  1. Hi guys, I've got another bug - I guess. Two pages within one file - exactly the same. Only on the second one the background picture layer has opacity lowered to 15%. First page has 2.27MB on PDF Export and the second page has 21.92MB !!! Same settings on export, of course. Once I leave the background picture as it is and create a white layer on top of it and lower its opacity to 85% to get the same result, the exported file goes down to 2.24MB. How can one layer's opacity affect the size on export this much I have no idea...
  2. I got nearly the same result with compression set to 95%. ID does not seem to use percentage but with JPEG compression set to Maximum Quality, the resulting size is still 99MB. I got same result with all the images converted to JPEG, too. Well I guess I'm done with PDF/X-1a:2003 then.
  3. I'm back to the same problem. I guess I will never understand Color Profiles & Spaces. Just created a file with 7 pages - the size is 700x500mm, intended as wall presentation. I've made sure that all the images are linked and manually converted all of them to RGB/8 as some of them were RGB/16. Yet, when I tried to export as usual for print with my regular settings - see screenshots - I'm getting 350MB file. I couldn't find a way to find out so I had to create the same file in InDesign and with exactly the same settings I got 99MB file. When I tried to export page by page I got 55MB file for the first page in Publisher and 16MB for the same page in ID. It seems that Publisher forces the command 'Convert Image Colour Spaces' anytime I select PDF/X-1a:2003 - could this be a problem?
  4. Hi, I'm using version 1.8.3. Strangely I haven't encounter this behaviour since the last time. Well, maybe it was a one time thing tied to the particular file?
  5. Do you know if this is in the works? I find it already very annoying. I just opened the photo in AP - btw it took me good ten minutes to find it in Finder - and when I wanted to export it I had to find the original folder again in AP. Why am I presented with the last folder used for export in AP when this new image has got nothing to do with the previously edited one. I don't get it.
  6. I didn't have Pages panel docked because with most of the documents I worked on I only used it time to time. And since working on the laptop I need that extra space all the time. I guess I'll have it docked from now on then. My point however was that it's weird that the panel is above one contextual menu and below another menu. At least the behaviour should be consistent. And apparently it can be shown above the menu - this should be normal behaviour. Even when collapsed it is still above the font menu - looks really cool. :-)))
  7. Hi guys, I think this is a bug - I have a floating Studio Tool - Pages - and when I try to change the text font it is hidden behind this floating tool. However - when I go to font weight, it overlaps the tool window. Which I believe is the right behaviour. Because as of now I need to move the Pages window to the side every single time to see available fonts. Not good. See screenshots. Cheers! David
  8. Except that it doesn't work every time. Not even within the same document...
  9. Sir, you are my hero. Thank you! If you have any more of these tricks, send them over! :-)))
  10. How exactly can one save the default settings for different tools? I for example pretty much always use command Scale to Max Fit. Right next to Properties in Context Toolbar is the icon for Size Picture Frame to Content. Why don't we have other shortcuts? We definitely need those.
  11. Hi, Does anybody know if this is in the works? To me it's a major problem when working on bigger files - it actually seems that the bigger the file is the smaller is the gap between pages. Check the screenshots - the first one is from the project with 5 pages size A5 and the other one has 3 pages for the billboard size - 9x3m. It is impossible to see the top and bottom edges of these pages unless you zoom in to 100%. But with a file like once you fit it on screen, there are no visible gaps at all. The gap between pages should be based on percentage depending on the file size. But it seems the gap has the same default size all the time, no matter what.
  12. Hi guys, I have a 8-page document and when I want to save just one page, I export this particular page, change the file's name and save. And Publisher saves it with the extension _1 added to the file's name. Every single time. It even happens, when I'm replacing the file with the same name - it asks me if I want to replace the previous file in the folder, I click on yes but the files isn't replaced. Instead a new one with _1 is created. So I have to delete the original file first and then rename the new one. Not cool. Any idea where's the problem? Thanks. David
  13. Hi guys, I'm having a big problem with exporting files that include BMP images. The output size of this file is 809 x 622px. There are 3 bitmap images inserted into this files. The largest one has original size 1920 x 1080. When exporting to PNG the text within the BMP images get distorted - top of the letters are missing, it just looks strange. Check the files - the finished one is from Publisher and the other one which I just created was exported as PNG from InDesign. It looks much better. Still not exactly readable as client wants but it probably won't be possible in this size anyway. However - it is more readable than the Publisher file. I've got better results when creating files twice the size, exporting at 1618 x 1244 and then resampling in AP to the smaller size. For some reason client cannot use these larger (perfectly readable) files for web. They just need the small ones. What gives?
