  1. Simple request would be that the rasterise feature actually acknowledge the bleed associated to the document. Currently it takes the trim size but for print related work it would be far more functional to be able to place elements into the bleed and then when rasterising have the finished article have the bleed included. All the best, Mark

    Bleeds

    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
  3. Using 1.6.4.104, Windows10, Epson SureColor P800, Xrite 1iDisplay calibrated 4k monitor I'm seeing very strange color shifts and a much lighter image printing using the app for color management. I'm choosing the correct Epson provided profile. When I let the printer control color it is fine. Is this a known issue? Any workarounds?

    Soft hyphens are printed

    Hi there, if I insert soft hyphens in any text they get printed no matter whether the words are split or not (see attached photo). Best, Volker
  5. At present the print dialogue always defaults to Document. I would prefer it to default to the currently selected / active Artboard. (Obviously this would not apply in a document that has no artboards) Thanks for your consideration.
  6. I have a simple document comprising 4 symbols… Black rounded rectangle White rounded rectangle (actually off-white) Blue Donut Red Diamond Everything looks fine on screen (within AD). And it all looks fine when exported (as a PNG) But when I printed the .afdesign file from AD this happened… All the Donuts and Diamonds have a visible lighter area (square in shape) around them. Some of the donuts (bottom row and right side on black)) have the white inner reflection visible within the hole of the donut. Some of the Diamonds are incorrectly filled with the red gradient (bottom two rows). Some of the Diamonds that are incorrectly filled show the white inner reflection while others don't. Since these are the same two vector objects in every case, how can they print in so many different ways? Why did it happen? And most importantly, how can I get it to print correctly?

  7. Hi - I’m a print photographer, primarily, and have just discovered Affinity Photo for the iPad Pro. I’m considering my workflow process and would like to move away from editing on the desktop as the Mac pencil is just so amazing and easy to work with. Does anyone have experience editing and then printing strictly off of Affinity Photo tablet? Curious of the quality (are the prints true to color/expectation?) and ease of sizing, etc. Any thoughts or stories of success / failures would be extremely appreciated. Thanks, Trxr
  8. I have been trying to print to 4"x6" paper from the upper tray of my Canon iP7250 printer, but every time I close the printer preferences and reopen them, I find that they have reverted to A4 from the lower tray. I have tried enabling "shrink to printable", but that makes no difference. The printer still insists on printing from the lower tray. However I have been able to print successfully to 4"x6" paper from the Windows photo viewing app. I should add that I am using the Windows version of Photo. One thing I have noticed is that when I select 4"x6" in the Canon printer preferences, the print size in the Affinity Photo print dialogue changes to "custom", not 4"x6". How can I make Affinity Photo print onto 4"x6" paper?

    File printing 'double'

    Hi, I am testing a PDF for print and depite looking sharp on screen (and having embedded the font) the print comes out 'double' giving it a blurry effect - screenshot attached. I checked other documents to figure out if it's the printer and the other documents don't have that issue at all. What's causing that? Thanks
  10. AD's "print range" feature when printing set to "document" results in an usable rectangle centered on all artboards rather than printing an artboard per page (or at least offering that option). e.g. currently designing a tri-fold brochure, so I need artboard 1 to print on one face and artboard 2 to print on the other. AD only lets me print one or the other via manual selection, while selecting the desired "document" range results in the following: This is what my artboards look like, each is an 8.5x11 document:
  11. Hello there, I installed the attached ICM on Windows 10 and associated it with the printer. The AD print dialog does not allow selection of this profile (though it shows other user-installed profiles such as the one for my monitor). Xerox VersaLink C500_C505.icm

