  1. Fortunately not on a deadline. I just don't enjoy spending hours trying to fix what seem like export problems. It is what it is. Thanks!
  2. This kind of workaround should not be necessary though, should it? ETA: I've run into something similar before with a curved line, and printing to PDF didn't help. :shrug: I fixed the problem on my own, through a bunch of trial and error.
  3. I've tried to find answers to this issue, but couldn't find anything. I can't export vector art from Affinity Designer, nor Affinity Photo (V1) without straight lines becoming distorted. The output has to be .png. My standard file dimensions are 36 inches wide by 24 inches high, at 300 dpi. The exported file size is not large - 250K. Because of print limitations, the art is designed in CMYK, then exported using an sRBG ICC profile (because that's what I've been told to do.) Is this a known issue, and has it been fixed in version 2? I haven't downloaded version 2 yet because I'm waiting until I have time (most likely after the holidays) to learn the new version and set it up a new computer. Would rather avoid having to install it on my current system. See the attached file. All of these weird looking lines are straight lines - no curves. Operating System: Windows 10
  4. I have a drawing tablet, but it was not connected when I experienced the shortcuts ceasing to function. No custom keyboard shortcuts. I don't know what "AHK" is. I'm activating the menu using the right Alt key (have never heard it referred to as "Alt-Gr"; it just says "Alt").
  5. Sorry I haven't been speedy enough for people. I don't monitor the forum 24/7 and I don't get notifications when someone replies. While people have been speculating about my alleged reluctance to upload a file, I've been busy trying to figure out what changed between yesterday and this evening, because I'm no longer seeing this problem at all now with my latest effort to create a working master file, from which I'll create other images by changing the colors. There's nothing that makes me crazier than intermittent problems that suddenly appear and disappear for no discernable reason. Unfortunately, I've already trashed the old nonworking files now that I have a new working master, so can't upload them. But since you've asked, here's a file. Maybe someone else can replicate what I can't now. Also, I probably won't be back on the forum again until sometime tomorrow. Master20.afdesign
  6. I guess you missed my post that detailed the specific scenario where the shortcut keys stop working entirely. Since I'm apparently the only one experiencing it, I guess I'm just stuck with what I've got.
  7. I've tried rasterizing before exporting to png. The result is the same as what I see when exporting to .png without rasterizing first - chunks taken out of shape borders. The bites do behave differently in the layout when I zoom in and out. Exporting to PDF isn't an option - the service I'm using for printing won't accept PDF files. (Using a different service is likewise not a viable option.) I found a really ugly workaround. It requires selecting the group of vector objects, copying and pasting them into an image viewer, then saving from there as PNG with transparency. Unfortunately, that means anywhere I use white in the image requires reimporting to Affinity to refill those areas, and exporting again. It's going to lengthen the process considerably. Of course, copying and pasting from Affinity means I get an image with different dimensions and dpi, but the same total pixels. I assume that's something to do with the Clipboard in Windows, rather than an issue with Affinity. I use vector objects because of a disability that has robbed me of the ability to draw by hand. If I can't export to a raster format without this issue, then I'll have to settle for doing nothing but nonrepresentational abstract work.
  8. I've worked out that it's something in the rasterization process. Unfortunately, I can't export to a different file format. Rasterizing and doing touch-ups isn't a viable option. If there's a solution for preventing this, I haven't found it. I guess I'm just going to have to abandon weeks of work and cut my losses.
  9. I spoke to soon - this is still a problem. My new master looks perfectly fine in Affinity when I view it at actual size. When I export to PNG, "bites" are taken out of the borders. I'd appreciate some guidance, though I think I'm going to just end up switching applications if I can't find a quick way around this problem.
  10. This is a sidebar to the topic of the original post. (R C-R didn't mention resampling vs not resampling in his question to me. Is it really necessary for us to go down this path?) What I would like is answers about my original question about keyboard shortcuts ceasing to work, and whether what I'm seeing in that regard is expected behavior in the application, or some sort of bug. Editing to add: As mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I've changed my mind about using a 6-inch x 6-inch image anyway.
