  1. Hi, I think I have encountered a bug when outputting a PDF for print. Here's how my artwork is set up and (hopefully) how to replicate the bug: Create new document with a bleed value and multiple artboards Create objects that overlap bleed area File > Export and select PDF Select 'PDF (for print)' preset. Though this may occur on other presets Select an Area of one of the artboards Tick the 'Include bleed' checkbox In the 'More' section select to 'include printers marks' Export the file The resulting PDF features the single artboard artwork and all the printer's marks but no bleed. This can be remedied by selecting the 'Area' in the PDF export dialogue to be the 'Whole document'. Then the 'include bleed' setting seems to be honored. Please let me know if you need any further details to reproduce this bug. I've attached the source artwork and the resulting PDF, sans-bleed. PS Also, on a point of English, should the label "include printers marks" be "include printer's marks"? multiple artboards.afdesign Art2.pdf
  2. Hi! I understand through quick online searching that it is possible to create bleeding edges on Affinity Designer. Is this possible on Affinity Photo? I can't seem to find out how.
  3. I'e set up a document wich should have bleed/crop marks on every edge with 3mm inset. If I export that as pdf and include the marks, only the top and bottom marks are placed correctly. The left and right are placed exactly where the document ends, but they should be inset my 3mm. If I set the bleed marks to 6mm, they same happens. Top and bottom marks are set correctly, left and right are not inset at all. (see screenshots) This bug happens on new documents, two different macs and even on iPad. The same behavior is for Affinity photo and Affinity Publisher beta.
  4. Hello, I've been trying to make bleed work for a long time, searched this forum thoroughly, and never found a clear answer. I have an artboard of 24*36 in for a poster with a gray background. I'm adding a bleed of 0.125 in on every side in the settings of the document. I'm increasing the width and the height of the artboard by 0.25 in, in order to make my gray background extend into the bleed area. I export the artboard in PDF while checking the "include bleed" and "include cutting marks" setting. RESULT : the cutting marks are placed at exactly the limits of the 24*36 poster, INSTEAD of the desired 24.25*36.25 limits. How can I make this work? Thank you
  5. I have created a document in Affinity Designer and sent it to a printing company who have replied and said it is not in the correct format. It is an A5 document and as per their guidelines I created a 3mm bleed. I have exported it (and clicked 'More' and 'Include Bleed) but when I export it as a PDF it has a white border around it. I have scoured these forums for answers, I have tried exporting it about 10 times now using different settings- with and without printers markers, as a preset 'PDF for print' to name a few. I even created a slightly larger document (a few cm bigger than A5) to see if that worked! I just need the background colour to go all the way to the edge of the PDF and not have a white border! The company won't print it until I send it without this so I need to sort this out as soon as I can! :o
  6. Hi, I had an unexpected behavior when creating a document that was 6.75” x 10.25” with a 0.125” bleed. I tested with other document sizes and the behavior is repeatable. If the bleed value is not a whole number (in pixels), the exported document size is incorrect when the “Include Bleed” option is selected. For example, if a 300 DPI document has a 0.125 inch bleed, then this is equivalent to a 37.5 pixels bleed. When the document is exported, and “Include Bleed” is selected, the size (in pixels) is incorrect — it’s one pixel less than expected. The size should be equal to the “Dimensions” size (from the “Spread Setup” ) plus 75 pixels (i.e. 37.5 + 37.5). Instead, it is equal to the “Dimensions” size plus 74 pixels. The bleed value of 37.5 appears to get truncated to 37. To recreate the behavior, do the following. Create a new document. Set documents units to PIXELS. Set the PAGE WIDTH = 2025 px. Set PAGE HEIGHT = 3075 px. Set the BLEED = 37.5 px on all sides. This should create a document that is 2100 pixels x 3150 pixels including the bleed. (i.e. 2025 + 37.5 + 37.5 = 2100 and 3075 + 37.5 + 37.5 = 3150). Select EXPORT from the FILE menu. Select the PNG file type and check the “Include Bleed” box. Observe the size is 2099 x 3149 and not 2100 x 3150 as expected. Thanks, Matt
