  1. So I’ve been trying to export this picture that I made to PDF and it isn’t working. Random lines show up and letters are missing. Even some of the color that I put in has moved and isn’t showing up. I don’t know what’s going on at all. I’m trying to do PDF print and PDF for export so that I can use this as a logo. All of the layers are normal Would it be better to use PNG instead for printing a logo? I need the vector to come out beautifully. Gin Glow RGB final?.pdf Gin_Glow_RGB_).pdf
  2. Howdy, I have encountered some unexpected behavior when exporting a project into PDF. Went for 1.6, rasterize unsupported features. Not a great issue, as I can currently expand strokes and merge objects, but in case these were smaller objects that I could not spot being badly exported, I could be a problem. Two objects have strokes that also have some elements with raster effects in background. They are either curves or a shape. 1) In case of calendar icon, the transparency of group is lost when exported to PDF and the elements overlapping display higher opacity. When exported t
  3. I am a graphic design professional now retired but still doing side work for a few clients. I dropped Adobe products because I could no longer afford them. This was my first job working with affinity publisher (a 27-page document). I imported an idml file into AP and all went well UNTIL I tried to create a final PDF for my client. Regardless of the kind of PDF conversion I selected, all either had massive type issues (strange letters, missing letters, incomplete letters) and color bars with overlaid type that turned the color bars into color with "ghost shadows/images" of the overlaid type (se
  4. Hello everyone, I'm using affinity publisher to compile my architecture thesis project (full of drawings and pdf as you can imagine) but I just realized that it runs painfully slow. Is there any way to make it faster? I'm on a Lenovo P50, 16gb RAM, Intel Xeon E3-1505M and Nvidia Quadro M2000M (4gb VRAM) that doesn't seems to work while running affinity (strange, as in performance settings it shows up) Thank you for your further replies.
  5. I have just watched Moving from InDesign to Affinity Publisher with Mike Barton and I was very impressed. What I would very much like to see is a companion video showing "Moving design from PagePlusX9 to Affinity Publisher". I am getting the same problems with importing PDFs as he so graphically describes. Unfortunately Markzware does not provide a companion piece of software to make the journey smoother. However a video guide to providing a Master Page and Text styles for this process would be a great help to the rather aduous process of conversion. What about it Affinity, it would make us Pa
  6. I'm cleaning up an old book file. It's a PDF, and there has been characters added in fonts that have to be removed, and color versions of the black-and-white plates inserted. Any suggestions on how to proceed are welcome.
  7. Is it possible to create an interactive document within Affinity Publisher which is able to "collect" a recipient's signature? Specifically what I mean is... I want to create a digital document which I would then send out to people, who would digitally sign it, and send it back to me. I'd be grateful for any advice.
  8. Hello, Hi, Moin! I described my issues regarding the PDF format but they may apply to all other formats and also Images. (In example like improved the linking function etc.) I encountered following bugs: Pdf Bugs Fonts which are used and embedded in the PDF but not installed on the System are not displayed. No matter if PDF is embedded or linked. Preflight notices it but a button only links to the font manager wich shows everything is fine (since it only shows font issues in the afpublisher file). Using the embedded font/font Letters like a
  9. I would like to create a PDF file out of Affinity Publisher without my name in the properties of the PDF. Doing this is possible in WORD: https://www.schieb.de/709301/microsoft-word-pdf-dateien-anonym-speichern I wonder if it is also possible in Publisher. Goetz
  10. Hey guys, i'm trying to fix a pdf for print (Amazon KDP) and need to get a PDF with sharp line art. the original files (images in the affinity document) are high res and sharp. they's 600 dpi and have been converted to bitmap in past so sharp edges no greys etc. but i've spent the last 6 hours trying every variation of PDF in the drop down menu (print, flatten, export, and variations of each, altering all dpi, rastorization settings, compression etc. ) and once exported and opened the images when zoomed in all the way still have soft edges, and in some settings, slight variations in to
  11. I’ve exported a pdf from affinity designer on my Mac and when I try to print it comes up with the error ‘The document could not be saved. An internal error occurred.’ I’m printing other pdfs made outside affinity fine, so it seems to be this specific pdf that’s causing the problems. Does anyone one have any suggestions as to how to fix it? Paddington 2 A3.pdf
  12. I used Affinity Publisher for the first time on a production project, a small quarterly newspaper, after testing it a bit and had to import a few ads and placed them as pdfs inside the document. I didn't even care to check, as this is functionality that should just function, especially on a Mac, as it has a quite intensive relationship with the file format through it's roots in Display PDF. I now got message, why the advertisements were printed wrongly and the fonts were not as sent by the customer. I crosschecked now with Affinity Publisher and - on import - it did exactly as shown in the att
  13. 1. we need to place a pdf as a link. it can be placed but all TEXT inside the pdf are missing because of the font missing. so the placed pdf are technically not linked. so we need an options like that (image pdf linking.png). 2. after placing a pdf some times we have to edit or need to some adjustments so that time we nee to outline the fonts so another option similar to Illustrator FLATTEN TRANSPARENCY required. with both of those we; printers can handle client files easily.

