  1. Hi! I'm trying to do a layout for a "pdf to photo book" on Blurb and I'm at a loss for how to proceed with setting the bleed in Publisher. They give the following specs: Page Specifications Points Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h) 693 x 594 Page size / trim line (w x h) 684 x 576 Bleed (top, bottom, and outside edges) 9 Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Top, Bottom, Outside Edge) 18 Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Binding Edge) 36 Cover Specifications Points Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h) 1483 x 648 Total Page size / trim line (w x h) 1439 x 604 Bleed (all edges) 22 Flaps (w x h, measured from trim edge to fold) none Gutter / Spine (w x h) 33 x 648 Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (from edge of trim) 18 I'm doing both the cover and the pages in the same file...easy enough to do that but where I'm stuck is the bleeds are different for both the cover and the left side/right side pages. Is there a way to set bleed on each master page so that it is applied correctly for each page? The way I have it set up currently, the left edge has a bleed of 18 and the top, bottom, and right have a bleed of 9 on ALL pages. I know I could to facing pages...but Blurb can't seem to handle that. Any suggestions? Thanks! -Chris p.s. the file contains sensitive information that I don't want out in the wild so I'm not attaching it. If needed, I can scrub it and attach a generic example.
  2. Hi! I'm trying to export two artboards out of designer using the export persona and having an issue. I use the "PNG" preset (file format is set to "PNG") and select my desitnation folder, but the files end up in there with a "JPG" extension. Exporting the individual artboards using "File=>Export..." works just fine. AD version is File is attached. new_card_design_2_sided.afdesign
  3. Hi! I picked up Affinity Designer the other night and I'm loving it so far. Since I'm new to the whole concept of design/designer, I'm working through the tutorials you provide and as I'm on the second "for beginners" (ketchup for blood) tutorial I ran into what appears to be a bug in how combine works on Windows 10. If I select the two shapes on top and click "add" the two shapes combine just fine. However, if I hold the "Alt" key down as suggested, the two shapes combine but the curve loses the majority of its fill (the attached images might explain it better). Interestingly, if I move the curve outside of the compound object, the fill comes back. This behavior occurs the same way regardless of which shape is selected first, which is "on top" in the layers, etc. I've attached the "offending" afdesign file as well as images that hopefully clarify what I'm saying. book cover.afdesign
