Here is an error that I was able to replicate on my system MacOS Catalina version 10.15.7 (19H15) Affinity designer app store version 1.8.6 In the attached affinity file you can see that the white object is in a group by itself and the group opacity is set to 90%. When exporting this to pdf (see attached), the grouped object has weird glitches around the edge. The version on the right is smooth and round. glitch.pdf pdf-glitch.afdesign
Okay, we have tried to cope with some crashes and such. But this isn't any longer possible to ignore. If you do vector images, for instance using the very same Publisher and save those as SVG and then place those vector images on top of bitmaps and create PDF using PDF 1.7 it will not create PDF where the vectors remain as separate layer and as vector, but it will rasterize the vector image. This is makes creation of any actually print proof materials impossible. And as we all should know, if you link afpub files within afpub you'll experience crash sooner or later. This is a situation that really forces us to rethink that can we use Publisher. What can be done to this? It is reproduced easily on both Windows 10 and MacOS. This is the SVG I placed on top of a complex bitmap: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1tbt3iyzszwcr11/2AP Icon.svg?dl=0 It is placed there in a Picture Frame and set at 50% opacity. No layer effects needed to make the rasterization happen. However, this works FLAWLESSLY when the very same SVG is used WITHOUT the aforementioned Picture Frame. So, in essence what ever I place to the picture frame gets rasterized no matter what else I do. This is a really complicated problem as if I want to make any consistency, I'd need to be able to use same template and then just change the vector file. But if I can not use the picture frame tool to make box that is intended for the vector, how on Earth is it intended to work? See. This is the file with Frame Tool used: https://www.dropbox.com/s/54svk75zhsbtsna/2x2_A19_FC_SpiralStairs.pdf?dl=0 ===> And you will notice that vector file is rasterized https://www.dropbox.com/s/lwifq8zl5trc7k8/2x2_A19_FC_SpiralStairsTest.pdf?dl=0 ===> And here you'll see the very same vector file working nicely as vector, but this time I just CTRL+X for the vector image from previous to get it out of the frame, the CTRL+V to paste it, manually scale and place it and set to 50% opacity. Voilá, it works, but with massive manual hassle.
