  1. Hi I'm unable to export this file to PDF: also trying a copy/paste of the whole content on a new file doesn't solve the problem (nor changing the destination of the PDF file) Error message is "An error occurred while exporting to:". Using Affininty ver 1.6.5.135 on W10 - this the only file with such a problem. Thanks in advance Regards Gottardo Cover BUG.afdesign
  2. When exporting as PDF for web it is default to only embed uncommon fonts. I have recently exported a file for web using Arial and, when viewing on iOS devices (possibly Android also), the "i" is missing each time it is after an "f" ...a kerning issue. Before, I only noticed that it effects font styles, but this is annoying. Couldn't it be default to embed all fonts in this situation? Otherwise I need to remember to switch it in the extra settings on export.
  3. I tried exporting a mock booklet I created to pdf but it wouldn't give me crop marks. Is there a way?

    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.
  5. Hello, i'm having an issue exporting a PDF for a print job. I have different layers for the artwork, the guide and the notes. When i export the file it is just a flat PDF with a white background, as apposed to a PDF that opens with the layers. How do i export with the option to show hide layers in other software, or even with a blank background? At the moment the white artwork just gets flattened into a white background and i'm just exporting a blank image. Thanks.
  6. Hi I'm trying to export my 4k document (3840x2160) to a PDF and then convert it to Illustrator and After Effects. However when I export it the output is resized to 1080 for some reason. If I export it to PNG it exports fime to the proper dimensions. Can you please help me? I've tried using max res settings as well as not rasterizing anything. I can resize the vectors accordingly so it's ok, its just an extra step that I'd like to avoid. Best, Michael
  7. When placing a PDF (advert) with bleed and crop marks, Affinity Publisher only places the file as cropped. Is this intentional? This is very unexpected and I can see how it can be useful in some situations. However, It is far more useful to me to have the bleed and crop marks showing. I have only been able to resolve this by converting the file to eps.
  8. I get an error when I export a document to pdf (for print) with linked Designer files. Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6.
  9. I am using Designer to make assets for a board game, and the slice tool is really great for separating into the digital vs print needs. However, when I open them to print, it's made assumptions about the scaling. I'm exporting at 300dpi because that's the print size but most are scaling them to fit. If I manually export, I can set the scaling and paper size. Is there any way for me to change these settings upon batch export? If not, does anyone have any workflow suggestions to do this? I can't be the only one with this problem.
  10. Right now I'm having an issue where all exported PDFs that have text won't print. To verify this I made a document with text only. It exports fine and displays in acrobat correctly, but as soon as I try to print acrobat gives a "This document could not be printed" error. Note I tried a variety of fonts. I also tried printing from other computers and I get the same error. If I convert all text to areas/curves it works fine. So it seems to be directly related to fonts. Any ideas?
  11. I'm combining vector shapes and vector brushes, both colored with the same spot color. After the export to PDF, the spot color is preserved in vector shapes with fills and basic strokes only. Vector brushes with textured strokes are still translated in to CMYK colors. Is this bug or missing feature?
  12. I have produced a pdf version of the Affinity Photo manual that you can read without starting the program. It can be interesting to put it on your phone or tablet to read when you have some time to spare. Since the file is too big to upload here, I have put it on Dropbox for you to download. It is current for the last version of Affinity Photo. Comments welcomed. Here is the link: https://dropbox.com/s/d3uxmmypdx9ruzw/Affinity%20Photo%20Manual.pdf?dl=0
  13. I encountered this problem and was able to track it down to an .ai file I had placed into the art. Removing that image and replacing it with a png worked like a charm.
  14. Importing a PDF or (the same file as) AI-File with some gradients bring a very disturbed result. Also the exported PDF looks like the preview on the screen. See attached screenshot. If I resave the .AI as EPS and import this to AP 1.7.0.293, the preview on the screen isnt very nice but close on the original - the exported PDF looks like it should. If someone of serif needs the .ai, please PM or answer on this thread.
  15. Hi there, I have multiple files and I want to join them together now. I can't copy and paste, or anything else. Merge files isn't possible or am I missing something? I work on different files so the software doesnt fill the ram to quickly (only 4gb). Now i want to join all the pages to create a single pdf and I don't know how to do it. Thanks edit: please change this to the discussion forum. Didn't notice that i posted on bugs.
  16. The bleed area on an image shows a darker tint when exported to pdf. Pierre70-uitnodiging-outline.pdf
  17. Still learning Affinity Publisher - great program for my needs and will be nearly perfect once the photo & design persona are added. This is my current (2nd?) edition of a photo-portfolio eBook. It's the result of my search for a better way to publish PDF eBooks.
  18. I have some content produced in Page Plus which I want to transfer to Publisher. As Publisher does not read Page Plus files I saved it as a pdf and imported. I had some text saved in a box which I wished to select and group together but this did not work, Publisher wanted the whole page or nothing. On the attached file I wished to select the individual items on the left side, also the "Marking System" part on the right hand side separately so I could move it to another page. prog19covermiddle.ppp
  19. .If you create a magazine with Affinity Publisher then you get font problems with importing PDF advertisements, the fonts are not displayed correctly
  20. I am opening a color book cover pdf in Photo. All colors are there except one in the graphic on the front & back cover. On the spine the logo vanished completely How do I see the green color in the graphic? Thanks
  21. Will Affinity Publisher allow the Author and Subject fields of a PDF to be set by the end user of Affinity Publisher, and neither left blank, as at present, nor autofilled, please? William Overington Saturday 9 March 2019

    Mangled Font Issue - PDF Export

    Two of us in the studio are running Affinity Designer 1.6 (latest update) on Mac OSSierra but seeing identical PDF issue when exporting. 1. New and legacy AFDesign files are manifesting same behavior when we try and export PDFs (using out of the box settings) 2. Fonts appear correctly in Affinity Designer but the only way we can export files and not have the messed up files is to export Text as Curves (not ideal) 3. We're running two separate computers with local versions of all fonts. Both computers have separately licensed versions of the software too. Exact same behavior in terms of corrupt / malformed PDF output. (See attached images) Please help — this has only appeared since 1.6 update. We rely on AFFINITY DESIGNER for client deliverables. Thx.
  23. Hi... I have a problem.... I'm trying to export a design as a PDF but one of the images is missing... but this only happen when i export in PDF, if the export is made in PNG works fine.. I'm using the 1.6.51.135 version. Check the video please. https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cqfXXzZoRp
  24. I like to export PDFs that are set for initial view of Single Page & Fit Page. Is there any way of setting that option directly in Affinity Designer (Windows)? Thanks!
  25. Hi I have a V E R Y urgent issue: I have to create a doublesided --book(let)-style pdf (that means imposed) but I can't create from the printing menu. Obviusly this function should be located there, as bookprinting is featured as an option. However I cannot select virtual PDF printer. I tried installing 4 different "virtual" pdf printers I found at cnet.com, but it didn't help. Can you please help me with this!!
