  1. Hi, This is probably a silly question but I'm getting all these 'Missing dictionary for language (en-ES)' warnings in Preflight. They are probably harmless, but my Preflight is flooded with them to the point that I cannot find the few other warnings and errors that are sprinkled among them. How can I make these 'Missing dictionary for language (en-ES)' warnings go away? Thanks!
  2. Affinity applications (and other) do not have full support for Variable fonts, the export of which then causes problems, see for example Therefore, it would be good if the Preflight report points out this fact - that the user uses font types that can be problematic. Thanks P.S. And maybe a vector/bitmap Color fonts?
  3. Hello, I'm almost ready with the first book I made with Affinity Publisher and I uploaded to lulu.com for a quick test. I keep getting a warning stating: I opened a thread but at the end I realized it will be a nice feature if Preflight could check if there is text with a size under a predefined value in the document. Ideally it would be nice to set the minimum font size somewhere in the preferences, however checking for anything smaller or equal 5 pt should be helpful enough. Thank you
  4. After completing a publication and creating a PDF, the pre-flight panel remained stuck across the screen. I upgraded to 1.9.1 but it's still there, only it's now grey but in the same shape and position as before. It covers up most of the screen, so I can't use Publisher because I can't see anything behind it. Command +W doesn't work.
  5. I observed this on Affinity Publisher 1.9.0.932 on Windows. I have a document with several linked PDFs. When I export this document to PDF there is a preflight warning for every single linked PDF, stating: The warning appears only for PDFs in "Passthrough" mode and is obviously a false alarm. The linked Sub-PDFs are not rasterised in any kind in the exported PDF. This is not a big deal, since the result is as desired, but the warnigs are a bit distracting (especialy if you have many linked PDFs in your document). I attached a simple document Example.afpub which contains
  6. Either I've found some weird bug, or I'm doing something wrong. My Preflight says that "The document index needs updating." and provides a "Fix" button. However, every time I mash the button, nothing happens other than additional entries showing up in the Index Panel (but not on the page). The error remains, and the Index Panel resets itself back to one entry per after a few moments. (see screenshots attached) If I delete the frame with the entry, the error still remains. I have only 1 index and 1 table of contents inserted in the entire document. Am I missing something her
  7. When exporting a document to certain formats, typically PDF, there is sometimes an undesirable and for user surprising rasterization of vector objects and texts. For example, when using Blend Mode Multiply, see Therefore, it would be very useful, when the Preflight check allowed a warning, that these objects will be rasterized during export. Thank you
  8. A couple days ago I asked about the value of pdfTool in a Quark forum. One comment was unexpected in that they pointed out that the tool is especially good for adding to a Publisher workflow in that it hasn't been around as long and may need a little more help than mature products like Quark and InDesign. That one perspective alone almost justified it's $500+ price tag. I wanted to know have other people found that those two products work really well together? Publisher is the only tool in the suite I haven't explored extremely in depth and I haven't even installed pdfToolbox yet. I like
  9. Prior to exporting my document to PDF, preflight said TOC needed updating. I hit the FIX option and Publisher crashed. I have version 1.8.5.703 on Windows 10.
  10. for Affinity Publisher Request: For prepress workflows it would be very helpful to switch to a preflight mode where you can quickly check what objects are on which colour plates (eg. spot colours) Problem: Sometimes there are shadow-effects or overlaying colours and multiplying images that change the otherwise clean constructed set of elements in your layout. For example, you know every text has this global colour and every icon has that corporate-design colours, but where things overlap and blend, you need to know "how dark this black really is" to be successfully printed.
