I've got a bunch of files exported from Affinity Publisher that have all come out at the wrong DPI (all exported images are 96 DPI despite the documents being 72 DPI).

As I can't seem to find a solution to that, and I've already exported a bunch of assets, I'm attempting to fix these images via a macro and a batch process.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like that's going to be viable either.

The only way I've found to change the document DPI is through the resize document method, but this is unsuitable for use in a macro. When you run the "resize document" as a macro, it attempts to replicate the exact settings of the recording. This means instead of adjusting the DPI, and resizing the document in relation to that DPI change, it sets the DPI and scales the document to match the original documents size was at the time of recording. 

Is this intended behaviour? Could there be another way of approaching this?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums, @SudoCat.

Macros: Yes, that is unfortunately the way that Resize Document works when recorded in a macro.

Publisher: When you Export to PDF, on the More... dialog, there's an option to use the document dpi or a user-specified dpi. Perhaps you're specifying 96dpi for the images? If so, choose the other option :)
