  1. PDF export fails when a linked image has no embed color profile (Message failed to export once progress bar reach the end). It was getting me crazy. First i had to export the pdf page by page until i find the offending object resides. Checked all images on that page. Then simply opening the image in Photo, letting it automatically assign a color profile and saving the image with the new profile embed solves the issue. It failed both on default PDF settings and my custom setting. Publisher 1.4.8 Mac under Catalina last.
  2. I think I've had this issue for a while now... Objects with Multiply and edge softening (like Gaussian blur) get this annoying "halo" when exported to PDF using any CoatedFOGRA icc. This used to work. But somewhere on the way with the updates this started to appear. If exported with Generic CMYK profile all blends in nicely (see attachment). But Fogra just spoils everything. If I change the blending mode to normal, all is well. But any other Blending mode just breaks it.
  3. Hello, I bought Affinity Photo on June 18, 2020 and it came with a 105 page downloadable pdf tutorial book. I looked through the book, but now am unable to access it or even find it. Where would I go to get that pdf, please?
  4. When you export a document to a PDF and then upload it to a printer site, it can be seen that there are "Annotations" in the PDF and some printer sites have to remove those annotations. It only happens in the Table of Contents pages, and the Index pages. It would seem that the annotations might be something that AFPUB needs to know about and use, but I'm not sure if a PDF can benefit from using them. I explored one of the PDFs I generated and Adobe Acrobat did not find any Annotations in the PDF, but a printer site did. If you don't need to generate them into the PDF, it might be a good idea to remove them as the PDF is exported.
  5. I found the Fields Tab, allowing me to change the Author, Title and Subject etc. However I'm designing templates and I would like to also change the PDF document restrictions. Changing the defaults from what is and is not allowed. Is there a way? I'm aware that Acrobat PRO can do that, but I would like to not use Adobe programs anymore. Thanks. Linda
  6. Hello, There is a problem when importing / placing a PDF created by Sibelius (Music Notation software) . The PDF (see attached example) looks different from the original. Sibelius creates PDF 1.4 I´m working on Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Publisher 1.8. Everything looks good in QuarkXpress.
  7. While the ability to edit PDFs is nice, I would also like the ability to embed a PDF without it being "translated"/"interpreted". To have "PDF pass-through". If Publisher could access the fonts embedded in the PDF, that would be AWESOME; I don't always have the fonts installed that are used in PDFs, and the entire purpose of the format is to be able to share a layout without having to install fonts to see it displayed correctly.
  8. I have produced a pdf version of the Affinity Photo manual that you can read without starting the program. It can be interesting to put it on your phone or tablet to read when you have some time to spare. Since the file is too big to upload here, I have put it on Dropbox for you to download. It is current for the last version of Affinity Photo. Comments welcomed. Here is the link: https://dropbox.com/s/d3uxmmypdx9ruzw/Affinity%20Photo%20Manual.pdf?dl=0
  9. Aliya Little Flower bee Arabic 6k square.afdesignI create personalised designs using Arabic. Since Affinity does not support Arabic natively I either use pre-prepared .svg curves to represent arabic letters or more usually I use an Arabic font in Pages to write the name in the correct colour, export to .pdf, then place within my design. Then I would double click on the placed file and a new tab would appear for that file, which I could then go to and delete the background from so only my original Arabic text remained. However I have just started using Designer on a new laptop and can't seem to do this any more, I'm not sure if this is something to do with the file linking settings. After I place my pdf file within my document I can only crop it but I can't remove the background so the Arabic text is sitting on a rectangle chunk taken out of the original design. What am I doing wrong?
  10. One of the things I need to do after outputting to PDF is check the PDF page boxes are correct before sending to a printer. (The boxes are: Media, Trim and Crop, and occasionally Bleed and Art.) I don't need to edit the boxes, just quickly visualize them and check the numbers (dimensions). This can be done with Acrobat Pro (or PitStop Pro in Acrobat) but I'm trying to dump my Adobe subscription and move to Affinity-only. My question then: is there any way in any of the Affinity tools to display existing page box layout and dimensions for a PDF? Opening PDFs in both Designer and Publisher, I feel like the information is probably there, but I can't locate it. Any suggestions? Thanks for you time!
