  1. I have a file that is a image that has text over the top. I have created it in Affinity Designer. The photo is high res (927 KB when i cut n paste it in. Looks high res when i am working on it and the print file is only 90cm square (the original photo was way bigger). All looks good until i try and export to pdf to print. The photo pixellates and becomes only 67 KB in size the whole file. Any idea what i am doing wrong. There is no question in forum addressing it that i could find. Appreciate someones help.

  2. Hello, I designed a birthday invitation for a client, and wanted to export the file as two 5x7 inch invitations on one page, so that she could easily have it printed that way and then be able to cut them properly. I was able to export them two per page as a spread, but then each invitation didn't have the crop marks; it was only on the outer edges of the spread. I kept messing around with it but couldn't figure out how to do this. I think there might've been other options in the print settings, however I wasn't going to be printing it myself. I was just exporting the PDF file and then sending it to my client. Thanks in advance! DeeDee
  3. Hi, I've had this probleem a few times both in Designer and Publisher, where a document just doens't want to export to pdf, in any preset I try. It's always been a document with multiple sized artboards, and some artboards within artboards (which usually doesn't form any problem). When I completely recreate the file from scratch the problem resolves... Is there any way I can find more info other than the error I get for any place I try to export it to? Finder is not the problem as other files save to exactly the same location without error. And it doesn't help to change filename, restart software, restart computer, etc... Thanks! EDIT 1: It looks like it is one text layer that is causing the export error. When I remove the formatting out of that text (I have spent quite some time kerning it, so would prefer not to...!), the error goes away...? When I paste the text with formatting in a new text layer, it gives the error. Both with the artistic text tool, as well as the text frame tool EDIT 2: I have found it! It was referring to an inexisting Font variant... Any way that we can get more information on export errors?
  4. Hi All, first post ever here, but I'm sure I'll have more in the future. I'm really enjoying the use of AP and AD, and soon Publisher (have it, but haven't had a chance to play around yet). I looked for some posts which might cover this question, but I wasn't completely satisfied with piecing it together. First the story: I realized at the end of this project (my first going full AD native file stuff, and not using AI at all) that I can't save a .AI in case the client needs to get edits down the line. I understand the reasons behind that. I have been given an idea of saving a PDF and renaming it .AI, but I haven't played with that yet, and I'm having the same problem saving in PDF as what I will outline below. Now to get to my main question: Is there a way I can get this gaussian blur effect to not rasterize when I'm exporting to svg? I've added the SVG and the PNG as reference. I had to remove the gaussian blur so it wouldn't rasterize the circle. Also, I apologize in advance for the use of horrible fonts, that's what the client insisted on. I couldn't get her to budge on some much better alternates.... *shudder* ---- Basically, I have the SVG so they can be placed by the client at any time she needs, but she really likes the organic brushstroke look of it blurred. I don't remember running into this kind of a problem exporting to PDF from AI when I've done layer effects before. Am I just doing something wrong in export? Kind of an aside, but I feel like the export options are pretty un-intuitive and also would really benefit from a preview. Also, a batch export would be great. Instead I have to select every art board and export individually. It's fairly tedious. Overall, I'm super super happy with all Serif products. Thanks in advance! Logo_RegularReverse.svg
