  1. When I work on a document I switch between apps - photo, designer, publisher. In the end bleeds do not export (in pdf, tiff, jpg), my project ends on crop marks. In my opinion switching between apps destroys. Publisher shows no content in bleed area I first encountered this problem at least in 2020. My workaround is: - making the artboard bigger, - correcting pixel layers which did not cover bleed (e.g. from inpainting) what is also a bug, - exporting tiff or copy all layers - pasting into a new document to make a pdf with bleed export
  2. Hello, i have designed a document for printing. It ist layouted in double-sites. I exported the document with single-sites and a 3 mm bleed for printing. This is the pdf with the Problem: Tourflyer-2021-problem.pdf I attached a Sreenshot from Publisher, i´m using the latest Version. I hope, someone knows the solution. Thanks Tim
  3. Project: Paperback book cover (SOTW Cover) Artboards: Cover, Spine & Back Program: Affinity Designer 1.90 Equipment: highly capable laptop Windows 10 I have been wrestling with this for two days now. Initially started in publisher with layers trying to create multipage spread (i.e., like InDesign) in which I had separate pages (cover,spine,back) lined next to each other - similar to how you'd produce a z-fold brochure. Learned that publisher can't have more than two pages per spread. Okay. Switched to Designer using artboards of different sizes butted up to each other. Now
  4. 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
  5. Hello! I am having issues with Affinity Designer not exporting the crop marks properly on a booklet I'm trying to send to print. The bleeds are not working properly. Each finished page is 7" x 10" and I am trying to export bleeds and crop marks at .125" around each edge. I tried transforming each page to 7.25 x 10.25 thinking maybe I had to take account of the bleeds in the page size, but that didn't seem to work either. I made sure to 'include bleeds' when exporting. I am on a tight timeline to send to print and I am unable to fix this myself. Is anyone able to help?
  6. Hi, I just learned from one of the video tutorials, that an artboard can have a color, which is a nice thing to have. I tried it and realized, that it seems, that the color does not extends into the bleed, when exporting the document. Is that so or do I miss a setting? Thanks Sebastian
  7. In this lesson we set up a document inside of Affinity using guides to create bleeds. Then we go on to create a business card. Check it out and go create. https://youtu.be/tDxQaOVVWrg *Please note that this was created in 2015 using version 1.2, there have been a lot of updates since and the upcoming release of 1.7 will solve my work arounds for this tutorial.

  8. When I export a single page document as a JPEG with bleeds of .125 in on all sides, the width of the document is shorter than it should be. Also the performance starts dropping when using tables for some reason. Windows 7 64 bit i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 driver version: Affinity Publisher
  9. I feel like I missing something very obvious, but I have created a document with margins and bleeds. How do I view them?
  10. At least not in Indesign CS5, and I was delighted that Publisher has a feature for tableau printing! The absolute coronation would be even now, if horizontally and vertically different bleeds would be possible - including a rotation of the page (with suitable backgrounds) to keep the number of cuts low (works at corel draw) -> see screenshot
  11. It is custom in the Netherlands to send a pdf to a printer business with a 3 mm bleed, and cutting marks on the real documents borders. I cannot find the right settings for this in Aff Photo. Somebody knows how to do this?
  12. Hi Affinity Team, sometimes it is necessary to create a rasterized background layer. While rasterizing the layer is cut off exactly on the edges of the document. This is a problem if I need to export the document for professional printer, where I have to add bleeds (2mm - 5cm) to the document. Since the background is being cut off at the edges there is nothing left for the bleeds. Maybe it is a solution to consider the bleeds settings while rasterizing the selected layers. Cheers Tim
  13. I am starting to see a few posts asking Serif why Publisher hasn't been released yet. After just completing my first BASIC layout project with Designer and Photo it makes sense to me for at least some of the reasons why Publisher hasn't been released. The two currently available apps are still missing some very basic layout tools so Serif needs to get the basics put in those two apps before moving on to the more complex layout software. I wrote a lengthy piece about this in another thread but it was buried one hundred posts down. I just wanted people to be aware of these points so I am startin
  14. Hi Affinity Forums Team! I've not been using AD for that long, but haven't had chance to get my head around exporting PDF with the bleeds, as I could never get them to work correctly. So for instance. A5 Document, printer requires 2mm bleed all around. (A5 = 148mm x 210mm) with Bleed = 152 x 214mm Now, if I set the document to A5, and add "Bleed" of 2mm all around - will AD then make the document 2mm bigger for me all around? It doesn't seem to show? When I export to pdf.. the bleed markings don't show 2mm in.. simply just on the edge of the document??? I've had to ma
  15. When you set up a bleed, why doesn't it show up in the work area...how does it export if you are exporting as a pdf? How do I properly set up the document bleeds for printing (PDF)?
  16. Hi, first of all congratulations for your great work! I have been testing your new trial and a doubt crossed my mind. I wanted to print business cards... how can i duplicate my card on a A3 sheet to use the bleed and the crop marks? Or do i have to do all the work manually?
  17. I am very new to this so forgive me if this is a stupid question. I use Affinity to create magazine ads for the company I work for and the magazine editor requires a bleed. How do I go about doing that?
