Dear All,


A. Situation

Being new to "Affinity" I am working to use this software instead of the big A package. Quite impressed and pleased by functionality, look & feel.

I often use this workflow

> import .jpg files > modify file > export to .pdf for archivation

Default settings used for export. I am observing that the selection area appears to remain somewhere in the backgrund of the file, causing unwanted small lines in the exported file. A sample is attached.


B. Configuration

OS: Windows 10 x64

Version: 1.7 (appears on 1.6.5 as well)


C. Action

Is the bug in front of the machine (as usual)? Is there any setting to avoid this behavior? Thanks upfront for any support.

Hi Joschik,

Welcome to the forums :)

This definitely shouldn't be happening if possible could you provide all the files in question regarding this issue and a screen recording of the steps you are taking to reach the end result? This will allow me to try it at my end and look into this further with you!