    Print multiple

    Since getting a new pc running Windows 10 I had to duno Photoshop 5 and buy x8. On v5, to print multiple pics on one page was simple. Using the one image already in use, select file, print multiple then slot the multiple layout you want, slot the image in the with one click load up more picks and slide each one onto the page and print. easypeasy. In x8, having loaded print studio and selected a multiple print layout (but not my favourite 3x2 eight to a page) when I slide a pic onto the page every time I try to fit it into a slot or rotate it I get a dialogue box telling me to insert a number. But what number and where??? Now all the other buttons are dead and I can't get rid of the damn dialoge box Is it x8 or my age (73) or that a stroke killed me and the right side of my brain
  13. Hi I am a very happy user of Affinity Designer and Photo and very much looking forward to Affinity Publisher. Would it not be a good idea (for what it's worth) to complement that excellent Affinity Suite with something like a PDF Creator with Affinity typical Workspace, tools and bags of userfriendly features ? I would definitely be the first in line to buy.
  14. Hi, I'm using Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo at my MacBook. I want to print a detail section of my paper in Affinity Designer. I noticed, that my origin print menu ist missing! As I open: "Menu" - "Print", then open up my Mac only grey simple print options of Mac to choose printer, paper size, paper orientation and so on. There is no longer the black menu for detailed print options of Affinity Designer with adjustments of "Full Paper" or "Section of paper" or "print without backgound" or "resolution" and so on. (sorry to my bad translation, I don't no the english words. hope you know what I mean.) Recently, I updated to High Sierra. Is there any correlation? Can you help me how to get the black detailed print options of Affinity Desiger back? RegardsAnit
  15. The default "stock/generic" color profiles available to choose from for printing do not include any CMYK options for color laser printers, only a variety of RGB profiles.
  16. Greyscale become multicoloured when printing from Affinity Designer. Obviously a conversion to/from color profiles happens inside Designer. How can I prevent this from happening? (This happens to all colours. It is just shown best with greyscale.) My printer expects data in the same colour profile as my AD files working profile. (ISO coated v2 (eci)) When exporting a PDF/X1a and printing with Adobe Acrobat everything is OK.
  17. Is there a tutorial anywhere on using Affinity Photo to print the inkjet equivalent of darkroom test prints? That is, using a small sheet of paper to get print variations on a selected area of an image. I want to make some A2 prints on my Epson P800 printer. My tests so far have not been what I wanted, although my monitor is properly profiled and I’m using the correct ICC profile for the paper. So, rather than continue to waste ink and paper, I was hoping to use a key area of my image and print a strip series of variations on e.g. an A4 sheet to decide on my best settings. Thanks!
  18. Hello :) I have created a document containing multiple pages (12) in size A4, each page on its own art board. The print shop wants me to send a PDF (or the original file) in size A5. I have looked and looked... and still can't figure out how to either: - resize my original A4 document to a A5 - or export my original A4 document to an A5 - or export my original A4 document into a A5 PDF - or if there is another way... I thought that A5 is simply half an A4 and it would be easy for the printer to simply downsize, but apparently it doesn't work like that so... I need to send that file YESTERDAY so... help me please :) Thank you

