  1. I have huge 500cm x 300cm sized file. It is to be printed and placed as a wall advertise. The afphoto file has 96dpi and color mode is CMYK/8bit. When exporting to pdf I get this akward lines. The lines are not there when viewed 100% but in all other zoom levels they are. Will these line be printed? Why are these lines rendered in thumbnail images and further zoom levels? EDIT: I looked closer in to the PDF file and it seems as the AP splits this big image into multiple layers. Is there a way to remove this effect?
  2. Hi, kind of feel like newbie with AD yet. Are there any good tips&tricks to reduce the PDF file size, like options that has Illustrator? I got now only Affinity Designer and Photoshop. That kind of settings has Photoshop. But I love vector and would really wish I could make the file size of the pdf's. 1) Size: I must say Affinity Designer works amazingly with complex designs, compared to Sketch or iDraw. I've got menu done in Illustrator. The size of the pdf converted is 8mb. The same file exported by AD is 39mb. Was thinking to save these large pdf's and then open them in Photoshop and then export them with reduced size, but don't know how that will affect the project. (UPDATE: Photoshop reduces the pdf only to 28MB). 2) Crop marks? ... well... can make these manually right?
  3. Hello all! First off...let me say that I am absolutely LOVING Affinity Designer! I'm using AD to do layouts, logos, ads and illustrations for clients and I just had some reservations about the output of files. I really have to have something that can go to the printers. Print files used to mean vector graphics, so maybe I'm old school, but I'm now realizing that a lot of the effects I do in AD end up being rastered/flattened when saving to PDF or EPS files. :( Is there a better output method that insures that what you created will be exactly what you output (besides a raster file)? I need industry standard files I can send to clients (typically PDFs). I hate to compare to Adobe, but if I made something in Illustrator, everything created as a vector image, remained a vector image and nothing changed in output to EPS or PDF. I've even had lines I created in AD with variable widths end up without the variation when I exported it (just lines of one width). I've also noticed when converting these lines to curves, they shrink in width. Any help on "best practices" on using Affinity Designer professionally, would be great! :) Love this app!
  4. Anyone, Could not find an answer in a search for printing. Try as I may I am unable to get a drawing done in Landscape view on an 8 1/2 x 11 document board to print out on my printer in Landscape view. It always comes out in Portrait view cutting off the right side of the drawing. It appears correct in the Print Dialog showing a Landscape view orientation but prints out in Portrait view orientation. The printed size is exactly correct as needed because I make many templates that must be full size exact. I have tried getting Printer margins from the “Document Setup” dialog but nothing changes. Any ideas. Max P.S. Printer is an HP Laserjet Pro 401. 
  5. Hi, I suspect it is me but I am confused over printing. I'm trying out the AD and have opened a EPS logo image of mine (this was done in, I presume, AI originally). It creates a document that is 199pxx220px and 96 dpi When I print the document to the Canon iR C2380 it prints it beatifully but at a full A4 image. I amazed at the quilty but puzzled because the original work is at 96dpi. My main question is - why does it not print at corrct size? I have created from scratch a 34x43mm advert (300dpi) which also printed as if sized fro full A4. There doesn't seem to be anywhere where I choose A4 (as it could be to A3 on this printer). In other vector apps I've used the artwork normally prints at the size of the image, not the paper it goes on. I can get around this by creating an A4 document and having my image created within this but it doesn't seem like the best way to go. Surely the doc size should be the artwork size? Masny thanks for any help, Francis.
  6. Hi, i made a card and i´m trying to export it to pdf, but i wanted it to have crop marks... and i wanted more than one card per page. is there an easy way to do this in Affinity Design? Or do i have to do it all manually?
  7. Love the simplicity of just being able to make compounds and pasting inside paths (just like going back to Freehand 8) - but I can't include it in my workflow just yet as the print shops I work with only accept print ready artwork in PDF/X 2001a or PDF/X 4- 2008-10 format which is now pretty much pro standard, unless you send for digital print + exporting vector formats ends up mostly raster to all but simple paths - Looking forward to Affinity Publisher to see if it can blossom into a genuine InDesign / Quark killer although it will need the ability to output PDF/X 2001a or PDF/X 4- 2008-10 formats to be a truly pro app that could easily merged into any design studio workflow - Slug and bleed would also be a handy addition - it would just be a shame to have an app with awesome, time saving features that lets you produce a great magazine / prospectus / multipage document designed for print and not be able just create a simple print ready file which any print shop could use!
  8. Need to be able to set paper size when printing. When trying to print a custom size on an HP7520 I keep getting an incorrect media size error. Ended up outputting a jpeg and printing from Photoshop!
