  1. You'll see 5 layers. The word "Annie" has a different color on each layer. I also noticed in the new version that exported layers, the names of the layers did not all persist. Some of them were duplicated and others just said "content". I included the exported PDF that is not showing layers. affinity_layer_test.afdesign affinity_layer_test.pdf
  2. Okay, I think I solved it. Strange solution but it worked. I had to create a new document with exact same document preferences (size,etc.). Then I recreated each layer by cutting and pasting between documents. Everything was exactly the same. Then I exported to PDF and the layers suddenly appear in Acrobat Pro. All I can figure is that the original Affinity file was created using the older version of Affinity. It didn't matter whether or not I saved it as a new name, it simply would not yield layers. But when I created a fresh file and copied the layers one by one, it worked. Strange. Hopefully it will continue to work moving forward. Thanks for your help.
  3. This is exactly what I was expecting but I can't replicate. After export there are no layers in Acrobat Pro, yet I can see the layers when exporting from Illustrator. I tried exporting using file/export. I tried creating slices for each layer, then exporting. I tried exporting with no slices. I get the same thing every time; a flat PDF without layers. I'll keep searching as I must be missing a button somewhere. Thanks for your fast reply.
  4. Did this update come out with v. 1.4 in December? I can't find it.
  5. Thank you so much. I'll give it a go and post back if I have problems. Cheers. :)
  6. Great! Thank you. I can wait until the stable version is released. That's great news.
  7. Is there a way to import Illustrator color profiles into Affinity Designer? Like many others, I'm migrating from Illustrator and I have color profiles from my printer that I need to import.
  8. I have created multiple layers in one Affinity Designer document. I want all layers to be exported into one PDF such that when I open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Pro, I can see each layer in the layers tab. My UV printer recognizes each layer of a PDF to differentiate gloss, white, and CMYK inks (3 separate layers, but all in the same document). I can export the document using file/export in Designer, but it saves everything into one layer when viewed in Acrobat Pro. I can create 3 separate PDFs using the export panel, but then I need to merge them in Acrobat Pro or Illustrator. Am I missing something? Thank you.
