  1. In an attempt to get my head around Publisher’s PDF export behavior (compared to Adobe’s which I’m rather familiar with), I stumpled upon this thread which only tackles some of my problems: Some settings in the export process (under File > Export > PDF > More) don’t seem fully developed yet, so I hope to find some clarity here: PDF/X-1a: The standard only allows CMYK and spot colors, so the options “As document” and “Grayscale” don’t make much sense, right? PDF/X-4: The standard allows several color models, but if I want to output CMYK-only (despite enjoying other X-4 possibilities), then I’d expect the option “CMYK” to yield a CMYK-only PDF. This only happens as expected if I choose to “rasterize everything” which is never a true option with my kind of projects. In other words: Why can I choose between three options when according to standards there’s only one possible result (= X-1a), and why is there only one result when according to standards there would be at least three options (and Publisher lets me even choose) (= X-4)? What part of the story did I miss, or am I just too deep into Adobe thinking to realize that what’s going on here is perfectly reasonable? Or is it really? Is it like “take it or leave it” – if I want CMYK-only files, I have to deal with losing transparencies and all in X-1a, and if I want e.g. transparency maintained, I have to accept all other X-4 possibilities not as options but as obligations? I admit I’m very used to (and have grown very fond of) the Adobe approach of being able to throw anything into a layout regardless of resolution, color model, file format, and ICC profile – and only having to decide in the very last seconds what to get on the far end. Thanks a lot for any insight!
  2. Hey, every time i export an .svg from AD to Figma, it always resizes to shrink the .svg image inside of one pixel. I'm new to AD and I'm only having this problem in AD. It's like it resizes itself in an export or something. Please check out this loom video of me going through all the steps. https://www.loom.com/share/90672ad2e6d94c6d9018f4b80aeb4c46 How can I export an .svg from AD that is 45x75px (or whatever) and it show up the same in Figma without me having to completely resize from a single pixel sized .svg?
  3. 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!
  4. Publisher Beta, v1.7.0.293 for Mac: 15" MBP (2017), Mojave v10.14.4, 2.9GHz i7, 16Gb ram Since the latest Publisher update, whenever attempting to export pages from Publisher Beta, Atom (code editor) opens "tempimage_#.ext" files. I have not opened or modified Atom since prior to the last Publisher update. I have since disabled all Atom packages and restarted my entire system with no change in behavior. This happens for Publisher projects with one, several, and many pages... I am using master templates on all pages and have not confirmed if this occurs when not using templates. Additionally when in the export dialogue and I select a different file type to export to, Atom opens more windows. The export has been working despite this behavior.
  5. The text for export, especially .psd, should be fully editable, no matter if the text is curved, stretched or rotated. Maybe even if a FX is applied, but I guess that's a minor point. The lack of this feature is a major drawback IMO. Many of my clients need to edit the text themselves and most use PS. I know a lot of artists who need this feature.
  6. Hey! I'm having problem with Hexa colour, when exporting it ! So when I try to export something with the #808080, it usually becomes #7f7f7f. On my test, the #7f7f7f can become something else To check, I'm using the colour picker inside Firefox. I tried with Gimp too, same crazy result ! The goal was to use it as an alpha channel... in Gimp, because it can export it to a game texture .dds DXT5. The only format that can be ok to export the #808080 was on my case .gif Gray. You will be able to find all my files in the .zip file attached, to check the colour exported, and the .afphoto to be sure ! If gray file, I can't make #808080, or a pure 50% black............. Do I need to understand something I don't know ? Thx for your help ! 808080.7z Here are different export from the same file, you can use the browser colour picker if you want
  7. Hi all I quite happy with how I go about setting the pivot point on a shape in Affinity Designer. However, when I export the design to SVG, I want the pivot points to be saved as part of the shape as well. My aim is to rotate items using Javascript in the browser and I need that point, to pivot around (imagine a rectangle for a clock hand or something similar). Is this something I can do in Affinity Designer as part of exporting the shapes? Thanks
  8. The bleed area on an image shows a darker tint when exported to pdf. Pierre70-uitnodiging-outline.pdf
  9. As someone who transferred to Affinity Designer upon launch, ditching the traditional Adobe Products that most of the industry utilizes I am, for the most part, thrilled with incorporating Affinity Designer into my workflow. However, there are two features that I have been longing for. The first of which is the incorporation of editable text in an exported PSD. Some clients desperately want the PSD files of all of the work in the final form, and documents with tons of text present an issue as all text now exports as a pixel layer. I know it is a huge coding ordeal, but it would be such a huge asset to us all. Please, in your next update try to incorporate this feature for your dedicated designers using your design programs so that we are not forced to find ridiculous workarounds. Secondly, I would love to see an option for batch exporting of artboards to save them as the individual artboard name in a dedicated folder. So much of my time is spent opening a new document and placing the contents of each artboard individually on a new canvas and saving them for client work. A batch save option would be extremely helpful, especially if the same options are available there like the ones currently available in the export menu.
  10. Hello. Tell me please, is it possible to export files drawn on the iPad in EPS format, if there are objects with different transparency in the file, so that these objects remain vector? I tried to export such a file, all objects become raster.
  11. I need some clarification on color modes available in Photo. Namely the RGB/16, is it integer or float and if float then how can I input colors below 0 or above 1? And then there is RGB/32 HDR, is it integer or float, and if float, how can I input colors below 0 and above 1? Also are these modes linear or gamma corrected? Another thing is the export to Open EXR (when I choose More... options). I can choose from 16 bit half and 32 bit float, what is 16 bit half, is it integer or float? One more thing: I have some HDR and EXR files, which I'm certain contain values above 1 (32-bit float), but Photo shows them as 1 (ie. 255 in each RGB channel in the Info panel). How to show the true value, if it's above 1 or below 0?
  12. Hello designers and support. I've noticed something wrong with embedded .afdesign documents into artboard. In design, I using placed (for example logotypes) documents and after export as JPG or PDF file, those parts are empty, before update everything was fine. I use presets created before and the layers aren't hidden in export persona. What I do wrong? Thanks in advance for any answers.