  15. I am quite new to Affinity software but getting used to it. I have been using Publisher to put together A4 documents, with a cover page positioned as a right hand page, then all pages following set up as two page spreads. I am quote happy with how these display on the screen before exporting, but can't seem to export them as they are displayed. I would ideally like it so that when a PDF is exported, the cover page appears as one A4 page, then the following pages are displayed by default as two page spreads of separate A4 pages. The only options I seem to be able to achieve are either all singl
  16. I'm using Affinity Publisher 1.8.584 in Windows 10. (My copy hasn't updated to v. 1.8.585 yet.) When I try to export a file into a particular version of PDF, such as PDF/X-3:2003 (as required by my book publisher/printer), I first select that correct PDF version in the Preset field of the Export Settings box. I then tick the box below that for Include bleed (as my current project is a children's picture book and every page is full-page art set to bleed; by the way, I'm also exporting as pages, not as spreads, though I doubt that affects this issue). I would then expect that the preset for PDF/
  17. Hey! I hope it reaches someone from Serif. My point is that for a lot of us who exclusively use the Affinity Suite, there are such small things that when you need them, they seem like a pain in the ass. Today's example is the option to hyperlink text in Affinity Designer. It bothers specially since I've found other people asking for it even in 2016! So that'd be my request... That we do not end 2020 without the option to be able to hyperlink text in AD. Thanks.
  18. Hello all, I am fairly new to exporting things for different mediums. I have to print several images as window decals so the woman at the print shop is asking for the vector files. Normally I would send as pdf but she says the pdfs and eps I sent are acting as rasterized images and not vector format. Unsure what I am doing wrong. She is offering to vector as a service but I'm hoping to save the money by doing it myself. Seems like it shouldn't be so difficult. Thanks in advance for the help!

  19. 1. Saved logo as EPS (as well as JPG) at 300dpi in Photo. Open logo in Mac Preview and zoom in: logo's text edges look GREAT. 2. BUT after placing logo into Designer and exporting to PDF, and inspecting PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader: logo's text edges are really choppy. Goal: send business card PDF to CMYK printer for business card printing. How do I get a clean logo in PDF? EH300-generic-cmyk-profile-eps.eps Erucae Biz Card - MASTER - test with EPS logo.pdf
  20. Dear Affinity, I have a problem: While exporting a file of 41 pages to pdf, I get a error message: An error occurred when export... I found out the error is on page 13 and 19, both with only pictures. When I delete this pictures, the program made a pdf. No error. I can't find what is the problem. Could you help me? I have to deliver this file to my client soon... The strangest thing is that earlier there was no problem with this file. A few weeks ago I made a proper pdf file. I only changed the first page and then I want to make a new pdf of it. By the way: I love Affinity Publ
  21. Hi! I'm just wondering if there is any solution to my problem. The images I upload are of high quality and look great when I am designing in affinity designer, however, once I export to PDF, only the text seems to remain vector & the quality of the images decrease drastically. Thanks in advance for any help!
  22. PDF export unusable. I have created a brochure. In it I have an isolated image (with transparencies). When exporting, the text above is exported out of focus. The text can still be selected in Acrobat. So it is not rasterized. Several attempts (PDFX-1a, PDFX-4, ...) with a similar result. In some cases, the transparencies were completely removed or the image exported as a gray rectangle. The export as * .tiff works perfectly. In InDesign I always use PDFX-1a for export because all transparencies are removed and there are no problems with the print shop. InDesign easily exports the s
  23. 621/5000 An image in the picture frame. The picture is linked. It has original 4000x6000 pixels. When exporting with 300dpi, the resolution of the image was calculated incorrectly. I can't verify the problem because it doesn't always happen. Explanation picture: 2 picture frames with the same picture on a layout page. Only a different image section can be seen in both. The sections have only a different scaling. (1 = 1838 dpi, 2 = 2337 dpi) The
  24. Hi, I can't export a file as PDF, I get a dialog box with this : "An error occurred while exporting to: <file path>" Actually it is the same problem as this one : https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/16101-exporting-pdf-affinity-designer/ I have the latest Affinity Designer version 1.4.1 I can send my file in a PM if you need it Thank you
  25. Export PDF. I try to make a PDF in Designer (iPad) for printing but the black is always built up! I have tried everything but it does not work. Is there a solution, am I doing something wrong .... or back to Adobe? Because this may / may not If i make an eps it will be fine. It is especially for the plain text that should not consist of a built up color.
