  1. Hi! I can see the bleed margins, but i can't see the content when i'm trying to edit it. I only see the bleed content in the pdf. Is there any way i can see the bleed content? Thank you.
  2. Steps to reproduce: Create a document with the following settings: An even number of pages, for example 4 Facing pages, starting on the right Some amount of bleed, for example 3mm Edit the default Master A to have a green rectangle object covering the whole page, including bleeds Create a Master B, do the same as above, but with a red rectangle, for easy visual reference Apply Master A to pages 1 and 4 Apply Master B to pages 2 and 3 Move the page 3 to page 1 position, this immediately breaks the bleed on page 4 For a reference on the above, see the attached Publisher.mp4 video. Next steps: Export the file as PDF with the following settings: Preset: PDF/X1-a:2003 (I think any preset will work, but this get the job done fast) Include bleed Export Area: All Pages Open the PDF created on Acrobat Pro (or any other PDF software that can show bleeds) Page 1 is OK Page 2 rightmost bleed will be a red object, green was expected Page 3 leftmost bleed will be green, red was expected Page 4 rightmost bleed will be empty If using Acrobat Pro, will be able to edit the objects You'll notice the bleeds really are trimmed For example, there's no green object below the red strip in page 2 For a reference on the above, see the attached Acrobat.mp4 video. Thanks! Publisher.mp4 Acrobat.mp4
  3. The bleed of linked documents(afdesign) is shown incorrectly. I thought I saw this report somewhere before but I can not find.
  4. It's quite a while since I last posted anything, and my notes indicate that I had thought this problem had been fixed. In my document, I use facing pages and have bleed round the outer, top and bottom but NO BLEED in the inner. However, when I export pages to PDF and ask for bleed, Publisher ADDS bleed in the inner (gutter). Obviously, this is a disaster when I come to print out signatures as there is a big white stripe (that was NOT there in the original) stuck in between the left-hand page and the right-hand page. Does anyone know how I can avoid this? I had also hoped that printing, say pages 1 through 36, as a Booklet would give me the signature I wanted but, even though I can enter that in the Publisher dialog, Publisher ignores the page range and attempts to print the entire file as a Booklet. I have a 324 page book that I am trying to print in nine signatures. There seems to be two sensible options but problems with both. If Publisher could print a page range as a Booklet, I'd be home and dry. Alternatively, if Publisher could export without adding Bleed that is NOT there then (since my PDF software can do imposition) I'd be home and dry. I've struggled with this problem for almost five years and not yet found a solution. Ideas welcome. Thanks, Robin
  5. If you attempt to data merge PDF files into an Image frame, it doesn't work correctly if PDF has a trim box defined - all content outside of the Trim Box gets cut. Just to clear things up - Crop Box is used to define which areas of the PDF are cut out. Trim Box defines the cut area for the physical blade cutting, after the document was printed. The content between Trim Box and Crop Box, the bleed area, is supposed to be shown and printed. However, AP cuts all the bleed area out, making it impossible to place a PDFs via Data Merge correctly without altering all of them. Currently I have to delete trim box entirely for data merge to place PDFs correctly, but this shouldn't be required.
  6. I am new, so please be patient. I need to export with crop marks. I have read other threads that instruct to export to .pdf, select MORE, and select INCLUDE BLEED AND PRINTERS MARKS. However, I do not have that option. Mine only says INCLUDE BLEED. If I choose that option, there are no crop marks on the exported file. Very frustrating. I am able to print the source file with bleed and crop marks, but the export dialogue does not have the option. Any help would be wonderful!
  7. Hello, I'm having recently some trouble with bleeds. I'm a newbie to graphic stuff, I've created a poster and now i need to print it and cut off the edges, so there are no white borders around it. In the document setup, I've set the bleeds to be 3mm on each side. When exporting, I've added all the crop marks and all the stuff, but when I export it to the final pdf file, the bleed marks are 3mm away from the poster, not in it actually (please see attachements, and the bleed is much bigger just to notice the difference). I want Affinity Designer to put the bleed marks in the actual poster, so there will be part of the image cut off. Unfortunately, I can't set bleed with minus at the beginning. Could anyone please help me? Thank you. A lot. Mike ostrava4.pdf
  8. Hi, This is perhaps a bit of a newbie question, so I apologise in advance but I can't find the answer in the forums. I am creating an A4 document to design a tri-fold lealfet in Affinity Designer. I set the document size as A4 landscape with 25mm bleed lines all round BUT I can't see the bleed lines in my workspace and in fact, according to the ruler the document is exactly A4 size with no bleed lines. When i export as PDF there are no bleed lines either What am I doing wrong ? Is there a tutorial specifically to set out a document from start so it can be properly set up to then be sent to a printer ? Thanks in advance PS: I am not hugely knowledgeable about graphic design / print so any help welcome. OBH leaflet inside.afdesign OBH leaflet outside.afdesign
  9. Hello Affinity members, I am creating assets for a game in Affinity Designer 1.7.3.481. For that I am using isometric 2:1 grid. In the editor everything looks fine. But after I export it, the resulting PNG has a strange outline or shadow around it. Please see picture attached. This is a 512x256 PNG, the outline is there no matter the export resolution. How do I get rid of this? It looks awful in the game. EDIT: I downloaded latest Affinity Designer version and the problem persists.
