Hi everyone

I just updated to Affinity Designer 1.7 on my iPad and noticed that my multi-artboard PDF documents in both the export persona and file > export only export as a continuous document with individual artboards pasted to one page, rather than a page for each artboard. 

I also have an issue (one that I have had since using the application) with selecting text on the exported PDF pages. When trying to highlight text on specific documents I export, it will highlight the entire page—making it impossible to copy or select anything at all. I’ve tried troubleshooting the issue myself, but no luck.

If you all can help me here, I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Hi ChristianR, not much you can do except Export artboards individually until they fix this bug.

With  the text, I exported some text as PDF and placed (embedded)  the PDF back in the original file. Double tapped the embedded file to open it and I could then select individual letters (note they are objects now, not text). Used back arrow to return to main document.


IPad Pro 10.5 512GB iOS 12.3.1 Affinity Photo 1.7.2.150 Affinity Design 1.7.2.4 Publisher for iPad ?

I am facing the same problem as well - no chance to export a multipage PDF, instead getting one MASSIVE PDF the size of my entire workspace.

Hi ChristianR, Flololo,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
We are looking into this issue. It should be fixed in an upcoming up

When do you expect to solve this issue? Need to export a 120 pages book. Right now, affinity is useless for me. It is possible to go back to the previous version? The update is really bad. My work is almost impossible right now. Going back to AI.

I just updated to the newest version, the issue is still not fixed!

 

Can you please advice when you will fix this MAJOR problem or exporting artboards as separate pages or if its just all of us doing something wrong in the export process? Multi page PDF is the most important tool in a Design software workflow event if I understand you probably would prefer people to switch to Publisher instead of Designer for books & portfolios....

Same issue, and in need to export a multi page PDF :(

For now you'll need to Export artboards individually until they fix this bug in an upcoming update.

Hi everyone,
This issue was already fixed in the internal builds. A customer Beta with the fix should be available soon before we officially release it as an update to the retail versions.
Thanks all for your patience and support.

Hi MEB,

Thanks for updating us. Do you have any updates on the text issue? Since I send the documents to large quantities of people, it’s important that they can select and copy text.

Are you all looking into this? :D

Hi ChristianR,
Somehow I missed that paragraph, sorry. For me it copies and pastes all elements on the page, not just the text I highlighted/wanted. I believe that's what you are referring to correct? or aren't you able to copy/paste anything at all? Do you mind attaching a sample afdesign file for us to check please? Thanks.
