  1. There is no PDF pass through in Publisher so you have be very careful here. I would Open the PDF file in Publisher before you Place it. That will tell you if there are missing fonts. If there are no missing fonts I would probably not tick those 2 boxes when you come tp placing the file (assuming you don't want to change anything). It might be an idea to print out the PDF file to a postscript printer so you have a good idea of what it should look like. If there are missing fonts you would need to convert the fonts in the PDF to curves before you Place it. There are various software ways of doing this but I don't know of any free ones.
  2. Same thing here, also in ADesigner. If you use a keyboarde shortcut to change the font size of Artistic text you can see the start position move to the left as you reduce the size and move to the right as you increase the size. Maybe it's to do with the space before the glyph in the font metric. I wonder if previous versions also did this. For what it's worth I've just checked with CorelDraw 2017 and Artistic text also behaves like that.
  3. Hi pomme27 - sorry about confusion. Yes, Import and Place are the same thing. As you correctly say, Publisher cannot Import a file - it can only Place one. As regards your file, it Opens okay for me as a single text frame (apart from the page number at the bottom). Screenshot is attached. If you Place a PDF page and then double click it to edit it, then the frame IS broken up into individual lines. And if you Open a PDF without clicking "Group lines of text" you also get separate frames. But that isn't what you are doing so I don't understand this. Do you have this problem with other PDFs or just this one? As a temporary workaround you might want to ask one of the Moderators to convert the file for you.
  4. That's a brilliant thing to do. I think I'll download 20 copies in case they run out.
  5. It might be useful if you could save a page of your document and upload it for people to check.
  6. 2 things here 1) I assume you mean to open the PDF rather than import it. That way you will be notified of any missing fonts and be able to make substitutons. 2) to get the text into frames rather than separate lines you need to click the box "Group lines of text...." when you open the PDF file. I have found this works pretty well . You might get slight variations from the original text and text frames won't be linked but it will be much easier to work with.
  7. I can confirm Grafkom's observations. The Spread Setup/Dimensions padlock doesn't remember its setting. For what it's worth the Margin and Bleed equivalents do remember the locking status (the design is different).
  8. Hi Tetsujikenny - I don't think any Affinity software has auto save so I'd suggest saving every few minutes. I use a program called AJC Active Backup which automatically saves versions of your documents when you save it so if you get a corrupted file or you accidentally delete a file you still have something you can open.
  9. I want to take cat18 home (red & purple) but my 2 tabbies might not be too happy.
  10. Yes. So 2 A4s with a 10mm page in the middle could be exported as a single 430 x 297 with bleed PDF. I see the mistake with Master Pages - I had been unlinking the Master Page with the actual page whereas I needed to remove the Master Page completely.
  11. A few comments on this 1) The original Apub document appears to need to be created without a Master Page. Removing the Master page after one has been used in the document creation doesn't work (I get a message in ADesigner saying I can't add an Artboard). 2) In Designer you have to Press the Insert Artboard button in the Property bar before adding other Artboards 3) When going back to Publisher and exporting as a PDF with bleed, the bleed does show correctly in the exported PDF. (Exporting as JPEG does loose the bleed.) The pages will be exported as single pages. Page size can easily be changed to export as a composite if required. All in all it seems like a good system.
  12. Another problem with this file. I have flattened the image in Photoshop and relinked the image. It's better (I think) but now when I try to open the file the program immediately closes.
  13. A customer has supplied a Photoshop created PDF containing an image which was given a transparency within Photoshop. When I open the PDF in APub the image is still behaving as if it has a transparency applied. If I rasterise the image to turn it into a pixel layer the same transparency thing happens. I can see a red circle placed behind the image. The image has no opacity applied within APub. Is this expected behaviour and is there any way to remove the transparency of the image?
  14. This PDF looks okay to me. All the black text is showing as K=100 in Pitstop Pro.
