  1. Affinity Designer Printing Bug After updating Affinity Designer from 1.9.1 yesterday to 1.9.2.1035 I noticed a major print scaling bug in the program. On print preview within Designer no red lines showed any overprinting errors. Long story short, items in Designer print out larger than set and thus get cropped out of print range on the right and lower edges. To be specific, I created a Letter document and populated it with an array of equally sized blocks for printing. Upon printing I noticed the right and bottom of the print were cutoff. After checking the document size settings, sc
  2. I don't see how to create a feature (object/layer) that is visible, but won't print.
  3. When you are printing an image of say 8x10 to a smaller format, say 7 1/2 x 9 1/2, do you desaturate the original image? And, if so, by how much? I am printing on a Canon Pro 300 and find that reducing the size of the image tends to oversaturate the colours. There must be some kind of formula for this.
  4. I have replaced my monitor and calibrated it. The Epson SC P600 printer drivers are good enough for most prints direct from the computer and if not Adobe RGB from Photoshop CS5 is also very accurate. I have noticed a darker green when printing from Affinity Photo, presumably because it does not convert from sRGB to Adobe RGB as does my CS5. Any ideas please for the best way to print to Epson Premium Glossy using Affinity Photo?
  5. I'm designing a children's book for a client and have run into a problem with our printing company. The first physical copy of the book we ordered had full page spreads that were not lined up properly in the center. I contacted them about this issue and they said it was due to the bleeds being incorrectly set up. I put the book together as spreads, and then un-checked "facing pages" so I can manually adjust the inner bleed for my full-page spreads on each individual page. When I put facing pages back on to see how it looks, the spread illustration flows across the page just fine. Howeve
  6. When I try to use the print function from menu or from shortcut cmd+p, I first noticed this when, I open a pdf file, and then try to print it, publisher 1.8.3 crashes. Even after saving as a publisher type file *.afpub, crashes after the file is saved as publisher type. I have noticed this is now happening with all documents, even those created in publisher. The work around, I have been using is to export as a pdf, and then open in another PDF reader like Preview or Acrobat, from which I can print. I'd be happy to test any patches or fixes. d System
  7. I am fairly regularly seeing a problem with printing from Affinity Publisher on my Canon printer. The document mostly prints OK but certain images - possibly rotated ones, overlapping ones and/or transparent-backgrounded ones - have strange omitted portions on the resultant print. It's definitely a Publisher issue, because when I export to PDF and print exactly the same document from Acrobat, the issues are not present. I have known this to happen across several versions of Publisher over a fairly long period (possibly as long as Publisher has been around) but not got around to
  8. I'm having serious issues printing borderless, and I don't know if it's my printer (canon 5150) or affinity. I've tried both photo and designer. I feel like i've tried all settings and it keeps coming out with a white border. I've tried scaling up, and the border stays the same. It worked once, without me changing any settings. I also had this issue a month ago, and it just fixed itself. When i first created this item it printed with no problems. The colours are also coming out 2 shades lighter. I urgently need this sorting, it's for a paid job, (I'm a small business artist) and it's needs
  9. When selecting a page size under the print menu there are about 100 randomly ordered options. Many of these I will never use, and some of those that I do (17x22) are difficult to find. It would be great (if it does not already exist) to have a way to edit and order this list.
  10. Hi, I'd have one feature request: it would be great if in the Publisher print dialogue, the print profile feature would not only save settings made directly in the Publisher print dialogue, but also those of the printer driver (e.g. paper type). Other programs (e.g. Adobe Lightroom) do that, so it should be technically feasible. Regards, Robert
  11. I'm new to this software and still trialing but falling at first hurdle. When I am adding an image to a letter it shows correctly until I print - then it misaligns. Can someone help me please? I've attached image to show my issues. Thanks
  12. Vector art & text look so crisp on my ipad screen. But when I print them they look low DPI and have jagged edges. Non Affinity Designer docs print fine, so it’s not the printer. I’m not printing directly from the app, or from my iPad, because AirPrint is totally (insert bad word here). I have already tried: Increasing resolution of documents to 300dpi, 600dpi, & 1200dpi. Exporting documents as PDF for print. Setting dpi in export settings to 300dpi & 600dpi. Setting Rasterizing in export settings to unsupported properties, nothing, and everything. M
  13. On numerous occasions I've had prints show the border lines of my layers. Now, I just printed a file and it's shows a dark box around the text. None of the layers had an outline in the file. This has happened with Designer and Photo. When I rasterize everything and make it one image, it solves the problem. I shouldn't have to do that. Windows Printer - Epson WF-7720 and Sawgrass SG500
  14. Hi I’m trying to print out an image which has been put together with various elements and text tool. I’ve done lots of others in this way but for some reason this particular one keeps printing out with a line through the same 2 words despite it not appearing on the screen....HELP PLEASE!!
