Hidden Layers exported in PDF print despite hidden and made not visible in export

Recommended Posts

How to only export certain pages (artboard layers) to PDF print in Affinity Designer?

Layers are made not visible in Designer Persona. In Export Persona, layers are made not visible in export. Upon Export to PDF print, do not export hidden layers box is selected. And yet the whole document is still exported in PDF print.

Am I missing something or is this a bug?

(By the way, overall Affinity Designer is a really good software)

IMO it is a bug. Basically "Dont' export layers hidden by Export persona" option checked, when an artboard itself is marked to be hidden, should mean that the whole artboard is ignored when exporting, but instead an empty artboard (PDF page) is created. In Export persona, there is an icon in the leftmost column of the Layers panel that indicates that the artboard (layer) will be exported, but I do not know how this icon can be turned off. Making the artboard itself invisible for export should be enough to do that, so that "Dont' export layers hidden by Export persona" -- when unchecked -- would only operate as an override, but when checked, would fully honor the export persona setting.
