  1. Ok great. Looking forward to getting this working. Thanks!
  2. Hi, I am generating svgs using the language R and specifically plotting using ggplot2 and outputting using the svglite graphic device. Generated a simple ggplot2 scatterplot and opening in Affinity Designer (v1.4.1) is perfect: https://github.com/tinyheero/svglite-affinity-designer/blob/master/figures/ggplot2_test-1.svg But when I combine multiple plots (using cowplot), the resultant svg comes out with two black boxes. The resultant svg can be found here: https://github.com/tinyheero/svglite-affinity-designer/blob/master/figures/cowplot_test-1.svg I've also included the .afdesign file of the cowplot svg file: https://github.com/tinyheero/svglite-affinity-designer/blob/master/afdesign/cowplot_test-1.afdesign
  3. Hi, Apologies if this question has been asked before, but I can't seem to find the answer. Is there a way to resize the canvas to what has been selected? I am coming from a Inkscape background where I am used to selecting objects and then using the "Resize page to drawing or selection" option (see attached screenshot). I can't seem to find this option in Affinity Designer. The best way I can think of right now is to select all, retrieve the dimensions of the selection, and then manually set it in "Document Setup -> Dimensions". Thanks
  4. Thank you for the replies. Much appreciated. I found this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpHYh6z8HDI) which seems to be what you guys are referring to. When I use the "Place Image Tool", I am able to arrange and edit. But as MEB mentioned, the final export is rasterized which is a problem. Many scientific journals (e.g. Nature, Blood, New England Journal of Medicine) require PDF/EPS outputs so that their staff can do the final layouts for publications. Is there a reason why the export function rasterizes the output? Is there anyway around this? Thanks
  5. Hi, I was wondering if Affinity Designer had the ability to have "linked graphics"? Specifically, the concept found in InDesign (https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/graphics-links.html). I recognize that Affinity Designer is not designed for this and this feature may probably be more suitable for Affinity Publisher? My problem is I am trying to generate scientific publication figures that often are multi-panel. Each panel in itself is a separate plot (that I would generate in some program like R). I can't find a way to easily link all these plots into one plot. In fact, I can't find a way for Affinity Designer to simply just embed/import a PDF into Affinity Designer document (there is the "place" option, but that rasterizes the image).