  11. Hello, when exporting a PDF from Publisher, I've noticed very poor text rendering when viewing in Acrobat. The quality improves and the letter forms (in this case Franklin Gothic) look more natural once zoomed in, but you have to zoom a long way. The dots in "i"s are joined to make them look like "l"s and the curved parts of letters like "s" look particularly awful. Attached is a spread from the original in Quark which is superiour, as well as a version made in Publisher. I've gone for standard settings for the PDF. I'd like a smooth transition to Publisher, but I fear my client will not be too pleased when viewing a proof PDF made in Publisher. Any tips? Thank you.

  12. Dear Affinity service team, I've got a PDF by an editorial office of a newspaper. The fonts in this PDF are embedded (they are not converted into paths). If I open this PDF in Affinity Photo, I don't get the original fonts of the PDF document but replacement fonts. Sometimes, I have to convert a PDF into a pixel image. It's very important, that the embedded fonts remain im my pixel image. If I open this PDF in Adobe Photoshop instead, I got the original fonts of the PDF. This shows me, that it is possible to maintain the embedded fonts. OS: Windows 7
  13. Why, when exporting an Affinity Publisher document to PDF, a specific page is completely rasterized (texts, vector graphics, etc.), and the other pages keep texts as texts and vector graphics as such? I need the texts to be kept as texts and the vector graphics as vector graphics, because if I export to a small PDF, if the text is rasterized in low resolution, it is almost unreadable and it looks ugly. Anyone ever happened something similar?
  14. I have created an extensive document with many PNGs with transparency. I want to provide and compress them as PDF eBook. However, with normal printing of the compressed PDFs, the images are printed with a black background. This does not happen when printing uncompressed PDFs. Here the printout and the file:
  15. SInce I switched to Publisher for all my CMYK work, I thought it might be time to do the same with a project using two spot colors. But I can't find a useful way to work with it. When using overprint properties Indesign makes it possible to do that per object (line or fill). I think it would be ok, to do it upside down, like the user guide of Publisher is promoting. That would mean to make a copy of a color swatch (one overprintig, one knocking out) and to use these on all objects as one wishes. And it does even work when outputing a PDF. But there is one thing missing - a preview of how my layout actually looks when overprinting, simple WYSIWYG (I'm not even speaking about a separation preview). So that is not very useful. With CMYK colors it's quite easy - you can just use layer modes (multiply) - see, what you are doing and even get it exported in a controlled way, when using the right PDF export settings. But with spot colors I didn't get any of these exported, they always change to CMYK. I've tried all possible ways (my document is CMYK, FOGRA39 and exporting as X4, X3 or other variants didn't help; of course honour spot colors is on). Any ideas? Has anybody a real workflow for that? Thanks for any help!!
  16. Any ideas why this is? I can't work it out. Affinity_Help.mov
  17. It's been well-observed that the Affinity Suite 'doesn't support' the import of PDFs with embedded fonts, and attempting to do so causes a variety of issues. However, Designer imports EPS and PostScript files with embedded fonts perfectly accurately, because it outlines all the embedded font data. It would solve a great many problems if Designer offered the option to outline the embedded font data, as for EPS files, in the PDF import dialog. I'm presuming that this would be a 'relatively easy fix', as Designer can already outline EPS at import, (and it can outline font data in PDFs when exporting).
  18. I'd be very interested in understanding how Publisher will address accessibility in their exported PDFs. Currently there is no way to tailor a document to export a PDF with any acknowledgement of A11y. I appreciate that it's early days. I just hope it hasn't been left too late. InDesign has been trying to address it, but it too was appalling in its early versions. I expected that a progressive new app might be thinking about this and build it in from the very beginning — after all we are building documents for screen so often, we can't just ignore the requirements of so many.
