  1. Trying to export a publication that has a placed PDF marked to be passed through using any of the PDF/X methods (PDF/X1a:2003, PDF/X3 or PDF/X4) causes immediate crash of the app as soon as the option is selected from the drop down.

Thanks for the feature, I did not expect this to happen pre v2!!!
  2. Hallo zusammen, mal schauen, ob es hier auch eine deutsche Community gibt Ich hatte mich so drauf gefreut, nach InDesign mein erstes Projekt mit dem Publisher umzusetzen.

Among other things this profile checks the MD5 checksums of the used ICC profile against a pre-defined list of profiles known to be appropriate for offset printing. When exporting a PDF as PDF/X-1a with the ICC profile ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) from Affinity Pub
  5. Hi Affinity Team, I am having some issues with PNGs with transparency. If I add these PNGs inside a CMYK document and export them as PDF I get different colors behind the transparency of the PNG. This happens when I use the format PDF/X-1a:2003 or PDF/X-3:2003. If I use the PDF/X-4 the transparency problem does NOT occur. I am also having these issues with other pixel graphics as well, when I use blend modes like multiply. Please check the files attached to see what I mean. It would be great to fix this issue since most professional printer would like to have
  6. Most of the PDF export options in the Affinity apps are pretty self explanatory but for the PDF/X… options? What advantages/features do they offer? And in what use cases may these be better export options to consider?