  7. Hi, This is perhaps a bit of a newbie question, so I apologise in advance but I can't find the answer in the forums. I am creating an A4 document to design a tri-fold lealfet in Affinity Designer. I set the document size as A4 landscape with 25mm bleed lines all round BUT I can't see the bleed lines in my workspace and in fact, according to the ruler the document is exactly A4 size with no bleed lines. When i export as PDF there are no bleed lines either What am I doing wrong ? Is there a tutorial specifically to set out a document from start so it can be properly set up to then be sent to a printer ? Thanks in advance PS: I am not hugely knowledgeable about graphic design / print so any help welcome. OBH leaflet inside.afdesign OBH leaflet outside.afdesign
  8. Using Designer v1.6.1 under macOS 10.13.6, I have a 300ppi (dpi) document with 2 artboards - it includes 0.125" bleed. Each artboard is the same size -- 5.25" x 8.25". When exporting individual pages as PDF with printer's marks, crops, registration, bars and page info, the resultiing PDF size of the cropped area works fine and is, as expected at 5.25" x 8.25". However when exporting the whole document (both pages), with the same settings preset, the crop size somehow is changing to 5.5" x 8.5". This doesn't seem like the correct behaviour and is a different result than exporting the individual pages. Am I doing something wrong here? How can I get the expected results of a crop of 5.25" x 8.25" when exporting all the pages (whole document)? fwiw, my issue also occurs with the Designer Beta 1.7.0.3. 18-1639OHA-PDF-Export-issue-wholedocument.pdf 18-1639OHA-PDF-Export-issue-nobleed.pdf 18-1639OHA-PDF-Export-issue-withbleed.pdf 18-1639OHA-PDF-Export-issue.afdesign
  9. Under macOS 10.13.6 with Publisher 1.7.0.206, Publisher doesn't use the bleed settings I'd set up in a Designer file. I opened my Designer and converted to Publisher spreads. This conversion works, but the bleed settings were changed to zero in the Publisher file.

    I understand that docs with artboards don't currently display bleeds. Working on non-artboard docs, the bleed functions as expected. It would be great if the bleed area would be dimmed/made translucent to a user specified percentage, or at least have a hard line to inform the user that the artwork extends into the bleed. Currently there is no way to see where the bleed area begins and the page ends. Thanks for your consideration
  11. Dear developers, I have a little problem with background rasterize: if I no use Picture box, just place an image, and I use bleed, then rasterize function not working correctly: image will rasterize to cropped size, not to bleed. Need rasterize to real size + bleed, because after crop base, leave a line, if cropping not exactly.
  12. Hello, Many apologies if it has already been requested, or if the functions already exists but I did search and can't find it. Is there a possibility to have bleeds for artboards? I would like them to be printed when I am designing, say a business card back and front on the same document with two artboards, and I would like to be able to visualise and/or print printers marks from there. For the moment I am using guides and they don't print (obviously :), but it would be nice to be able to visualise the artboards pretty much like if they were individual document. That would save lots of time when doing identity kits for example. (same doc contains business cards, letterheads, thank you cards etc...) Many thanks!
  13. Opened a PDF from Indesign in publisher 1.1.0.128, exported to PDF for print: all images except the first page are inverted, this does not happen when the PDF is opened and exported in Affinity Photo and exported, when the exported document is opened in Publisher Images are also inverted Original Document viewed in Apple QuickLook Export from Affinity Publisher 1.1.0.128 viewed in Apple QuickLook
  14. Hi, First message in this forum. I was trying out Publisher beta 1.7.128 but I've had to give up, since its impossible to set up correctly the pages bleed. My project is a photo book to be printed "lay flat" on demand (by Blurb). This should imply no bleed on any inner side page, which alternates from left to right, while the modal window input fields are labeled: "Left" and "Right" instead of "Inner" and "Outer". Is this issue going to be solved? Is there a temporary workaround? Thank you
  15. Overall I'm really chuffed that we have viewable, usable bleed guides (which I've been moaning on about for near on 4 years) but there are still a few major problems, after setting up a page (always with 3mm bleed). linking to a pdf works great (as long as you enable bleed in the pdf dialog) I was hoping linking or embedding a afpub doc layed out with bleed, would be a more flexible option but there seems to be no way to bring over the bleed - and on some complex pages with lots of vector layers with nested textures, effects and drop shadows I've found theres sometimes odd drop shadow things happening when saving as a pdf so the best option is to duplicate the group of layers with all the vector info (including artwork that bleeds off the page) and rasterise, the big problem is the raster copy trims to the page, with no bleed - Hope this gets sorted soon?
