  1. Affinity Designer v1.8.4 on macOS: I have noticed that when placing Adjustment Layer on top of other layers, bleed is not preserved when exported to PDF. You can see that in the attached example. Just export it to PDF with bleeds on. Thanks! Petr crop-issue.afdesign crop-issue.pdf
  2. In fact when the files are in the /cs_CZ subfolder, the spelling and hyphenation is not recognized by the macOS system in the Settings / Keyboard preferences (it should show "Čeština (Knihovna)" which means "Czech (Library)"). When I copy them directly to /Spelling directory, I can see the option in the Keyboard preferences: https://jmp.sh/ISAHs41 So now I stored the files in both /Spelling and /Spelling/cs_CZ directories and it works in both AP and macOS system. Thanks Petr
  3. Hello Gabe, Thanks for sharing the screen. Previously I stored the Czech dictionary and hyphenation files directly in the /Spelling directory. It worked fine before but after the AP update it stopped. When I tried to copy the files under the /cs_CZ subdirectory as it's shown in your video, it worked fine. Thanks a lot for your help, the issue is resolved now. Petr
  4. High Siera and Catalina, both with the same results.
  5. The dictionary is installed in /Users/{username}/Library/Spelling. But I can see the same files also in the /Users/{username}/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitypublisher/Data/Library/Spelling directory. I assume AP copied them there by itself: https://jmp.sh/AnGPTzx
  6. Hi Gabe, I tried to rename the folder to reset all the settings, but the hyphenation is still not available. When I look in the 'com.seriflabs.affinityPublisher.old' directory, I can see the hyphenation dictionary is listed there: https://jmp.sh/UJKldld. It is also listed in the newly created 'com.seriflabs.affinityPublisher' directory: https://jmp.sh/FsHtJxV Cheers, Petr
  7. Thanks Gabe, I am using MAS version. When I try to change hyphenation settings, It looks like this: https://jmp.sh/bbtXKtA Thanks! Petr
  8. Hello, After updating to 1.8.4 I am unable to select Czech hyphenation from the drop down. It is installed properly in the /Library/Spelling directory and worked fine before. I can use hyphenation in other applications such as Pages without any issues. If I open a document where the hyphenation was previously enabled, it's shown as unknown: https://jmp.sh/uKB9exw When I create a new document, the option is missing completely: https://jmp.sh/kjIXKWt You can get the spell check and hyphenation files for example from here. Thanks! Petr
  9. Hello, I have a question regarding the afpub file size. I tried to include a afdesign document into the afpub (set as linked in the File Manager), but after saving the afpub file is still huge. Is the linked file always saved with the document? Is there any way how to exclude linked files from saving and shrink the afpub file size? Thanks Petr
  10. Hello, just a suggestion for improvement. When I place an image to document with bleeds so it is overlapping artboard and then rasterise the image, it is cropped to the edges of the artboard. It would be better to rather crop the image to the edges of bleeds not to the artboard. It makes problems when exporting PDF with bleeds and the image is therefore cropped incorrectly. Thank you! Petr
  11. Yep, below are my Export settings: And here is the PDF Output Preview (no bleeds, no spot colours): Thanks Petr
  12. Hello, my client wants to print certain image in one spot colour only (no CMYK colours at all) and I would like to find a way how to do this in AD. I tried to create Gradient Map Adjustment layer and create simple gradient with spot colour on one side and white on the other. But when I export it to PDF, the spot colour is gone, only standard CMYK remains. Also I noticed that when I add on top of all layers an object with spot colour, it is converted to CMYK as well even if it sits on top of all layers and should remain as it is. Another odd thing I noticed when using Gradient Map Adjustment layer is that bleeds are for some reason ignored when exporting to PDF. Attached is a test file with all layers and also two exported PDFs. First one is exported when Gradient Map Adjustment layer is enabled: spot colour and bleeds are missing. The other one is with Gradient Map Adjustment layer disabled. Bleeds are there, also spot colour for the text on top of the image is there, but of course the image itself is not toned to spot colour gradient. As Gradient Map Adjustment layer does not seem to be an option, is there anything else I can try to achieve spot colour only output? Thank you for any suggestions Petr pantone-test.afdesign pantone-test-1.pdf pantone-test-2.pdf
  13. Hello, just a suggestion – it would be great to somehow indicate that the text overflows the text frame especially when the "eye" icon is enabled to hide the overflowing text. For example make the "eye" icon red when there is more text that is hidden. This can be useful as I don't need to double check if all lines fit into text frames. Thanks! Petr
