See attached screenshot: My publisher document is 1024 x 720 px, one of its sources 1455 x 2000 px. According to the "ressource manager" it is placed with 219 dpi. How can that be?
Facing the pixeled output in Macs Preview (up left) you see it's definetly coming out with 219 or worse - its a 100% jpg.

Any idea what could be wrong? All Affinity products are uptodate as well as my Mac Big Sur is.

Thanks and all the best, Sebastian

If you Select it in the Layers panel, and is the Move Tool, you should have a box on the Context Toolbar that will give you additional info about the current DPI and some scaling info that may help explain it.

Hi @Leaving-Adobe,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Sorry the delay getting back to you, most of us have taken a break during Christmas/New Year.
From your screenshot the dpi should actually have increased since you scaled down the image in your document. Do you mind attaching the .afpub file for inspection please?
I can provide an upload link if you wish to keep the file private - just let me know. Thank you.