  10. Affinity designer version: 1.9.2 OSX version: 10.15.7 (Catalina) Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a document with some bottom bleed 2. Draw a shape that draws both inside the document and inside the bleed 3. Switch to Export Persona, create slice for shape, and enable "include bleed" checkbox in PNG format 4. Export slice Expected: The full shape is exported as a PNG without margins ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Actual: The full shape is exported with the bottom bleed added as transparent at the bottom. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Attached images of exports (with and without the "include bleed" checkbox) and the affinity file. When disabling the "include bleed" in the export option, the size of the image is the size of the shape without drawing outside the document area. bleed-error.afdesign
  11. Hello! I couldn't fins answer of forum, so decided to start a new topic. I am working on project to print in Affinity Designer. I need rounded corners in printed files. How should I notice it to print house to crop it correctly? Shall I set it somehow in bleed? Is it possible with Affinity Designer? I have made transparent background and put on this retrangle with rounded corners, but I am afraid it woulnd't work for cropping correcty... Any assistance is appreciated, thank you!
  12. I'm designing a children's book for a client and have run into a problem with our printing company. The first physical copy of the book we ordered had full page spreads that were not lined up properly in the center. I contacted them about this issue and they said it was due to the bleeds being incorrectly set up. I put the book together as spreads, and then un-checked "facing pages" so I can manually adjust the inner bleed for my full-page spreads on each individual page. When I put facing pages back on to see how it looks, the spread illustration flows across the page just fine. However, my printer wants to see the inner bleed for the corresponding pages to "cross over" so the bleeds appear on the opposite inner edge of the page. I've seen other posts on this forum where people have seen the inner bleed "crossover" as a problem, but my file doesn't do this. How can I set this up in Affinity Publisher? I've attached an example of what they want me to do from their site as well as screenshots of what my spread currently looks like (as facing pages and as individual pages).
  13. Im trying to set a bleed on the ipad version of AD on an Artboard. But everytime i set a bleed nothing happens. I cant see any lines and if i close the bleed menue and open it again it is set to 0mm again. Am i missing something?
  14. I'm new to Affinity, and maybe I'm missing something, but I design and print labels for various products. I start with one file in Publisher that has the labels for a product type, then I'll export certain pages to a PDF, and import them into a new Publisher file that has the layout for the label sheets I'm using. Some designs have a bleed, and I always make sure to include bleed on export, but when I import (place) them into the new file, the bleed isn't included. I'll double check the pdf file dimensions to make sure the bleed is there, but the file gets trimmed to size when I import them. Is there a setting I am missing somewhere?
  15. Greetings, I'm sure this may have been answered already, but I am having a big problem with exporting in Publisher and Designer. I'm really hoping someone can help with this... I've created a book cover for print, for a spiral bound book (which does not have a spine), and even though I have made the document with a transparent background, I always get a white background on PDF export. I have tried pretty much all exporting options. I have even exported front and back cover separately and then placed them in a full spread document, but still there is a white background where there should be a transparent one. Since my book is not published yet I've covered the artwork with rectangles, however the artwork for both front and back cover is fully rasterized (except for text which I choose to export as curves). Does anyone have any ideas? Does this happen upon grouping certain layers? Or maybe a bug with the Designer cropping tool? I also tried the solutions on both of these forums, but with no success: White bleed exporting bug Bleed always white
  16. I am designing a book that will be spiral-bound and therefore loose-leaf printed. Consequently the print PDF needs to be exported to 'All pages' (instead of spreads). When I set the inner bleed in the document settings and then export the PDF to all pages the inner bleed on the pages ends up being the page content of the facing page. If I have e.g. an image that goes all the way to the spine I have to stretch that image into the facing page in order to create an inner bleed for that page. I need to be able to seperate the spread in order to create proper bleed for the pages … in inDesign this known as 'Allow Document Pages to Shuffle'. Have I missed something in Publisher or is this indeed not possible in the current version? I have attached an image to illustrate the issue.
  17. Hi! I'm trying to do a layout for a "pdf to photo book" on Blurb and I'm at a loss for how to proceed with setting the bleed in Publisher. They give the following specs: Page Specifications Points Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h) 693 x 594 Page size / trim line (w x h) 684 x 576 Bleed (top, bottom, and outside edges) 9 Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Top, Bottom, Outside Edge) 18 Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Binding Edge) 36 Cover Specifications Points Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h) 1483 x 648 Total Page size / trim line (w x h) 1439 x 604 Bleed (all edges) 22 Flaps (w x h, measured from trim edge to fold) none Gutter / Spine (w x h) 33 x 648 Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (from edge of trim) 18 I'm doing both the cover and the pages in the same file...easy enough to do that but where I'm stuck is the bleeds are different for both the cover and the left side/right side pages. Is there a way to set bleed on each master page so that it is applied correctly for each page? The way I have it set up currently, the left edge has a bleed of 18 and the top, bottom, and right have a bleed of 9 on ALL pages. I know I could to facing pages...but Blurb can't seem to handle that. Any suggestions? Thanks! -Chris p.s. the file contains sensitive information that I don't want out in the wild so I'm not attaching it. If needed, I can scrub it and attach a generic example.
