  1. Have be struggling with the same problem right now. Maybe my solution works for you as well: For me, the problem lays in setting the stroke different then "Align stroke to center" before applying "Expand stroke". Just switching it back and resizing the shapes to match the targeted stroke solved this issue.
  2. Thanks for your reply guys. Offering the StudioLink I hoped to avoid CMYK conversion and Adjustment Layer changes on the reference picture before importing it into Publisher... As you said: > The PDF exporting process is first converting the RGB document to CMYK and then compositing and exporting. For comparison of the different export routes I also tried to export the same document to JPG considering the conversion into sRGB and CMYK. The results are much more similar than the PDF export. It seems, that in the case of JPG export, Publisher applies the Adjustment Layers onto the RGB picture before converting into CMYK. In case of PDF export the RGB picture is converted into CMYK first, and afterwards applying the Adjustment Layers. In contrast the preview and softproof inside of Publisher always considers the layers from bottom to top and in my case adds the CMYK softproof conversion at the end. So wouldn‘t it make sense to apply the same processing route for all export formats and the preview inside of Affinity Publisher?
  3. Hi @Gabe, Thank you for taking the time to discuss this issue. I attached the afpub file that cause the described behavior. PDFexport_color_debug.afpub
  4. Hi guys, I'm currently having strange color shifts when exporting from Affinity Publisher into PDF. The color of the imported RGB .jpg image is strongly shifted close to grayscale when the document is being exported, even if the used gradiation curve layer (for matching the target color space) is only slightly affecting the overall colors of the image. When exporting the pages as .jpg with CMYK format this color shift is not visible. For better understand of the effect, I attached three images: 1st image: screenshot of page within Affinity Publisher without softproof 2nd image: screenshot of page within Affinity Publisher with softproof 3rd image: screenshot of the exported pdf opened in Acrobat Reader DC (but I get the same behavior also in other PDF readers and even when reopening the pdf in Publisher) I'm exporting into ISO coated v2 300% (ECI) color space. In publisher I'm using the corresponding preflight for softproof and disabling the softproof layer before export. The behavior seems not to be dependent on the selected PDF compatibly version (I'm using PDF/X-3:2003). I'm using Publisher 1.8.4 under Catalina 10.15.7. Many thanks for your help!
