  1. Haven't installed the latest beta, so this might be fixed. 1. Place a PDF linked and as Passthrough. 2. Adjust it a bit with the Vector Crop Tool. 3. Note that Preflight is saying "Placed PDF has image adjustments applied. The PDF will be rasterised on export.". Result: Indeed, the output is rasterised. Erm, until now I thought the Vector Crop Tool is vector and an adjustment is something like the Vibrance Adjustment? When the PDF is embedded and you crop it, it is not an image adjustment.
  2. Affinity Publisher for Windows has the possibility of PDF passthrough, which is wonderful. Unfortunately, this does not work in conjunction with clipping: Every PDF containing vectors seems to work nicely together with every affine transformation (rotate, shear, scale): The resulting PDF file still contains vectors. Fine. As soon as I do a vector clip with Publisher in order to throw away unwanted things (e.g., a footer with page number), the resulting PDF will be rasterised and not contain any vectors anymore. Additionally, Publisher does not warn during export that anything will be rasterised: The export dialog explicitly tells me that nothing will be rasterised. The only hint I get is the suspiciously large size of the exported document. This happens with every clip, even in case only whitespace is clipped away, or if only 0.1mm is clipped away. As far as I know, PDF supports nested clipping paths. It would therefore be nice if PDF passthroughs could be clipped while preserving their vector structure. If this by some reason isn't possible, it would be useful if the export dialog would at least warn that something will be rasterised. Andreas Weidner
  3. I noticed another problem: when I place a pdf with the mode transfer and then I use the vector cropping tool the exported pdf is badly pixelized. When I change the placed pdf to a picture frame and then use the cropping tool the full resolution is maintaining in the exported PDF. This is a strange behaviour. Could you please correct. Or as a suggestion: Generally create an option that all pictures (pdf, jpg etc.) when they are placed are placed directly into a picture frame.
