I've just started using Affinity Publisher.  After spending a great deal of time on this project, I tried saving it in a different format to send to the customer.  I can only save in the .afpubs format which cannot open if you don't have this app.  I tried to export to another format, I tried to change the extension, but nothing is working.  In addition, when I opened the design this morning, what is seen in the top middle (in brackets) of the page was not there when I closed it last night and the animals were not blurry as seen now.  Can someone please explain how to save in a different format, preferably pdf so that I can send.  And how that extra page in brackets was inserted into the image.  I didn't do that!  Is there a way to switch this entire image over to Affinity Designer.  I'm more familiar with AF than AP.  Thank you for your assistance.  I'm adding a second image so you can see the difference.  I just noticed that the horizontal line toward the bottom has changed.

File > Export should let you save it in a variety of formats.

Thank you for responding!  That's what I thought, but I have no options.  Also, did you see the difference in the images?  Why is that picture in brackets at the top and the same in the horizontal line toward the bottom?  See picture job SAVING options.

I'm not sure how, but the proper file suddenly appeared without the glitches!  After reading other post, I was not the only one with this problem. Thanks if you took the time to view!
CASE CLOSED!!!

Okay thank you, I will!  Oh that's what I did at first...EXPORT!  It didn't work.  For whatever reason it's working now.  Thank you for responding!
