  1. Will the option for PDF/X-1a:2001 (PDF 1.3) be available in the final release of Publisher? In the UK most national and regional newspapers and magazines require PDFs saved to that format. Currently, I'm exporting PDF/X-1a:2003 then using Acrobat to resave to PDF/X-1a:2001.
  2. I created a PDF flyer on Publisher, exported is as a PDF, and want to place that PDF in a new Publisher document. The PDF flyer contains a TIFF image of the book cover. If I place that PDF into a Publisher document, the TIFF image goes all weird and black and white (see screenshot). I have other PDFs in that include TIFF images, and they seem to place OK, so not sure why this particular PDF / image is causing issues. Screenshot and PDF attached. Thoughts? Schwanzer AI.pdf
  3. Hi there, I am using affinity designer on a mac and currently experiencing this problem. I need to export the final image for print as a banner and it is quite large. I can export a png file ok but not a pdf. I don't have access to the original file as I am not the original artist. Any help on getting this resolved would be much appreciated. I am currently using 1.61 which seems to be the latest version for mac. Thank you, Miriam
  4. I need to export jpg's for an IOS app and need different dimensions for different phones. I was planning to resize the jpg's but then several people suggested to use pdf instead. I am aware that you can scale pdf's when they contain vector and fonts ... but how does the scaling work with images?? Is the algorithm different? I always had the believe that a pdf simply CONTAINS a jpg and that the rendering algorithm are the same?

    Will Affinity Publisher support production of a PDF/A format document as a choice when exporting a PDF document please? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PDF/A William Overington Thursday 7 March 2019
  6. Hello, First, sorry for my poor English. It happens in using Affinity Designer. If I use KoPub Batang font, exported pdf doesn't show Korean characters. With embed all font doesn't work for that fornt, but work text as curves. I just add sample file and font KoPub Batang_Pro Medium.otf that is free font font-problem.afdesign font-problem.eps font-problem.pdf
  7. Hi! Please, i need to export my works in PDF version 1.3 (Acrobat 4). This is the only reason I still use Photoshop instead Affinity Photo. Unfortunately local italian printers require this PDF format. Can You integrate this PDF format? Thanks!
  8. I have created a document in Affinity Designer and sent it to a printing company who have replied and said it is not in the correct format. It is an A5 document and as per their guidelines I created a 3mm bleed. I have exported it (and clicked 'More' and 'Include Bleed) but when I export it as a PDF it has a white border around it. I have scoured these forums for answers, I have tried exporting it about 10 times now using different settings- with and without printers markers, as a preset 'PDF for print' to name a few. I even created a slightly larger document (a few cm bigger than A5) to see if that worked! I just need the background colour to go all the way to the edge of the PDF and not have a white border! The company won't print it until I send it without this so I need to sort this out as soon as I can! :o
  9. I'm not sure this is a bug. If not it's a bit confusing. I intend to export selected pages to PDF from a document. If I select Area: All pages, and specify some pages by page number, the result is a PDF with only the first page in the document. The first page is not among those selected for export. Publisher 249 on windows 10. Settings attached.
  10. Hi I have converted an image supplied in RGB to greyscale, to place in a book of (overwhelmingly) text, but no matter what I seem to do, when I export to PDF it seems to convert back to RGB. I am trying to export so everything is on one plate for printing. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug, (or something in development). Everything else seems to be working pretty well - so thank you Affinity! Would be glad of any advice. Best Westrow
  11. Hello everyone, I am using Publisher for Mac on the latest Beta. I created a project with 5 pages, using only the master page tool and inserting some images and writing text in a custom font. When I wanted to export it as PDF, Publisher first said there were overflowing text frames, although I couldn't spot any, and then started exporting but eventually stopped giving only a vague message. Can someone tell me why it does so and how to fix it? Thank you in advance!
  12. hello people, i'm using affinity designer - latest version - and windows 10 with 32 GB ram and a gforce gfx 970 card and it's VERY VERY slow when i'm typing some text or move things around the workspace. is there anything wrong with the gforce or did i miss some settings? in performance settings i switched to gforce 970 and FAST preview setting but it's slow as hell. --------- next thing i didn't find anything in the forum is: i have a few afdesign files and i want to link them in one master file. i created a artboard file and PLACED them. when i want to export this master file is empty. it seems that affinity designer can't export placed (linked) afdesign files to pdf? as soon as i raster those placed files it's working - but i want to keep the ability to edit those placed files. there is no option to write scripts or set "raster everything before export to pdf" button :( is there any solution to it? thanks a lot for helping me out. mike
  13. I've been using Affinity Designer and really enjoyed it. The problem is that I am unable to create usable files. The kind of work that I do requires a layer of grouped die lines to be placed over a layer of art. The manufacturers I work with need to be able to rearrange the dies and corresponding artwork. The manufacturers all use Illustrator. When I export files as .PDF or .EPS, they open in Illustrator with every piece grouped together, in a single layer, within a clipping path. I can't submit files like that. SVG's preserve the layer structure, within another layer, but the dimensions are way off. To be fair, I am aware that these problems are not unique to AD. I've tried separating out the layers in Inkscape with the same result. Another colleague creates his die lines in AutoCAD, but still uses Illustrator to set up files for output. Is there a legal reason for this lack of compatibility? If so, how come SVG's almost work? Is there some sort of workaround? Any plan to change this? I think anyone who works with die lines; packaging, for example, would have the same issue.
