  1. Thanks a lot for this great program! Well done! Great Job! Keep going! Martin
  2. Hi Jon, Unfortunately you are right! I don't know why the error didn't occur after the update. I did several tests, all without error. Today I have it again. Strange! Ok, so I'm waiting again for a fix!
  3. Problem has been fixed in 312! Thanks a lot!
  4. Hi Jon, as I almost work with landscape, I didn't notice this at all. Strange! Thanks a lot!
  5. oups, nobody has this problem?
  6. Hi, I'm not sure if this problem is actually published. I stored a combination of Picture Frames as an asset: Everything is ok, when I ignore these assets or use these assets only on single pages and f.e. add additional pages to my document. And no difference between adding pages or duplicate pages. The problem starts when I place the "4-boxes-asset" to the master page, and then try to duplicate pages in my document. Affinity Publisher crashes immediately! I use Publisher Release 305. Best regards Martin AP-Crash.mp4
  7. Same here! This seems to be a bug.

    @Steps: Thanks, but the picture-size is not the main problem. I reduced the size drastically without a notable effect. My problem, or my question is about that unpredictable effect with the different compression rates. I have no explanation for that strange effect.

    Good evening! I have to put my enthusiasm from my last posting into some perspective. Today I did a few more test exports, which resulted in the following: 20 pages, pictures and text 1st document 16bit export quality 100% - 330MB 80% - 330MB 60% - 330MB Why doesn't the output size change with decreasing quality? 2nd document 8bit export quality 100% - 196MB EDIT 85% - 22MB - 80% - 196MB 60% - 22MB Ok, it is a bit strange that there is no difference between 100 and 80% in the output size. But at 60% it is a huge leap. And what about 85%? I can't explain all this, but with 16bit documents there seems to be something wrong. Or did I miss something? Is there an explanation? Thanks a lot! Martin

    I think I've got it. And I think that the Affinity Guys did a good job! Beta 206, 8 bit, PDF 1.7, 85% compression. Output PDF Size: 618MB! Thanks a lot, Guys! Good Job! Cheers Martin

    Hi @thomaso, now I run another test with my original document. 8bit, 60% compression, PDF 1.4 Result: 2.33GB. That's a good way, but never the less far away from <=1GB. HG Martin

    Hi Thomaso, wow, that's a great solution! I didn't recognised that point. Thanks a lot for your big effort! I will start testing as soon as my new mac is up and running! Stay tuned, I will report the results here! Thanks again, best regards Cheers Martin

    @thomaso: Thanks a lot! I can't upload an example because a document with only 10 pages is over 400MB in size. Even a two-page document already has 45MB, and I'll explain why. But I made further comparisons to Indesign, and now I suspect that I can't realize this kind of documents (more than 200 pages, more than 300 high-resolution images, output filesize maximum 1GB) with Affinity Publisher. The following statements and facts (Sorry, Affinity, if I constantly compare this with InDesign, but InDesign is the reference, and if I change, then I simply compare): 1) For years I have never, or only very rarely, taken care of the size of the images used in my work with InDesign. I have always left that to InDesign, and it has always worked very well. As an example my last photo book, 216 pages size A3, 300-400 pictures, high resolution. InDesign document: 150MB (linked images), output file size: 550MB. The used images have a size between 5 and 20MB per image. 2 In Affinity Publisher, it makes no difference in file size whether I embed or link images. The file size is always exactly the same! With InDesign I have even in a very large document (see above) a minimum file size, that is only the "skeleton", and so it should be. 3. It may be my fault that I have to drastically decrease image-size before processing them in Affinity Publisher. As I said before, this is something I never had to do with InDesign, and the results have been flawless so far. If I have to do that in the future, it would greatly affect my workflow. Furthermore I don't think that I could reduce the outpout file size so much that I would stay at an output file size of max 1GB with such a large photo book. I will now simply wait and see how the "final release" behaves. Then I will make dependent on it whether I can work with it for my requirements or not. Thank you for your support and the many tips and suggestions! Best regards Martin
