  1. I am getting these errors and the documents are rasterized. I'm trying to figure out what PDF is supported to not be rasterized. Is there anywhere that gives a listing? I cna't find one on the help or the Affinity site. I would prefer the vector to passthrough and not be rasterized but I cannot find a version that works with Publisher. thanks!
  2. I see the same thing and I'm not quite sure why. I believe before 1.9 it did do as you describe - vector type, drop shadow as raster underneath.
  3. I tested the tiff export and I'm seeing the same thing as nodeus. Export or slices do not export bleeds in Designer. Export PDF has bleeds fine even with turning off JPG so it uses tiff.
  4. Dan explained the problem and solution quite well: If you have Photoshop then I would think you would also have access to Acrobat DC. The tool is called output preview, and if you are designing for print, this is something you need to know and use. It could also be exporting as CMYK but your document is in RGB. I wish you well on getting this solved on your end.
  5. There is the preview that's available and you don't have to open anything. On the Mac you just press spacebar while in Finder. Not sure on Windows.
  6. If you are checking color numbers don't use photoshop because you will introduce another place of introducing color profiles. Use Acrobat - it can show the numbers accurately along with overprints and color seperations.
  7. Considering Serif already has this ability built in when a PDF is imported, this does not seem to be an intuitive way, even if it worked. I say this because I tried it and it does not work to change the fonts in the document. At best it can change the text in one text block. Here is the video: Font replacement failure.mp4
  8. I understand what migo is asking for. When you open a PDF it offers to replace the missing font with a substitute and it can be permanent if you choose. Once you are past importing the pdf, you can only substitute the font each time the file is opened. Other programs due allow the permanent change of fonts with a click. I do like how Affinity handles it but having a permanent option would be nice too so it doesn't tell you fonts are missing when in fact you have already chose a substitute that you would like to be permanent. Alfred, you offered a solution with "Find & Replace". How do you make a substitute font change to a permanent font in all of a document's font usage as permanent? I don't see such an option there.
  9. I have collected and attached the files. Thanks!!Affinity Publisher_2021-07-27-174045_Station-7.crash crash.mp4
  10. I have a file that whenever I "save as" (to clean up deleted stuff and shrink the file back down) on my Intel MBP it crashes Affinity Publisher. I can "save" just fine but not save as. However, if I "Save As" on an M1 Mac it does not crash. Is there something I can do to fix the program?
  11. Strange problem that I have been encountering lately. My gradients are banding strangely when they should be smooth. I have to show it in a picture rather than screen shots because in screenshots the problem goes away. I don't know if this is a Mac issue or an Affinity problem.
  12. thanks! that seems wrong to me too. Thanks for finding that.
  13. I'm using Affinity Designer and Publisher 1.9x on the Mac and I cannot get the spell check window to come up on the screen at all. It works fine with the red squigle and that can turn on and off but the window will not come up. Am I missing something?
  14. I agree with you, but that's not what I'm asking. I would like to be able to have a text frame selected and from the keyboard, WITHOUT having to move the mouse to the column field and click, change the number of columns.
  15. I would like to request a keyboard modifier option to increase/decrease the number of columns of a text frame by holding down Option+up or down arrow. This would allow faster pace of working instead of having to go up and click each time to change the number of columns. thanks!
  16. that would work, but as we are creating the pages, the columns will change with the content and placement. I'll put in a request with Serif.
  17. I'm sure that I could go up and click (which is what I do now) or scroll, but the point is to not have to use the mouse and waste those few seconds on each of them. Hopefully there is a way.
  18. I have keyboard shortcuts for just about everything when doing a newspaper. Affinity is proving itself very capable as we have switched over our newspaper from Indesign after 17 years. There is one thing (of several) that I would love to know, or if not be added, and that is the ability to change the number of columns in a text frame with a keyboard modifier such as command + up arrow or down arrow when a frame is selected. I cannot seem to figure it out what it is or how to make a modifier to do it. thanks!
  19. 1.93 isn't beta-at least not on the mac. I've switched almost all of our production machines from Indesign to Publisher - including our newspaper publication. I've found it's faster to get the weekly publication out in AP than in ID. I did 16 years in ID and now in 3 weeks it's already better at almost every level. Perhaps post this in the bugs forum and see if they can be of better help than I. have you messed around with your RAM settings in the performance preferences? I remember changing mine to make things work better.
  20. I'm not trying to be adversarial. I thought you were making the remark strictly because it was using a lot of memory, and that was the only problem. Your post didn't indicate that your were having performance issues of any sort. Failing to load is an issue, but not sure it's related to memory usage. Have you tried with 1.93? I noticed it was more stable.
  21. That memory usage is not a problem at all, at least from my experience. Publisher on my computer will easily take up a 3GB+ in a just a few minutes with just one file open. That's no problem because computers have so much memory. What's the point of lots of memory if your programs can't use it? I used to think like what your saying until I got Affinity. Realizing how much better it is to work in than Adobe changed my mind. I'm fine with it using memory if it gives me a great experience. if you want low res previews and jerkiness, dropped frames, and still use lots of memory, Adobe is your software.
  22. @GeGr If you would like to transfer your INDD files to IDML easily, there is a batch plugin for Indesign that will do your entire harddrive and save them to a folder you specify. It works pretty well from my experience. It's just called batch_convert.