  16. In Document Setup when changing unit type from say Inches to Centimetres and either tabbing to the next input box or clicking on an input box the unit type doesn't change until you click OK and then go back into the Document setup. Typing in those input boxes will still show "in" not "cm" Another option you should have is to be able to sync all or selected inputs instead of having to type in each one, this goes for all affinity apps with bleeds and also margins.
  17. Hi, I've just found a minor bug (see pic, APub .133 on Windows) in the document setup box: It should be "top bleed" instead of "right bleed" when having facing pages, shouldn't it? Best, Volker
  18. The naming of bleed input fields at Document Setup Dialog is wrong. The tooltips are okay. But the naming is wrong: instead of Right bleed it should be outer bleed and instaead of outer bleed it should be top bleed. see attached file BTW: why not setup the bleed in the initial document setup????
  19. I define a bleed in the document and add it to my PDF-export settings. But the generated pdf-file is still without bleed.
  20. My printer (Ingram Spark) requires: "Bleed: 0.125" (3 mm) except on bind side (on the three trim edges.dded to the three trim edges (top, bottom, outside). Please do not add bleed to the bind (gutter) edge as this will cause incorrect positioning." Publisher does not seem to offer to not have bleed on the 'blind side' (ie spine side). Am I missing it? ie the bleed would be on different edges for left and right pages. I have a grey background to a book of photographs. I've pulled out the grey to protrude 3mm to their instructions as above. When I export to PDF it includes 3mm increase in size all around and so the PDF is 3mm too long (the book is landscape). The document set-up does not allow left and right page bleed control. Can I correct this? Stefan 'Compostion'
  21. The bleed options in Document Setup are given as… Inner, Outer, Right, and Bottom Surely Right should be Top?! UPDATE… Bug is worse than just the labels. The fields are misassigned. Outer is actually the Top. Right is the Outer. Inner doesn't seem to do anything?! Bottom is Bottom <- Hooray!
  22. As version .128 of the beta should now have repaired most issues handling bleed, I was about to test some things. I create a new document as a facing pages (and in this dialog I still cannot define bleed, only margins...) I am now able to define bleed on all four sides independently. the SETUP-DOC dialog only lets me enter LEFT RIGHT TOP BOTTOM which would be right for single pages But I want to have no bleed on the spine so I need OUTER INNER TOP BOTTOM like ID does it after you select spreads. Am I doing something wrong? I am only getting 0mm bleed on the left side of the spread.
  23. Since update 1.7.0.128 when exporting pages from a document using facing pages there are no bleeds on the pdf even though the bleed option is selected. Exporting as spreads produces bleeds. Before the update pages exported from a facing page document had bleeds. Posted it in the Windows bugs forum as I am using Windows 10 and don't know if this also applies to Mac. And can we please have the option to have bleed on the inner page edges on facing pages as well as top, bottom. left and right.
  24. "Document Setup" appears to have the same content as "New Document" except for setting "Bleed" Defining bleed should be a setting when creating a new document (rather than the only different item in Document setup) since bleed is part of the basic geometry of a page destined for print.
  25. Hi Is there a setting I might be missing? I set-up a brochure for testing purposes using facing pages, but if I export it as single pages to PDF/X including document bleed, there is no bleed. There is bleed if I export it as the spreads. I can easily set-up as single pages next time, but I thought I might still have the option either way. Thanks Andy
