Hi,

I found a bug in Designer 1.9.1 on MacOS. Basically when I try to export an .afdesign file which contains vectors with contours, designer won’t export the file as .pdf, just do nothing. I mean, do not execute the exportation process. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling designer from Mac App Store but still remains the problem.

Hi LegendofJuli,

Does a new document with some basic shapes export correctly for you? Can you attach a copy of the document you're trying to export please? Without this we cannot investigate as to whats going on!

Thanks for the file - it looks like the sheer amount of nodes on the 'Save Water Drink Beer' and 'I Just Want To Die' contoured objects are causing the exporter to take a long time in calculating the nodes required. Deleting these layers allows me to export - see attached file resaved without them. I've also highlighted the huge amount of nodes. I'll pass it on to development to investigate, but I would definitely look into trying to clean up the geometry for those objects. As it looks like they're just the sticker backgrounds you could probably remove most of that interior geometry. as its only the outer shapes that you really need.

Please do!
Upon inspecting the original  stickers_tabloide.afdesign file, visually this looks to me as the very same problem as the zillions of superfluous nodes and short "mini-curves" that are being created when using boolean operations, especially when several curved objects are involved. The latter being a serious issue that still hasn't been fixed since … how many: six years now…?
