    No Bleed on PDF Output

    I went ahead and made a separate post to better organize things over at My apologies for taking over this thread.
  2. I accidentally posted about this in another thread since I was initially having issues with another problem when this one presented itself. Currently working with build For the most part, if I make a file as normal, save it, then export it to a PDF it works as it should. Now, let's say you've made a few that needs to be split into 2 separate pages for some reason and then go back to export the first page and the second via the dropdown menu for Area set to current page. What I've found is that the previously exported file is instantly removed during this process and it does not allow you to rename the new file to something else before the old file is removed. Thinking I had done something wrong, I go back and try to export the next page and try to rename it to another name, only now that previously exported file that had a different name is now gone. This sort of behavior also presents itself if you save the file into separate folders as well. The only time it does not do this is if the file is open in another program (say Adobe PDF viewer) or has been renamed within File Explorer right after it's been exported. Now, what's odd is that this sort of behavior does not occur in Affinity Designer and Photo at all and I can generate as many differently named PDF files as I want. Exporting JPEG's, PNG, and even PSD all appear to export fine, just not PDF.

    I have the same build ( on Win 10 Pro (build 17134), but even after closing the app and reopening a file I was testing, it did the same thing as I described before. I even went as far as putting the source file and exported files in different directories and it's doing the same exact thing in the new folder. The only way I can keep files as I try to export multiple copies of it is to rename them in File Explorer after it was created the first time.

    I select that option and it instantly deletes the old file before I can rename the new one. Hell, it even does it to files that are different from the file I'm working on like it remembers which file it previously wrote. The only time it does not do this is if that file is open in a pdf viewer or has been renamed after it was exported within File Explorer. Though, if you overwrite it and re-export even to a new file name with the current page or all pages set, it still overwrites that file. Also, if I try to do the same thing within Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo, none of this behavior presents itself. I can keep saving multiple files with different names without it automatically deleting them when I open the export dialog. It's confusing, but that's exactly what's been going on whenever I export files to PDF. I suspect it also does much of the same if it were a JPEG or TIFF since it automatically removes the previous file. It's also very annoying.

    I'm not sure if anyone else is having this particular problem, but every time I try to save a PDF, it automatically removes the last one I've created. This tends to be frustrating when you have to export multiple pages separately (say for business cards with some sites) and it instantly kills the previous export rather than allowing both the previous export and the new one you're working on to exist with separate filenames.
  6. I just tested this on my system and I got the exact same issue were it crashes, but leaves no crash info. The crash log folder ( %APPDATA%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\CrashReports ) is also empty.
