I am suddenly unable to export my Publisher document as a PDF. I don't know why this has suddenly started. I have been playing around quite successfully with this project for about 2 weeks now without any problems. Is there an upper page limit or something like that ? After I got this error message a few times I examined the Pre Flight entries. Because there are so many hyperlinks and strange names that the programme flags up as errors, I have just ignored the pre-flight check until now. Contents entries need updating, so click on 'fix' Then I get told that the links on my master pages are invalid ? I also get an error message to tell me that the contents page needs updating, so I have to remake the Anchor, then re link the 3 master pages. No matter which way I do this I am going round in circles just to arrive at the beginning again. Can anyone help with this ?
This is to follow up earlier questions about using Affinity Publisher documents for books printed via MagCloud. Making the template hasn't been difficult. The unknown information (so far) has to do with the PDF settings. MagCloud has instructions for InDesign but none for Affinity Publisher. I see from other threads that there are people here with experience producing books on MagCloud. I would be much obliged for feedback about this if your time permits. The rest of the post concerns MagCloud's recommendations for InDesign's PDF export settings. The comment I'll add below it contains my guesses about PDF export from Publisher. Settings here are in order of their appearance in the MagCloud instructions. InDesign options for which there don't seem to be equivalents in Affinity Publisher are marked "**" below. (I'm using v. 1.8.2 for Windows.) Pages: All Spreads option: Disabled ** Created tagged PDF: Disabled [But so far PDFs I've exported from Publisher don't seem to be tagged] Export Layers: "Visible and Printable Layers" Hyperlinks: Include [optional] ** Include interactive elements: Disabled For both color and greyscale images: Bicubic downsampling to 300 ppi for images above 300 ppi Compression: JPEG Image quality: High [presumably meaning 80+] For monochrome images: ** Bicubic downsampling to 1200 ppi for images above 1800 ppi ** Compression: CCITT Group 4 The instructions draw particular attention to these next two options, which don't appear in the Publisher export dialog: ** Compress text and line art: Enabled ** Crop image data to frames: Enabled Compatibility: Acrobat 5 (PDF 1.4) Bleed: Include Color conversion: None Profile Inclusion Policy: "Include RGB and all tagged S..."