  19. Hallo, sehr mühlselig sich hier durchzuwurschteln bei den englischen Tonics und konfusen Antworten über "CutContour" und Co.Es ist sehr umständlich; habe in einem test-Dokument es auch geschafft den Haken für Schmuckfarbe zu aktivieren aber beim Erzeugen des Pdfs ist es wieder als "normale" Druckfarbe erschienen. Damit leider unbrauchbar und scheinbar ein Fehlkauf als "Illustrator" Ersatz wie ich dachte und zuvor gelesen habe. Ich suche eine Farbpalette (die ich selbst anlegen kann; was auch funktioniert) mit eigenst anlegebaren Sonderfarben wie Spot1 (=White Ink) oder CutContour u.a. Es scheint mir noch nicht ganz so ausgereift zu sein, oder hat jemand eine Idee?!🙃 LG Tommy laut der "Hilfe" soll es funktionieren: Schmuckfarben Wenn Sie globale Farben komplett neu definieren, können Sie diese Farben auch als Schmuckfarben festlegen. Info: Schmuckfarben Bei der professionellen Druckausgabe lassen sich anstelle der CMYK-Prozessfarben auch Schmuckfarben verwenden, wenn Ihr Design nur ein begrenztes Set an Farben enthält. Indem Sie diese Farben als Schmuckfarben definieren, können Sie die Druckkosten deutlich senken. Durch die Umwandlung lassen sich ebenfalls Farben sehr originalgetreu wiedergeben, die mit Prozessfarben schlicht unmöglich sind. Anstatt Ihre Standardfarben als Schmuckfarben festzulegen, können Sie auch die vordefinierten PANTONE®-Schmuckfarben verwenden. Eine Schmuckfarbe erkennen Sie an dem kleinen Punkt in der rechten unteren Ecke ihres Farbfeldes. Über das Panel "Farbe" können Sie überprüfen, ob eine Schmuckfarbe für die Kontur oder Füllung eines Objekts festgelegt wurde. Bei dem Publizieren von PDFs können Sie über die Option Schmuckfarben übernehmen des Panels "Exportoptionen" (in der Export Persona) die Schmuckfarben in Ihre Ausgabe integrieren. In diesem Panel finden Sie auch die Option für das Überdrucken von Schmuckfarben. Bevor Sie diese Optionen einstellen, sollten Sie sich mit Ihrer Druckerei in Verbindung setzen und nach ihren bevorzugten Vorgaben fragen. Erstellen einer Schmuckfarbe: Legen Sie im Panel Farbfelder eine Dokumentpalette über das Palettenmenü fest. Sollte noch keine Dokumentpalette bestehen, können Sie über das Menü "Panel-Einstellungen" eine neue Palette anlegen. Klicken Sie im Menü Panel-Einstellungen auf Globale Farbe hinzufügen. Legen Sie die gewünschten Einstellungen in dem Dialogfeld fest. Wählen Sie die Option Schmuckfarbe aus. Klicken Sie auf Hinzufügen. SIEHE AUCH: Globale Farben Überdrucken Auswählen von Farben
  20. When I print direct from Publisher, fonts print differently from when I print from a PDF exported from Publisher. The font prints correctly from the PDF. It looks like the text printed directly from Publisher has been kerned and boldened. See file attached. Thanks Font Samples.afpub Font Samples.pdf
  21. When I try to use the print function from menu or from shortcut cmd+p, I first noticed this when, I open a pdf file, and then try to print it, publisher 1.8.3 crashes. Even after saving as a publisher type file *.afpub, crashes after the file is saved as publisher type. I have noticed this is now happening with all documents, even those created in publisher. The work around, I have been using is to export as a pdf, and then open in another PDF reader like Preview or Acrobat, from which I can print. I'd be happy to test any patches or fixes. d System iMac13,1 i7, 3.09 16 GB 500GB Samsung MacOS 10.13.6 (17G4015) Publisher 1.8.3
  22. 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
  23. 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 to JPG, it looks fine. 2) In case of location icon, the group is changed, one object gets fill. Designer view to the left and exported PDF to the right. Files are in uploads - afdesign and pdf for comparison. As you will observe, exporting the same elements on blank background produces proper results. faulty-export-pdf.afdesign faulty-export-pdf.pdf
  24. 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 (see the attached images of a clean JPEG versus the best PDF). Regardless of the AP PDF setting I chose, some form of corruption resulted. I finally just exported the job as JPEG pages, then created a PDF using Acrobat. The first PDF was over 250mb which is much to large for my client to use. I got a usable file by saving the PDF as a Compressed PDF. This turned out to be only 4mb which is what my client needed. When I was using Adobe IND all images were clean and small in size as they should be. It is only when I used AF that the whole process ended with a slightly dirty final PDF. What did I do wrong, or what could I have done to get a small clean PDF?
  25. I am having the same issue, whereby a document created in Affinity Designer, some images are Jpg and some are PNG. (see attachment). I export the document to a PDF and the PNG images print black around them, it doesn't matter whether I export for print or web or 192 or 300. Visually on screen and in the exported PDF there is not a problem. Only on the printed document. I have had HP online today working on this problem thinking it is the printer, they have re-installed the drivers and it is still happening. This did not happen 6 months ago. I had printed a document out 12 months ago, no problems, then had to edit it and re-print a few months ago and this problem started occurring. I am using an iMac with Catalina installed, but this problem happened before that new operating system. I am using a HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 printer. I have been creating these documents for some 5 years without problem. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
