Lineart bitmaps

Recommended Posts

Seems like it doesn't support lineart as InDesign or Illustrator does. If I place a 1-bit lineart with high resolution (600-1200 ppi) in ID, it is automatically transparent and I can place a 300 ppi color file under it. When I export this to a print PDF the bitmap stays a bitmap and retains it's high resolution. This doesn't happen in Publisher, it rasterises the bitmap and I don't get the transparency when placing it which leads me to believe something happens to the file at import. Or is there something I have missed?

This feature is essential to illustrators and comics artists. I'm a teacher and would love to be able to recommend your software to my students. Please make it happen in both Designer and Publisher!

Thank you, Annukka

1-bit lineart support has been missing in Affinity software all the time, but in Publisher support for it is essential. Translating bitmaps to RGB is just not the way this should work.

also AfP do not support bitmap image. I've worked for a while with comics and can not convert grayscale images to bitmaps. It would be essential to have this feature in AF Publisher and Photo
