  1. That rapid tables thing and other such converters really shouldn't be recommended. They are nonsense for proper colour management. OP - do you have a printer profile for your sublimation material?
  2. I'm betting it's the fill mode. The path direction is probably different between the two dots (it looks like one is flipped from the other).
  3. I'd first off try setting "flatten transforms" on in the SVG export settings (click the "more.." button to see it).
  4. It won't affect it on each side in isolation, but combined the margin of error doubles. E.g. side one shifts 1mm left, then side two also shifts 1mm left. Your offset is now 2mm. Of course it's possible that the second side shifts the opposite direction and so reduces the offset.

  6. Reverse image search and DMCA takedowns are the easiest. Failing that you need money to sue people. There's nothing you can do to the image to protect it if you want to publish it online without a watermark. If you control the page it's going on you can use a "noindex" tag to stop search engines picking it up.
  7. I'm not 100% sure what you mean here, was the source document in Adobe RGB (1998) for both prints?
  8. Draw two rectangles, one the full size of the image, one inset by the desired border size. Subtract the smaller one from the larger one. Set the fill colour on the resulting shape to white with a low opacity, and the stroke to red with inside alignment.

  10. That approach might help if the margins themselves are slightly off, other than that you will be aiming at a moving target. If the origin accuracy of the printer is say +-2mm per feed, and you measure the first print and adjust to that, there's no guarantee the next feed won't bounce the other direction or by a different amount.
  11. It happens on all sheet-fed printers, generally though yes the more expensive the less bounce you get. Although I have seen people complaining about it happening on £30,000+ machines. As you are in control of the artwork (and not printing it for someone else) it's probably best just to think about how to adjust the images to mask that variation in the print position.
  12. That is what is referred to as "bounce", a high end digital press will have very little, a desktop printer will be something like 2-3mm. As you are duplexing this you are potentially doubling the margin of error.
  13. Because you can add effects in Affinity that have to be rasterised on output. They will be rasterised at the pixel density that the document is set to.
  14. There's no such thing, if your SVG contains raster elements they will have a pixel density but it's way more complicated than just a "DPI setting" as there are lots of different scaling controls and unit settings within the SVG format. If you don't have any raster elements, then there's no pixel density involved at all.
  15. 1. Twice as wide as it is tall. 2. Up to you, can be easily toggled afterwards if you change your mind. 3. Not sure what you mean. 4. Document. 5. I forgot the exact names, just want one that doesn't rasterise the document, and has the 'set viewbox' and 'flatten transforms' ticked. 6. There are lots of ways to put SVG into a web page, and lots of ways to control it's appearance.
  16. Did you accidentally turn on pixel preview by any chance?
  17. Not trying to cause trouble, but at the top of page four of this very thread it's essentially been confirmed the security check is due to the embedded browser used in Affinity for the welcome/user screen. Maybe those other apps justifiably need a full browser in them, maybe not. For Affinity it's certainly not central to the functionality.
  18. The thing I mentioned was the devices themselves physically being unable to hit the full gamut. Take a look at what a few current low-end laptop screens can reach and it might shock you. Some are less than 70% of sRGB.
  19. What did the printer say to you when you asked them about it?
  20. I'm still on a old version of Affinity, I don't seem to have the adhesive tape option.
  21. I don't know what "Passepartout" could be, translators are coming up with words that don't make any sense to me I'm afriad. In your screenshot your document contains a jpeg and a pixel layer - all that you have is raster based. I don't understand what your print shop could be saying to you on that. If I was preparing this file, I would make the changes and then export to either a png or tiff, and place that into a new document to generate the pdf from using the colour setup the print house has asked for.
