Warp Group not Exporting properly on PDF


Recommended Posts

It is not clear from what little you have posted what you mean by deconstructed. Can you provide more info about that, & perhaps a screenshot showing the Layers panel of the Affinity file?

Did you use the Warp feature on the little chevrons at the bottom? Try rendering them out to actual curves before exporting to PDF. Duplicate the layer and do the convert to curves then hide the original, then export.

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

Hi the layers look like this. it's originally flat but I used the warp group to give it a curve that aligns to the circle.

I, the little chevrons are curves, on the pdf it shows the background image behind them though I took a small screen shot.

This, I believe, is because you are using a bitmap fill on your chevrons and raster fills are not currently supported when using a Vector Warp.

The solution (assuming the above is the case) is to apply the Vector Warp to your vector only chevrons first, convert the warped vector chevrons to curves and then clip your texture as a nested layer to your chevrons. This will visually give you the same effect (the texture itself won't have any distortion applied but you could achieve that in other ways) and more importantly will then export correctly to PDF...
