  1. Hello all, I am responsible for public relations at the German Mycological Society and create all my printing templates with Affinity Publisher. However, a colleague from the Presidium, who also designs printed matter, has been working with Indesign for years. Neither she nor I want to learn how to use the other app. Besides, I am not willing to spend money of our society for this and certainly not my own. I myself have an easy job importing her data: She exports her documents as PDF/X-4 files with image compression disabled. I open them and save them as .afpub files. With version 1.
  2. Curious. I extractet the fonts directory from the install.wim of the installation iso. Then I copied the font files into the C:\WINDOWS\Fonts directory of my system. And the error is there again. Tomorrow I'll try to solve the error. Update: I cleaned the font cache (services.msc contains no entry, so I had to stop the service with the command "net stop FontCache"). Then I added two .reg files to the Windows registry (please have a look to the quote below). After I restarted the computer all is working fine.

  3. Yes, I'm using Windows 10. It would be great if you could send me the most current fonts via PM. Thanks in advance
  4. I'm using no extra font manager. I cleared the Windows font cache - the same before. After that I downloaded the Arial fonts from the Microsoft TrueType core fonts at Sourceforge, unzipped the archives and copied the .ttf files into the WINDOWS/Fonts directory. After restart the Publisher the exported PDF is showing well. I think the fonts were destroyed. Thanks for your helping hints
  5. Thanks for your test. How could I solve the font cache corruption?
  6. Hello, if I export a file with text in a field (Arial Bold) as PDF the text is shown like character salad. If I use the Microsoft PDF printer or change the text to regular the exported PDF is showing correct. What did I wrong - could anyone help me please? Best regards, Andreas test.afpub
  7. Affinity Publisher is much cheaper than Indesign and is available without a subscription. I am convinced that the program will find its buyers. An open file format would give Serif the chance to open closed InDesign workgroups for afpub users. A practical example: I volunteer my time in a non-profit organization and occasionally design flyers and posters together with a colleague. But she works with InDesign and I use afpub. She saves her work for me as PDF/X-4 files, which I can easily open with afpub. But I have not yet found a satisfactory solution for the opposite direction. Whet
  8. Hi MEB, thanks for your fast response. Do you know anything about the price range of the Affinity Publisher? Is the program payable for private users? Best regards Andreas
  9. Hello, I've read this on your website: Will Affinity Publisher open PagePlus X9 *.ppp files? Thanks in advance Best regards from Germany Andreas
