  1. @MEB I just had a brochure printed and it is badly printed because of a seemingly similar issue. File has a jpg blurred in background. Export to tiff works, but exporting to pdf lost the background image which I did not notice... this has to be looked at as I lost money on this order... ulotka a4 Sużyw-test.tiff ulotka a4 Sużyw-test.pdf ulotka_a4_Sużyw-test.afdesign
  2. @MEB I will keep an eye on this but if the behaviour is unified so it works like in export dialog it will just work and looking forward to this in the end result having any shifts < 1px if there is bleed are much less problematic than the white borders. Or rounding down as you said would also fix it I think and maybe it would be simpler to apply.
  3. @dominik and @Alfred I am sorry but what I meant is whether is there a way to scale artboard by providing dimensions but so it scales text frames proportionally as if dragged with the external artboard handle?
  4. You are correct Though I am 100% positive I did click that artboard and the numbers were even - not sure what happened. Still it is not correct that it is clipped fine when using export dialog and wrong when using export persona... it is still a bug in my opinion and it should work well
  5. This is an issue I was struggling for long now (good few months or even a year) but finally have enough experience to report it properly. This issue is in export persona and not the export dialog with artboard selected. The issue usually applies to artboards other than first. Despite artboards having a lot of bleed inside to cover border pixels for sure they clip exported JPG/PNG imprecisely adding white (semi)transparent pixel on edges. Artboard doesn't have colour set. On exported PNGs the pixels are transparent. I suspected that arboard has x and y coordinates set at .3 .or 7px for example instead of full numbers but moving artboard to round numbers did not correct it. Also the dimensions of the artboard are round pixels. Attached is the file where #3 and #2 are exported this way. test.afdesign
  6. Brilliant! Thank you! Is there a trick to scale artboard from A4 to A5 for example by providing size? Is there an option for that in transform toolbox or somewhere else?
  7. Especially when artboard is scaled but other than that as well - maybe Alt+scale or a trigger similar to Lock children? This is very needed feature as we're struggling with this since beginning and for some reason it still is not solved. Please, please, please!
  8. Hi, When exporting to PDF in both offset or web settings the document has entirely wrong look - background image instead of adding burn looks very dark. Designer 1.6.1 on Mac (Windows version does the same) source.afdesign export-offset.pdf source-web-default-export.pdf
  9. Sending the file - it opens, opens, opens and never actually opens. mac shows file preview but Affinity (both Designer and Photo on mac and Designer on Windows as well, either from NAS or local files) mobil 485 x245cm.ai
  10. This request is from 2 users - we daily struggle with export dialog window not remembering that we had selection with, selection without or else selected and when I need to export few elements from one document I have to repeat this every time...
  11. Thanks - it looks like this beta solved it (as far as I tested) so looking forward to appstore release and then I will test it thoroughly.
  12. This happened few times already over last ~1-2 weeks - when I open few images (either from NAS or from downloaded files or for example from screengrabs saved on desktop). Loading x documents is in Photo's title bar and it never loads. Files are few megs and on an SSD and it was instantaneous usually. Force quitting and relaunching app doesn't help. Only opening each of the files individually works. The activity monitor shows ~300% of 400% max usage and app doesn't do anything. I have attached screengrab and also sample of the app - hope this helps. Sample of Affinity Photo.txt.zip
  13. Thanks carl123 for the tip- will use it but still it is a bug and crashes affinity and I think the aim is to fix all possible bugs crashing the app so it should be solved either way
  14. Chris I tested latest beta on mac and this still remains there Also you can add to the list that if crop is part of macro which will then change other things and flood selects etc it creates completely wrong images... like it does crop but then uses full image for calculations but in fact the image is now smaller. It is less urgent as if i make one macro for crop and then second for other things and then just add two actions to batch it works ok but still - maybe for later fixing. PS. We love you
  15. I discovered intriguing issue! I made 700 images like the one attached and wanted to make a macro to cut them out of the background. I noticed the selection brush and flood select did not work as they seem to take into account only luminosity and not all channels... I realise in most cases this is ok but in this case it should be selecting the black "hand" part and not the green rim while it selects it whole... it must be same value just different hue and this is why it is being selected? I think a tick in these two tools similar to Edge aware that would say Color aware would be needed. I realise it may be slower but in some cases it just won't work. And I have spent few hours yesterday trying to figure out how to create macro that would isolate glove itself... I will probably end up making images again with something red covering the hand but this issue still remains and there should be an option or this.
