PDF exporting error


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I don't seem to be able to export a very simple affinty designer document (a few lines and text) to a pdf. It works if I export it to jpg, but when I try to export it as a pdf ("for print" preset), it says "An error occurred while exporting to: *folder/name_of_thefile*

I've tried on 2 different computers, and also with a new file where I copy-pasted the elements of the first file and it's getting quite frustrating... how can I fix it ?

It works fine for me, but I don't have your font.

A couple of thoughts:

  • You might try clicking More... in the Export dialog, and scrolling down to the Embed Fonts setting, and changing it to Text as Curves. If that works, it tends to indicate there's a problem with using that font.
  • You might try following the instructions in the FAQ to enable PDFLib logging, and see if the log provides any hints:
