Hello, i have a little problem. I came here from adobe illustrator and I have the problem with export for printing.

 

I wanna have pdf with print marks and graphic fill all the paper, not just resize by print marks.

Hi bollix,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

When exporting to PDF click the More button and check Include printers marks - then select the options you want from the checkboxed. There's also an option to Include Bleed there if needed. Note that there's no bleed preview on canvas at this point. It will be added in a future update. You have to use a rectangle shape (no fill, just the outline) with the document dimensions + bleed area and "center" it around the document to use as a bleed preview.

myclay, I do not understand your point as relates to the thread.

 

AD can set whatever you need/want for bleed and include it and the trim/other marks in the PDF. That's not the issue in the thread in so far as I understand it.

 

But yes, I use the equivalent of 3 mm for both bleed and safety. I have gone larger due to what I was creating (large format, billboards, etc.). But never smaller and have never personally had the requirement to do so. Most of the print establishments I work with don't even want the print marks included and in a properly made PDF (such as AD generates) they are not necessary. In the service bureaus I have work for in the past, we never even saw the trim marks/etc., produced by any software unless we opened the PDF in Acrobat or the like. Imposition software by default disregards those items and uses the "page boxes" that are defined in the PDF but not shown.

 

Mike

Have you:

A ) ...specified a bleed distance in Document Setup?

B ) ...actually bled your image off the canvas? (it doesn't look like it's bleeding from your images... unless there's more of it than seen in the AI version.)
