  1. I regularly create PDFs for my clients to proof projects. Most will mark up the PDF, send it back, and I review their edits in the Comments tab. Since I recently purchased a new Apple Powerbook with the Apple silicon, my clients can no longer use the markup feature in Adobe Acrobat. Specifically any of the highlight, underline, or strike out options. I'm also concerned that Publisher will not create a properly formatted PDF when it comes time to send a file to the print vendor. In looking new PDFs versus old ones I've exported from Publisher, I see that the encoding software is now listed as "PDFlib+PDI 9.1.2p1-i (generic)", while in the older, pre-M1 exports, its listed as "PDFlib+PDI 9.1.2p1-i (OS X/macOS)". I assume this may be a compatibility issue with Acrobat. I saw this article from back in the Fall: Acrobat M1 Compatibility . Is there a fix or a workaround for this issue?
  2. I don't seem be able to export eps files without problems anymore. I now have to manually expand lines and convert AD shapes to curves. I have to find these workarounds by trial and error. These eps file are being imported into Apple's Keynote. There are no gradients or special effects applied to this file. Just lines and shapes. 1. When I export the whole document it is transparent, the pistons and cylinder show but the bounding box is HUUUUGE and there are many selection problems with many eps files on a page 2. If I export without the background the cylinders and pistons do not show, the whole engine is black 3. I have attached the AD file and an image of the eps as all black. The black image is how apple sees it in the finder and how keynote imports it 4. Is there a resource that explains all these back room rules? I've never had any issues whatsoever with AI and exporting eps files and I am not a programmer so I do not understand all the under-the-hood programming rules on how software is supposed to work. Sorry but I am a graphic designer and not an engineer. TIA GM-Winton 16-278A V-16.afdesign
  3. There seems to be little or no antialiasing on the multitude of lines to the right of this scarf making the staircasing effect extremely obvious when used at desktop and mobile resolutions for a game. (Picture 1) If I export as PDF, SVG or EPS vector only file and have something else render it like Edge or Photoshop, the antialiasing is much better (Picture 2) It's the same on-screen and also when exported via via bilinear or lanczos to PNG. Performance is set to bilinear and high quality. I'm using an outline FX, but it's the same when off. The difference is night and day, with the first one not being useable at all. Is there a way to increase the level of anti-aliasing? UPDATE 1 : The line is a brush, if I remove the brush and make it just a line, it ant aliases much better. Maybe this is a brush rendering issue with antialiasing?
  4. Hi, I've just downloaded the Affinity Designer trial, and am quite impressed. However, I am a design student and my school computers have adobe programs. As far as I can tell, I can't find any way of exporting Designer files as Ai files? I can see the option to export as psd, and I've tried to open Ai files using Designer with no problems - but I wanted to check whether there was a way of exporting to Ai that I had missed. Thanks
  5. 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
  6. Hey, I am sometimes baffled by some fundamental interaction flaws in Affinity. I think that having the export persona was a bad design decision. I have a problem I cannot figure out a solution to: I simply want to move a graphic and a slice together. Impossible. You can either move the whole graphic or the slice but you have no way to select a graphic and its slice together. Try to resize a document: All your slices will stay in their absolute position forcing you to reslice everything! Please fix as soon as possible and get rid of the export persona completely. Just do what Sketch does. So much easier.
  7. Text frame tool buggy behaviour Affinity Designer v1.8.6, macos Catalina 10.15.7. Reproduce: Set cell stroke > 0 on a tab " " or a space " ". After doing that you can visualize the bug by moving the cursor around the text frame. The cursor will change into an editing caret even if you're far outside the text frame. Also if you click with the selection tool somewhere above and well outside the text frame; it will still be selected. Select the text frame and export "Selection without background". Expected result: a pdf showing only the text in the selected text frame. Actual result: the pdf displays white areas to the top and left of the text frame extending all the way to the top and left edge of the page as it was appearing in Designer. See below for a better explanation:
  8. I need to export designs as SVG so that they could be used in a web UI at a specific size (150 x 150 px). By this I mean that the graphic sits in a transparent space of those dimensions. However, even if I create a canvas with those dimensions and select to export the entire document, the SVG I get have dimensions that are based only on the space occupied by the objects inside the canvas and not including the clear space they sit in. I even tried making a rectangle in the background that's 150x150 px and setting opacity to 0% without luck. In AdobeXD, for example, I can create an artboard that's 150x150px and export it with the resulting SVG being exactly the way I need it to be. How can I do this in Affinity Designer? I'd like to create all of my SVGs in AD.
  9. Hi, I created a vector logo I need to export it to another vector format. It has only vector elements in it. It is all vector curves and text. The issue that I am having is that the the main icon keeps rasterizing after export to EPS or PDF and other vector format. When I open it back up in Affinity Designer the part with the main icon is reterized. The text is fine. It does not have any effects, it is all made up in Affinity Designer in curves. Can you please help me? Thank you!
  10. Hi all, Publisher crashed during an export to PDF. I get to the export screen, but while exporting it crashes. Exporting to JPG works fine. Attached is the report from the Apple System. I have a: MacBookAir10,1, BootROM 6723.61.3, proc 8:4:4 processors, 16 GB, SMC. Any suggestions? Thank you and all the best! Crash report.rtf
  11. In the Export Persona, when exporting an image for the web and you want the size as small as possible, you want to see a preview of what you will be exporting. So you can change the quality of a jpeg and see instantly what the result will be. The same when you change the number of colors in the palette of gifs and pngs. Also show the sizes in bytes of the slices you are exporting. The size is shown in the simple Export, but not in the more advanced Export Persona. Fireworks does this very well, it even has multiple previews with different export settings.
  12. I've been using AD for about a week now and I must say I love. I have a couple of tools and personalization options I still miss from Illustrator and I'm hoping to see them in Affinity soon. One of these is the option to choose the background color of a PNG file upon exporting. Setting a background in any color is fast and easy while creating the content, but exporting an image with a transparent background is impossible. Or at least I haven't found the way to do it.
  13. Hi, I have found a bug. In the file opened in Designer visualization is ok but if I export on pdf a part of file have a not good quality. Why? Thanks
  14. I use Affinity Designer to create files that I export – using "SVG (for export)" – for other apps, such as Cricut Design Space. The problem is that the Affinity Designer SVG export contains scientific e notation values like: <g id="topback" transform="matrix(-1,-1.22465e-16,1.22465e-16,-1,854.039,695.404)"> that other apps, specifically Design Space, chokes on. Trying to import that object into DS results in unusable, malformed objects. Sometimes I can "fix" it by editing the SVG file from the above, to: <g id="topback" transform="matrix(0,1,1,0,854.039,695.404)"> resetting the transform matrix, but it doesn't work for all objects, I haven't dug into how to map the space transforms properly, and I'm trying to avoid learning/doing that because this step is a huge pain. Based on a bunch of SVG parsers, the files are technically valid, and Affinity can re-import the SVGs, but I need them to work with the other apps. But this issue doesn't happen all the time and I can't figure out exactly what causes it to occur in the first place. Nor can I figure out how to fix it. I've tried deleting the offending object and re-creating them, but the new objects are affected exactly as the one it's replacing Any ideas would be very helpful. THANK YOU!
  15. Hi. This is an old, old, old solved bug returning on 1.6.1 If I duplicate an artboard and change the name, its associated export slice retains the old name. Also, changing existing artboard name doesn't change slice's one. It is happening randomly. Sometimes it happens, sometimes not, I can't find a pattern to give you steps to reproduce. Not sure if is a general issue or is triggered by something. I suspect it happens on documents created in the previous version. It seem to work correctly on documents created directly on 1.6.1 Feel free to request further info or a problematic document.
  16. Hi everyone,,, having trouble exporting to specific mm sizes when saving SVG vector graphics [for signage] Are have prepared 48 sign panels at full size artwork 600mm x 600mm as a series of artboards I want to export them at 512x512 px PNG for some rendering software and full size [mm] as SVG and AI files to the sign fabricator.. both having trouble in both regards When I exporrt as PNG i get each artboard exported at 7000 x 7000px [roughly the overal document size [eg all the artboards combined] in mm] so I have to batch resample them down to 512 x 512 in photo designer as a seaparate task... When I export the files as full size SVG each panel is exported as 7000x7000px [2500x3500mm] , not 600x600mm as expected the new file defaults to px units even though my parent document units are mm... as for getting 2500mm rather than 600x600mm has me mystified. did a lot of research before coming here.. nearly all tuts refer to pixel sizes , not mm any help appreciated BIM HSL SIGNS -2.afdesign
  17. Hi everyone, probably a newbie question, but I just want to get it right before sending out my document for printing. I have created a document with multiple elements that have a 90% fill opacity (see screenshot attached) and overlay eachother: The colors I used are "normal" ones, so neither spot or overprint colors. When I export the file as a PDF (CMYK colors) everything looks as intended, so the opacity is still there. What will happen during printing? Will the opacity be visible on the printed document as well? Or will it be removed before printing, so in my example above it would be orange with 100% print opacity and the overlay effect would be lost? Thanks!