  5. See attached .afdesign file. Each icon on the canvas is 38 x 28 px. Selecting pano1 and exporting it via "File > Export..." , either as a PNG or a JPG, generates an image 59 x 43 px. Now do the same with pano2, which is a copy of pano1 but without arrowhead. Designer in this case generates an image 39 x 29 px. Still 1px too large, but pretty close. The only way to get the correct size after exporting is to make the box size much larger but to leave the arrows at their original size - which is precisely what I don't need. It always happens so it's reproducible. I am using the latest MacOS version and the latest Designer version. nav_4.afdesign
  6. Hello, i just made a header design for a twitter account, the size is 1500x500px and set with a transparent background, but for whatever reason when i try to export the file into a png 24, it only give me the option of png, and png 8 dithered. this causes my artwork to look extreamly blurry and low res. when i post it online. please help me with this issue.
  7. Have updated to 1.7.1 this morning. I have edited a jpg and wish to save the file using layers, thus saving to native file. Same issue when exporting files. Wish to save to Photos Folder on Win10 1903 (or any other folder) Click save as, assign a file name and I get ""File not found. Check file name and try again"" I can however save the file to my Downloads Folder, but no other. I prefer to save working files to my desktop rather than a folder, but I'm not fussed if I have to use a dedicated folder. It is as if Photo is not seeing folders / folder locations other than my Downloads Folder. All other apps I am using in terms of writing, are working fine. I have not tried Designer yet. Please note this is a Windows Issue in security - turn off controlled folders and the issue is solved. (thanks for the forum)
  8. I own Affinity Designer and use it to create wedding stationery which I outsource to a local printshop for printing. I always convert the documents to a PDF before emailing to the printshop and have never had any problems before now. This is what is showing up on their end (on my end it is just a nice white border). I have ungrouped every single element in the file and converted them all to curves. I feel like I've tried everything and I'm not sure what to do next to ensure it shows up correctly and can be printed for my customer! * NOTE this is a screenshot that they sent me. I do my work on an iMac and it looks like they use Windows but like I said I've never had any issues in the past with them!*
  9. I've made a document containing 4 artboards, all with the same layout etc. But when exporting to a PDF file their order has changed. Instead of seeing first artboard 1 to 4, I'm now seeing artboard 4 to 1. What am I doing wrong? MacOS 10.13.6 with Affinity Designer 1.7.1 Thanks in advance.
  10. I’ve had 2 problems when exporting. On 2018 iPad Pro - No mattter what format I choose - png, jpg, psd - the system hangs. Takes forever. on 2017 iPP - the “share” button finally lights up, but when I chose to save it to photos instead of a file, system crashes and picture is not saved. Save to files does work.
  11. Hello all, I noticed yesterday that both the current MAS and Beta versions of Affinity Designer will under some conditions output files of half the expected pixel dimensions than intended when using the Export persona. This only seams to happen if the documents dpi is set to 144 or 192. The attached test document is 34x60px (and contains 1 free chilli!) Set the document's dpi to 144 or 192. In the Export Persona, I set slice output options for x1 and x2 png. The x1 output is 17x30px : expected size 34x60px The x2 output is 34x60px : expected size 68x120px Export Size Test v1.6MAS.afdesign
  12. When I try and export my pictures, the shadow and glow effects always look really bad and not smooth but it looks fine before exporting. Here is an example of what It should look like: And here is what it looks like once exported: I am using Affinity Designer on windows I am fairly new to designing (as you can tell) so I could just have a setting wrong but it has been an issue that has been bugging me for a while now so any help would be much appreciated, Thanks