    Mangled Font Issue - PDF Export

    Two of us in the studio are running Affinity Designer 1.6 (latest update) on Mac OSSierra but seeing identical PDF issue when exporting. 1. New and legacy AFDesign files are manifesting same behavior when we try and export PDFs (using out of the box settings) 2. Fonts appear correctly in Affinity Designer but the only way we can export files and not have the messed up files is to export Text as Curves (not ideal) 3. We're running two separate computers with local versions of all fonts. Both computers have separately licensed versions of the software too. Exact same behavior in terms of corrupt / malformed PDF output. (See attached images) Please help — this has only appeared since 1.6 update. We rely on AFFINITY DESIGNER for client deliverables. Thx.
  14. Hi guys, I need to help; i don't know if this is an Affinity Designer bug or is a my issue: I've a file (X) into there's an embedded file (Y), when i export the file (X) in the space where should be there the embedded icons (Y) there is nothing, do you know why? where am I wrong? Below the example, the icons (Indicated with red arrows) in the file (X) is an ambedded component (File Y), when i export the file (X), the export is without the icons . I hope that someone can help me, thanks! ❤ (Software: Affinity Designer Retail, OS: Windows)
  15. In AP for windows then you export image (File -Export) the default pop-up window "Export settings" lets you make some fine tuning and then you press [ Export...] button and "Save as..." dialogue with the last used directory opens. Some times you need to save alternative copy of the image at the same location as original. Some times within dedicated export folder. So it could be a pain to jump through all the places. It would be nice to 1) have this special dedicated catalog in preferences (or even better in presets) 2) let user choose with special switch were to store file : last used folder save with original (editable file name with auto rename rule and no influence on the last used folder) save within dedicated export folder Or at least it could be just one more button next to [ Export...] which will sounds something like [Save with original]

    SVG Problem

    As the screenshot, why the SVG export includes this white square? It won't show on png file. What did I miss? Thanks for any suggestion. svgproblem.afdesign
  17. While I was working in Publisher I was exporting a document as a PDF but I wanted to see how to export each spread as a single file. I clicked on the PNG tab and then tried to select pages to export... immediately the app switched to Atom (a text editor) and tabs just started opening up. This is what they looked like: Not sure what else to say about it.
  18. I'd love to purchase Affinity Designer, however, it doesn't solve the one problem that I need solved. That is to export into Xaml format. Xaml is the Visual Studio programmers version of SVG. Solve that one, and I'm sure you'll have lots of developers and/or UX developers wanting a copy of this software. Thanks, Mike
  19. Hi... I have a problem.... I'm trying to export a design as a PDF but one of the images is missing... but this only happen when i export in PDF, if the export is made in PNG works fine.. I'm using the 1.6.51.135 version. Check the video please. https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cqfXXzZoRp
  20. I am creating a nebula backgroud. The affinity image is looking good, but when i try and export the image or merge the bottom but one layer I get something totally different. Nothing appears to allow me to get the 1st image
  21. I like to export PDFs that are set for initial view of Single Page & Fit Page. Is there any way of setting that option directly in Affinity Designer (Windows)? Thanks!
  22. Hi, I've recently purchased Affinity Photo 1.6.11 (running on macOS 10.14.4.) I'm having a problem similar to the one described here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/63849-photo-batch-processing-does-not-save/. But I'm not using Default Folder X as the OP was. After pressing OK, the New Batch Job dialog disappears instantly and doesn't seem to do anything. When I examine the output folder in Finder, the file is not there. Thanks
  23. Could DXF export be added as a export option. I sometimes have have to send my designs to a CNC and vinyl cutting shop. There preferred format is DXF. It would be great not to have to import my design into cad program before sending it them. I currently use this feature in illustrator and it works nicely.
  24. Hi Forum, there's an issue when exporting a slice. When you activate "Continuous", export your picture and change after this something on your picture nothing will happen. Something in rare cases the exported picture updates after a long period of time and sometimes it just updates after you saved your Affinity File (which is annoying if you want to export it only one time and you need to save your file to do that, even if you don't want to edit your file in the future). Please fix this problem
  25. Having resampled my images in Affinity Photo to 300ppi using Resize Document, they refuse to export at that resolution (I've tried JPG and TIFF), always reverting to 72ppi. What am I doing wrong, if anything?
