PDF issue: Content will be cut


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I am having another issue regarding to PDF export. The content of a sheet is separated and does not appear completely in the PDF.



Preview is fine but exported PDF not. It does not matter if I choose that font shall be embedded, converted into curves and/or different PDF compatibility:



Please find attached the native Designer v2 file and an exported PDF.

I am unsure if it is related to the warp tool.

It is related to elements modified with warp tool. I have tested to us a text following an eliptical shape. There were no issues like in a.m. case.

Hi Rene. FYI this has been reported by many others so it's already on Serif's list. The workaround for now is to convert the warp group to curves before exporting to PDF. I tested this with your document and it worked fine.

If you may need to edit the text again in the future, don't save the document after converting to curves, or better yet, duplicate the layer and hide one copy.

Hi @ReneCGN,

Thanks for your report and our sincerest apologies for the delayed response here. We are exceptionally busy following the release of V2 and we thank you for your continued patience and understanding here.

I can confirm this is a known issue, which is logged with our development team - I'll be sure to 'bump' this with your file now, and we hope to have this fixed ASAP.

In the meantime, the above workaround from MikeTO (Thanks Mike!) should allow you to export your document as expected :)
