pdf export results in two pages on one page

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After finishing a document, set to 'facing pages' I exported it to pdf.

The resulting pdf file shows 2 facing pages on a single page. The first (right side of facing pages) page is exported full size, though. The number of pages in the pdf is nearly half of the number of pages in Affinity Publisher.

According to the rulers in Affinity Publisher the facing pages are correctly sized: one of the facing pages has the size of a whole page.

Can this behavior be changed to facing pages each having the size of a full page?

@Roberto1972: Perhaps you want to export using the Range Area option of All Pages? [Edit: sorry; wrong term originally.]

The whole document was exported; it's just that each pdf page contains two Publisher pages. Only the title page (has no facing page) is full-size.

At least when I open the pdf in Sumatra pdf or in Vivaldi web browser.

Workaround: turning 'facing pages' off Publisher rearranges everything to single pages while maintaining the correct 'facing pages' master pages layout.
Exporting to pdf from here produces a correct pdf file but the original file contains single pages. Works but the rearrangement of the original file is not desired.

Sorry, @Roberto1972, I used the wrong term.

I am suggesting you change the Export dialog settings from:

to

which should resolve your issue.

I don't use that program, but I'm glad you got it exported properly :)
