  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 Chris_K, thanks for getting back to me. i did setup a paragraph text style that i use. Its font is Adobe Caslon pro. There are no custom spacings defined, pretty much everything is default. Greetz, Carsten testpage_180914_v03.afpub
  13. Hi Affinty, for some versions now i cannot get the dropcaps working as intended (at least in my case ;-)) What happens (on a newspaper layout i created from scratch - used this for years in InDesign): - got a 5 column layout with a baseline grid - write an article in a textframe, activate dropcaps (in the paragraph portion of the studio) - Dropcaps set to 3 lines - works a intended (starts at line 1 and is 3 lines high) - now activate "align to baseline grid" (also in paragraphs) - nothing else is changed, just activate "align..." - suddenly the same dropcap is 5 lines high with an additional empty line above it (making it 6 lines total) Am i missing something here? This keeps bugging me, as it would be an essential feature for my work with newspaper layouts. Thanks for any advice, Carsten
  14. Hi Kris_K no, i'm just using the zoom tool with mouse (left clicks) and the ALT-Key to alter zooming in or out. It seem to happen only if you have more than one page in the document (in my case a 32 page newspaper layout).