    Poor print quality

    Hello, I just tried to print something that I have prepared from the latest version of AD 1.6.1. While on the screen the design looks good, when I am printing it, the quality of the fonts is very poor. They look sort of "pixelised" or out of "focus" if I am allowed to say. When I am using to print from any other application, the quality of the same font, or any other fonts looks as it is expected to be. Definitely, it is not a printer problem. Am I missing something or is it a bug? Best regards, A. Ps. This is an image of the print page.
  20. Hello! As a Fine Art Printmaker who uses Computer Design tools to create prints for Screen Printing, Lithography, and Intaglio, CNC woodcut, it would be amazing if I could separate colors and control half tones size shape (line, dot, etc) and color. I imagine being able to work in CMYK layers and being able to apply color halftones to shapes based on percentages, or change the size and shape of the individual color channel half toning. It could be applied in any document setup really RGB document with a simulated color / spot process: Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple, Green, Turquoise, Grey and control the halftone percentage, size and shape. grey scale: black, 25% grey, 15% transparent white LAB would be fun, you could control the lightness darkness of the halftones maybe have an option to constrain the gamut inside of lab to a specific set of colors like CMYK but still have lightness control. In my imagination the possibilities are endless for options like this. "MOONSHOT" : to have RIP like printing control inside this program, where I wouldn't have to worry about the printer I am on to get circular halftones (this might be next to impossible but I am ignorant when it comes to the programming side of hardware interactions) this would be just insane and might require a new type of universal file format I have no idea but it's something I dream about, being able to go to Kinko's or some other local digital print shop and be able to print out my files without having to worry about the print shop getting the settings right in their computers and on their printers, the employees being inept, or any other stupid thing that happens because you don't have enough money to buy the hardware that you need. and finally "MOONSHOT": A new type of color selection palette based off of a Warm/Cool, light/dark, transparent/opaque warm adds red cool adds blue lightness adds white darkness adds black transparent/opaque self explanatory but the twist is you pick initial colors as a base and those colors become the colors you base rest of the interactions between the colors on like paint For example: Here is a shorthand RGB two way conversion to Paint/Ink color palette equivalent Red (Pantone Uncoated 032) Yellow (Pantone Uncoated 123) Blue (Pantone Uncoated 300) Purple (Pantone Purple) Green (Pantone Uncoated 354) Turquoise (Pantone Uncoated 312) Grey (Pantone Cool Grey 8) 100% opacity White 15% opacity White mixed or printers black (R 54, G 54, B 57) Black now imagine you have picked these colors as your initial palette and have set them inside of a grid each color has the same basic controls warm/cool: add red/add blue light/dark: add white/add printers black transparent/opaque: increase decrease transparency/opacity Now for example you activate the red, white, and yellow channels you now adjust warm/cool light/dark transparent/opaque sliders around to just work within the constraints of those colors selected from you base palette this gives you a sub palette of yellows oranges and reds based of your real world/RGB equivalents this would work for CMYK as well This would be a great tool to have I think Thank you for reading and for your consideration Nathan Henry

    icc printing profiles

    Any chance of incorporating the option to manage printing with icc profiles totally within the iPad app? E.g. when i use the print dialogue i am given the choice of printing as is and letting my printer do all color management or applying an icc color profile to my output and let the app control the colour output? Cheers in anticipation
  22. Hello, I have .pdf file (which was converted from HP plotter's .plt format ) with one big vector image. I need to print this drawing to A4 papers and I need to get exact the same size. PDF-file is relatively big (about 150 x 200 mm) and probably it will takes about 15-20 pages in A4 format.. I've created empty Affinity Designer's file (150 x 200 mm) and dragged pdf to Affinity's window. Then, I've turned the Grid on and resized the image to get the size what I need. I have one test-square (5 x 5 cm) on the image which helped me to get the correct size in Affinity. Now I need to print it but I have 2 problems. 1. How to print this file with correct sizes, in order to get the same 5 x 5 cm square on the paper? (when I try to print I can see only one page which hold she whole document) 2. How to split this document into several pages and re-save it to multipage .pdf where each page will be the part of an original image but in A4 format page? Many thanks. Probably Affinity Designer is not the best solution for this purpose but it was the only software which I have where I was able to resize the image properly.
  23. Hello, Is there a way to export a document (book cover - 3 artboards), with bleed (5mm)? The only thing I have found is this: ...and it does not work for me. Either this method neither normal method (jus exporting PDF with print marks checked in options does not work. AD exports image to the exact size of documents, no graphics in bleed area. The impossibility of exporting my work with bleeds for print is a disaster for me. Please help, P.
  24. Is it possible to create a shape from an outline in Affinity Designer? For example if I have a straight line with a set stroke width of 12px which isn't a "closed shape" like it's needed for certain printing techniques: is there some way to create a closed shape from a line with stroke, in this simple case 2 points (line from A to B), to have a shape without outline, with 4 points and a width of 12px? Without doing that completely manually? Edit: Ok, forget it. Found the option in the layer settings via the upper menu. At first I looked in the context menu of the layer, which didn't help much.
  25. I have a document that has grayscale images and when I export it as a PDF X/4 the images are CMYK. I open it in Acrobat and preview the images to see this. I have a black spot color set and the vector object are just black. What is a solution to this problem?
