  1. Hello All, I have created an architecture portfolio with Affinity Publisher. When starting and completing the initial draft this summer everything was running smoothly. I opened it after not touching it for a couple months and now the file is basically untouchable. Every click presents the an issue of the apple scrolling wheel and lag that last for 15 mins plus. I am using the most up to date version of the desktop app and my imac specs will be attached below. I am also leaving my file here to see if its a bug with my file. Can this be coming from my Imac or issues with the app itself?
  2. Hi guys, Im working on very big document (hundreds of pages) with many images and lately I found an issue with the page break. Let me show you an image: On the left you can see two linked pages with one paragraph of text. On the right - is an original text pasted into Publisher. As you can notice, the highlighted text is not shown in Publisher - it goes out of frame. It looks like page break is done one text line too late. And the was pasted wuthout formatting (Ctrl + Alt + Shift + V) so it's not the issue here. I didn't find any s
  3. I'm working on a MacBook Air with Affinity Designer 1.7.3. I have created a fairly large Affinity Designer file, in large part through stupid/lazy decisions that I didn't keep track of. I have been meaning to go in and simplify the file but before I could I seem to have hit a limit that Affinity Designer can't open the file. I last successfully opened When I try to open it, the readout says "loading one document" for hours. Meanwhile the recorded amount of free storage space on my Macbook gets smaller and smaller as the "System" block grows. The file I'm trying to open is 117.8MB bu
  4. Affinity Photo Windows 10 v1709 build 16299.248 16GB RAM vram 8GB dedicated, 8 shared, nvidia 980M File: on disk .jpg 1,635KB. In A. Photo: 4002x2711px 1085MP PHOTOSHOP: reports the filesize as 31.3MB in ram (I don't know if that is relevant.) When opened in Affinity Photo, the viewport of the image appears corrupt and pixels change color as mouse is moved around the image. See attached picture. The second image is the original. This does not happen when the same file is opened in PhotoPlusX8 or in Photoshop 6.0 (yes, I am still using 6) or any other image viewing/edi

  7.

  8. I am having problems exporting a file as a PDF. I use the export option, and select PDF for print and it creates and saves a PDF file, but when I try to view it in adobe. (And our printer tries to view it in his program), it is a blank page. (It is the right dimensions of the page at least) 3RiversforPrintingWetSizeExportTest.pdf 3RiversforPrintingWetSizeExportTest6.pdf 3RiversforPrintingWetSize.afdesign
  9. Hi, I was recently working on a project for a large format print of 352" X 118" at 100 DPI. This is an image that is printed on a vinyl wall covering. Throughout the process of storing and closing the file, I was faced with really long delays and at one point, lost the whole content of the file while closing it. The file was in the 565MB size which is large, granted, but I ended up having to re-process the files in Photoshop to save them in .TIFF and PDF. Now I am not sure why Affinity Photo had such a problem handling such a large file, but perhaps optimizing memory management is something
  10. Hello, 1st post! I've been using Affinity Photo for the past few months and really enjoy it. I'm not a trained designer so there a probably a number of things I don't yet know how to do correctly, however I think the issue I am having presently may be a bug or it could be that there is a better way for me to do something. At the moment I am making a billboard image 3.6m by 2.4m. I had no problems in the design process but now it crashes when I try to export it. I've tried to export it from both Affinity Photo and also from Affinity Design. It crashes whether I try to export as a PDF/PS
  11. Hi there, What format should I save a large affinity design file to be sent to a printer and turned into a banner? I've been creating a banner for the local karate club, on and off, for some time now. I had to come onto this forum before regarding some issues with the stability of it, which have been sorted now... We've finally got it to where we like it, and would like to send it to the printer for a sample and ultimately printing. The banner is to be five metres wide and just under a meter tall. Every file I've sent them so far, they've been unable to open, has appeared pixelat

  13. I have a quite large file in AP, sized A2 filesize about 140megabytes. Choosing Export to pdf and the destination goes alright, but then nothing happens. It just shows the progress bar which never gets anywhere. I waited a couple of minutes and force quit the app. Export to jpg goes alright.

  15. Hello, I have a large problem with Affinity: - when i decide to export my file as JPEG, the whole program crashes ... always ... - When i decide to export as PDF, the file is more than 1.5 GB (!) - the content of the file are just two little b/w pictures (one vector, one bitmap). The affinity file (*.afdesign) is just 1.8 MB. The same is with printing as PDF (result: 1.5 GB). Normal printing needs 10 or more minutes ... I use a mid 2012 Mac Book Pro Retina with Yosemite Thanks for helping me ...
