  1. Thanks Haakoo, that's a great idea. Nevertheless this is an issue of the new update 1.9 I just downloaded the Beta 1.9.1 and open the same PDF and no problem, text imported as text and dragging with snapping working good. So, we have to wait for the new update relesase. Happy week. Bogar
  2. THANK YOU ALFRED, no more beers, but, then you get a bottle of RUM. Bogar
  3. I open another PDF file and I found out that it works better, still a lag, but not so much. EyeMed Provider Locator.pdf

  5. OK Thank you loukash, big help, some beers. Bogar
  6. Dear Serif Team, I use MacPro Mid 2010, 2.8 GHz Quad core, 32 GB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB, SSD 1 TB Hard drive, High Sierra 10.13.6 I open a PDF file in Publisher, Artistic Text Tool, click (spinning wheel) and add text (appearing slowly), then drag to reposition it, (spinning wheel again) text no moving. appears a small red warning "snapping timed out", and finally it shows the new position, the farther the move, the longer the hang. Turning off the Snapping, no problem, it works as it should. Also, even though I selected "Favour editable text over fidelity" all text was in curves. Instead in Affinity Designer the PDF is imported in text and there is no problem with snap and typing. I know you will say, then open the PDF in Designer. Well, I need the information of a PDF in a Publisher doc, shouldn't it be as easy as Designer? I have to open the PDF in Designer, edited there, save a .afdesigner file, then imported into Publisher and continue working, instead of just importing in Publisher and work. Just a little contribution of a bug, that I wish it could be resolve as simple as copy/paste from Designer code to Publisher code, just kidding, I know it is not as easy like that. Thank you for your big efort to give us the best software in the market nowadays. Bogar 2020 MI 5081 - ESBG.afpub
  7. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, I thought about that, just I couldn't find the name of the preset, now I know it begins with "com.seriflabs......" Do you know in Windows where there are? I have Windows for my son and daughter, because of the school. Happy New Year.
  8. Dear Serif Team, CONGRATULATIONS !!! You are the best. I just would like to tell a little suggestion for a feature that would be a great touch to your new Studio Presets; Import/Export Presets. I have a Laptop and a MacPro for working with the amazing Affinity Suite, Making several layouts for different kind of work, take me some time do to. And, repeating those in my Laptop, well, you know already the answer. It would be excellent to finish making my layout for different Studios in my MacPro and then to Export/Import them in my Laptop. You would say, well, it is just two computer, do it. How about for those places or designers who have many computers and employees? They will benefit a lot for having those Studio Presets exported and imported. It is just a suggestion. Thank you for your great Affinity Suite. Being willing to be part of another Beta work,
  9. Good Morning MikeW, Thank you very much for everything, It has been a good class. Happy Winter, Bogar
  10. Hi MikeW, yes, please do so,I'd like to have those files. Thanks again for all your expertise. Keep me posted if something else you may say. Happy Holidays, Bogar
  11. Good morning MikeW, Thank you a lot for all the info. You are right in everything you said. The last part makes me laugh, and I agree with you, they should provide an AI file instead of a PDF one. Good news form my part. I made two PDFs from my final files. I transfer them to another computer (iMac with El Capitan), and open them in AI CS6. They look great, with a little darker tone to all colors, as usually AI does. Then, I test in AI the first PDF I sent to the printing company, and it looks badly with the knock out. My daughter saw me working with the Flag design, I told her about my issue, and she told me that she reduced the size of my first PDF file. I asked what? Well, she tried to help me, she saw my file was 9.4 MB and she used the Acrobat DC Reduce Size PDF feature, and make it 2.4 MB. Then, she sent to the printing company this reduced file. I checked this file in AI, and there it was the knockout (created by Acrobat DC I assume). Well, for you to see t, I attached my first PDF plus the reduced my daughter made. If you can open them in AI, you will see the issue. In other words, AD is not the culprit. It is AI. Thank you very much, I am learning a lot about Pantone colors and PDF exports. Which the most of the printing places in my city, use. I haven't found one of them without AI for printing. Well, Thanks a lot again, and i will work on the effects. Happy Holidays to you and all Serif Team, Bogar MM-2017-Home-Flag-bgprint.pdf MM-2017-Home-Flag-bgprintsm.pdf
  12. One more question MikeW, Why my AD file takes too long to export to PDF? or even another format. I click on Export Persona, and I didn't find the way to export as used to be, now i have to go to File Menu and choose Export and follow the same options as if i were in the other Persona. I export from the Export Persona and it passed more than 5 minutes and didn't do anything, so I cancel it. Thank you a lot MikeW, Bogar
  13. I just noticed that the black I used in the Piano keys and bkg was not Pantone. I changed it and I made new tentative final files. If I am using Pantone Colors, which Color Format should I choose in the Document Setup? right now I have CMYK & U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2. I didn't add dimensions to bleed, because I created the full file as one, them I assume the printing company will arrange the file to fit their template. the pg1 & pg2 are vector. The ones with px are rasterized. I didn't exported to PDF, since you are helping me a lot to find out what the real final product would be. Thanks a million, and good morning, Bogar MM-2017-Home-Flag-final-pg1.afdesign MM-2017-Home-Flag-final-pg2.afdesign MM-2017-Home-Flag-final-pg2px.afdesign MM-2017-Home-Flag-final-pxpg1.afdesign
  14. Thanks a lot MikeW for your expertise. Have a good night. PS: Well, if the PDF from the rasterized version, works in their machine to produce my design correctly; a little bit of change in the color is not important. I'll wait for your advise, Thanks.
  15. Dear MikeW, thank you very much for all your great explanation. There are some question to ask to the printing company. They requiere Pantone Solid Coated colors. I will send them your replay so they can give me more info. I attached the template they sent me, so you can see the bleed and marks they requested. I just duplicated my AD file and I rasterized it. Then, I exported as PDF for print. I sent this PDF to them. Let's see when they replay to me for another proof. In the meantime, I attached my AD using their template, plus their template in PDF. I also attached my two new rasterized AD files with their PDF exported (Do you think this may work with the printing company? ) Question, how do you take out RGB from the effects, and convert them into Pantone? Thank you very very much MikeW.
