  1. I'm having serious issues printing borderless, and I don't know if it's my printer (canon 5150) or affinity. I've tried both photo and designer. I feel like i've tried all settings and it keeps coming out with a white border. I've tried scaling up, and the border stays the same. It worked once, without me changing any settings. I also had this issue a month ago, and it just fixed itself. When i first created this item it printed with no problems. The colours are also coming out 2 shades lighter. I urgently need this sorting, it's for a paid job, (I'm a small business artist) and it's needs going in the post within the next day or 2 min. Can anyone help please? Am i doing something wrong? EDIT - it's just started working despite not changing the settings again. I've saved these as presets, hopefully it works next time. Still looking for help on whether this could be an affinity issue, or maybe my printer?
  2. When selecting a page size under the print menu there are about 100 randomly ordered options. Many of these I will never use, and some of those that I do (17x22) are difficult to find. It would be great (if it does not already exist) to have a way to edit and order this list.
  3. I don't see how to create a feature (object/layer) that is visible, but won't print.
  4. I am fairly regularly seeing a problem with printing from Affinity Publisher on my Canon printer. The document mostly prints OK but certain images - possibly rotated ones, overlapping ones and/or transparent-backgrounded ones - have strange omitted portions on the resultant print. It's definitely a Publisher issue, because when I export to PDF and print exactly the same document from Acrobat, the issues are not present. I have known this to happen across several versions of Publisher over a fairly long period (possibly as long as Publisher has been around) but not got around to logging it as a bug until now (sorry!). I've attached some images of it happening on a recent print-out. All three of the rectangular images (which are non-transparent PNG files placed into the document and then rotated to various angles into a sort of collage of overlapping images) should be whole rectangles but two have corners cut off and one has a very weird triangular omission which I've not seen before. Is there anything further I can share by way of assisting with investigating and resolving this bug? Thanks!
  5. Hi, I'd have one feature request: it would be great if in the Publisher print dialogue, the print profile feature would not only save settings made directly in the Publisher print dialogue, but also those of the printer driver (e.g. paper type). Other programs (e.g. Adobe Lightroom) do that, so it should be technically feasible. Regards, Robert
  6. I'm designing a children's book for a client and have run into a problem with our printing company. The first physical copy of the book we ordered had full page spreads that were not lined up properly in the center. I contacted them about this issue and they said it was due to the bleeds being incorrectly set up. I put the book together as spreads, and then un-checked "facing pages" so I can manually adjust the inner bleed for my full-page spreads on each individual page. When I put facing pages back on to see how it looks, the spread illustration flows across the page just fine. However, my printer wants to see the inner bleed for the corresponding pages to "cross over" so the bleeds appear on the opposite inner edge of the page. I've seen other posts on this forum where people have seen the inner bleed "crossover" as a problem, but my file doesn't do this. How can I set this up in Affinity Publisher? I've attached an example of what they want me to do from their site as well as screenshots of what my spread currently looks like (as facing pages and as individual pages).
  7. I'm new to this software and still trialing but falling at first hurdle. When I am adding an image to a letter it shows correctly until I print - then it misaligns. Can someone help me please? I've attached image to show my issues. Thanks
  8. Vector art & text look so crisp on my ipad screen. But when I print them they look low DPI and have jagged edges. Non Affinity Designer docs print fine, so it’s not the printer. I’m not printing directly from the app, or from my iPad, because AirPrint is totally (insert bad word here). I have already tried: Increasing resolution of documents to 300dpi, 600dpi, & 1200dpi. Exporting documents as PDF for print. Setting dpi in export settings to 300dpi & 600dpi. Setting Rasterizing in export settings to unsupported properties, nothing, and everything. Making sure layer opacity set to Normal in all layers. I’m using a USB laser printer. This is my first post. Any help appreciated.
  9. On numerous occasions I've had prints show the border lines of my layers. Now, I just printed a file and it's shows a dark box around the text. None of the layers had an outline in the file. This has happened with Designer and Photo. When I rasterize everything and make it one image, it solves the problem. I shouldn't have to do that. Windows Printer - Epson WF-7720 and Sawgrass SG500
  10. Hi I’m trying to print out an image which has been put together with various elements and text tool. I’ve done lots of others in this way but for some reason this particular one keeps printing out with a line through the same 2 words despite it not appearing on the screen....HELP PLEASE!!
