  1. Update: After a lengthy process of elimination of fonts and linked images, I finally found that one linked image crashed Affinity Photo. When I removed the image so that Publisher couldn't find it, the file opened as usual. When I replaced it from the client's original email, Publisher opened. I suspect that the image had somehow become corrupted when converting it to B&W for print. Sorry for all the bad thoughts about Publisher, back in my good graces again.
  2. Yesterday, I was able to open the problem file using Designer and was able to export as a PDF for the printer, but when I repeated the attempt this morning, Designer crashed, too! Mac Mini, OS 10.14.6, Publisher 1.9.0 and Publisher Beta 1.9.1. The file remains corrupted and I am still unable to open it in Publisher 1.9 or Publisher Beta 1.9.1. However, yesterday I tried opening it in Designer and I was successful enough to distill it to a PDF for the client. Apparently, there seems to be a way to work with such a problem file using the "Edit in Publisher" option, but when I tried it again
  3. Roughly the same issue here. Mac Mini, OS 10.14.6, Publisher 1.9.0. I did the whole job in Publisher because it was trouble free until just now. No work done on file today, opened fine yesterday, now Publisher application crashes when I try to open it, so I can't even troubleshoot linked images or whatever. See attached error logs from last two attempts to open. I moved afp file from work drive to desktop and Publisher crashes when I click to open it from the finder, or try to open from with app. I'm downloading new beta 1.9.1.067. Help! On deadline to make repro PDF for printer. C

  5. I would prefer to just simply shift+command (on the Mac) + click on the locked item instead of fishing through a lengthy assortment of layers to find the locked master page layer. Even when I select the locked item, and find it as selected in the layers menu, then right-click to find "Edit Selected," the sequence seems overly kludgy. By the way, how to unlock individual items was not mentioned in Affinity's Master Pages tutorial and I think it merits mention in future versions. I'm still working on changing over to Affinity Publisher from InDesign CS6 and I think this autumn I'll probably
  6. When using InDesign, I can unlock any master page item by clicking with shift+command held down. I finally understood how to unlock the entire page (Edit Detached) but isn't this is a blunt instrument by comparison? How about a way to unlock a single item?
  7. I had been exporting using the Publisher "PDF (for print)" or "PDF (press-ready)" presets with the problem happening each time I had transparent art. I just now set the export preset to "PDF/X-3:2003" and the problem seems to have been solved. On to trying this out on my local publisher next month... Thank you MikeW, Lagarto, and Dan C.
  8. I revisited my problem of last June (see posts above) as I persist in moving away from Adobe software (old CS6) on account of their costly leasing policy. The issue here seems to come from an art file with white art on a transparent background, done in Photoshop CS5 or 6 a long time ago. When using InDesign, there is no problem, but when I try to do the job (a one-page B&W ad) using Publisher on an IDML export from InDesign, everything goes perfectly well throughout the process until I try to convert a long InDesign doc with the placed PDF as a multi-page PDF (I'm simulating the probl
  9. Hi MEB, Sorry to misunderstand… I think I have it right now, and the line has disappeared. Thank you for persisting, and also thanks to Gabe, Old Bruce, and Frank Jonen for helping out.
  10. I just tried placing the item (Depth.afp), sizing it, then doing Rasterize & Trim. See attached video and note that the white boundary lines persist. My latest version of this piece now has a white background, so the issue is moot. Still, it's bothering me enough that I don't want this happening again in the future.

  12. Gabe, I could re-do the process and I think Apple's screen capture might do the job, but going to File:Colors:Erase White Paper has seemed to cure the issue on this job. "Integer" has been mentioned a couple of times in responses and after searching "integer vs. float" I dimly understand that it might have to do with interpolation after sizing my cropped, placed images. I've been placing images since early versions of Photoshop in the 1990s and never ran into this problem until this particular file in Affinity Photo. I'm trying to extricate myself from Adobe software on account of their s
  13. I tried going to Filers:Colors:Erase White Paper and this seems to have helped with both instances. If I were using other software, I would have suspected that I had included a white stroke and generally it's an easy matter to remove it. Is there any panel in Affinity Photo that deals with fill and stroke of placed image frames?
  14. Hi Old Bruce, I don't recall ever making such a line. I copied the layer, made a new document "From Clipboard," and put down a black layer underneath. Viewing it at greater than 1 pixel size, I finally found it when I moved the image using the Move Tool. Is this a result of sloppy cropping technique? When I crop this image, I still get a new single-pixel white line. Is there a panel somewhere that I can use to eliminate what is apparently a white (or no color) 1-pixel stroke?
  15. Hi Gabe, "Integer values?" I don't understand. Could you explain? I'd send out the entire file but it's 905.8 MB! I'll cropped just one problem area , in which the problem remains visible. I encountered this issue twice in this job. 78 Plane crop.afphoto 78_Plane_crop.afphoto
