  1. Hi all, Thanks for taking a moment to read. Sincere apologies if I have posted in the wrong area - I'm entirely new here! I had been working on the 1.8.0.55-something beta and migrated over to 1.8.0 yesterday (and 1.8.1 this morning) and since the change, my PDF export file sizes have increased dramatically. Before the switch, my PDF was exported as "PDF for export" at 144 DPI and it was around 30 MB. It's a 116 page document. Now, even if I use PDF small size at 72 DPI, it's 120 MB. Not to mention the export takes minutes instead of seconds. The PDF is 10% larger than the AFPUB. Colour me confused! I have experimented with different settings and I can't seem to get the file size back down to something manageable. I think it might be an issue of my lack of understanding but I'm just not sure. I've done my best to resolve it on my own through forums and tutorials but I'm coming up empty. Any guidance that could be offered would be most appreciated. March_Catalog_Working_File.afpub
  2. Having a problem exporting my affinity-file.. I tried several times to export my file into pdf/jpeg/psd. It didn't matter if it was a single page or spread, there was no error, the program just doesn't give any response anymore and I have to force it closing. My file isn't even that big, just 1,8MB. Also already checked overflowing textfields...
  3. What is wrong, i created a whole book with illustrations and text for bachelorthesis and whenever i want to save and export it , its just one page exported!!! What is that! I am very disapointed i just bout the program today?? Does anyone have an Idea? I am quite nervous. Rere
  4. Hi there, Have anyone encountered the problem when exporting artboards. Sometimes the export size is off by 1px. I was not able to find why... Here is the export window: ...and here is the size of the artboard: It basically doesn't matter if you select in the export area "Selection" or the specific artboard name. Is this known bug?
  5. These curves can not be exported as pdf’s. I suppose that is some kind of a bug. curves_not_possible_to_export_as_pdf.afdesign
  6. Hi, I've just downloaded the Affinity Designer trial, and am quite impressed. However, I am a design student and my school computers have adobe programs. As far as I can tell, I can't find any way of exporting Designer files as Ai files? I can see the option to export as psd, and I've tried to open Ai files using Designer with no problems - but I wanted to check whether there was a way of exporting to Ai that I had missed. Thanks
  7. In the Export Persona, when exporting an image for the web and you want the size as small as possible, you want to see a preview of what you will be exporting. So you can change the quality of a jpeg and see instantly what the result will be. The same when you change the number of colors in the palette of gifs and pngs. Also show the sizes in bytes of the slices you are exporting. The size is shown in the simple Export, but not in the more advanced Export Persona. Fireworks does this very well, it even has multiple previews with different export settings.
  8. Hello! I have a very urgent request and hope somebody can help me I used Affinity Publisher to create an invitation that is going to be printed. The problem is - when I convert in into PDF the color of the image turns out different than the color of a vector that I placed in the same color and a rectangle I also placed in the same color (pipette). I later tried it with the print shop's used ICC profile, but it's nothing better. While the image is the same color as the original (background is greyish blue), the rectangle and the vector are very brown. I have no idea what might be the problem...
  9. According to the manual it should be possible to set a color profile when exporting a document. However, I have found no such setting. It should also be possible to create an export setting that includes a color profile, but I can’t find that setting either. The whole color profiling is a bit mysterious for me. Of course I do understand what it is used for, but how all the settings interact is less understandable. At the moment when I develop a raw image, I will use the RGBA/32 (HDR) ROMM RGB setting. As far as I understand this will guarantee that I will keep the maximum color information in the document. When exporting the document I should give it a color profile that corresponds to the use of the exported document. sRGB should be fine for web images, a color profile for Fuji paper (for instance) when I export a JPG to be printed. Using such profiles will remove color information, so I understand. When I visited the website of the European Color Initiative, I noticed that they have the eciRGB profiles for digital photography, however these are not incorporated in the standard Affinity software. (I did install them). I’m still trying to find some kind of publication that will explain how color profiles for monitors, printers, and documents (“JPG” etc.) interact.
  10. Hello, I am contacting you because during an export or a printing with Affinity Publisher it systematically crashes for the cost no way to send my work or to print it. Enregistrement_de_l’écran_2020-02-18_à_21_44_48.mov carte_lasseube_municipal.afdesign BAT_Programme_13012020.afpub
  11. Hello, I am facing a problem with exporting a project to transparent PNG. I noticed the problem is only with my smaller dimensions such as 851px x 315 px when i tried to export a bigger dimensions it worked fine. Yet i need the smaller dimension, whats the solution, as my client is waiting for the design.
  12. It would be nice to have an option to disable artboard background during exports. Yeah workaround is to create a layer with background and uncheck it during an export. But I always tend to keep number of layers as low as possible... (moreover Sketch has such an option :)) Thx
  13. In my line of work it is essential that I am able to export my images to 8 bit .BMP Is it possible that this option may be added, or is there a simple alternative....without resorting to PhotoShop?
