Issue when exporting to PDF if image bleed hazard exists

Recommended Posts

Sorry I'm a relative newby to Affinity Publisher, but couldn't find an answer in the FAQs...

I'm working on a photo/text book and desire some photos to cross the page boundary and over into the other page of a spread. The printer requires a pdf of the book, so I was running some tests of the story so far but coming up with an issue...  The preflight checks indicated a bleed hazard for those specific photos, so I tried to ignore this.  When I progressed to create the PDF with "Publisher" it would stick with a continuous rotating wheel on calculating estimated size.  If I ignore this and go to exporting it would then produce an error message "An error occured while exporting" .  I was able to narrow this error down to only those pages with the spread images.

Could anybody please advise me of how to avoid this error and successfully export a pdf file (stage by stage ideally as I have not found my way around the many, many, menus yet.)

Other than that I'm loving the program....

Thank you Lee.  I just uploaded the [zipped] package in a shortened form of the book, but which still shows the two issues at my side.

I look forward to hearing if you can recreate the issue, and what can be done to resolve it. 

(edit... I just noticed the text overflow from removing following pages.  This is not the issue, but please feel free to remove the offending text to see the issue properly)
