In Publisher, things looks pixelated when switched to Photo

Recommended Posts

When I was using Publisher, the layout looks fine in the publisher persona and also in Designer persona too.  But when I switched to the Photo persona, everything looked pixelated.   Is it a bug?  Anyone experiences the same thing?   How do I improve the quality in Photo persona?

The Publisher and Designer Personas display a Vector view of the document. The Photo Persona displays a pixel view, just as the full Affinity Photo product uses. You can see this in the Publisher or Designer Personas:

  1. In the Publisher or Designer Personas, View > View Mode > Split View will show you Vector on one side and Pixel on the other.
  2. In Designer, you can also choose specifically between Pixel and Vector modes.

This does not affect how the document exports or prints.
