  1. Hi there, I can't wait for the full retail version of Publisher, will be putting in my pre-order (I know it's close) in the next couple of days! But I'd like to know if there's any chance anyone has thought about adding either a prepress plug-in or Persona to fully press check documents as you can in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro? For example check that spot ink or CMYK separations and rasterisations are correct as required for the print destination.. Acrobat has remained as my only tether to Adobe, it would be nice to be completely free at some point in the future! Anyone else think this? Thanks for listening... Cheers Kind Regards Piers Le Sueur

    Vanishing bleed Designer

    I was going to enter a new topic... ARTBOARDS: on top of the lack of visible bleeds, I have found that Designer Beta won't output spot color when the document is set up using art boards! I want to be able to have multiple boards and be able to use the pasteboard (areas outside of the art board itself) ad be able to output spot colors. Works perfectly fine as a one canvas (non art board document) NOTE: I have found that Publisher works a lot better in these areas, will these things get tidied up for designer? or is your intention for Publisher to become the central application with Photo and Designer feeding to that, much as the Adobe trio of InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator? Cheers
  4. Hi - I've been a print designer for a long time and still do the occasional print piece.. I understand that Affinity/Serif don't plan to create an Acrobat competitor however the thought occurred to me that perhaps a prepress module could be incorporated to Publisher either as a persona or menu option? The only reason I still sub adobe is for Acrobat so that I can proof my print files. I also understand that there are prepress alternatives out there but they are industrial strength and are cost prohibitive! Would love to hear your thoughts.. Cheers
  5. Hi there, I created a multi artboard document within the most current version of Designer on Windows and the October Windows Update 1809 to an Epson SC-P405 There's an option to print document but when document option is set the display view shows that it's treated the all the artboards as one large piece and only wants to print a chunk the size of my selected paper output. Also the auto rotate doesn't appear to work, I can turn it off and set that manually. But the auto just no.. Please find attached screen shot of the dialog.. I could have printed each artboard separately but that's long and tedious, so I decided to check out the Publisher Beta and got the result I was expecting all behaved as expected. Anyone else had a similar issue? I'm presuming due to the work loads that these common task issues in Designer and Photo will be ironed out on the next Customer Beta or Retail release? Cheers
  6. Will that get rectified in later update/release??? master pages = good, no bleed output on master pages = not good.. Cheers

    Adobe Acrobat Alternative?

    I use Acrobat for professional Pre-press.. being able to check for correct separations and correct overprints, knockouts and trapping.. etc.. that's the functionality I am looking for.. Sam Neil: " Nitro PDF is the best one out there. We use it all the time. " does that have prepress capability??? Cheers..
  8. Perfect installation... first impressions of the bat.. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!! Very impressive indeed! Looks like everything that's needed (at least for my intended workflow is there!) I can't wait to buy it when the retail version is released!.. I totally love everything I've see so far!!!! awesome work guys! Just one thing that does come to mind if Affinity were to create a Pro - Prepress biased PDF tool then I'd be able to be completely rid of Adobe.. I have not found any other PDF tool that comes close to Acrobat.. Cheers guys!!!
  9. Hi I was wondering if there was any consideration of including object level overprint selection in the near future? I recently had to do some tricky overprint settings for a packaging project, and in the end I had to make copies of pantone colors one overprinted the other not and then apply the colors to the objects as requited.. unlike illustrator where you can set all the elements to the spot color then just apply overprint to the relevant elements, I hope that made sense. Cheers
  10. I could as a workaround until this bug is fixed, copy the exif data from the original file and paste it into the exported file using ACDSee Photo Professional 2018 (My Lightroom/RAW editing replacement) I realise that Photo does RAW editing but it appears to be a destructive action ie once you've developed the file you can't go back and edit RAW settings or have I missed something? Cheers... P.S. I haven't tried the copy/paste EXIF thing myself..
  11. Okay I am confused... I have a NIKON D3300 with a 24mpx sensor, when I open and develop the NEF raw file, and I check resize document, I get 6000 x 4000 (or weirdly lately 6016 x 4016) @ 300dpi.... If I go back into Resize document and uncheck resample and set it to 72dpi then export the file to jpeg, not changing the pixel size.. ie same 6000 x 4000px then open that jpeg document in Photo... and check Resize Document, it's still showing 300dpi when it should be 72? I have tested this by creating a 6016 x 4016 72dpi image and placing the previously created image into it and it fits and the information at top left says for placed image 6016 x 4016 @ 72dpi.. So is Photo incorrectly showing the resolution of the opened (not placed) 72dpi jpeg file? or have I missed something here? Thanks for any clarification.. Cheers

    EXIF file loss and DPI not holding after changing

    Oh.. .sorry my bad.. I'm having a game going the other way! my NEF file comes in at 300dpi and I'm trying to export to 72dpi I think I've opened myself a can of worms here!! LOL!

    EXIF file loss and DPI not holding after changing

    No no no I found it!! I found out what you need to do... Step 1. Open the RAW file to the develop module (it will do that automatically) Step 2. Edit the RAW file or just click on develop to Photo.. Step 3. Resize Document: Uncheck resample and select 72dpi and hit Okay.. Step 4. this is where the magic happens go to the layers palette and right click on the image and click on RASTERIZE.. Step 5. Export to Jpeg at current dimension or new dimension and save.. You should now have a 72dpi jpeg WITH EXIF... can you try that please?? Cheers!
