Hi,

A hiccup in trying to use Affinity Photo in my pdf-to-EPUB processing workflow, in which all my text is being exported from my layout app as transparent background pdfs, to be converted in AP to png and resized.

Every text box that has a feathered edge, is getting a hard outline at the outermost extent of the feather - ie where the feather is transparent. This same effect doesn't appear to occur in Photoshop. It occurs in AP with either a batch processor, or opening a single file. Attached is a comparison of the same file opened in both Photoshop and AP, with the same dpi and size settings for rendering. (the photoshop file has a layer of white added behind, to show up the lack of artefact.

A white feathered box gets a white bounding outline.

Any thoughts?

(edit - genuine textbox from the book, not a statement towards the any reader of this :))

thanks.

Just bumping this topic, this issue is still present in 1.7.1.

Any feedback on whether it's likely to be addressed?

Thanks.
