  1. Preflight at the printers warns that the PDF does not overprint black even though the option "Overprint black" was selected when exporting. I don't have Acrobat, so I can't check it. Attached is a sample source file, exported pdf and export settings screen. Please check and confirm. If confirmed, report an error. Link Dropbox for source file https://www.dropbox.com/s/fgz70g1y6mmxom3/Test_DLx3.afpub?dl=0 Link Dropbox for PDF file https://www.dropbox.com/s/qfrjiizopxj3fkg/Test_DLx3.pdf?dl=0 I apologize for my English - Google translate.
  2. Just answered a post and considered a few additions to the swatches panel. When right-clicking on a colour fill swatch you have the option to Make Global effectively changing a fill colour to a global colour, but, once a colour has been converted to a global colour, that global colour should have its own context menu that would include... Make Global Spot Make Global Overprint Revert Global (this would revert the colour swatch back to a global fill that can be used to change colours within a document en masse)
  3. Hi I known this issue has been discussed before but I don't seems to make overprint work. Basically I have set my text to overprint 100% black in global colors but my pdf output shows the background color is being knockout by the text. Traditionally the background should be in solid when text are set to overprint. Please help. Thanks Tristan overprint test.pdf
  4. Hi Affinity Team This is a follow up from what I mentioned above... I have set the global colour to 80% black and ticked "overprint", but when I few my press-ready artwork in Acrobat Distiller and turn off the Black (Separations) it is knocking it out from the background colour instead of the assigned "overprint" it should be doing so the background colour is preserved! This is a biggie so please please please don't forget about it! The "overprint" is not working! Thanks.
  5. Hi Affinity Team This is a mammoth task but a great start with Affinity Publisher! I'm constantly moving pre-press artwork across to my preferred printer and I'm asking them to give me feedback and review with the pre-press ready PDF files I'm sending them and the major issues that they are reporting is... - issues around knockout and overprint... this is not really that straight forward for now plus not clear in how this can be picked up before exporting the artwork? - and when they need to impose the job and they use InDesign for that, hence the following comment..." I'm also getting some weirdness when placing the file into indesign for when we impose the job" Other then that keep up the great work! Thanks.
  6. Would be nice, if the overprinting property could be selected object-wise and not globally over the color swatch. When you do artworks for RISO it happens that you layer objects of the same spot color and some should overprint and some not. Of course, I can add a second spot color but the problem is that I get duplicated colors in the pdf later on which leads to some pain combining them for printing. B
  7. Overall Publisher seems to have many features. But their workflow with spots inks is pretty weak or simply don't work. I know Affinity just released the first beta; indeed, this is just the time to request this. Many proffessional works are done with spot inks (maybe a background hard to print in CMYK, maybe they need a rich orange/green/blue ink). Also the little works, due to be cheap using only two spot inks instead of full CMYK. Things to be implemented or improved: - We need a more streamlined workflow with spot inks. Currently it's a pain. We don't have a way to see all current colours of the document (spot inks or any other color); we can only have the option to create a custom palette wich don't works with spot inks (it converts your spot inks to color space document colors -CMYK in my case-). Currently, the most easy way to see your document spot inks it's export to PDF and open your exported file with Acrobat Proffessional. - We need overprint control. This is a must. - Object styles don't export when you use spot inks. - Publisher considers spot inks as "unsupported features" when you export PDF. This converts all you vector works (external documents placed) with spot inks to images, even with PDFX 3 preset. Disabling "convert to image unsupported features" allows to export your linked vector files with spot inks. - Publisher don't recognize AI, EPS colours, spot inks or CMYK. Tested with Illustrator 8 files. Things to be implemented in future updates: - Ink preview options will be very appreciated. Specially overprint and ink separations (just as Indesign and Illustrator). Sorry for any misspell, i'm not a native english speaker. BTW there's some spanish bugs, i will report them when fully translated betas are released.
  8. Hi I was wondering if there was any consideration of including object level overprint selection in the near future? I recently had to do some tricky overprint settings for a packaging project, and in the end I had to make copies of pantone colors one overprinted the other not and then apply the colors to the objects as requited.. unlike illustrator where you can set all the elements to the spot color then just apply overprint to the relevant elements, I hope that made sense. Cheers
  9. Hello! after Adobe pulled another stunt (with Lightroom this time) I'm preparing for an Adobe Free Future™! I've come back to Designer (ßeta 1.6/12) — and what I saw made me very, very happy. Cannot wait till I see what you guys do with Publisher! As you have guessed I'm still missing some features before I can ditch Illustrator all together: selecting objects by type/look (see screenshots with Graffix Select Menu) lockable guides and the making guides from objects. Also: split in to grid. overprint on a per object (fill/stroke) base (not only in the swatches). ability to choose a font (and other things) from the contextual menu. Despite its name, it's not very contextual right now. plugins/scripting would make Designer much more powerful of course. See for example what you can do with Python in DrawBot of Nodebox offset path (could be scripted?) more transform options like "transform each", which is very, very handy in Illustrator … Anyway, can't stress enough that you guys already did a fantastic job, making such a powerful app from zero. …without the income of subscription-model ;-). Keep up the good work! — Benjamin
  10. In this user request I will demonstrate how to work with cut lines and the overprint function of Affinity Designer 1.6.0. You need this functions for printing and cutting stickers with custom shapes. You can download the Affinity Designer project file of the tutorial here: https://goo.gl/JT7yQh Keep on drawin' Norbert
  11. Hi, does Affinity allow for: 1. Overprint - I need to overprint certain colours for final print output. 2. Overprint Preview 3. Separations Preview - this is vital in seeing the final output of colours prior to going to print (other than printing physical seps). 4. Spot Colours - In the interim, does Affinity support spot colours - even if its not Pantone Book colours, I then can name it a pantone for the printers reference.
  12. Hi, I'm working on a project that has a selective white undercoat, then a graphics (image layer) background texture, and then text / lines on top. I want the text/lines to 'knock out' the graphics image but not the white undercoat. If I set the 'overprint' option on the text color, then it doesn't cut out the graphics layer, but if I don't set it, then it knocks both the graphics and the white undercoat. Is there some way e.g. to set the 'image' to also get knocked out, or some other easy way to do this? Thanks. -Mike
  13. Hi How to keep overprint in the imported pdf file? I placed PDF with applied overprint to strokes and fils to AD file. After export to PDF X4 overprints (except black) failed. Any idea how to prevent it? Thank you for your help in this matter.
  14. Hi, I am currently on Beta, so it may be just solved. Problem is, when I export artwork created with Pantone to PDF (with honor Pantone color ON), it is converted to CMYK in the final PDF file (sample files attached, checked with pitstop which shows CMYK). Second is my question regarding overprints. I understand how to set overprint to a color, but is there any way how to see actual result (like when I have one rectangle 100% Cyan, second overprinted it with 100% Yellow, it should display nice green :-). Thanks for tips. BS Sava Kubias test-overprint.pdf pantone-test.afdesign
  15. Hello; I'm coming from Illustrator; first time using the app. Where is overprint preview, or what is the Affinity equivalent? thanks!
  16. When I create a global color and set it to overprint and then export as a PDF it doesn't actually overprint. What does the overprint option actually do? Also, during PDF export the option to "overprint black" doesn't seem to do anything either. Maybe I'm missing something.
