  1. FYI: as my quick-and-dirty workaround I traced my file here: http://www.autotracer.org Maybe this link helps others in the future....
  2. Thanks for you quick reply. But isn´t there any workaround to save a mask (that was created in AP) as a new shape in AD?
  3. I have a simple black/white logo as tiff and I want to vectorize this, meaning creating a new vector file. Can anybody help how to do this? I have the latest versions of AD and AP. I masked the graphic in AP, but how can I create a vector file out of this mask? I think its quite easy, but my mind is currently somehow blocked... Thanks!
  4. OK, thanks. Your suggestion was already my workaround, but I hoped that there is an option without workaround since the source files will be changed from time to time, and the "collection file" should always be kept "up to date".... THANKS
  5. When I embedd several AD files into a new AD-file and export this new file as a pdf, the elements obviously are not exported as vector files. Exporting the source files in the same way separately, let me zoom into the pdf file without the fonts getting pixalated. Is this a bug or how can I set AD to treat the embedded files as vector files? Thanks
  6. I just testes this option an a Win7 machine, and it seems to work as a workaround! "Another option is to download Foxit Reader (free) It has an option to "print text as graphics" under preferences. I see that option now, I upgraded foxit here, then I printed to PDF Creator instead, worked good!"
  7. OK, until you implemented something eventually: does anybody have an idea if one of those ways could be an workaround? http://jeff-harrison.unleash.com/2010/08/converting-text-inside-pdf-to-curves.html
  8. Is there any option in AD to convert fonts automatically to curves while importing a pdf file? I have the problem theat I need to work in imported pdf files and very often the pdfs were created with fonts that I do not have installed => error message after import "fonts not found (...) . I do not need to change the textes but I need to replace the text layers within the document. So converting all texts to curves would be very helpful for me. Any idea? Thanks!
  9. Adrian, I checked your PS-exported tif (of my file) and it´s great! Thank you very much for your help! I can use it in my current project. Normally I use the pdf files directly in apple motion 5, but since I had the problem with the white line on the current file, I tried to find a solution based on a workaround with exported images out of AD/AP. Obviously AD/AP is not able to export a pdf that was created with InDesign (as V 1.3) as a imagefile (tiff) without those line, but your PS version is able to do this. So this seems to be a problem of AD/AP. Maybe a Affinity-guy could check this problem as well in order to find a solution for this problem? I´m shure there will be others with this problem as well. Again, thanks a lot Adrian for your phantastic support!! Hannes
  10. Thanks, I sent you a PM with my file. I know about the background of the lines, but unfortunately I have to work with the pdf files "as they are". The files are generated by the ad agencies of my customers, and those agencies are not willing to change their workflow (InDesign export settings) for me. The pdf files are initially generated for printing purposes, and the printing company needs the pdf with the current export-settings (in terms of transparencies,.....). -_- background: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/thin-white-dark-lines-stitching.html
  11. Thanks Adrian. But that´s strange! I was testing a lot during the weekend, but could not find any option to get any file out of AD without those lines.... (neither as pdf nor as image file) Maybe you could send me the indesign file that looks OK on your AD & AP that I can test them on my installation? If your file is confidential I could also send you mine.... Hannes edit: maybe there is a setting in AD preferences for this?
  12. Thanks for your help Adrian. Even that the file was initially created for printing, I will not print it, but I use it in Apple Motion 5 in order to create a movie (with Ken burns Zoom-Ins ect...) with it. have a nice weekend! Hannes
  13. I already tried to export the pdf as TIFF (from Affinity Designer AND Affinity Photo), but the problem remains.... Do you somehow heal them in Photoshop prior to exporting them?
  14. He everybody! I imported a pdf file that was created in Adobe InDesign. This pdf was intended for professional printing purposes. Unfortunately InDesign separated most of the objects to small areas, so instead of some objects there are hundreds of areas next to each other. Between adjacent areas there are white lines visible. These white lines represent the zero-pixel-boarders of the objects and are always visible, no matter which zoom setting (10% or 100000%) In Acrobat reader the lines can (visually) be reduce be disabling anti-aliasing in preferences. Is there any option to reduce those lines, at least for new image exports (png / jpg) that are made out of AD? Thanks for your help, H-Nes