  14. Hi, I think I have encountered a bug when outputting a PDF for print. Here's how my artwork is set up and (hopefully) how to replicate the bug: Create new document with a bleed value and multiple artboards Create objects that overlap bleed area File > Export and select PDF Select 'PDF (for print)' preset. Though this may occur on other presets Select an Area of one of the artboards Tick the 'Include bleed' checkbox In the 'More' section select to 'include printers marks' Export the file The resulting PDF features the single artboard artwork and all the printer's marks but no bleed. This can be remedied by selecting the 'Area' in the PDF export dialogue to be the 'Whole document'. Then the 'include bleed' setting seems to be honored. Please let me know if you need any further details to reproduce this bug. I've attached the source artwork and the resulting PDF, sans-bleed. PS Also, on a point of English, should the label "include printers marks" be "include printer's marks"? multiple artboards.afdesign Art2.pdf

  16. HI there, One feature Photoshop has which I really miss in Affinity Photo is the ability to extract the images from a PDF. Often clients supply a PDF, which contains images that you might want to use without the text over the top, or cropped differently. If you could import the original image, it will be more usable in other projects. Thanks Andy
  17. When I open an EPS (logo over white background) I am unable to make a selection with either the Selection Brush or Flood Select. I can make a selection with the Rectangular Marquee tool, but if I select some of the white background to the side of the logo and hit delete, the logo goes away. I only have one layer so I'm not sure what's going on. Additionally, PDF files seem to work the same way. I have tried flattening the images first and that gives some more options, but still not everything works. When I open a PNG screen capture all tools function normally. I am new to Affinity Photo and it seems to be really powerful and I'm sure this is operator error. I have looked at the forum and tutorials and cannot find topics on these particular issues. I would appreciate your help. Thank you.
  18. Hi there! I am opening some multipage .pdfs in Affinity Photo and I can see all of the text and various texts fields on the various pages listed out as layers. I am able to copy text fields from one AffPhoto document to another by selecting the layer and `control C` and then paste over to another document. But some text field layers dont let themselves be copied and "beep" at me. I cant tell the difference between ones that I can copy and ones I cant. They are all just similar kinds of text fields from similar kinds of pdfs. It's just that I can copy some of them and not others. What is going on? EDIT - Now that I go back to those first files I find that I cant copy the bits that I was able to copy before. Now they beep at me as well. LAST EDIT - I figured it out. I didnt realise I still had to make a selection to copy a text field layer like I wanted. I had switched to just selecting the layer and copying, but I still need to make a selection for that to work.
  19. Hi, I'm on macOS 10.14.2 and I'm using Publisher version 1.7.0.227. When exporting a PDF for print, I get several issues: PDF pages all have different sizes (I set up the page size in Spread Setup) I get the impression that for every page only the area of my content is being exported instead of the whole page. background is transparent (I unchecked this option in Document Setup) color space and profile are wrong (I set CMYK in Document Setup) See attached file for export settings.
  20. Hello, It would be great to be able to add URL's to image elements within Affinity Designer(AD) so when exported to a PDF the links works. Currently I have to export to PDF, then edit in Acrobat to add the URL's then if I need to change the original document I have to do this in AD then add all the links again in Acrobat. Very time consuming! Thanks Richard
  21. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227. I have a document where the pages are non-facing and I would like the reader to automatically view them as single pages rather than as 'spreads'. When I export to a PDF in Publisher, the PDF shows in a web browser as I would expect with one page on top of the other scrolling downwards - see first attached image from Firefox. However, when I view the document in Acrobat Reader DC the document is always shown as a 'spread' - see second attached image. Is there a way for me to tell Publisher to 'force' or suggest to the PDF viewer - I don't know what software the user will be using - to use a certain page display mode, as shown in the third attached image which shows the options in Acrobat Reader DC? The one I want is called "Enable Scrolling".
  22. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227 When I export as "PDF (for print)" my document comes out okay but when using "PDF (for export)" or "PDF (for web)" a semi-opaque layer - with fully-opaque sub layers - is exported strangely. See the attached images: first for print; second for export; third for web. I've also attached a cut-down version of the document. export_opacity_issue.afpub
  23. Hi guys. We're really missing the feature to open PDF's with baked embedded fonts. I understand that this feature is why many still clins on to Photoshop, like my self. Please make this feature a reality!? We have been waiting for this for several years now...
  24. Hi, it would be very helpful to get a PDF/X-3:2002 (1.3) export option. Like it is still available in InDesign CC. When working with small printing (also large ones) companies they often support / prefer this old standard. Because if the transparencies are flatten they have less problems. Yes, they want to use their "old" software. In the ever-shrinking print world they have problems out of the costs. A Software update would not pay off for a very long periond of time. I don´t need this type of PFD files very often, but with my last two projects I have had exactly this problem. Searching the internet it also turns up very often. Also here in another topic: Would be nice to see this option in on of the upcoming updates. Best, Thomas
  25. Hello, i have a problem with the export from a file in Affinity Publisher. I want to make a Sharp pdf file & keep the options with url-links. But all the exports I tried failed and created a faded result. Doesn’t look professional. Am I doing something wrong? Can someone help me please? I cant figure it out & need the file today. Thanks in advance!
