or MS Publisher. Here's a screen print.
  10. I am having problems with exporting a logo from Publisher - the text in particular is blurry - and the last time I exported I got a problem with a flattening off of one of the letters (second C in the word ACACIA). I have read through the advice given to others with similar problems but not managed to resolve it. I've tried JPG and PNG exports with just about every setting possible, and still running into problems. I have more need for the PNG version but do also need a useable JPG. I am not especially experienced with publishing software so I would really appreciate advice aimed at beginner level! Acacia Final_editable text curves.afpub
