Affinity designer 1.8.1 export to pdf does not embed fonts

Recommended Posts

Normally export works without a problem using the presets. Can you please upload an example file here?

I think this a known problem of the Mac App Store versions of 1.8.1.

Ok, so it is a bug then. Should I report it somewhere?

Here's the workaround I used to end up with a pdf that does have embedded fonts:

- Open the affinity designer file in affinity photo

- Export the artboard as pdf from affinity photo


I think the reason that this works is that my affinity designer installation is a purchase from the apple app store and my affinity photo app is a purchase from the https://affinity.serif.com/ website.