  11. Hi, Potentially a defect but more than happy to eat humble pie if I'm mistaken. When I print the attached Published document, scan of print also attached, the font alignment and sizing is way off what was shown on screen. Is it me or is there a problem here? Thanks, Jon C WW2_Great_Grandad.afpub
  12. Hi I've been using moo.co.uk for making postcards from my photos for many years. They allow me to have as many different photos on the front as I have cards in a pack. I haven't seen any other company offer that, or I would probably just switch now. They recently removed the option "picture enhancement", which worked really well for my photos. The first batch of cards that arrived now has less contrast and less shadow correction than the earlier versions. I have not reached out to their support yet, but will of course. https://support.moo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360035605391-Dull-or-dark-print "We recommend previewing and editing your files in CMYK with the assigned colour profile Coated GRACoL 2006 in an outside design editing software. From here, you may choose to adjust your brightness (for photos), or CMYK colour values (for vector/text-based designs)." I googled and I found a lot of documentation https://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/color-space-conversion.htm https://affinity.help/photo/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/Clr/ClrProfiles.html?title=Color management https://affinityspotlight.com/article/designing-for-professional-printing/ but I'm still completely lost. I like how my MacBook screen looks, I don't want to calibrate it to look any different. I also don't really know how to use layers in AP yet. I do the adjustments I usually do directly on the background layer. Things I've tried so far with the Coated GRACoL 2006 icc profile: I'm in Affinity Photo, in the Photo Persona, and have one of my photos open I make a screenshot as the "before" picture In the 'Colour' tab, I change RGB to CMYK In the 'Adjustment' tab, I open 'Softproof' I choose 'Coated GRACoL 2006', which is there because I imported it to the correct folder on the Mac before There is a minuscule change in color. No change in contrast or shadows (which is where the problem with my latest moo cards is) When I use 'Document' – 'Assign ICC Profile' or ''Convert Format / ICC Profile', there is zero difference between the 'Softproof' layer being checked or unchecked. And there is no difference to the original photo. What I expected to happen When choosing the profile in 'Softproof' I would have expected the photo to switch to a much duller version on screen, which I then would try to make better in Affinity Photo and export in the corrected version. Which would look over the top in RGB (= on screen), but would work for print. Maybe somebody who's reading this has been in a similar situation and can list the steps needed to get from my photos to the CMYK version for moo's printer? Or maybe somebody can point me to a tutorial that's already covering that. Thank you Manu
  13. This may be a silly question but is there a method to print a facing page book (PDF) produced in APUB whereby it prints as you see on the screen. I am using Acrobat Reader to print the PDF and the printed out put is not correct.
  14. Hello. During the most common printing process in printing, i.e. per page and not per sheet as proposed by Affinity, the internal part of the page (the bleeds?) is moved to the opposite page when printing. Original in Affinity Publisher Result in PDF double-page display overflow.afpub
  15. Hi everyone, I'm having some trouble with printing to PDF. I want to print my files to PDF because that's the only way (I know of) to create digital files in booklet form with crop marks. The problem is, when I print to PDF, the colors in my document turn out way brighter and harsh than the colors in my document. (The issue does not occure, however, when I export to PDF the traditional way -- but I don't know how to make it a book/add crop marks in that case). Here's a side-by-side of the color it's supposed to be and the color it prints to PDF as on the right. I'm really not sure what the issue is. If anyone has had this issue and fixed it, or has any clue what I'm doing wrong, I'd greatly appreciate your help. If it helps at all, here are my export to PDF color settings (that produces the correct result) next to my print to PDF settings (which produces the wrong color). Thanks so much in advance for any help you may be able to offer!
  16. Hi. I bought Affinity Photo to make CMYK book covers for printing presses. They need me to provide a PDF complete with crop marks (and spine marks). They need these crop marks to reach the edge of the document like this: But when I export my file (whether I choose to "include bleed" or not) It always inserts extra whitespace between the image and the crop marks like this (where the yellow is the book cover's color): But I know that it's possible to get the lines flush with the image because I saw a video where a guy does it like this: So what am I doing wrong? I'm not using margins at all (and when I do it doesn't change anything). The bleed and trim are all incorporated within the document. I just want to export a PDF with crop marks touching the very edge! Please help! And thanks for reading. EDIT: Also, if anybody knows how to include "Spine Marks" then that would be great too!
  17. Currently I am designing a marketing flyer. It is square, 148 by 148mm, 3 pages horizontal and folds inward (left page on top, right in between, middle page bottom). I have created a page layout with the measures, but find no way to make the 3 pages show continuously side by side like a brochure with 2 facing pages. Is there any way to define a layout with 3 facing pages (or even 4 of them) ? In total I need 6 pages, 3 front, 3 rear. The bleed is just around the total layout, 2 folding areas going through, where the printed content can be continuous. My alternative would be to create a page size with a dimension of 3 pages side by side. But for the upload of the design to the online printshop, I need each page as a single pdf. Any ideas ?
