Export using the PDF/X-4 preset error

Recommended Posts

I am able to export my document using the Export PDF Print preset. But when I try to export to the PDF/X-4 preset, the "calculating file size" dialogue never completes. When I Export I get an error message "An error occurred when exporting" - not very helpful!

I have my document set up for Coated FOGRA39

Any ideas how to approach this?

I have the latest version of Mac Affinity Publisher

If you can PM me a link to your file, I can take a look. Also let me know if this is on macOS or Windows.

If you can also try making a copy of the file and open in Publisher, if you have any embedded documents/resources, try Rasterising them (right click layer and select Rasterise) and then try exporting to PDF X4.
