  1. At least not in Indesign CS5, and I was delighted that Publisher has a feature for tableau printing! The absolute coronation would be even now, if horizontally and vertically different bleeds would be possible - including a rotation of the page (with suitable backgrounds) to keep the number of cuts low (works at corel draw) -> see screenshot
  2. Hello! I am having issues with Affinity Designer not exporting the crop marks properly on a booklet I'm trying to send to print. The bleeds are not working properly. Each finished page is 7" x 10" and I am trying to export bleeds and crop marks at .125" around each edge. I tried transforming each page to 7.25 x 10.25 thinking maybe I had to take account of the bleeds in the page size, but that didn't seem to work either. I made sure to 'include bleeds' when exporting. I am on a tight timeline to send to print and I am unable to fix this myself. Is anyone able to help?
  3. Hello, I'm having recently some trouble with bleeds. I'm a newbie to graphic stuff, I've created a poster and now i need to print it and cut off the edges, so there are no white borders around it. In the document setup, I've set the bleeds to be 3mm on each side. When exporting, I've added all the crop marks and all the stuff, but when I export it to the final pdf file, the bleed marks are 3mm away from the poster, not in it actually (please see attachements, and the bleed is much bigger just to notice the difference). I want Affinity Designer to put the bleed marks in the actual poster, so there will be part of the image cut off. Unfortunately, I can't set bleed with minus at the beginning. Could anyone please help me? Thank you. A lot. Mike ostrava4.pdf
  4. It is custom in the Netherlands to send a pdf to a printer business with a 3 mm bleed, and cutting marks on the real documents borders. I cannot find the right settings for this in Aff Photo. Somebody knows how to do this?
  5. I feel like I missing something very obvious, but I have created a document with margins and bleeds. How do I view them?
  6. Hi Affinity Team, sometimes it is necessary to create a rasterized background layer. While rasterizing the layer is cut off exactly on the edges of the document. This is a problem if I need to export the document for professional printer, where I have to add bleeds (2mm - 5cm) to the document. Since the background is being cut off at the edges there is nothing left for the bleeds. Maybe it is a solution to consider the bleeds settings while rasterizing the selected layers. Cheers Tim
  7. I am starting to see a few posts asking Serif why Publisher hasn't been released yet. After just completing my first BASIC layout project with Designer and Photo it makes sense to me for at least some of the reasons why Publisher hasn't been released. The two currently available apps are still missing some very basic layout tools so Serif needs to get the basics put in those two apps before moving on to the more complex layout software. I wrote a lengthy piece about this in another thread but it was buried one hundred posts down. I just wanted people to be aware of these points so I am starting a new thread so that they can get more exposure. Original post: After doing my first layout project on Affinity I can understand why Serif isn't rushing Publisher out (even though I enjoyed using it for layouts.) There are still a number of basic layout features that need to be added to Designer and Photo to even work well as a basic one page layout software. Why rush out complex layout software before you even have the basics working right? This is the list I have come up with that Affinity should complete before moving to a layout program. - Visible bleeds in the program, not just after exporting the file. There was too much work trying to set up bleeds at a half an inch when I could see an object after it was dragged out into the bleed area. I basically had to draw a half inch box and then drag the object to the size of the box and then delete the box after I no longer needed it. - Adding and editing artboards needs to be done in Photo. If Photo let me edit artboards I could have done my entire book cover layout in Photo (I think) and not had to jump back to Designer each time I needed to make a slight revision. For an example the publisher I was working with said that my book spine needed to be .58" rather then what I previously had it set to which was .5". Such a small adjustment should not require me to go to another app. - I consider text wrap to be a basic tool so this needs to be done without having to rely on a workaround. There is also a feature from InDesign where the text follows along the side an object that I find to be very useful but I can't remember what it is called off the top of my head. - I should be able to select a shape that I want to import an object into. I know there is masking from the layers panel but with InDesign I have gotten used to selecting a shape, selecting place and then having an object get imported in. This object could then show up in the layers panel as a masked item. -The first version of Publisher should include some of the features that InDesign users have been clamoring for over the past several years and never get. The goal is not to just make a clone of InDesign but provide functionality it can't do or can't do well. I think Affinity got off to a good start as a basic layout tool but I really believe that all of these basics need to be done before Publisher comes out. Ideally Publisher should be a solid app right from the first version since so much polishing would have been done to layout tools in Designer and Photo already. This way the focus for Publisher can be placed entirely on things like long document features and ebooks rather then adding layout tools that have been available for decades now (those features should already be in Photo and Designer by release.) Another advantage of placing the focus on Designer and Photo is that people will get comfortable using those programs as solid basic editing apps so when Publisher comes out the transition to the more powerful long document tools will feel more natural since it will be so similar to the programs they already use. PS. I noticed as I was typing this that there is a shortcut for adjusting leading. That is a useful idea. Is anyone else getting this to work? It doesn't work for me. That seems like a much better idea then having to type numbers into a leading box.
  8. Hi Affinity Forums Team! I've not been using AD for that long, but haven't had chance to get my head around exporting PDF with the bleeds, as I could never get them to work correctly. So for instance. A5 Document, printer requires 2mm bleed all around. (A5 = 148mm x 210mm) with Bleed = 152 x 214mm Now, if I set the document to A5, and add "Bleed" of 2mm all around - will AD then make the document 2mm bigger for me all around? It doesn't seem to show? When I export to pdf.. the bleed markings don't show 2mm in.. simply just on the edge of the document??? I've had to make the document actually 2mm bigger to add in the additional bleed bits (if that makes sense) Any ideas. Attached is the pdf and the ad file.

  9. When you set up a bleed, why doesn't it show up in the work area...how does it export if you are exporting as a pdf? How do I properly set up the document bleeds for printing (PDF)?
  10. Hi, I just learned from one of the video tutorials, that an artboard can have a color, which is a nice thing to have. I tried it and realized, that it seems, that the color does not extends into the bleed, when exporting the document. Is that so or do I miss a setting? Thanks Sebastian
  11. In this lesson we set up a document inside of Affinity using guides to create bleeds. Then we go on to create a business card. Check it out and go create. https://youtu.be/tDxQaOVVWrg Allan
  12. Hi, first of all congratulations for your great work! I have been testing your new trial and a doubt crossed my mind. I wanted to print business cards... how can i duplicate my card on a A3 sheet to use the bleed and the crop marks? Or do i have to do all the work manually?
  13. I am very new to this so forgive me if this is a stupid question. I use Affinity to create magazine ads for the company I work for and the magazine editor requires a bleed. How do I go about doing that?
