  1. Have very large collage with many layers, and some text on top. simple A4, but on export, every single layer and puts into the final PDF resulting extremly large PDF.
    i dont want to simply raster all on export, as i want to have some vector areas sharp over 300DPI (text, curves). Is there way to say "flattern all bitmap layers" on export? (dont want to flattern in editor, as i may want to edit it in future) 

    I know that it is somehow possible forexample in indesign - result was always very low on data, even with multiple layers. They somehow always used some parts of data that was visible.

    Another problem is, that if i use just part of the image, lets say crop large photo and use 10% of it, export will have whole photo, cropped to 10%. Or imagine A4 background photograph, and in foreground large product. In resulting PDF there is full background photo, even parts covered by product.

    I know that its possible always to make second file for export and ftattered, but.......

  2. Im experiencing often crashes, on large documents, in publisher and designer. Sometimes helps
    - re-open the files and before the document loads fully, open menu (!!!)
    - re-open the files and before the document loads fully, open menu and hit save as (!!!)
    - when publisher dies, it now does not offer any autosaved document, so everything is lost. (its possible i just did not find some settings for it ;) )

    sometimes its just crashing all the time and i have to restart and pray for no problems on clean start.

    - its in almost all versions since beta v 1.8.
    - Tryed to post here some example, but you were unable to see any problem, just with DPI, which did not solve it. 

    I would be very interested into solving the problem, because its my primary software now.

    - dont think its hardware related (faulty ram/ssd), as im using other, very komplex software for 2d/3d without any problems.

    - offering teamviewer access or running any other utility that may help. (dxdiag export, msinfo export, ...? )

  3. messed a bit with the "add pages from file" and File->Place and choosing publisher document. 

    Well its half-working for me. 

    use-case: have many manuals, with same parts. i need to update part, then re-export all the manuals without re-touching each one.
    now i have two possibilities - add pages, where i loose connection, or place the document, multiple times. That could work, if there is possibility to:

    - place single pages even when in spread layout (double pages are nonsense, as i dont know if first page will be left or right when placing the document)
    - if it would be possible to place with bleeds

    And what would also help is possibility to add multiple pages at once.. Its very annoying to place lets say 40 pages :)

    killer feature would be insert into document "as is" just as another section with automatic removing/adding pages on change

  4. problem is, i need to tailor manual from different versions of software (and therefore different manual versions) . So my idea of workflow is, that i will just have each version in separate file (talking about approx. 50 different files) and just pick the right versions together in some kind master document...

    Any idea how to do that?

    It seems like this should be possible, but it doesn't actually work.

    If I have one object selected then +=2mm successfully adds 2mm to the existing width.

    With multiple objects selected and Transform Objects Separately enabled +=2% works just fine.

    But +=2mm adds 2mm to the last selected object, but scales the others by a percentage (the ratio of the original size of the last selected object, to its new size).


    I suspect this is a bug or an oversight in the current implementation.

    Hi grapher,
    "Transform each" was already implemented in the latest Betas. - select multiple objects (Move Tool) click/enable the Transform Object Separately button in the context toolbar and edit/transform the highlighted object on canvas (the one with the bounding box/handles visible). All the other will equally transform in place.

    Is there way to insert relative / absolute value? like - add to all objects +2mm width, +2mm height, instead of % or absolute value ? 

  7. By the way, the bleed workaround - you have artboard 10x10, and want bleed +1 - make square ~12x12, centered, filled with 100% opacity. Then move everything from the artboard inside the square in the layers. So whole artwork will be cropped to 12x12. Then move the square in layers out of the artboard, out of ANY artboard, to the bottom of all layers. Then simply export the original artboard...  Tadaa artboard with bleed.


  8. +1,

    im crying blood here. Problems with Bleed... its otherwise so great software, why so childish problems, not solved months?

    everytime i have to scratch all artboards, and export one by one ..... very annoying.

    Another little glitch - Everytime using export to print PDF - its exporting unnecessary objects (like if you add  photograph in your artwork, crop it to 1/10, then you will have whole photo in the export, resoluting laaaaarge files.)  in few months back i saw exporting also hidden layers.... maybe its solved now, dont know.

    Hi grapher,

    Is this just an issue for you in the 1.7 betas? There is currently a known issue that objects on an artboard are being rasterised when exporting to PDF. If you remove the artboards and then export they will go out as vectors.

    This is currently being investigated by development.

    any ETA on this problem Sean? Its making the artboards unusable for print materials....
