  1. I've been having trouble printing 8 x A5 pages on both sides of 2 x A4 sheets. (A step-by-step guide would be useful) )I thought I had cracked it but the printout looks like this. Why the small font size? Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Happens occasionally. Seemingly at random. This is how a 1 pt stroke prints. Using latest verion of Designer on Windows 10. Vector file attached. print error.afdesign
  3. Hello, new to Affinity Designer here. I'm very happy with the software so far. I have however encountered what appears to be a bug. Unwanted lines are appearing in a very specific way. The lines are not present on screen, but when printing out I'm getting a fine white highlight on the top edges and a dark line along the bottom edges. The layer that is doing this is a simple black fill with the layer opacity set to 8%. Does anyone have any ideas how to prevent this? Thanks.
  4. The programme should have icons that are always visible for things like Printing. To constantly go through File>Print> etc. is time consuming.
  5. I am having the same issue, whereby a document created in Affinity Designer, some images are Jpg and some are PNG. (see attachment). I export the document to a PDF and the PNG images print black around them, it doesn't matter whether I export for print or web or 192 or 300. Visually on screen and in the exported PDF there is not a problem. Only on the printed document. I have had HP online today working on this problem thinking it is the printer, they have re-installed the drivers and it is still happening. This did not happen 6 months ago. I had printed a document out 12 months ago, no problems, then had to edit it and re-print a few months ago and this problem started occurring. I am using an iMac with Catalina installed, but this problem happened before that new operating system. I am using a HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 printer. I have been creating these documents for some 5 years without problem. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
  6. It is a well-known flaw of PDF that it does not print what you see if transparency is involved. As I am using transparency in my drawings with AD, my question is if there are workarounds? I would like this workflow: 1) Make a drawing in AD with multiple art boards. 2) Export that as PDF (for print, web, ...). 3) Print it, or send it to a printing company. Notes: Please, do not say "Publisher", my computer is an iPad. My book printer only accepts PDF (in RGB only - but that is not the issue here). What happens is illustrated in the two images below. The original TransparencyTest.afdesign as well as the generated PDF (for print) are also enclosed. The dark image is the printed one. The other is a screen shot of the same PDF file and looks as intended. Clearly, PDF is not wysiwyg. We look at this, back to front: The right side has an opaque, white rectangle in the very background. To make sure the problem is not a black default background. We see that is not the case, the right and left sides of the image look the same. The blue background is a gaussian blurred rectangle. Clearly PDF print handles the print wrongly. The 4 smaller snowflakes are embedded PNG which are transparent outside the actual snowflakes. The layer of the two light grey ones are partially opaque. The dark grey ones are fully opaque. In front, white vector drawings and a bit of text. They look as they should. Apparently, transparency through partial opaqueness works fine. The faulty darkness towards the boarder of the semi-opaque ones seems to be the wrong blur-darkness shining through. Transparency from Gaussian blur fails. Is there a viable workaround? Transparency of PNG fails. Is there a viable workaround? Before you suggest that the printer or the driver are at fault, please try to print it on your own printer. Ι have tried to print from different computers and to different printers, all fails. Best regards, Hans TransparencyTest.pdf TransparencyTest.afdesign
  7. Normally I don't work for print, so this is probably the first time I use print in Affinity Designer. I have a file with a simple shape on it only and when I try to print this to the printer the following sequence is consistent: - Printing the first time: Affinity Designer doesn't do anything, the printer isn't printing - Printing a second time after this: Affinity Designer crashes and closes itself completely Trying the above steps again after restarting again and again everytime the exact same thing happens. The printer is working fine, never had any problems with it and when I print with other software there's no problem at all; the printer immediately prints without any problem in other software. See attachment for the used designer-file. testfile.afdesign [edit] The problem seems to be in the custom printer profile file. When using the default settings there's no problem printing. But when using an earlier saved printer profile the problem as described above arises. I've compared the settings of the default settings with my custom printer profile, but the only thing that's different seems to be that the default looks at 'defined by driver' for paper format and the custom profile is set to A4. But when I set the default profile to A4 too it still works, so that's not the problem. The only difference I notice between the profile-settings and the default settings is that in the graphic dotted red lines appear when using the custom profile from the dropdown. Not sure what that means, as all settings in all tabs I compared seem to be exactly the same. I get the impression the older printer profile files are not compatible with the latest Designer version or there is a problem in loading/interpreting the profile file correctly? This is how the graph looks in default settings (I only changed paper size to A4 here, but it also works when set to printer default): And this is how the graph looks with custom settings loaded by profile (see red dotted lines) Here's the profile: my-print-profile.profile
  8. Hi, I used the print function of Affinity Publisher to print a page with an image. Unfortunately, diagonal lines are printed in steps here. This is also visible in the PDF export and can only be fixed by deactivating the image downsampling. Is there also the possibility to deactivate downsampling in print. Many greetings Christian Mertens
  9. I am making maps for RPGs and would like to be able to print the grid.

  11. Hello, Designer is practically perfect for the kind of jobs I do. However, I would like to suggest adding a "save print profile with document" option for Designer. This would be very time-saving and avoid slip-ups when printing documents/projects like business cards, envelopes, etc. directly from Designer. It would avoid having to click into the printer driver UI every time the document is to be printed, perhaps only to find the profile missing for one reason or another. Cheers, Dave
  12. Hi, I am new here. I jusr recently purchased Affinity Publisher and I am starting to use it for some black & white typesetting. However, as soon as I started with some tests, I can’t seem to be able to print the text pages (Black only) on my laser printer and ensure it actually comes out as Black. It always prints screened, at a percentage which seems to be about a 90% Black. I have searched the forums and Google to see if other users had encountered a similar problem, but I can’t seem to find anything. I tried to set my document both with CMYK and Gray color format, to no avail. I also recreated the Black from scratch, giving a value of 0-0-0-100, but it prints in screened dark gray both if I use a "rich black" or a 0-0-0-100 CMYK Black. I am using Publisher with an old Mac Tower and operating system El Capitan 10.11.6. The problem seems to be with Affinity alone, as my old InDesign prints the Black correctly.
  13. Hello everyone, From today i believe i have to start sharing few of our design works (actually i'm working alone but i do build a team from time to time depending on project size ) Most of our client/requesters are Church based and we really enjoy doing stuffs for them but what you will se here is more about Smarty Studio standing with other studio/teams together into what is to become Congolese Design Style. Well each country have it's own style of design but Congo doesn't have a proper thus most of Congolese designers simply clone/copy styles from everywhere. This is a beginning, please your inputs on each design palet/kit will be of great help and will help us improving better. Blessings !
  14. I'm having trouble figuring out how to export a JPEG for print. The document is set to print and is 300 dpi, however, when I save, the image is 72 dpi. I don't see an option in the save settings (attached).
  15. Every once in a while I end up with unwanted printed pages, due to (what I consider) two counter-intuitive default settings on the print setup form: 1. After each print the "Range" option is reset to "Document" and the "Pages" field is cleared. Consequently, when only select pages of a multipage document need to be repeatedly printed out, it is easy to neglect the change and the whole document is printed 2. On the other hand, the "Copies" field is not reset after printing one batch, so it is easy to overlook this, particularly when printing from time to time or when working with several files. In combination, these two "features" can result in even more wasted pages, as happened to me several times. I would suggest considering the following changes: a) keep the "Range" setting and "Pages" field unchanged over a session, unless the file for print is changed; these should be reset only at restart of Publisher b) the "Copies" field should be reset after each print
  16. I have a similar issue. When trying to print the preview is just all red and the printout comes out black. Printer Canon MG6350 OS - Mac Catalina 10.15 Affinity - 1.7.3
  17. I have a 28 page booklet in A5, therefore it requires A4+ paper as it has bleed, but not on all pages. It prints OK locally using "print" directly, but on trying to export to PDFX1A (or X3/4) for my pro printer the result is the spreads come out in normal sequence, not imposed for printing double-sided. Have I missed something as a new guy on the block, or is this a missing feature ?
  18. Hi Folks, one question: i exported a 2 page testfile pdf with pulisher. Even though the 2 pages have the same the content elements/type (cause i copied them), in the exported pdf the right/second page has sharp text, the left page on the other hand is pixelated. What i am doing wrong:-)? Greetings from Germany Jo 20190925_Broschuere_148x148_2TEST.afpub 20190925_Broschuere_148x148_2TEST.pdf
  19. Hi all, I am having difficulty getting affinity to print photos correctly after editing in affinity. Specifically, if I make an adjustment layer of say a 'high pass filter'. The adjustment shows fine on the screen, but is ignored by affinity when sending the photo to the printer. It also seems that the adjustment type doesn't seem to matter, but what does matter is if the adjustment is applied through a 'selection' tool area of the photo on it's own layer. I have checked through the forum and have found that exporting as a TIFF format and subsequently printing through mac 'preview' does seem to work. However, I am using a high end Epson (SC P600) and would like to be able to take advantage of the printing options within affinity and of the printer. Any advice on how to ensure a layer gets printed through affinity would be welcomed. Thanks. Details are:- iMac retina 5K, MacOS High Sierra 10.14.6 AFFINITY 1.7.3 Epson SC P600
  20. Hi friends. I'm curious to know why this warning is showing when exporting pdf files from Affinity Publisher? This is so disappointing. I don't want anything to be rasterised Is there any way to turn this option off? TIA!
  21. Hello - I'm on an iMac Running OS X 10.9.5 with 12Gb RAM and a 2.5Ghz Processor. Bought Publisher recently however it crashed every time I send something to print (and sometime when I import a PDF). The crash report indicates something is wrong in so far as it says "error for object 0x608000c53230: Heap corruption detected, free list canary is damaged." Can anyone translate or advise please. Screen shot of page one of crash report attached.Thank you in anticipation.
  22. I'm using Publisher to print 30 booklets, A5 on A4, and it's taking ages. I'm using an HP Photosmart B110a from Windows 10. Why is this, and is there any way to speed it up?
  23. Hello, I am trying to print a document in A4 format, with the drawing in the center, but the print makes it small and on one side of the A4, someone would know how to let me touch to make it correct. Thank you
  24. I'm using the latest version of Affinity Photo (1.7.2) and, when I try to print, Affinity crashes.
  25. Hi, I'm using Affinity Designer on both iPad and Mac. Most of my designs are created on the iPad, then I move them to desktop for final touches and printing. I've had a couple of instances now where a font prints differently to how it's shown on screen. Examples are in the image. "Don't squat on your spurs" is in a font called "Old Standard". The 'Regular' variation prints with the letter U in outline, whereas the 'vintage' variation does not. "Give me your braaaains" is in "Dreadful" font which is in two parts. The white is in 'regular' which is behaving OK. The red is in the 'Rot' variant which lays over the top of the white. The 'M' and 'N' appear to have slid sideways in this case. I tested printing from the iPad and in both cases, the files print fine. (Unfortunately I can't seem to print in high resolution from the iPad or I would just do that, but that is a separate issue). So I think this is a desktop-only problem. Does anyone have and fixes or pointers, please? Thank you.
