non proportional scaling

Recommended Posts

I think that indicates that you have Placed or Pasted an image, and then you have resized it without maintaining its original aspect ratio.

If you've done that, then when you look at a page, and select the image, you'll see something like this in the Context Toolbar, showing unequal DPI settings: image.png.b6febbbeaa10743b4b13b29db7f41338.png

To fix it, double-click on the message in PreFlight, and it will take you to the image. Then click the down-arrow in the Context Toolbar, and click Original Size. Then, if that's not the size you want, readjust the size, taking care to preserve the aspect ratio. That will mean either not pressing Shift while you do it, or pressing Shift while you do it, depending on your Preference settings:

what should i do when i get this as a a preflight in affinity publisher?

thank you

You can always Ignore. Then check the export to see if it is okay. The images will be stretched in one axis and that is why the warning is coming up, you may have done this intentionally so ignoring the warning is one solution. A better solution would be to render the images in place in a copy of the Publisher document first then export that.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
