  1. I just found the solution for my problem – there was one image that had 356DPI resolution, so I guess that was the reason why Affinity estimated DPI incorrectly. I changed the export settings, so that it downsamples all the images above 350DPI to 300DPI and that fixed the problem – when I opened the exported .pdf file, Affinity correctly showed that DPI is 300 Thanks everyone for the answers and offers to check out the file! Have a great & safe weekend!
  2. Yes, there are 112 pages in my exported file – I opened the exported .pdf file in Affinity Designer, and it places all the pages as artboards in grid formation, so that is why it has pretty large dimensions. It looks like it just estimates the DPI incorrectly – when I open the file, the default setting in the import screen for DPI is set to Estimate, if I just click Open, it opens the document in 400 DPI, the images are still 300DPI, though, it just shows that they are 133% scaled to fit the 400DPI file. If I, set the DPI setting in the import screen to 300 DPI, then it unsurprisingly opens it as 300 DPI document (images are also 300DPI at 100% scale), so I guess everything should be fine for the print company? However, I find it weird, that it estimates the DPI incorrectly... Isn't the DPI "baked" in the file somehow?
  3. I am working on Affinity Publisher document, that consists of text on top of the images (300 DPI). I need to export it as 300 DPI, but it looks like, that it exports as 400 DPI. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? Maybe it doesn't even matter that it is larger than 300 DPI, even though the print company is asking for 300 DPI file? I am on macOS 11.1, Affinity Publisher 1.8.6 (But I also tried out the latest Beta with the same results) Thanks in advance! Here are screenshots with document & spread setup and export settings: And here is the Document Settings for the exported file - it shows that it is 400 DPI.
  4. Actually I had the same problem, that you can't go back from Export Persona to other Personas, but now it works as it should! I have to admit, that I don't remember on which OS X version I had this issue, so probably, when I did clean install of El Capitan and installed all software again this bug disappeared, so I guess you can try to reinstall Affinity Designer or reset it as @MEB said.
  5. Sent you a Private Message with the download link. Thanks!
  6. I was just doing some basic UI design (moving vector and text layers around and resizing them) on Affinity Designer latest Mac AppStore release and heard that fans are going quite fast, so I opened Activity Monitor and saw that Affinity Designer was using like over 100% of CPU: Not sure if this is bug or not, but I guess it's not normal to have this huge CPU usage during simple tasks. P.S. I'm using Retina Macbook Pro 13" Mid-2014. Maybe it has something to do with the fact I have few rasterized pictures used in file, because I have seen that using Pixel tools in AD heats my Mac quite a bit, but at that moment when fans went wild I wasn't doing anything with those rasterized layers. Thanks! :)
  7. Thanks! :) Glad to hear, that those features are coming in future versions! :)
  8. Hey! I came across problem - I can't find where I can change grid size, for example, I want small grid units per 4px and big grid units per 20px (right now it is 20px for small ones & 100px for big ones) Also is it possible to change grid color - I'm working on light gray background and it's quite hard to see the grid. Thanks! :)
  9. +, that's really useful! :) Also let's don't forget about Android phones :D
  10. Heh, I guess gold element is the most known element :D Don't have any invites so I can't draft anyone.
  11. Here's my account - nothing much, but I guess I should start posting something new soon :) https://dribbble.com/D-Art
  12. I was just playing around in Affinity, but I'm quite happy with the result :) Feedback is welcome :)
  13. Thanks! :) Affinity is incredible software, can't wait for update with bug-fixes :)
  14. Thanks for answer, but that didn't resolve problem :( For example, if I make document in 256x256px and check Retina checkbox, it makes document that's 512x512px, but shows up like it would be 1024x1024px large document. I think that it may be a bug, because when I open a picture at 100% it shows up pixelated: How the image should look at 100% (256x256px): How it looks at 100% in Affinity(cropped from screenshot): I think the Affinity isn't completely optimised for Retina displays, so it just scales up the document 2 times.
