  1. Right, that's what I did in the video... I have no idea how to fix it. Thanks for helping!
  2. Thanks for looking at this, I appreciate it. When I bring the pdf back into Affinity like you did everything (including the stroke) is CMY 0% and K 100%... See video. How do I see what you are seeing? Screen Recording 2018-10-10 at 11.55.37 AM.mov
  3. I have had a heck of a time trying to get my files to an online print company how they need them. I am trying to provide a file for a UV Spot Printed Business Card. They require a 3 page file: Front, Back, UV Highlight (with highlighted parts done in K 100%) I export my file as a PDF under CMYK and Color Forga39 (Which is also what the document has been set up in) but when they upload and bring into Adobe on their end the K is not 100%. I replicated what they were doing and sure enough, when I import the pdf into AI the K is not at 100% with the rest 0%. After hours of frustration, I finally just recreated the file in Illustrator and shot it off to them and of course it worked. What am I doing wrong?? Attached photos show: 1. CMYK for object in AFD 2. Export settings from AFD 3. Confirmation of CMYK for selected objects in AFD 4.

  4. Hi there, I have been trying to export a pdf for the last 2 days with little to no progress. I've seen previous threads regarding the same issue a couple years ago but no resolution. It doesn't seem to actually calculate the file size and once I select a pdf (I'm currently trying as an svg which is proving equally as tedious) it takes hours to export. I've tried different settings, different file types all with the same result. I had to leave it overnight and when it finally did export the file is all but legible. Because I have a deadline I am now resorting to rebuilding the file in Illustrator. I did look up the file size of the Affinity file and it's sitting at 76.7MB. The exported file from last night came in at 122.8MB. Any thoughts? Am I missing something? (That very well could be the case!) Thank you!
