  1. Hi, I'm creating a calendar with bleed and cannot work out how to set up a 13 page document (cover page plus 12 pages) as single pages. When I add extra pages, the app insists as setting them up as spreads. Any ideas? Cheers, Paul Zab
  2. Hi, Thanks for the suggestion and next I use Affinity Publisher, I'll try changing that preference in the Resource Manager. Having said that, I don't have any images in the document for now. I've had to recreate it in InDesign. Cheers, Paul Zab
  3. Hi, It keeps crashing for me as well. I have a 14 page document with master pages, text styles and linked text boxes. No images at this stage – just text and a few boxes. When I go to paste copied text or sometimes just hit the space bar – it crashes. It's crashed 5 times in less than 10 minutes. I have Affinity Publisher Beta 1.7.0.206 (just downloaded this latest beta update today) on a Mac Pro mid-2010 with mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6. Processor 2.8GHz Quad-core Intel Xeon with 10GB RAM. Cheers, Paul Zab
  4. Hi, I back this suggestion but I'm also glad the HSL filter/tool has changed to this colour picker wheel interface in this latest update. Cheers, Paul Zab
  5. Hi, I find this tool handy for fashion and portraiture work where I want to highlight the model. It saves me having to create a shape (no big deal anyway). In addition to the exposure, hardness, scale and shape functions within this filter, a rotation (in degrees) function would be handy also. Perhaps combined with the ability to rotate it 'by hand' with our mouse would also be good. And then to drag it's centre point around so we can position the vignette where we desire i.e. so it doesn't have to be anchored to the centre of the image. Cheers, Paul Zab | paulzabphoto
  6. Hi Miguel, Many thanks for your efforts. Rasterising eliminates the existing bleed so I have to re-introduce the bleed. But it does keep the effect produced by the lighting filter – thanks. I’m aware of converting text to curves but, as I come originally from a pre-press background, this is not always successful with type of a small point size. It seems to be working with my artwork in this case but it’s certainly not the preferred method. I hope the devs are putting these types of issues as very high priority for the sake of credibility of the software. I’m very happy with Affinity Photo and Designer as all the stuff I have produced so far has been for web but this project and some upcoming ones I have will be going to an offset printer. Also looking forward to Affinity Publisher in its beta form. Cheers and thanks again, Paul Zab | www.paulzabphoto.com
  7. Hi MEB & Wosven, I have uploaded the files to the link suggested by MEB – many thanks. Because the file is going to an offset printer, the file is set up in CMYK with the Coated FOGRA 39 profile. That’s why, in the PDF export settings, the nominated colour space is “As document”. Perhaps the lighting filter doesn’t work in CMYK when exported to PDF? I don’t want to rasterise everything because that means the type will be rasterised and that should remain vector – for best quality. I have chosen to embed all fonts in the PDF settings. I appreciate your help with this issue. Cheers, Paul Zab
  8. As you can see, the lighting effects filter has not worked and the fonts haven't either. Cheers, Paul Zab
  9. Hi, It's still not working, so I've attached screenshots of: • what it's supposed to look like with the lighting filter; • what it looks like after exporting to PDF; & • the PDF settings used. Cheers & thanks, Paul Zab
  10. Hi, Thanks for those last couple of suggestions. I will check my Export/PDF settings and try again. If it still doesn't work, I'll put the file up.
  11. Anyone got any further clues re. my other question above: I just made a CMYK high resolution PDF of this file and the lighting filter/gradient effect is gone i.e. it's just as if I created a solid rectangle. The effect of the lighting filter has been eliminated after making a press-ready CMYK high resolution PDF. Cheers, Paul
  12. Thanks, Wosven. Cheers, Paul Zab
  13. Thanks Chris_K, carl123 and Wosven for your replies. I just made a CMYK high resolution PDF of this file and the lighting filter/gradient effect is gone i.e. it's just as if I created a solid rectangle. Is that also because of going to 8-bit? Any ideas? Cheers, Paul
  14. Hi Guys, Thanks for your replies. Yes carl123, the banding circles appear in the blue area. Having a look at the uploaded screen shot of the image on the forum here, I can see the effect slightly. No doubt at high resolution and in print, I'm fairly certain this problem will be even more pronounced. I'll experiment with a few options. If I have any success, I'll post my solutions here. Cheers & thanks, Paul www.paulzabphoto.com