  11. As you can see from the image the preflight missing font is not showing in the font manager. Be great if it can be added to your fix list thanks Mike
  12. Hello everyone, I am writing an instruction book for my Taekwondo students. To translate some of the Korean words I have used phonetically spelled English words for example "Kyungnet (sounds like Kunray) means Bow". Unfortunately, there is no universally agreed way to "spell" these translations and consequently I have saved a few different versions of the phonetically spelled English version when I have right clicked and selected Learn Spelling. I would like to ensure that all my "mis-spelled" words are consistently spelled the same way. I guess sci-fi writers have a similar issue w
  13. I have a customized Mac with an English MacOS version and a Norwegian keyboard, since I am Norwegian. However, much of the DTP work I do on Affinity Publisher is in English. A big project I'm working on at the moment is entirely written in English. However, when I run the Preflight check I get a mile long list stating: I have followed the instructions here but the problem is that I cannot find any dictionary named (en-NO). And I have switched on every Norwegian and English dictionary in System Preferences in my MacOS and restarted Affinity Publisher, but the error messages persi
  14. The Preflight panel shows missing fonts. The 'Fix' option provides the ability to locate the missing font. However there is no facility to make a font substitution permanent, and therefore no longer displayed as an error. Please provide the ability for font substitutions to be accepted as permanent, enabling users to permanently dismiss a preflight issue relating to a particular substituted font.
  15. I have the following problems with the upgrade of 1.8.1 which I did directly from the same Publisher programmme. 1. Prepapring a PDF for printing with 1.8.1 ends up weighing not twice but three times more! I had to make a correction on a document I made last year that weighed only 274 MB. I made a correction on the text, and now the same document, following the same settings I used before when exporting as a PDF file for prining, weighs 1,23 GB!!! 2. Problems importing PDF files into your document. This problem I've had since the very beginning with every Affinity programme. I produc
  16. This has happened early in the 1.8 beta and had already been fixed. Now, again, the preflight panel is missing. Serious question to Affinity staff: Does anybody of you use separated mode at all? (It always seems like you don't care that much...) Anyways, thank you for this otherwise awesome new release!
  17. I love how Affinity Publisher turned out. Can we except something similar to the Preflight panel in InDesign? Thanks for the hard work!
  18. Hi, thanks for the good work on the Affinity products! Having spent some first moments on tuning in with Affinity publisher I'm missing a preflight checker. That's why I have the following feature request: User Stories: As an Affinity Publisher user I would like Affinity Publisher to check whether my document layout and the document content fulfills before-configured criteria in order to not export unwanted documents. I would like Affinity Publisher to provide sane default values/configurations for the below-mentioned checks. I would like Affinity Publisher to enable me
  19. Dear Affinity Users and Developers We’re just in the process of evaluating Affinity Publisher (tested with 1.7.0.305 and 1.7.0.312) and we’ve come upon a problem with the PDF/X export: In our workflow our print PDF files are checked in Adobe Acrobat against the preflight profile PDFX-ready Sheetfed Offset Classic HQ V1.5. Among other things this profile checks the MD5 checksums of the used ICC profile against a pre-defined list of profiles known to be appropriate for offset printing. When exporting a PDF as PDF/X-1a with the ICC profile ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) from Affinity Pub
  20. I know that similar subjects were posted on this forum before in different places, but now when time to public beta of Publisher is near, I think it's good to remind this. To unleash the whole power of Affinity Range, we need proper pro printing tools, like good preflight, good colour management, ink coverage measurement... Simply, all what is industry standard for this kind of work. I think that all these tools should be quite similiar (at least at some major points) to Adobe products. (For now, people designing for example in AD, must also use Adobe Acrobat Pro, pdfToolbox or other s
  21. Hello, Sry, i agree i'm a bit LAZY and not go thru thoroughly through the ocean of the forum, but still searching in a zippy i didn't found my answers, hence writing this ticket. 1. if Team-A wanna fix some error in their Adobe creation by forwarding the project to Team-B with all legal acceptance (via their Affinity product), do team-B need to start over from "Zero" as no support for Adobe's working file extensions? 2. Any Error Fixing/Analysing tools to compete with Adobe's PREFLIGHT, COMPARE(Check out 4th compare tool of Power Styles from Blatner for eg.), Etc. 3. Any Su
