  1. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions and answers. Jmwellborn’s reply is excellent and I will go back and do what he has done. I want to this book in publisher incase we have to do a third printing with any additional changes. I do realize the transfer won’t be 100% and I have had luck with 100% transfer for some things. Thanks again JimK
  2. I worked on a book (300+ pages) a few years ago in InDesign CS5. The author wanted to do a second printing with some changes. I figured great I'll export the InDesign file as IDML and import it into Publisher. The import worked fantastic; however, slight changes were made in either leading, spacing, etc. See the attached pages. One from Indesign and the other in Publisher. You will see how it pushed some lines out. This happened all throughout the book witch made me revert back to InDesign to make all the edit updates. No complaint but wondering more why this happens even though it appears all
  3. Walt - thanks for the info. I’ll try that later today and let you know how I make. I’m not sure how I’ll add a page in front of the first page. Thanks!’ James K
  4. I can not figure a way to print spreads. Printing "Book" or "Booklet" does not work as it prints the low numbers on the right of the paper and the high numbers of the book on the other side. In other words, for an 8.5 x 11 sheet, landscape, book and booklet printed the start of the book on the right side of the page and halfway through the end of the book to the middle on the left side of the page. I finally had to create a PDF and was able to print it via Preview. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks James K
  5. As a Final - Here is what I discovered. I had assigned a icc profile for "sheetfed uncoated". I went into document set up and assigned a profile of "Generic CMYK". When I printed text was solid - no screening. I suspect when printing "Sheetfed uncoated" the program assumes you are sending off to a RIP which will do some conversions. When I create a PDF I always do NOT include any profile and the printer (via prepress) will assign their own press or digital profile. This solves a problem!! Thanks again for everyones input. This was a very good discussion. Jim K
  6. Thanks to all for all the investigative work. I'll be messing more based on some of the tilts all have provided. I indicated in an earlier pay usually when sending files too PrePress we send as a PDF gone are the days off sending folders with everything - at least in most cases. It just bugged me that when printing from InDesign text was printed solid but with publisher it was screen. I'll post some of my results. Jim K
  7. Lagarto - great info. I know any file I create, for example, an Indigo it has to be in CMYK not RGB. If I pirnt from Publisher to my brother printer I get text screening. If I pirnt from InDesign I don’t get text screening. Based on your comments, I’m going to recheck my prefs and icc profiles. Jim K
  8. A_B_C - Thats a good point that I will check out; however, when printing from Acrobat Pro it prints fine. I do know some lasers will do that conversation but I'm not sure mine does. I have to check it out and thanks! Jim K
  9. Thanks MikeW and FirstDefense. Actually I would have exported to PDF (as I usually do when uploading work to our PrePress; however, in this case the sheet size was 4.75 x 7.5 and being printed on a 8-1/2 x 11 sheet. Unfortunately would not allow me to put crop marks, etc., so when I printed I didn't get that. Thanks again!! JimK
  10. I had not noticed this before but under a Loupe I saw that my 100% black text was being screened (Halftoned) in Publisher, Photo and Designer. BTW, I can see this in Photoshop as well so I'm not blaming Affinity totally! The images attached were printed from Publisher to a Brother color laser printer. The color was CMYK printing the text at 100% Black. I have checked everything in publisher (photo and Designer) and everything is set correct. Just to cut through the chase I work in the printing industry and have for many years so this caught me by surprised. I can export the document as a PDF a
  11. Not sure why this is happening but I create black text (100% K for CMYK) when I print to a laser printer it prints the text as screened text. I have tried everything and can't seem to figure why Publisher is doing that. Opacity is at 100%, etc. Anybody got ideas?? Thanks JK
  12. Please Affinity - if you eventually come out with a work book make it a spiral bound book, not perfect bound. Spiral bound book is so much easier to work with - lays flat, etc. The perfect bound is hard to keep open!! So far Loving Publisher and the Studio!! James
  13. Thanks!! I thought that was the case but wanted to check in case I missed something. Thanks again James
  14. I know how to create spot colors (non PMS colors) in Designer on the Mac but I can’t figure how to create a spot color in Designer on my iPad Pro. Any is there a way?? James
  15. Gabe, Great and thanks. I do hope the developers can figure out the issue. I have it with all three products (Photo, Designer and Publisher Beta). Thanks again, Jim