  18. In my previous post I received some help in regards to what settings to use in AD for your color profile, now as I continue to do my Lets Make Shapes project or Spacetronauts I realized that I can't put them on Redbubble or Inprnt because of different colors. Which the previous solution was : "The color profile you want to use as the Designer document is setup to use Wide Gamut RGB. If when exporting click on More and change the ICC profile to sRGB this should be closer to what you are wanting, for posting on the Web" - Lee D Now what I am wondering is what color profiles to use in scenario for printing your digital artworks? Because on Redbubble : "Our garment printers only print in the CMYK format so we recommend designing in this colour spectrum as it will give you a better idea of how the final product will look. You will still need to convert to sRGB colour profile to get your works looking as glorious as possible on the site." - And seeing all of my designs for AD has been designed in the solution posted above, will I be able to convert them to CMYK without losing much of the color choices? Thanks in advance!
  19. I'm running Affinity Photo 1.8.3 on a 2018 MacBook Pro 15" Touch Bar with 32 GB of RAM under macOS 10.14.6 Mojave. Printing is excruciatingly s-l-o-w. For the print dialog even to appear took 1 min. 15 sec.! Savor that number. It means after clicking File | Print... I had to wait 1 min. 15 sec. just to see anything happen at all. Since the default printer is not the one I use for printing photos, the first thing I do in the Print dialog is change the printer. After selecting the printer in the dropdown list I had to wait 1 min. 20 sec. before the new printer's name replaced the old one's. After that I changed the ICC profile and the print quality, then clicked Print. It took 1 min. 15 sec. until the Printing message disappeared. Printing an exported .jpg or .tiff in Preview takes nowhere near as long. 2 min. 35 sec. just to change the default printer in the Print dialog!!!
  20. has anybody tried to proof a document with publisher? currently getting mad with this! having a dedicated rip i am trying to get an accurate proof out of affinity publisher with no effort. publisher seems not to be able to skip any color profile when printing - even when setting that colors are to be managed by printer, theres still a selection for a color profile that obviously interferes with the print and leads to wrong colors. is there ANY way to tell Publisher NOT to use any profile when printing to the rip???
  21. 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!
  22. I have both Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher. The printing I do will go either on a mug, t-shirt, or harder substrate all of which will be printed with sublimation. Affinity Photo, it was suggested is a very fine software offering quality prints, thus my reasoning for having it. I also print on an Epson WF7720 Printer. My question is using Affinity Photo, what are the procedures/steps for printing no border of any kind when printing the picture etc.❓ I am only interested in seeing the finished picture with subject, background, and or text no frame. Is this possible to do this, and if so please how is it done❓ Thank You, Dick
  23. I recently downloaded the trial of publisher. When trying to print something on my laser or inkjet - printing never works. There is always an error message, saying "printing was stopped by the print management" I could only create PDF. Is there a print limitation in the trial version?
  24. Hello everyone, I bought an Epson XP-15000 and I'm trying to print from affinity photo on MacOs. I've done the soft proof correctly and now I'm in Print menu but I have some doubt. About color matching I set up this: But here in printer features there are a large number of parameters. How can I set them, please?
  25. It's been a while since I've been able to use Affinity Photo but not that I'm retired I am getting back into it but have already run into a problem with printing. I've already searched the forum for all posts pertaining to a magenta color cast on prints. Some of them are quite old and I've tried most of the suggestions posted but still don't have a solution to my printing problem. Most of what I've been able to find online and on this forum tells me that the issue is "double color correction" and that only the printer or the app should control the image color and that Print Preview should be turned off. To that end I have tried setting the Affinity print settings both ways, Performed by App and Performed by Printer. In each of them I've opened the Printer Properties and selected the opposite setting to avoid the conflict between app and printer, but to no avail. I've also tried printing out of Windows Photo Viewer and got the same results which leads me to think the printer is at fault. But even selecting "no color management" in the printer driver gives the magenta color cast on the print. I am printing from my HP Envy laptop to my Epson WF-7610 and cannot get a decent image to print. I've uploaded a screen capture of my printing settings and a copy of the pitiful results. Hopefully someone can point me to a solution to this printing dilemma before I run out of paper. I've already gone thru half a ream, luckily it's just multi-purpose white for these test prints.