  14. I'm testing Affinity Designer for the first time and I really like the ease of making complex shapes. I've never been much into Illustrator before, so Affinity is just what I need! I'm looking at the list of export formats and I couldn't find TGA. Don't know whether to think that's strange or not, but for game engines, TGA seem to be used more than I knew before. At the game design school I graduated from, we were encouraged to use TGA for UI elements. I thought that was strange to begin with, but I stuck to it. Now I'm modding a game, and the game wants TGA. It becomes a bit of a hassle to export to something else first and then convert to TGA. Is TGA of any interest for you to support ? I know I'd be super happy, and could make faster iterations with the automated export. Simply make a change in a slice, it exports on the fly, go into Unreal Engine and refresh the asset - bang! Done!
  15. Hi everyone... i have some problem exporting an object that have shadow using AD 1.7.3. Basically i have setted the blending mode of the shadow to Multiply and if i try to export the output seems to have blending mode setted to Normal. This is what the document looks like with blending mode setted to Multiply: This is the exported version: To avoid the problem i have to set the blending mode to Normal and try to get the right darken shadow color.

  16. First: Affinit Designer is really great - thanks to the Affinity team! (Former-time Corel user, then Inkscape, now switched to Affinity due to CMYK and better color management) My request: I often use Save-As to generate numbered versions of files (as backups, and so that when I discuss them with a client, we can refer to which version we are talking about). In the Save As dialog, it appears that AD defaults to the folder where I last saved anything. This is very tricky when working on files that lie in different folders. To me, the current behaviour is somehow unexpected, and I often accidentially store files in the wrong project's folder. The same happens when exporting, to PDF for instance. I can imagine that people might want to always export all PDFs to a certain folder no matter where the curent file is, so maybe we should also consider this use-case. My suggestion is: 1.) Save As: Default to the folder where the current file lies. 2.) Export (pdf etc, but also for palettes): Default to the folder where I last exported the respective file type when the current document was open. (Maybe its not a good idea to store file paths in documents (like the export paths necessary for 2.). For me, it would be ok if this only works for the last, say, 30 files I worked on, so it could be stored somewhere in the application options storage, not in the document files.) Would this cover all use-cases? Best, Philipp
  17. When exporting PDF, some vector elements are missing. The document has linked native Affinity Designer's files embedded. What is weird that those vector elements are missing from those files. Another problem is that it depends on export settings, for example: Profile: Print - properly is exported only cover page, on following pages, are missing certain vector elements. Profile: Export - it seems ok Does any encountered similar problem. So far I do not see the way around...
  18. I think it's a bug with the artboard sizes. Every time I try to export the selected artboard, it changes its dimension by adding/subtracting 1-2 pixels, which I need to set manually. that's quite irritating. This is happening with all the artboards. Check out the screenshot below where it shows the actual size of the artboard bottom right vs the size it prompts on export panel.
  19. When exporting a vector image to SVG, Designer appears to add hundreds of points to a path that aren't there when editing, causing the exported file to balloon many times the size as one exported from illustrator. For example, the Twitter logo contains 20 points on the path in Designer, but after exporting as a SVG it balloons to 1,554 points! Is there anyway to tell Designer to not add points, and to respect the original layout? This is holding me back from dumping Adobe Illustrator completely, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike
  20. Hello, I am working on a JavaScript Manuel reference. I created the table of content in Affinity Publisher and the headings get updated automatically. However, when I export it to PDF, I cannot click on the table of content headings to get me to the spesific area of the page. I also tried to add interactivity to it. But I don't know how ? How can I link the headings when I export in PDF ? Thank you Linking-Headings.mp4
  21. In the PDF export process of Affinity Designer, I have a custom Preset. Is there a way that I can export this so that I can bring it back in at a later date if necessary (e.g. after reinstating a system backup)?
  22. When trying to export my publication, I get an error message saying there was an error on exporting to PDF. If I export as a spread, no error. If I do pages, there's an error. It's a 99 page project, I spent an hour exporting ranges of pages and found if I do 1-84, no error, but 1-85 causes an error. I converted everything on p85 to curves and tried again, still an error. Oddly, I can export 85-99 without an error. So, no idea what's going on here. Help! Shadowrun_Genesys_v1_-_Final.afpub Fonts.7z
  23. Would it be possible to allow some of my export slices to ignore certain layers, but others to include them? I'm often working on multi-layered images for use in games, and every time I export i have to turn off specific layers beforehand. I appreciate the current option to set layers to not be exported, but I'd prefer some more power to limit certain layers to certain slices, so I can export the foreground, middle and foreground objects cleanly.
  24. After exporting a document as PDF, the document gets a white border at the edge on top and on the right hand side. This document has an image as background. When I create a vector, color filled rectangle as background and export it as PDF, there are no borders. What is the reason for this behavior? Original page in AD: Page with border after export as PDF: The rectangle PDF version: Untitled.pdf Thanks, Martin
  25. Hey Guys, I was wondering if there is a way to generate random file names when Batch Processing images. Greetings
