Something is wrong with my afdesign document. I usually export to pdf and everything works fine. I tested exporting to png and the operation finishes smoothly. The point is some document areas seem pixelated, like stains, while the rest of the pdf looks good. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Hi Clara Montseny,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Are you using Layer effects, blend modes, complex gradients (certain types are not exported as vectors) or other features that may force the rasterization of the layers? What PDF preset are you using to export the file? Without seeing the afdesign file is difficult to guess what may be causing it. Any chance you can upload/share a link to it?

Hello MEB,

Unfortunately, I didn't use layer effects, blend modes or complex gradients. And for whatever it is worth, all the contents have been created in vector format. I'm using 'PDF (for the web)' preset. If I select 'pdf (for print)', it looks good. Do you mind if I share it with you by private message?
