  1. In the print dialog while specifying the N-up layout, when I indicate a value for skip, the preview does not show the skip unless I close the dialog and re-open it.
  2. I'm very new to the AD world and I could use a little help. I have created a business card design. How do I get that design to print like 8 on a sheet? So that if I were to send this design to a customer, it would be print ready? Right now it's just a single 3.5×2 design.
  3. How do I "flatten" all layers before exporting / PDF'ing so that I do not lose resolution? Problem: Sending 8.5x11 manuscript to Kindle (KDP) for print on demand (book). When using Export->PDF(print) some lines on diagram are not appearing in digital proof. When I use the Export->PDF(flatten) the resolution is too low / diagrams are pixelated. For example: PDF(print) is crisp PDF(flatten) is blurry
  4. It seems that Spot Colours in eps files are not supported... If I import/place an eps file with spot colours defined, these spot colours aren't imported into the swatches panel. If I select "Create Palette From Document > As Document Palette" I get a whole list of colours, none of them actually appear on the page. If you want to delete this palette, this doesn't work: Select Delete Palette from the Swatches Drop down menu, a pane appears asking you to confirm that you want to delete the palette, click "Yes" and thePalete is still there. The eps file seems to have been converted to a CMYK object because if you export the page as a pdf with "Honour Spot Colours" ticked it outputs the spot colours as cmyk. So you can't print separations from the pdf file.
  5. Now working with bleed ist much better but: by printing with scale or shrink to printable the (activated) bleed still isn't printed. AP doesn't care for the bleed while scaling the document when I scale it manually to a lower percentage I can see the bleed and it will be printed it would be verry helpfull to get marks on the edges to cut the paper in exports now the the bleed is showen when activated for export, but here also the marks are missing We are on a good way! :-) Roland
  6. I understand that the print layout is in the Print dialog because it relates to printing, and that the Layout could be different each time, but I also find it clumsy. I would like to create Layouts that I could save and use over, or use to make another Layout by just changing a few parameters. I would also like to see a more graphic interface. The print preview in this dialog is ridiculously small, and almost useless. The old Page Plus did this much better. Although I specify a Paper Size: “Letter”, the Width and Height shown in this dialog are GIGANTIC!. (see the attached) Since I already created a left margin on the page, I shouldn’t have to do it here on the Print dialog, but I must to make it work.
  7. I now foud out how to enable bleed (it would be nicer to configure it while creating a document than have the need to enter the document setting dialogue). I don't like the way it's been shown when actice in view but I think that's because I'm used to the way InDesign does it. But I can't actually print or export with bleed also I switched it on to export or print with bleed. Roland
  8. I am not able print double-sided brochure. Printer output is flipped upside-down. The 'Double-sided' option has not affect on printing. Print dialog setup Output from duplex printer
  9. Hi, I just start with Affinity photo and was mainly only using Lightroom previously while I plan to quit it to Capture one+Affinity with the aim to mainly finalise my work on printings much more than online gallery. That's where I get some fever since I really don't master the printing process and until now mainly used experimentations until reaching an honnest result but I really want from now on to do it more "professionnaly" and mastering the things more than letting it to destiny and luck dispite it always keep a part of mystery that I appreciate and open new persepectives. A good mistake is always a source of inspiration... Where I feel the need to share those existential stuffs is the tip and tricks I were using on lightroom doesn't work anymore with affinity and as some people know here, Studio pro doens't get along well with Affinity. I'm searching a solution either include in Affinity or a dedicated software to print and give me all power on function of the printer and color managment while neutralising all parameters include in the driver set up box. I don't understand why after spending that much of time adujsting and tuning a picture, printers managment is that much chaotic in amateur world whith possibility to set the same ICC profile in different places and creating mess while you choosed in both places the same profil or choosing mat or bright function in driver window instead to have one window that controls all at once. It drive me crazy and lost to spend that much of time when you already sweat quite a lot on your editing and post processing. Please, HELP!!! Sorry for this approximative english
  10. 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 !
  11. 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
  12. Hey guys, I have a problem when trying to save pdf for print. I had successfully done this before, a number of times, the same exact way and this time it just doesn't work. Maybe It's something I'm missing here, please help. So, here is my problem. I am trying to save banner design with 3cm bleed and crop marks. I did set up bleed to 3cm in Document setup, I did include bleed in export pdf options, and I did make my elements bigger than artboard. And my bleed is still not saving... What am I missing?
  13. Like many people, I've struggled with PPI/DPI and how they affect print quality. The discussions I've seen here are usually actually about PPI and include the advice, "You don't need to worry about DPI unless you're talking about printing," and then they don't mention printing again. But printing is exactly what I'm interested in. I think I have a grasp of the fact that AP says DPI when it means PPI, and that I don't need to worry about what DPI AP says my image has until I'm ready to print. But when I am ready to print, I don't see anyplace to specify what DPI I'd like in my print. It's not in the Canon printer driver and I don't see it in AP's print dialogue. When I was using Adobe, I saved every image I worked with at 300 (DPI? PPI?) and then when I printed I didn't even think about it. But all the discussions here (and the video tutorial Understanding DPI) make me feel really sure that I have absolutely no idea what DPI I'm printing at. (My prints look good, but I'd still like to be clear about this; maybe they could be better.) So how does one properly print at 300 DPI?
  14. Hi there! I've encountered some little glitches regarding the handling of text (and text frames). Nothing dramatic, however, it could be improved: Working with the German edition of AD the local decimal seperator (a comma instead of a dot) is accepted in almost all input fields, but not in the input field for the line height in the context menu (see screenshot). When editing text the viewport does not move along with the cursor. One must therefore manually move the document up or down by using the scrollbars in order to be able to edit text that is within the same frame but outside the current viewport. And soft hyphens still get printed (already reported previously). Best, Volker
  15. 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
  16. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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?

  20. 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
  21. 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
  23. 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:
  24. 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
  25. 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
