  1. Warning for output condition by Affinity Publisher "For preflight with PDFX-ready preflight profiles, a warning about the output condition for PDF/X files of Affinity Publisher V1.7.1 and V1.7.2 will be displayed with the message "!output condition not recommended for printing (unknown ICC profile)" is generated. The MD5 checks totals of the Affinity Publisher output conditions do not match the values of the Orignal ICC profiles. There is a risk that subsequent color servers or output systems will also use these hash values to determine whether the output condition matches the desired target profile. If they are not the same, a color conversion is triggered. Among other things, the black structure of the original changes." Source: https://pdf-aktuell.ch/pa/language/de/warnung-bei-ausgabebedingung-von-affinity-publisher/?highlight=affinity%20pdf Is this a known problem? For me, this error can be reproduced 100%. The fact that Publisher does not 100% passes the standard test for PDF/X compatibility after the Ghent PDF Output Suite 5.0 (source: https://pdf-aktuell.ch/pa/language/de/katastrophale-pdf-x-4-kompatibilitaet-von-neuem-affinity-publisher/?highlight=affinit) would not be so important to me, because otherwise the publisher will deliver good PDF results. But the output-conditions should be right.
  2. In an attempt to get my head around Publisher’s PDF export behavior (compared to Adobe’s which I’m rather familiar with), I stumbled upon this thread which only touches some of my problems: Some settings in the export process (under File > Export > PDF > More) don’t seem fully developed yet, so I hope to find some clarity here: PDF/X-1a: The standard only allows CMYK and spot colors, so the options “As document” and “Grayscale” don’t make much sense, right? PDF/X-4: The standard allows several color models, but if I want to output CMYK-only (despite enjoying other X-4 possibilities), then I’d expect the option “CMYK” to yield a CMYK-only PDF. This only happens as expected if I choose to “rasterize everything” which is never a true option with my kind of projects. In other words: Why can I choose between three options when according to standards there’s only one possible result (= X-1a), and why is there only one result when according to standards there would be at least three options (and Publisher lets me even choose) (= X-4)? What part of the story did I miss, or am I just too deep into Adobe thinking to realize that what’s going on here is perfectly reasonable? Or is it really? Is it like “take it or leave it” – if I want CMYK-only files, I have to deal with losing transparencies and all in X-1a, and if I want e.g. transparency maintained, I have to accept all other X-4 possibilities not as options but as obligations? I admit I’m very used to (and have grown very fond of) the Adobe approach of being able to throw anything into a layout regardless of resolution, color model, file format, and ICC profile – and only having to decide in the very last seconds what to get on the far end. Thanks a lot for any insight!
