Publisher - white (irritating) border


Recommended Posts

Hey!

I have an issue someone may help me with:

When I add e.g. a colored rectangle to a white page and I want it to cover whole with I still see a small white border on the edges. The white border is viewed even if I strech the recangle outside the edge of the page.

Unfortunately this does not only apear while working but also when i export the file as pdf (digital). I have no margins, bleeds or anything set (all = 0).

Can you help me?

Thanks!

Like @Joachim_L I am old and need glasses, and like him I too cannot see a white border around the rectangle. Could you upload a screen grab?

When you say “white border”, do you mean what I’ve highlighted in my first attached image?
If so, this is just Publisher telling you where the edge of the page is.
They should not be seen when you export the document, see second attached image.

The meaning of this "white border" becomes more obvious as being the page edge only if you untick "Clip to Canvas" to display objects outside the page.

p.s.: An additional page contour will appear if you add a bleed to your document via "Document Setup...".

I do see the edges when I export as digital pdf. Pls see the file attached.

Any idea how to change that?

This line appears to become created by the used PDF viewer app. You can try another viewer.
(I don't get it for instance with Acrobat but do get it with macOS Preview)

Still no white borders for me in Adobe Acrobat Pro. Could you show a screenshot how it looks in your PDF reader please?

hmm, thats interesting, indeed there are no edges in your view.  I only have Adobe reader at the moment and I use Windows 10. But even if I manage to change the view with another pdf reader, its not about mine, its about the view of others...

The white border you see in your PDF viewer may just be an artefact of a combination of how the viewer is displaying the PDF at the scale you have set and your eyes.
The software may be trying to interpolate between black and grey and coming up with something that looks white but might not actually be white. In other words it might be just an optical illusion.

ok, I changed the adobe reader settings from standard to "dark grey" background. And yes it is getting better, in case of a colored (red) rectangle I dont see any edges, in case of a black one I still see some.

So guess it is not affinity causing the issue. Mabye its just my monitor, however, I never noticed that before...

Thanks to all responders for your efforts!!

No white border on Preview for MacOS...

Possibly an improvement in your macOS 10.15 ? – In 10.14. I get this contour...

... but can reduce it to appear at the top edge only with a different render pref setting:

Hi Amir Anderson,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
These are PDF viewer artefacts - some are better than others displaying PDF's. It also happens with PDF files generated/created with third party apps not just Affinity. There isn't much we can do about it.