  18. Apologies for the very newbie question. I’m trying to get my image print ready and I’m not sure if I need a bleed if I already have a white margin. I would like the white border as a part of the design. If I do need a bleed, how do I get the white border to stretch past into the bleed?
  19. I am exporting a Publisher file to psd and can't work out how to include the bleed in the PSD document.
  20. See screen shot. I have a background image on the spread. The printer advised to expand the image into the full Bleed so as not to risk some "white" unprinted edges when the bleed is trimmed off. Printer indicated a risk factor of about 1/16th of an inch. In this case, the image Opacity is set to 30%, but it comes out 100% in the bleed. I think this needs to be repaired - if the printer is off in the trimming, you would see the 30% image in the center of a page, but at the edge the risk is that you would see the image at 100%. This becomes even more important for the cover since there may be a wraparound and you wouldn't want the image to suddenly change opacity as it wraps around the cover edge. If opacity is not used, then the entire full bleed image is fine at 100%. Fortunately, if you export to a PDF, this appears to be only a visual, cosmetic problem. That is, what you see in AFPUB is not what you get when you export. The exported spread does not show a 100% opacity in the bleed area - in my case it is the specified 30%. I do not know if the export to other formats would follow suit. So, maybe not so critical, but it could cause confusion for users to see the difference in opacity in the bleed. Second screen shot is a PDF export.
  21. First of all, many thanks to Serif for Affinity Publisher. You did a great job and I love the software. However, I miss two features that are enormously important and prevent me from saying goodbye to InDesign: On the one hand, I do not have the "Data Merge" function that many users often want. I do not need to go into that. On the other hand (and this is really annoying), the function "Split Spread" is missing in the "Pages" panel. But this is very important if you want to place borderless or full-page photos. An example: Almost every professional printing company requires a 3mm bleed around each side. If I place a photo on the full page, the bleed of the photo on the opposite side appears during export. (see photo) In InDesign this is solved so that you can split individual double pages and then placed on the split page the photo with bleed. (see photo) That makes no problems in the export. A smaller feature that is missing is that you cannot export the bleed mark but only the cut mark when exporting. But I think I can live with that for now. (I hope my printers too)
  22. Hey guys, I have a problem when trying to save pdf for print. I had successfully done this before, a number of times, the same exact way and this time it just doesn't work. Maybe It's something I'm missing here, please help. So, here is my problem. I am trying to save banner design with 3cm bleed and crop marks. I did set up bleed to 3cm in Document setup, I did include bleed in export pdf options, and I did make my elements bigger than artboard. And my bleed is still not saving... What am I missing?
  23. So I'm creating an RSVP card that has a bleed, and eventually will be printed 3-up on 8.5x11" paper. In the past, with the software I'm used to, I create a master document of the RSVP card, with the bleed margins set. I then create a separate document for the 3-up, and place the master into this document 3 times. In this way, if changes are made to the master, the 3-up reflects those changes. When placing the master into the 3-up, the software gave me import options when placing the master, one of them being that I could crop to the bleed bounding box. After placing the master, I would create crop marks on the 3-up (which the software had scripts for doing). So I could use some advice as to how to replicate this workflow in Publisher, at least to some degree. In order to get crop marks in Publisher, it appears I have to export the master as a PDF. Which I've done. But when I import the PDF into my 3-up, it doesn't include the crop marks for some reason, even though I can see the crop marks when I open the PDF in Preview. I'm starting to think that I will have to forgo the ability to link to the master, and simply copy and paste the master into the 3-up. Not ideal, but that is the only way I seem to be able to include the bleed. And then I will need to build the drop marks by hand on the 3-up.
  24. I’m am new to bleeds, so maybe I’m doing something wrong, but… If I create a new document in Designer for iPad, and in the document setup dialog I don’t create an artboard, then once the document is created, I can select Bleed from the document menu and add & change bleeds on any side. If, however, I create a new document and select Artboard in the document setup dialog, then once the document is created, I select Bleed from the Document menu, I get the options to view & create bleeds, but they don’t show up. Also, the Include Bleed option is disabled on PDF Export. Likewise, if I create a document without artboards, and then add a bleed (say, on just 2 sides), it works fine, but once I selecte Document—>Artboards and add an artboard, I can no longer add or edit the existing bleeds. Are bleeds meant to work with artboards? Can different artboards within a single document have different bleeds? (I’m guessing not.) Thanks.
