  1. same here... Edit: Works now. Just to much traffic i suppose
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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).
  6. Hi there, first of all: i'm super excited about AP. At the moment i'm recreating a newspaper layout i've done in ID and use zooming a lot. What is annoying is that everytime i click (doesn't matter if zoom in or out) it centers anywhere but the point clicked. In almost all cases i end up somewhere in unused space (gray) or even other pages - but nowhere near the intended spot. This works flawless (at least for me) in AF and AD. Thanks for looking in to this (or perhaps explaining that i'm doing something wrong here ;-)).
  7. 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.
  8. 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...
  9. 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
  10. The embedded file is in both versions (.psd for AI and .affinity for AD) 300 dpi and essentially the same file size. The pdf-export is set in both programs to 300 dpi for rasterized content.
  11. Yes i tried this. But it is a placed pixel-picture anyway. Should make no difference? However, the pdf-export does rasterize it too. It makes no difference if i do it manually oder it's done by export-persona -> still 10 times lager than pdf done by AI...
  12. Hi everyone, i just have a question about pdf filesize. I am in the transition phase from AI to AD and noticed that the exported pdf/x-3 -files from AD are MUCH larger than the ones from AI. For instance: i have a banner in ai - results in a 5 MB file. Now i redesigned the EXACT same banner from scratch in AD, export it as x-3 pdf and get an 50! MB file out of that. The banner incorporates an pretty big .afphoto file (placed in AD). I placed this in AI too (but as .psd) - both are pretty much the same filesize. The only way to get down the filesize of the pdf in AD is to lower the jpg-quality in the extended export options - but this results in the expected quality loss... (and is never getting near the filesize AI does) Am i doing something wrong or is there an obvious reason for that behaviour that i am just missing? Thanks for any enlightenment :-) cpoh
