  1. I designed a card with a background image and text which I warped horizontally. If I print it, the "warped" text only prints what seems to be in the bounding box - cuts the txt off the top. Photo show screenshot of what is "supposed" to print and then a photo taken of the actual print.
  2. Many thanks again. I'll continue to output to PDF/X-1a:2003 to be on the safe side
  3. With my previous attempt, I did not have a white background (was transparent) and I exported "PDF (for print)". The PDF looked fine but when printed, the placed PNG (transparent) printed the transparent part black (attached).
  4. Many thanks @Callum. You are a lifesaver I will edit the others I have with the same issue Have a great day
  5. Hi @Callum Thanks for your reply. The file is attached. I really hope you can help. Regards Barry Side panels h100 2.6x230.afdesign
  6. Exporting to PDF has been giving me issues for a while now. I'm using latest Affinity version and have laptop, windows 10 with 16GB ram and graphics card. When I export a file to PDF for print I experience transparent PNG's showing a black background when printed, etc. I therefore export using PDF/X-3:2003 which seems to work well. However, what took me a few minutes to export before (probably the ver9 of Affinity) now takes an hour or more. (The Affinity file size is 75mb and exported PDF is 19mb). My laptop also seems to use all its resources too and slows everything down making it hard to use while I'm exporting a file Any ideas of what I can try?
  7. Hi Thank you very much for your reply. I have sent the file via Drobox. Unfortunately there are no .dmp files in %APPDATA%\Affinity\Designer\1.0\CrashReports My issue I found is if I expand Artboard 4, select last rectangle and try to copy (rightclick or "edit" copy) the file just closes - no errors
  8. Hi @Callum Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the file sizes are large - the smallest being 16211 mb so not able to send... but I did manage to solve the problem. What I noticed is that the file was using 100% of my PC's resources. Any operation took forever to perform and this was happening on all the PC's/laptops I tried. From this I deduced that is was a Designer issue. I opened my file and tried to find the images I had linked to, but the resource manager did not show them. The images I used were copied and pasted directly from a previous Affinity design, so what I did was locate the originals on my PC and replace (place) them into my design. This solved the issue and now exports to PDF within seconds. I'm assuming this could be a Designer bug?
  9. Hi I have designed some signs using Designer and am unable to export to PDF. It starts to export but then gets stuck showing the "Export item" popup. I have tried on various PC's using the same file but the same issue occurs. All the sign is, is a background image, 2 smaller images, some text and some shape elements. Using Windows PC, (Desktop and laptops) What I have tried: Export whole document Export individual artboard Open and export in Publisher Wait for an hour Copy elements of one sign and open as new document Reinstall (repair) Affinity Designer Export PDF, "For Print" and X-3 I am at a loss here. Any help would be appreciated
  10. Hi all. I have design which when I try to copy a solid fil layer, the program crashes (just closes with no error reports). I'm using version 1.9.2 and have tried switching off "hardware acceleration" with the same result. My latest project does not have this problem, the only difference is that it is a lot smaller in size. Any ideas?
  11. I have my Affinity Designer language set for en-UK however, when I perform preflight I get "Missing dictionary for language (en-ZA). I have changed my PC settings from English South Africa (en-ZA) to English UK but this has no effect Anyone have a solution?
  12. Hi Yes, there is still an issue. I have uploaded the file. If you open and then delete the last master page (only tried with that one for now), the programe hangs with no scrolling etc. Can only end with task manager Regards Barry
  13. I resorted to "Save as" and then it seemed to work and allowed me to go to a particular spread. See here too
  14. Another thing I have found should the page freeze, even selecting "Go to spread" from the page icons on the left does nothing. At this point there was no way to recover the file (close and reopen etc.). I did find that the "Save as" (select another name) does then work.. this had me worried as I had a large project open and all of my work would have been lost.
