Affinity designer export to pdf taking hours

Recommended Posts

Exporting to PDF has been giving me issues for a while now. I'm using latest Affinity version and have laptop, windows 10 with 16GB ram and graphics card.

When I export a file to PDF for print I experience transparent PNG's showing a black background when printed, etc. I therefore export using PDF/X-3:2003 which seems to work well.

However, what took me a few minutes to export before (probably the ver9 of Affinity) now takes an hour or more. (The Affinity file size is 75mb and exported PDF is 19mb).

My laptop also seems to use all its resources too and slows everything down making it hard to use while I'm exporting a file

Any ideas of what I can try?

Hi OldGoat,

Its possible that there is a font conflict or a corrupt image that is causing your lengthy export times. If possible could you provide a copy of the Affinity project file so I can look into this further with you?
