I purchased Affinity Designer several months ago to facilitate my web development flow while avoiding subscription-based software (Illustrator) and buggy freeware (Inkscape).
Creating web designs in AD is a superb experience, but exporting parts as SVG for web usage, often interactive, is an absolute nightmare. My workflow bottlenecks hard when I have to manually modify a majority of the elements within the file. Worst yet, if any design change is required I have to manually modify the elements again on a fresh export. To be completely honest, if Inkscape didn't crash and corrupt so frequently I'd put up with its awful UX purely for its web-oriented SVG exporting advantage.
Steps I frequently need to do manually for web usage and file size reduction:
Create style element and convert matching style attributes into shared classes
Reduce excessive tspan occurrences
Convert common positioning to group transforms
Occasionally convert absolute to relative coordinates (paths, lines, etc.)
Add custom attributes (ex: Vue.js attributes)
Remove AD attributes (serif:id)
What can I do within AD to reduce the amount of manual corrections on web-oriented SVG exports?
Are there any plans to add such features to AD in the near future?
A personal example of a prettified AD file without any other modification:
