  1. I have a Project that I can export using PDF/X-1a:2003 presets and the resulting it prints perfectly. However I set it to in booklet model on tabloid paper and print it from Affinity directly to the printer, or print it to a PDF using PDF/X-1a:2003 in the Adobe PDF print driver then print the resulting pdf, I get the ghosting from text frames and images over the background image. Is there a way to export it into into a PDF arranged in the booklet layout model instead of going through print?

    Text Normal blend different on print than screen

    Looks like it was a miss-set on my end. I didn't export with the X-1a:2003 preset.
  3. The X-1a:2003 preset when exporting seems to have resolved. Thanks!
  4. I have a text layer with an outer shadow layer effect on it and is set for multiply. When I look at the pdf it looks fine. But when I print it the layer has a faint background lightening. It seems to only be for layers with effects on them. Thoughts?
  5. Of the two attached files, IMG_20181023_165815.jpg is the printed version and multiply.PNG is a screenshot.The text has the blend of Normal with no fill color set. And the image has a blend of Multiply. When I take the background image and the foreground image and put them in another program, merge them to a single image with the blend of multiply and then print I don't get the ghostly square. Am I missing a setting to prevent this? It is odd that it is happening to both images and text boxes with different blends. When I look at the exported PDF I don't see the ghosting, but when I print I do get it. Thoughts?
  6. I am moving between text frames on my layout cleanup pass. When I finish with one frame I have to switch to the node tool, click the next frame, then switch to the text tool to click and drop a cursor. Would it be possible if I already have the text tool selected, when I click on a frame it just drops a cursor?
  7. When I create an index, I get the "Index Section Heading" style. If I edit that style and change the Based On: to one of my existing headings it pulls all the style settings from the heading. But if I go into Paragraph->Decorations there is no decoration set, even though on the page my index section headings do have the decoration. If I try to modify the decoration it disappears from the page.
  8. Is there a way to add cross reference links in a document? I am prepping for export to PDF, and I want clicking keywords to jump to it's entry in the glossary, or open a link in a web browser. Or is this something I will need to do in Acrobat after I get the PDF?
  9. Seems to be related to keyboard shortcuts and the suggestion dropdown.
  10. If you mark a second copy of a word as an index, there is a good chance Publisher will crash. Manually save because the crash recovery doesn't always make a backup. I have crashed about a dozen times in the last 10 minutes.
  11. Unfortunately I have different margins for different sections/master pages because of header/footer decorations. Maybe I can gimmick a solution with guides instead of margins. Thanks.
  12. I created a master page with set margins, added a bunch of pages based on those margins. Realized the master page margins were wrong, reset them to new values, and the changes didn't propagate to the pages using that master. I saved and reloaded the file, still no changes. I cleared the Master Page from all pages, then reapplied it and the margins changed. Great, I saved the file and shut down. When I came back the next day and reopened the file, the margins had reverted back to the previous values. So I have to clear the master page for all pages again, then reapply the master page every time I open the file to get the margins right.
  13. For some reason in the Text Styles-> Decorations-> Fill color picker there is not a opacity dropdown or keyboard entry field to precisely set the opacity. I can get around this by setting the desired color and opacity elsewhere to add it to the recent swatches. But having the option in the Text Styles interface would simplify things and make it consistent with other interfaced.
  14. I have imported a PDF and want to match the layout in my new project. So I go into spread setup and change the "Show in Units" from Points to Inches for all spreads. If I have to I can do all the math with the points and document resolution. But the documents I am moving over to Affinity Publisher are fairly complex.
