PDF Export BUG. Critical.


Recommended Posts

It looks as though there is a bug rendering the Gaussian Blur you have applied to the stethoscope when using the following pdf presets:

  • PDF (Print)
  • PDF (Press Ready)
  • PDF X-4

I'm unsure the intended purpose for the graphic but if you wish to maintain the RGB colour profile of your source Designer document in the exported PDF using one of the Affinity PDF Presets then the following PDF Presets will work:

  • PDF (Digital - high quality)
  • PDF (Export)
  • PDF (Flatten)

Indeed... It seems to be a bug when applying the blur to the group... if you apply the blur to the individual layers within the group (and remove it from the group itself) then it exports correctly.

Interesting, I copy/pasted the graphic into V1 and all pdf variations exported correctly so there ‘appears’ to be a specific issue with the V2 exports…

Not suggesting there isn’t an issue with V1 but having previously tested this in V1 I don’t recall it being quite the same issue though I could be wrong…

So did I, and they exported incorrectly. That's on MacOS Catalina, and I can only preview the PDF in Preview.app, because Acrobat X doesn't run on Catalina.
