How to save settings used in PDF export?


Recommended Posts

When exporting a PDF, the default seems to be "All Spreads." Is there a way to save a preference such that the "All Pages" setting is the default instead? Or do I have to select "All Pages" from the menu each time?

I'm referring to Affinity Publisher and I don't see how to save this setting in version 1.9.3.

Thanks for any clues.

No. It will always default to All Spreads.

I'm sure you can find existing Feature Requests for that.

Me too. Actually it's hard to understand that with the initial concept "by design" …
pages are remembered while area is not, and
… only settings in "More" are savable but those in the step before can't be included in the existing feature of custom presets.

Odd: Pages are remembered – even if Selection is used:

That is quite annoying / cumbersome for exports of selections  which get fine-tuned repeatedly, e.g. exports as image.

Now that you mention it, am I the only one who finds Affinity's "export as image" functionality to be … a little puzzling? For example, sometimes when I make a marquee selection and ask to export as a JPEG, there is an option to choose selection only; whereas at other times (within the same program and within the same file) there is no such option. At that point the only "choice" is to export the whole document.

Quite possibly I am doing something incorrectly.

Do you mean the 'running ants'?

I haven't experienced yet that a layer selection can't be selected as export area – unless I forgot to indeed select objects before.

However, this is the Q & A forum. To force it as feature request feel free to add your vote in the thread linked above. A "+1" note is sufficient to bump it up.