  18. Is it possible to export affinity designer to PSD file with editable text? If yes, how?
  19. I love Affinity Designer, I'm using it allot, for UI design for presentations, it's a great tool . I even use it for small texture work when I need to do something sharp . But Affinity Photo it's well how to put this ... I would like to use it but I'm always returning to Photoshop . Why ? Well because the workflow for copy / pasting textures into channels is not that intuitive ( the spare channel flow ... ) and the problem of exporting TGA's . I prefer a tga instead png's because of the dedicated alpha channel .
  20. Hello, I am facing a peculiar issue. I have two windows laptops on which Affinity photo is installed. But only on one of them I get this error when exporting an image after finishing the edit - If I turn the embed metadata option off, then it works. However, on the other laptop there is no such issue. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling affinity photo on the machine, but the issue persists. Incidentally, the machine with this issue is the faster of the two. How can I resolve this? Thanks in advance.
  21. In my line of work it is essential that I am able to export my images to 8 bit .BMP Is it possible that this option may be added, or is there a simple alternative....without resorting to PhotoShop?
  22. Hello. I'm attempting to upload art made in Affinity Designer to Teespring. I export as a PNG, Resample: Bilinear and don't resize the image larger when creating my listing. After creating the listing, the preview looks pixelated. Other shops don't have this pixelation problem on their product pages. I'm concerned about the quality of the shirt. Their design tips say to turn off anti-aliasing in Illustrator. Can I achieve a similar result in Designer to prevent pixilation of a printed product? I see an export option for nearest neighbor but I don't fully understand this or if it will allow my design to be printed with high quality. The artwork are vectors and they are only pixelated when uploaded to the shop. What would you suggest?
  23. I have an EXR from blender thats saved in ACES with the official 1.2 ACES package from the github . When I import it into AP, point the configuration file to pathTo/OpenColorIO/aces1.2/config.ocio and in the 32-bit preview window my display settings are set to the following. This gives me the correct image in the viewport which matches my blender render. However, when I go to export the image, the colors are not correct and washed out since I assume this is just a "preview" hence the 32-bit preview tab title and not applying the OCIO display transform to the final image. I tried adding a OCIO adjustment layer but couldnt get anything to work. When I did this I changed the display transform under 32 bit preview to ICC. The input colorspace is ACES-ACEScg since thats what it is and was rendered in in blender. In the Destination color space dropdown I tried a variety of options but none of them worked nor matched the OCIO display transform in the 32 bit preview of sRGB/ACES. The only way I could capture what it is supposed to look like is to either upload the "raw" ACES renders from blender or what i did which was to take a screen snip of the desktop with windows Snip & Sketch. Please help me. I am interested in being able to save ACES only - please dont direct me to look at things related to blender filmic
  24. Hi, I had a lot of problems with one of the first versions of APublisher (I even had to re-subscribe to Adobe to finish my work) and recently, I had to re-open an old file and I was again confronted with the instability of the app. I hesitate to reuse APub because of all these problems (it's been a real nightmare). APub had given me satisfaction for a poster with a classic Fogra type export profile. However, APub was unable to "translate" a professional printer's profile exported from Adobe Photoshop? Has anyone tested specific profiles from pro printers different from the more "classical" ones (fogra-type, etc.)? Thank you for your feedback. Patrick
  25. Here is an error that I was able to replicate on my system MacOS Catalina version 10.15.7 (19H15) Affinity designer app store version 1.8.6 In the attached affinity file you can see that the white object is in a group by itself and the group opacity is set to 90%. When exporting this to pdf (see attached), the grouped object has weird glitches around the edge. The version on the right is smooth and round. glitch.pdf pdf-glitch.afdesign
