  1. @walt.farrell sorry for the delay to your response as well. Although I understand you point and I agree - I actually think it is much better to work with solid pixels and have zero decimal place. Obviously this counts for opening the document with that setting to make sure it is applied throughout that piece of work. I have had similar problems (you viewed that thread I made here too) where the export persona was creating the same problems as I am having here. But it was fixed by reducing my pixel decimal place to zero (I believe from) two decimal places. Like you say it is easy to get lost if the decimal places are large. I hope this makes sense. Thanks
  2. @GabrielM Thanks for the post and apologies for the delay. Two things is the PDF acrobat reader - please see this video that clearly highlights the issue and it is my opinion it has nothing to do with the PDF reader but affinity uploading it to the PDF as you will see in the video - https://www.useloom.com/share/b03e6cecd0e44af2b825ac8b1dad4410 Second is your video. Do you know why this is an issue and what is causing this? It seems to be very 'hacky' to have to do this every time I use affinity designer. In addition I genuinely think this is a bug or some settings I have that is screwing me around. Where would the best place be to post a bug query to finally get to the bottom of this? Ok I appreciate your help and time - thank you.
  3. @GabrielM Hi thanks for the response. I just opened an old project I did for a client and a similar issue is occurring. I would suggest this is a problem with the software. A bug has come in perhaps. This project I haven't touched for approx a year and never faced this problem. I have uploaded the project via PDF and white lines are appearing on the edges of all the pages - suggesting the clipping of the layers is off again. I have uploaded these files to your dropbox because again they are too large. I have to know what is going on or if I am doing something stupid. I can't continue using affinity with this issue - perhaps I should write a proper support ticket - what do you suggest? Thanks I am not sure what you mean by removing the clipping mask (in the previous example). I haven't used any clipping masks. Do you mean the watermark over the images layers? Thanks for your time.
  4. Hi @walt.farrell thanks for raising this point. It was a similar reason to why I had a problem with it before. Now though I believe it must be a bug or I have some hidden feature turned on. I mean the level the pixel persona is 'out' in creating slices is, at times, enormous. I have fixed pixel on, I have decimal place to 1 in settings. On the transform panel everything is a solid pixel (no decimal points). I have even done this for every single layer in an object.
  5. @GabrielM Can you clarify what you mean by closing it please?
  6. @neilbaldwin Very interesting observation. Thanks for the info. Thinking about my issue - it is certainly the case with mine because this problem arose with my third artboard that I created. The first two artboards did not seem to have a problem. One or two slices where out - but not a huge issue to fix. This current problem was occurring on every single slice and not just one side (but multiple sides of one slice could be out). Some pictures had 200-300px a blank white space added.
  7. @GabrielM Ok all the files have been uploaded now. Thank you for your help in advance.
  8. @GabrielM ok nice I have uploaded 3 images and the af file to your dropbox link. I made sure the images I used are the various formats I have used - PDF, jpeg and tiff. Each images represents one of those different files types. Thanks Ps Upload is taking some time.
  9. @gabrielM That file is 4.6GB big - I can't share it. Maybe I can make a few adjustments to make it smaller
  10. Do you want the affinity file or exported jpeg? @GabrielM
  11. Hi Please see attached here a video recording of the issue I have: https://www.useloom.com/share/35fb9535f400452982399cf2d78cd831 The issue I am having is the export persona is simply not creating the create layout alignment of the image - so when I export, the image has white lines on the sides. What if frustrating it is varies and can sometimes be 100s pixels off. I would really appreciate some help on this - thank you.

    How to install fonts from Mac to iPad

    Thanks @PMudditt and @Alfred for this. @PMudditt I did not notice that feature before. I am almost certain it did not exist. Admittedly it was a good 6 months or more before I last checked. I just remember I couldn't get anything to work for ages. Anyway that feature worked very well. I imported all my fonts relatively painlessly. I have not noticed a lag in performance which is great. @Alfred I tried setting up individual profiles and although it worked it was too painful to do for 400-500 fonts. At the moment I only need the fonts for affinity designer. But it is a nice idea and useful to know. Thanks for the help everyone.
  13. Hi, I have nearly 300 fonts on my Mac, which I would like to use on my iPad versions of the software (photo and affinity). Does anyone know how I can import all these fonts from Mac to iPad? That would be great help. Thanks. Ps I have tried using an app called all fonts from iPad. But I was not able to get it to work. Also to note my fonts are all contained within the font book folder as the default on the Mac.
  14. @v_kyr Hey I saw your other post with the same question. Thank you for your help. That certainly solves the problem and gives more flexibility.
  15. @v_kyr Thank you for your solution - I had no idea you could actually phyiscally add the values there (I thought the list was the predefined values). What a great revelation. Thank you so much. @>|< This solution was also brilliant. It turned out I did indeed have 144dpi selected and when I changed document to 72dpi it fixed the issue. THANK YOU. @walt.farrell Thank you as well for your help. I was on mac / affinity designer. The 1x, 2x, 3x is designed with the idea that you create an original image and then for the next x value it doubles the size of original image. In HTML you have the ability to do that same - add an x value to original image. In short it basically means if a device that has 3 or 4 times more pixels than a standard display you can give them a 3x or 4x image and it will display the same phyiscal dimensions, without being pixelated. So typical retina screen would be 2x. But some phones are 3x and even 4x. Forgive me if you already knew this info. Thank you everyone your help. Really appreciate it. This has been bugging me for months.
