After big projects comments on pdf and pre-flight

Recommended Posts

I am really impressed with all the Affinity products and after completing some big projects in Publisher I have reduced my Adobe subscription to just Acrobat, a real vote of confidence in you. Here are two things that would make my life easier.

First and really important; an option to place pdf files with embedded fonts working. This is the default in InDesign and QuarkXpress. I receive lots of adverts for programmes and newsletters. Most are in pdf format and many of the advertisers are very creative in finding typefaces that are hard to source and a pain to keep track of on my system even with Suitcase Fusion. I am working around this by saving to eps with fonts converted to outlines but this simply should not be necessary.

Secondly there is a beginning of a pre-flight system in a warning that frames have overset text. But this warning doesn't say on which page the overset text is on. Giving the page number would be a real help with long documents.

A big thank you to all at Serif

Or even better a "Go to" button. Show the page at fill screen zoom and highlight the Layer in the Layers Studio.

Until then what I do is set the Zoom to Show Document and have Show Text Flow turned on. Lots of red dots show the pages with the overflow text.

I absolutely agree. Just trying to export a large document, and I'd really like to not have to look through every page to find the overset text box.

Of course, a preflight feature would be quite handy to answer this kind of question, too...
