  1. Ok, did some testing with my output settings. My custom preference (based on pdf/x-3) worked until some weeks ago. I now started the customizing over (again based on pdf/x-3) and now it works as expected. My "old" preference still gives me rgb images, the new one (identical settings) is working as expected. I carried the preference around for some versions now. Maybe it got compromised or Affinity changed something over the course of the last versions of Publisher. Could be, that this was even a preference i did during beta versions... However: Thanks @MikeW, you got me experimenting and redoing my preference :-)
  2. Thank you @MikeW, i already tried that and the resulting pdf still has the rgb images embedded (testet with preflight in acrobat). As you can see in your screenshot, there is the grayed out "convert image color spaces" right underneath the color space flyout. This only becomes active when i choose an non x-... pdf and then works as expected. But i do need to convert these for an x-3 or x-4 output during the export.
  3. Hi everyone, perhaps someone can help me here. I vave a newspaper layout in cmyk with placed rgb images. after finishing everything, i want to export the file to pdf/x-3 and in the process convert the images in the given cmyk profile. I know, pdf/x-3 and x-4 are accepting rgb images, but my newspaper printer's preflight is mocking about it. In InDesign i could "force" the output to covert images to CMYK, in Publisher this option is greyed out as soo as i choose pdf/x-3 or 4. Am i missing something here? How can i convert these images to CMYK during the export of my document? Any help is appreciated.
  4. Hi there, first of all a big thank you for all the effort you put into this. I bought each and every bit of affinity software and using it for my professional work (transferring from adobe cc). What i actually really miss is a word/character count tool or info panel that states theses numbers. I use this to see: - character count in an article - character count of marked text - character count of overflowing text (in InDesign this is stated as xxx + yyy (visible and overflowing) This info is then used to tell writers (of a newspaper) how much they need to shorten or prolong their articles. i do not want to discuss if and what for this is needed (there are threads about this) - it's just a feature any software that is working with text should have. Almost any other layout software does have this (not to mention word processors). Is this feature coming or planned or is it in there (and i just cannot find it)?
  5. I too need this on a daily basis and am missing this feature a lot while transferring from InDesign to AP. My use case is layouting a small newspaper and getting the texts from about 6 different people. I have to go on a layout after content principle. This means the writers don't care much about the correct length of their articles and after the first layout run i do have to tell them "this could be xx characters longer" or "this have to be 234 characters shorter" etc. For the last years there is the handy "info tool" in indesign which i use for: - See the total count of characters in the text's columns (linked) - See the count of characters in marked text - see the count of overflowing text (that's for me the most helpful part) As stated above, this whole counting is a feature in almost every software that deals with text and should be in AP as well.

  7. Ah, tried this before and got single pages (at least i thought so ) Now it works as expected, i must have gotten something wrong. Thanks for your help!
  8. Sorry for asking, i did not find an answer so far. I'm transferring an InDesign newspaper layout to Publisher. In the past i could jut export single pages for the printshop and a second run with complete printing sheets (the 2 facing paces on one pdf sheet) for overview and presenting it online at the web. That second part seems impossible in AP or am i missing something? In InDesign it is an obvoius option at the export page, in AP i do not see such thing. Any ideas or help with that is much appreciated. Carsten
  9. I second that. If not a correct preflight checklist then at least a hint on what pages what error occured. Text overflow on one page (out of 68) is kind of not nice if you don't know on which page to look for it :-)
  10. same here... Edit: Works now. Just to much traffic i suppose
  11. Same as the two poster above here " Payment limit exceeded". Doesn't matter if i am logged in or not. Update: Now everything worked fine. Really seems to be an overload of the website
  12. Hi R C-R, the linking would be a very nice feature but in this thread i am concerned about embedded vector-files that are getting rasterized. They should not. Turning rasterizing off complete is not working at mixed documents where you need some things to get rasterized. Vectors should always stay vectors - embedded, linked or whatever. So, for the ones of us who design for print (export to pdf), embedding vector files is just not working right now.
  13. Hello Leigh, i already did use workaround 1. But there are a lot of people (even i know) that are using linked files in their workflow (mostly linking to logos for corporate design things). So when the logo changes for some reasons you have to lay hands on every single document you've created with this logo.. (pain in the ...) So embedding or better linking should always maintain the vectors - otherwise this is simply not useful if your using this professionally - as "rasterize nothing" will not do the job well if you DO have things to rasterize in your document. Thanks for the clear-up and hopefully this feature will be implemented in the NEAR future :-) I like AD a lot and would give away illustrator...
  14. Hi everyone, maybe i'm a bit blind on this. What happens to me is the following: - i create an AD document. i embed a vector file created also with ad - i see this embedded file as "embedded" in my layers - i now export the whole thing as pdf x/3 and every time the embeded file (vector and only curves in there - coming from text) gets rasterized. - the text i added as a normal text frame (not embedded) exports fine as vectors in the resulting pdf So, how can i make the embedded file stay as curves and do not get rasterized? I do this a lot in Illustrator and the linked and/or embedded vector files are never simply get rasterized (export as pdf x/3) - they stay vector(ish). Am i doing something wrong here? Thanks, carsten
