Publisher Slow Down on PDF Export


Recommended Posts

I recently created a customized magazine for a local artist.

I edited photo on PS CC 19 then loaded them to Affinity Publisher.

When I hit the Export (Screen shot 1) and then it takes nearly 20-30 mins to create the PDF. It stays as shown in screen shot 2 then slows and takes more than 30mins actually.

All the images I upload average 2.0MB file size. Also I noticed color changes on Affinity Publisher

(Photoshop CC I edit with Profoto Color space)

I really appreciate any tips and help here 

Kind Regards

(**I been doing this for last 18 months and this happened for the first time )

Hi @Priyantha,

Could you provide me with the .afpub file along with a screenshot of your PDF export settings in 'More'? I've provided a private dropbox link below if you wish to upload your files there.

If you have any linked resources it would be beneficial if you could File > Save as package and upload the packaged file. 🙂
