  1. I wonder if there is some transparency in your document. I have a Versacamm VP540 (with severe problems) and have noticed that Versaworks will not see CutContour items if there are any transparent elements in the file. Exporting to PDF X1 or X3 flattens it so the transparency is removed. You might want to look at this post https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/136976-pdfx-3-export-vs-transparency/
  2. If I create a Cyan box and export as a JPEG, I can paste that JPEG into a CMYK document and use "K only" succesfully. I agree that there might be better ways of doing this but I still don't know why it doesn't work with the original file I uploaded.
  3. I'm just wondering if that is because there is no K component. I thought "K only" meant converted to a greyscale but maybe it just picks out the K component.
  4. I have a coloured image which goes white when "K only" is pressed. The image is attached. The image was found on a website and tweaked in Photoshop. Converting to a JPG makes no difference. Untitled.tif
  5. It might be worth removing all the content and then uploading the file here.
  6. I think this has to do with the DPI setting in the Document Setup. If you make sure this value is 300 I think the problem will go away. On the other hand if you choose a rediculously low DPI value you can export PDFs whose page sizes turn out to be a lot higher than the Publisher page size. I have a feeling that at a deep level all Affinity products use pixels for measuring and using a low DPI value can feed back into slight (or no so slight) measurement errors.
  7. Hi Arun - that's strange. I am doing exactly the same as you and the new page sizes are correct using the Pages panel to create the new page. I'd make a video but I don't know how. I wonder if anyone else has this problem. Maybe it's a Windows 8 issue but that seems very unlikely.
  8. That's not hapenning for me using 1.9.1 Windows 10. Right clicking in Page Panel gives correct page size after changing Page Size from Spread Setup. Is this anything to do with Facing Pages?
  9. This problem has always been in Publisher and still is in 1.91. Create an A4 page in a new document. Use Document Setup to change the dpi to 72. Use Spread set up and choose A4 from the drop down menu. The page sizes changes to 875 x 1237.5. If I type in 210 x 297 the page size goes correctly to 210 x 297. It looks like if I select from the drop down list then the new page size uses the DPI setting as part of its calculation.
  10. Sometimes the size stays correct, sometimes not. This is a regression from 1.9 where it seems to work as it should.
  11. I create a new A4 document using "Prefer embedded". I place an A4 PDF file. The default is Passthrough and the image preview is usually the wrong size. I click Interpret and the size is now correct. I click Passthrough and the size stays correct. It is just the Initial placement whose preview is wrong. Apologies if this has already been reported.
  12. Signage printing seems to vary from 72 to 150ppi. You need to ask whoever will be doing the final print.
  13. You're welcome. I'd recently asked if text variables could be used and your question made me dig a little deeper and come up with a usable workaround. I just wish Serif would produce a proper in-depth user guide.
  14. @larrystuartjrI'm pretty sure this can be done. I've attached a spreadsheet file and an afpub file. The afPub file contains a screenshot of the Data Merge Manager dialogue box settings used. The spreadsheet links into the pub file and any one row is selectable and the new content will flow through the document. Although text variables aren't directly supported, this way of doing it seems to be a good workaround. I think you have to be a bit careful with spreadsheet column headings - short & simple is best. Let me know if this is what you want or not. untitled.afpub Book1.xlsx
