  1. Hi, Sorry my late response... I will do that later… or replicate it in another file. About your off topic request: I'm using an old version of skitch, which is now part of Evernote, but still available I guess… https://evernote.com/intl/en/products/skitch
  2. Hi, I order to present some design project exported in pdf for customers, I generally import/link some selected artboard from various Designer files into Publisher (i'm doing that a lot with the late CS suite). This way any modifications during the projet process is updated accordingly. Not sure if such isssue has been mention. However I had to redo this procedure a lot because links in publisher did not work as expected and had al lot of troubles to update them when designer files were modified. They did not update all the times, specially when you change document more than once. I should mention that the page where I import such artboards are mainly empty image bloc on one master page and text bloc on another master page, applied both to all page of the documents. Steps to reproduce the issue, see attached png to illustrate the layer panel (blurred for NDA): Mac osx 10.13.6 / MacPro 3,1 / Publisher 1.8.4 Importing a specific (or multiple) artboard from designer into a publisher file, with master page A and B are applied to the page — OK in Designer, updating the project (ex. changing a simple line of text) — OK Reopening the Publisher file and get the alert from Ressource Manager — OK / The layer panel show the same state — OK Using the Ressource Manager, I clic on update the link — ISSUE The update seems to work but look likes it transform the link into an embedded image, then unable to update or reimport the designer link, worse, it look likes the publisher document gets corrupted, specially when you have multiple page with multiple art board imported from various designer document. Alternatively I tried to drag and drop again the same designer artboard from the finder to the same page/frame and it does not replace it, it duplicate the layer and embed it , the other one cannot be embedded, and the the publisher file gets somehow corrupted as I cannot delete this new embedded layer and the linked is not updated Quite annoying, because then I had to recreate the page every time I updated the designer file during this process... Thank's in advance for your feedback
  3. OK good. I tried the View > Studio > Reset Studio… no success. I'll check later if this same issue append on my New Mac under Mojave as well or not. Best !
  4. That said, I've noticed this issue is sometimes there… sometimes not… curiously when I switch back from/to another app I can ctrl-clic correctly on this panel, so it's not consistent.
  5. Hi, maybe i was not clear enough… it' not about renaming any channel on this panel, it's about having the contextual menu behaving correctly. On the layer panel I can Ctrl-Click anyehere on the layer and I see the menu popping up, but on the Channel Panel, it does not seem to behave as it should (On the video you clearly see the user clicking one of the thumbnail of the the spare channel and the menu is popping-up… i cannot do that, the menu does not appear unless i click on the very right border of the panel...
  6. Hi, when I try to select a Spare Channel (or any other channels) with "Ctrl-Clic" from the View > Studio > Channels Panel, the contextual menu does not appear (nothing append), It only appears if you clic on the very-very right part of the panel... When watching this tutorial, this issue does not appear there https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/334283412/ (Btw Contextual menu on layer panel are fine) Looks like a UI issue ? Nice w-e to everyone ! Mac OSX 10.13 / Affinity Photo 1.8.4 / Mac Pro 3.1
  7. Hello, You do not indicate the type of pdf you exporting with from indesign, the behavior might be different depending the standard you are using. If you export from indesign as a PDF/X4:2010 standard (which is the standard I generally use for production), I confirm those same thin lines issue when importing. however, if you export from indesign as a PDF/X3:2003 standard, those lines disappear in Affinity Designer (while you can still see them appearing while zooming after import). I believe this is because PDF/X3 flatten all transparency, so it might be a solution to export from indesign in PDF/X3 until this issue is fixed. Maybe some users can confirm — or not — this workaround... Best, Eric PS: Attached two different pdf from indesign CS6 (MacOX 10.11 / Designer 1.8.3) export_test_pdfX3.pdf export_test_pdfX4.pdf
  8. Hi, just to comment effectively my (very) old mac pro tooks 100% processor power and still could not export it after 12 min… I tried to delete the "background group containing the image layer" and it was much better, there is something in that group that causing the issue (not the image itself). But sorry the main reason of my comment is I am curious why still using .eps when .pdf has much more to offer ? I do not use that format since around year 2000... Best to all.
  9. Hello, I'm wondering if this option improvement will be available ? I am also finding very annoying that this bleed area is hidden when using artboards (using 1.8.3 on osx) Best to all of you !
  10. @JET_Affinity Yes this muscle memory has became lazy and need much more pratice for me… the trick is Affinity softwares seems so similar and familiar from the one we used and continue to work with but indeed are different... All the best!
  11. Thanks, obviously looks like a font issue with AfPub with the export option: 1. the "convert text to curve" on export function is nice and fast and did the trick for export. 2. I also tried to convert text to curve manually as well for all embedded af.designer file: it works too… even if this is not really a viable option at the end. 3. I finally find out where this "export error..." came from: just a single reference line of text using an "old" Eurostile PS font in AfPub. It was not coming from any of the specific font inside AfDesigner embedded files... sic! I've changed the font and it worked without error ! 4. However for printing: even if the print dialog box seems much more stable when I print from the file without the problematic font. AfPub has crashed inconsistently (not always then) when: I switch from one printer to another or... if i switch between some some the print settings (page size, specific settings, etc.) Anyway this is already a good fix for now !
  12. O Great that's what i was looking for, perfect! I have to learn the UI first I guess… It's not that obvious as we always refer ourselves to the tools (and habits) we know... Thank you !
  13. ok thanks for the update… yes I still use a lof of "old PS fonts" but not sure in this case... I will check this.
  14. I'm using the latest 1.7.3… with OSX 10.11.6 (Mac Pro 3,1 configuration) and worse I even cannot export as pdf as well… instant crash upon printing or error on export… Finally, I 've just tried this same file on a new configuration with OSX 10.14.6 (iMacPro 1,1 not yet set ready for production), and no error at all. With this system I can print and export on pdf. Any idea how I can debug this on OSX 10.11.6 ?
