  1. This problem seems to be solved in the next versions of Publisher (you can try the beta for free). They have done the PDF passthrough (the same that happen when using InDesign), which works well. I'm waiting for the beta to become an official version because I really need this feature.
  2. Hi, thank you for the good work that you're doing in Publisher. I’m making some tests on PDF passthrough using Publisher Beta 1.9.0.829. If I import an IDML file (made in InDesign) in which I had a lot of linked PDFs, they will be ported in Publisher with the “interpret PDF” function. So, in Publisher I'll have to select them one by one, by hand, to set the passthrough option. I think it will be better to have the “passthrough PDF” assigned by default. Because when I've imported all the PDFs into InDesign, it was in passthrough for sure. Am I right? Or am I missing something that I don't know? Thank you!
  3. Yes, this is heavily frustrating. The real workaround is to open each PDF into Inkscape (opensource) and use its internal Popples/Cairo interpreter. It never fails in my experience. Then you can export the file in SVG so it still remains a vector file.
  4. Thank you, now I know! Unfortunally I don't have the foreign fonts of the PDFs that I receive. I'll have to stay in InDesign for this kind of works. Anyway, for all the other works, I've switched during the lockdown. And I'm very satisfied of Affinty.
  5. Hi, I'm using Affinity Publisher both on Mac and Pc. I have this problem: when I want to place a PDF as if it was an image, Publisher tries to interpret it, and sometime it modifies its content. If I want to edit a PDF it is supposed to open it directly from the "Open File" function in the upper menu, or to edit it in Affinity Designer. Anyway this is not the point. The point is that if I only want to place a PDF as image, without editing it, I can't do it (I'm sorry, because I know that I'm comparing Affinity Publisher to Adobe InDesign). I'm working with PDFs made in other countries all around the word. They are edited in Word and exported into PDF. They use different languages and fonts, as arabic, chinese, or other. I've asked them to give me only PDFs, so that I will not have the need edit or modify them (without the need to install their fonts into my systems). When I was in Indesign I could place the PDF with foreign texts into my file and then export it to a PDF for the printer. Now, with Publisher I can't, because it changes the appearing of the PDF, interpreting the content in a wrong way. I attach here the original PDF, then the same file placed into Indesign and exported again into PDF, then the original file placed into Publisher and exported in PDF again, so that you can compare them. Am I doing something wrong in my pipeline? Is there a way to avoid this problem? Thank you, Beniamino File Placed Into Publisher and Exported again into PDF.pdf File Placed Into Indesign and Exported again into PDF.pdf Original File.pdf
  6. About this topic, in another post somebody suggested this: Export Indesign files into PDF (I suggest max resolution). Open the PDF in Affinity Designer. Save it in Affinity Designer format. Then open it from Affinity Publisher. It work quite well... not perfect, but a good way to work on ID files into Publisher.

  10. Thank you Jens, I'm experimenting the workflow that you have suggested, and it seems to be ok. I have a big archive of documents (almost 20 years of work) made in Indesign, and I'll have to find a way to bring them into Affinity Publisher, to make a definitive switch.
