Hi

I am very new to the app and publishing. Can anyone explain when I export from Publisher to pdf everything looks OK. But if I open the new PDF doc in Affinity Publisher some letters/words are garbage.

PDF opened in Affinity looks like this:

 ' Christmas BriĜany Break

This is a good opportunity for a relaxing break aĢer all the Christmas shopping has been done and before the arduous Christmas fesHviHes begin. It’s also a chance to stock up with some keenly priced French goodies, wines, cheeses, etc and enjoy a typical French dinner before deparHng. We are oĢen asked why we follow the same programme each year. It’s simple - it works! '

In Affinity Publisher original doc and exported PDF looks like this:

' Christmas Brittany Break

This is a good opportunity for a relaxing break after all the Christmas shopping has been done and before the arduous Christmas festivities begin. It’s also a chance to stock up with some keenly priced French goodies, wines, cheeses, etc and enjoy a typical French dinner before departing. We are often asked why we follow the same programme each year. It’s simple - it works! '

 

Font used in Affinity Publisher Calibri --  So it seems to export OK just an issue if I open the expected doc in Affinity Publisher.

 

Thanks

I am guessing that there is a ligature for the tt in Brittany and one for ft in after. This is put into the PDF and then misinterpreted when the PDF is imported. Have you tried the Editable Text checkbox on and off.

Thanks for your reply I tried various options but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

You might also try, when exporting the PDF, disabling the setting that embeds only a subset of the fonts:

Thanks for the reply. Where do I find that, is it in Preferences?

It is in the Export dialogs.
