Group Blending Incorrect in Exported PDF

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have encountered a bug where blending a group of layers results in an incorrect rendering when exported to PDF. This is using the latest stable version of Affinity Photo on Mac: 1.8.4

It seems to occur when a group of layers is set to semi-transparent and the group includes layers with blend modes (in this case Lighten). I have attached an Photo document and a PDF.

Sometimes the problem does not occur when different layers are active but I have not been able to track down why. This test case shows the problem in its most simple form.