    PDF export takes forever

    Whenever I try to export something as a PDF it just kind of hangs up with the generating export animation. I’ve let it go for like a solid 10 minutes now. Any idea how I can make this work better? I’ve attached an image of my export settings while it’s generating. Any help is appreciated! Thank you.
  14. As someone who transferred to Affinity Designer upon launch, ditching the traditional Adobe Products that most of the industry utilizes I am, for the most part, thrilled with incorporating Affinity Designer into my workflow. However, there are two features that I have been longing for. The first of which is the incorporation of editable text in an exported PSD. Some clients desperately want the PSD files of all of the work in the final form, and documents with tons of text present an issue as all text now exports as a pixel layer. I know it is a huge coding ordeal, but it would be such a huge asset to us all. Please, in your next update try to incorporate this feature for your dedicated designers using your design programs so that we are not forced to find ridiculous workarounds. Secondly, I would love to see an option for batch exporting of artboards to save them as the individual artboard name in a dedicated folder. So much of my time is spent opening a new document and placing the contents of each artboard individually on a new canvas and saving them for client work. A batch save option would be extremely helpful, especially if the same options are available there like the ones currently available in the export menu.

    Having trouble exporting SVG.

    Hi loves! Super affinity designer newbie. I make logos for clients & for some reason having a hard time exporting to SVG.. I’ve sliced before on most of my designs & I usually have to do it a few times until it magically works. The specific design I created is like another I did & the SVG export worked. For some reason I can’t figure it out. I bought the book & super love it... but it doesn’t go into a lot of detail about exporting sadly. Please help. I will add file & hopefully someone can get it! I know I’m doing something wrong if I have to try to 20 times before not knowing what I did right. Haha. Thanks so so much! Untitled Copy_10.afdesign
  16. Hi I am completely new to illustration tools and Affinity designer is the first of that kind I have used. Idrew a picture using pen tool and was trying to export in svg format . It was not getting exported in the first place .I was not able to send it in the email as well.Finally it got saved in the photos but to my surprise it was rasterised version. Please help me understand what went wrong. Why was it not getting exported to file explorer or any other places . Thanks in advance
  17. Hey all! Just started trying out both Affinity products on Windows today and I've run into a snag with Designer. It seems that I cannot get my file to export as an SVG properly - the "embedded document" portion does not export. Is there a checkbox or step I'm missing?? I am able to export everything as a PNG if I don't resize on export - if I try to resize then the embedded doc portion again does not show up. I've attached the files I get so you can see what's going on as well as a screenshot of my layers in designer. Could also use a tip on how to set the exact artboard size - haven't figured that out just yet... Thanks! NewInterstate-v1.svg
  18. Whenever I click on export - the export box appears for a brief second then the program immediately crashes and I have to reopen Affinity Designer. I can't seem to export anything. I have tried deleting the program and reinstalling it. I am currently on 1.6.0 and running the latest Mac OS. Maybe there is an export setting I selected that the current version of Affinity Designer does not like. The last time I used Affinity Designer was for exporting an EPS project and I remember selecting File>Export>EPS>More and checking the Minimize Size option and unchecking Relative co-ordinates. Is there a way to reset the options so Affinity Designer does not load the last export settings I made? Here is a copy of the 'Program Details and System Configuration': Crash.txt
  19. 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
  20. Something strange I noticed when I exported a simple two page layout recently. Publisher didn't export the file as it looks in the program currently but rather as an old version from several days ago. I have never seen anything like this as I exported files in the past. Has that happened to anyone else? I don't use Publisher a lot but I thought I would try it out with a simple layout.
  21. My affinity jpegs are exporting are opening in the raw suit in photoshop. This is not good for clients, most of them will still be using photoshop. I need JPEGs to open normally in photoshop and not the raw suit.
  22. I've been having trouble with using artboards to create multi-page documents. Somehow the order of the pages is getting shuffled while I'm working, and when I go to export the whole document the pages aren't numbered sequentially anymore. I then have to create a whole new document carefully copying & pasting each page before exporting again. What am I doing to make the page orders get mixed up? Can I fix it without creating a whole new document? See my screen shot, although displaying correct on the screen, ordered as artboards 1, 2, 3, - when exporting, the artboards are shuffled to 1,3,2
  23. Hi I know there have been topics on batch processing but I keep hitting a problem, I'm wanting to resize and watermark my photos to send to clients, but when recording the macro it says it can not record the save instruction in the macro. is there a workaround for this, as it basically means you can not do any batch processing even though the option is there.
  24. Hi, Pardon my ignorance, I am knew to Affinity and picture editing, can you please tell me which options is more recommended or are they to be used in different circumstances? Many thanks and best wishes, Fabricio
  25. I have exported a PDF file from an Affinity Publisher Beta project and discovered some of the fonts (i.e. Georgia Bold and Georgia Bold Italic) have not embedded correctly into the file, yet other fonts have. I do not usually have problems with these fonts elsewhere. Are there still issues to sort in the Beta concerning exporting of embedded fonts?
