I get an error when I export a document to pdf (for print) with linked Designer files.

Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6.

Thank you Gabe,

After the last update of Publisher I don't get the errornotification anymore  But the export doesn't work as should be: I don't get an pdf exportfile.

Greetings,

Tine

When I choose PDF(flatten) the export is ok. But when I choose PDF(for print) I don't get an exportfile.

I can export your .afpub with print preset.

Since I don't have your used fonts, all text results in Lucida Grande. – So might be a font issue. Have you tried with another font?

You're right! I changed the font and the export is ok. The name of the font which gives the problem is Might Makes Right BB (Open Type). Strange, I have never had problems with that font in Affinity Photo and Designer.

I'm not entirely sure why, but with your fonts, it does not work. However, it works fine when I activate them from the Adobe CC font manager. Have you tried to uninstall/reinstall them ( perhaps from a different source?)?

No, the fonts are working fine so far, except with Publisher. I have deadlines and I do not want to risc anything so I didn't "touch" the fonts.

I am able to successfully export TineB's layout document with both default pdf print preset and as pdf/x-3.

Font activation with Suitcase Fusion 6.
I haven't downloaded TineB's file from Designer, so I exported with missing resource from embedded only. (and font "Armalite Rifle" missing, used for headline "versterkingen")

Also a new custom font-test .afpub exports fine for the font "Might Makes Right BB" in all 3 weights.
In my font-test document I also used two fonts which had failed in an earlier beta. Now in v312 one of them works fine ("aaaiilight!), the other ("Univers 47 condensed light") still gets curved when exported as PDF/X-3.

TineB, recently someone posted in the forum about solving an export font issue simply by de-activating and re-activating a font in the used font manager. Such trial should not be harmful at all for you.

You were right. The reinstallation of the "regular" version solved everything. It works fine now. Thank you all!
