As an affinity user, I don't want to use adobe programs;-)

In my opinion its important for a professional application in print / prepress, that the possibility of single-page PDF is available.

I completely understand your needs. However, PDF format was authored by Adobe, it's an Adobe file type, it was made open source in 2008, hence why other applications can write to PDFs now. However, not all third party apps are good at writing/creating PDF files, nor are third party apps all compliant in viewing PDFs. Hence, Acrobat and Adobe are still a necesarry evil in this scenario. 

It's my opinon that I always open a PDF in Acrobat, it's the only true viewer of all PDF modules and components, considering that Adobe is the author of the PDF format, it's the only true viewer of actual content. Everything else other than Acrobat is a crapshoot in viewing/outputting PDFs etc.

And there's not really I or anyone else can do about that. PDF format is Adobe.

Right now I work arround this changing the document layout from 'facing pages' to single page.

The ability to output as pages and not just spreads will be added soon.

 

Pre-press often needs bleed on four sides of the page. Perhaps add a viewmode that allows for pages to be viewed next to eachother, but each having their own bleed that can be toggled?

Keep up the amazing work, love Publisher this far!

If you are on a Mac you should also be able to split a PDF using Preview, by dragging the individual page thumbnails out of the sidebar.  Only practical if there are a small number of pages, but depending on what you are doing it might help.

Just found the solution:

File / Export.../ Area (drop down menu)

Choose: 'All Pages' 

voila....

Trust this is helpful.  ~db

Maybe Really old threads such as these should be archived or filtered in some way to show that they refer to a previous version of the application?

Or, at least ones that have been implemented might be archived somewhere :)

(On the other hand, if it were not available, the most recent poster would have needed to ask, so having it available has helped them, and maybe others.)

Great!

I am a new user of Affinity Publisher and was just looking for this information.

Marvelous piece of softwear by the way.

If using Windows 10 have you used the built in Microsoft Print to PDF printer?

  • Click FILE - Print - From the PRINT window, select Microsoft Print to PDF as your printer from the drop down list
  • Select the range of pages you wish to print in the PAGES box. (This can be a single page, a collection of odd pages separated by commas, or a range such as 2-4.)
  • Change properties if you wish
  • Click OK (which will open File Explorer)
  • Decide where you want to save the file
  • Give the file a name
  • Click SAVE

I have been using this as a simple method of supplying all sorts of different documents as PDF's to printers for years.

I had the same issue, but I just discovered that you could take the following steps to export multiple pages as a single PDF doc.

First thing to do is, go to File > Document Setup > Layout

In Layout, check for the drop-down menu next to Start From

Select <Left> (changing it from Right - which is the default setting - to Left).

You'll notice that the pages kind of align or join to make columns of pages of however many pages you have.

*********** ADDITIONALLY *************

Not sure this'll make a difference, but I also did this:

Export the document by selecting: Shift()+Option()+Command()+S or go to File Export

Select PDF and in the Area drop-down-menu, select <All Pages>.

Put in the number of pages made in the Pages box. Then Export

And that's it! It should export as a single document. I hope this helps!
