  1. Interesting, it looks like Catalina specific issue.
  2. Yes, I am able to open the SVG file as well in Safari, Chrome and Firefox. Make sure to copy and paste the complete SVG code.
  3. Which print settings are you using? Does Affinity Photo for Mac crash while opening the macOS print dialog? I am not able to reproduce it running Mojave 10.14.6
  4. Unfortunately, I am not able to reproduce this issue using the exact same Macbook Pro , Mojave 10.14.6 and Affinity Photo 1.8.4. I tried to rebuilt your workflow, but artifacts issue does not appear. Could you share your workflow step by step?
  5. Thanks for sharing. Indeed PDF-XChange Editor Plus ships with some interesting features. It's Windows only, though. As already pointed out PDF-XChange Editor Plus is an PDF-Editor and PDF Viewer for simple office tasks. It's not intended for prepress. Kind of strange argument. Pre-flighting is a essential step in prepress. It reduces costs and minimises undesired results. For now, I will stick with Acrobat Pro.
  6. With a Acrobat Pro background PDF Checkpoint is not a serious replacement. It's missing so many basic features e.g, PDF/X Output Intents, PDF conversion settings.
  7. Did you find a solution? I do experience the exact same export error message. It turns out that old PostScript fonts are causing the issue.
  8. Thank you. Sounds good to me. Totally agree. Even Adobe's Acrobat Pro 2017 single licence is within the same $500 price range.
  9. Thanks for this highly interesting discussion. I am also looking for a Acrobat Pro replacement. Acrobat DC Preflight feature is the only missing link to me e.g. reliable color management and full support for ISO PDF standards. Pitstop and pdfToolbox seems to be the only "real" alternatives for reliable print preflight jobs. However if you don't work a for a big print house, it looks like a bit over-size. PDF Checkpoint (Mac) offers some interesting but limited feature set. I am going to take a closer look at pdfToolbox. Who's already using pdfToolbox? Any experience so far?
  10. I stumbled upon your highly interesting discussion while searching for a Acrobat Pro alternative. Pitstop and pdfToolbox seems to be the only "real" alternatives for reliable print preflight jobs. Both are products are used in print houses and big publishing houses. I have also tested Nuance Power PDF for Mac which is a nice but limited PDF editor. Power PDF focus is Office tasks. It lacks Preflight functionalities. Acrobat DC Preflight feature is the only missing link to me e.g. reliable color management and full support for ISO PDF standards. I have spent so much money on Adobe CS and Acrobat DC is getting worse. With Adobe's Cloud subscription introduction, Adobe also dropped the price tag for the Acrobat DC. Adobe's Acrobat Pro 2017 single licence cost is within the same $500 price range. As I found out Adobe licensed parts of Callas preflight engine and their preflight menus look almost identical. So, pdfToolbox would be a ideal replacement. I am going to take a closer look at pdfToolbox.
  11. I am also interested in saving my interface layouts.
