  1. I have an acceptable workaround now. Thanks.
  2. Affinity seemingly sends RGB-Data to printers even from a CMYK document. So all colors are converted just to sRGB and then to CMYK again. Everything becomes impure. Especially with colors within in the CMYK color space that aren't available within the small sRGB color space, this could get off. Can you/I make it a choice, what gets sent to the print dialogue: RGB or CMYK? When exporting a PDF/X1a and printing with Preview or Adobe Acrobat everything is OK. (Attached image shows the X1a-PDF from my printer which is very similar to a reference sheet (top) and the directly vie Publisher printed sheet from my printer (bottom) darker and less neutral)
  3. with open after export checked this seems like a reasonable solution since printing with preview works without a hassle

    Data merge

    It's called #ADOBYE
  5. it's a digital CMYK printing press - Xerox DocuColor 12 with Fiery XP12 RIP - quite old but very accurate in the ISOcoated v2 color space. It accepts every color space because I could load it on to the machine. converting the space is a loss though especially with everything besides photos. For example you don’t want 0 0 0 100 black 10 pt running text (body) to become e.g. 50 30 20 60. It gets rasterized and bold.
  6. 5 months ago on twitter https://twitter.com/artischock_linz/status/1068541662488682498
  7. Yes PLEASE! Erics fix doesn't work for me. This Bug is super annoying. I have to position all Studio-Items every time the bug occurs. Happens regularly in Designer and Photo. Still in 1.6.1
  8. Replicate aka Blend Tool /Command is on the Affinity Designer roadmap for more than four years. Holding it back for 2.0?

    Fonts auto activation if fonts auto activate while opening a document fonts aren't displayed correctly only reopening the document helps it seems to be better with Publisher already open and worse if opened through double clicking the document better: most or all fonts displayed correctly (2nd attached image) worse: no fonts displayed correctly (1st attached image) testfile shows fonts layer above layer with fonts converted to paths publisher fontexplorer x pro 5.5.1 os x 10.11.6 edit: maybe this is a timing issue? ... off topic – Designer doesn't auto activate at all.
  10. Had my first real life attempt with publisher today . Would have needed inline graphics.

    Let's be honest

    auto-hyphenation (edit +auto) table of contents page numbers external images facing pages tables initials linked text frames easier text wrapping baseline grids (edit) ... Things not in Designer but in Publisher. I am sure there is more. ( Just my first two cents to this montypythonesk discussion. )
  13. If I had to guess, I would say € 79 with a starting discount of 33 % which makes about € 53.
  14. Unlike Publisher Photo and Designer are already main tools in my daily work. I still check every pdf with Acrobat before sending it to the printing company though. (Publisher will complete the trio soon.)
  15. I was using InDesign since 1999 as a pro and not even once was in need of a commercial template. No need to force me. The independence of being able to open my own work without Adobe on the other side is important to me. So I never joined CC.

    I use InDesign CS6 until Affinity Publisher is out of Beta. With Parallels and I can use legacy software like Ai CS5 or even Freehand. Don't ask me about the speed of it. I just open old files. I'd guess since it's old software it should run reasonable fast.
  17. Wow. It crashes if I use any self assigned shortcut key. If I use the mouse to select the menu everything seems to be ok. (Edit: but isn't. Still random crashes)
  18. Today I had a lot of crashes when changing the ICC profile. I didn't experience such crashes in the past. I think all the files today had no embedded profile and got my eciRGBv2-workprofile assigned on opening. When changing that to sRGB via conversion or assigning – affinity photo crashed.
  19. So maybe its not the relative magnification alone but also the size of the magnified object test3.afdesign
  20. Greyscale become multicoloured when printing from Affinity Designer. Obviously a conversion to/from color profiles happens inside Designer. How can I prevent this from happening? (This happens to all colours. It is just shown best with greyscale.) My printer expects data in the same colour profile as my AD files working profile. (ISO coated v2 (eci)) When exporting a PDF/X1a and printing with Adobe Acrobat everything is OK.