  15. Hi, Potentially a defect but more than happy to eat humble pie if I'm mistaken. When I print the attached Published document, scan of print also attached, the font alignment and sizing is way off what was shown on screen. Is it me or is there a problem here? Thanks, Jon C WW2_Great_Grandad.afpub
  16. Hi I've been using moo.co.uk for making postcards from my photos for many years. They allow me to have as many different photos on the front as I have cards in a pack. I haven't seen any other company offer that, or I would probably just switch now. They recently removed the option "picture enhancement", which worked really well for my photos. The first batch of cards that arrived now has less contrast and less shadow correction than the earlier versions. I have not reached out to their support yet, but will of course. https://support.moo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360035605391-Dull-or-dar
  17. This may be a silly question but is there a method to print a facing page book (PDF) produced in APUB whereby it prints as you see on the screen. I am using Acrobat Reader to print the PDF and the printed out put is not correct.
  18. Hello. During the most common printing process in printing, i.e. per page and not per sheet as proposed by Affinity, the internal part of the page (the bleeds?) is moved to the opposite page when printing. Original in Affinity Publisher Result in PDF double-page display overflow.afpub
  19. Hi everyone, I'm having some trouble with printing to PDF. I want to print my files to PDF because that's the only way (I know of) to create digital files in booklet form with crop marks. The problem is, when I print to PDF, the colors in my document turn out way brighter and harsh than the colors in my document. (The issue does not occure, however, when I export to PDF the traditional way -- but I don't know how to make it a book/add crop marks in that case). Here's a side-by-side of the color it's supposed to be and the color it prints to PDF as on the right. I'm really n
  20. Hi. I bought Affinity Photo to make CMYK book covers for printing presses. They need me to provide a PDF complete with crop marks (and spine marks). They need these crop marks to reach the edge of the document like this: But when I export my file (whether I choose to "include bleed" or not) It always inserts extra whitespace between the image and the crop marks like this (where the yellow is the book cover's color): But I know that it's possible to get the lines flush with the image because I saw a video where a guy does it like this: So
  21. Currently I am designing a marketing flyer. It is square, 148 by 148mm, 3 pages horizontal and folds inward (left page on top, right in between, middle page bottom). I have created a page layout with the measures, but find no way to make the 3 pages show continuously side by side like a brochure with 2 facing pages. Is there any way to define a layout with 3 facing pages (or even 4 of them) ? In total I need 6 pages, 3 front, 3 rear. The bleed is just around the total layout, 2 folding areas going through, where the printed content can be continuous. My alternative would be to create
  22. In my previous post I received some help in regards to what settings to use in AD for your color profile, now as I continue to do my Lets Make Shapes project or Spacetronauts I realized that I can't put them on Redbubble or Inprnt because of different colors. Which the previous solution was : "The color profile you want to use as the Designer document is setup to use Wide Gamut RGB. If when exporting click on More and change the ICC profile to sRGB this should be closer to what you are wanting, for posting on the Web" - Lee D Now what I am wondering is what color profiles to
  23. I'm running Affinity Photo 1.8.3 on a 2018 MacBook Pro 15" Touch Bar with 32 GB of RAM under macOS 10.14.6 Mojave. Printing is excruciatingly s-l-o-w. For the print dialog even to appear took 1 min. 15 sec.! Savor that number. It means after clicking File | Print... I had to wait 1 min. 15 sec. just to see anything happen at all. Since the default printer is not the one I use for printing photos, the first thing I do in the Print dialog is change the printer. After selecting the printer in the dropdown list I had to wait 1 min. 20 sec. before the new printer's name replaced the old one's
  24. has anybody tried to proof a document with publisher? currently getting mad with this! having a dedicated rip i am trying to get an accurate proof out of affinity publisher with no effort. publisher seems not to be able to skip any color profile when printing - even when setting that colors are to be managed by printer, theres still a selection for a color profile that obviously interferes with the print and leads to wrong colors. is there ANY way to tell Publisher NOT to use any profile when printing to the rip???
  25. One of the things I need to do after outputting to PDF is check the PDF page boxes are correct before sending to a printer. (The boxes are: Media, Trim and Crop, and occasionally Bleed and Art.) I don't need to edit the boxes, just quickly visualize them and check the numbers (dimensions). This can be done with Acrobat Pro (or PitStop Pro in Acrobat) but I'm trying to dump my Adobe subscription and move to Affinity-only. My question then: is there any way in any of the Affinity tools to display existing page box layout and dimensions for a PDF? Opening PDFs in both Designer
