Hello guys, fist of all i wanna congratulate for the great work you're all doing. Im sucha. big fan of affinity now, but im here to say abou a BIG bug that i found in one work here.

Im doing a print work for a product label here, and when i close the pdf file, the text become pixels, and this canot happen.


I saw some UI problems too, the option to reduce the resolution, is always checked with the compression value of 85%, and because this is a print work this option reduce the quality of the print.

When i try a lot of configurations for print, the software give a error saying that is not possible to create the file.

And at least, i spoted some colour error when the material was printed in a professional printer service.


The black in the art made a kind of grey colour appear.


Im using this settings to export the file (i used always in Illustrator)


- CMYK colors

- 300dpi

- Color Profile US Coated (SWOP) V2

- PDF/X-1a


I will post my open art, and the PDF exported for you guys see what happen ok?

To finish this job i needed download again the illustrator :( but i wanna migrate to affinity as soon i can. You guys rock.


This is all for now.

Keep the good work

I had the same bug.


I exported the PDF with File-->Export... instead of the Export Persona.

After that there were no pixels anymore :)
