  1. many thanks for your input and the file! - it works for me like a workaround, but it works 😀 but... I'm afraid it's a bug; when I draw a H-shape and a W-shape it works without any compounds and filling mode. Just marking the shapes and choosing "subtract" - ready
  2. hello Gear Maker, many thanks for your repley ... ungroup etc I know..., but the fill mode was new to me and with Alternate selected it works fine but I think this workflow is new in 1.9; I haven't have this issue before; when I use normal shapes I get the right result without selecting Alternate filling
  3. I´d like to cut out (subtract) WORLD from HELLO. When using "subtract" I get a wrong result: WORLD is included in HELLO and not cutted out; I've tried it with text and curve-converted text. When I do it with normal shapes (e.g. rectangles) I get the appropriate result
  4. I have the same issue. I'm on a Macbook Pro 2017, Big Sur 11.0.1 and Affinity Apps 1.8.6
  5. Busenitz, you can use pdf if you want to - please look at my provided files here, Export setting was: PDF (for Export); also look at my screen of Export-Persona here If you like to use svg, you have to export 2 files: the pixel-images as 1 png (possibly make the outline invisible) and the vector elements as svg; in SSDE you have to drag the png into the vector shape; SSDE doesn't show up a bitmap-filled svg (see here)
  6. Busenitz, I've suggested to rasterize your image-layers to pixel-layers. In AD there is a difference between this layers, that will solve the transparency problem. Because you don't rasterize the vector elements there is no need to trace in SSDE. Possibly you have to active the cut lines of the vector elements (curve layers, e.g. the rectangle, banner shape, circle), just select this layers an set "cut" in SSDE. If you have all your design elements in one layer / as one pdf, the layers in SSDE will be that big size of the whole page size (I don't like this - it is a matter of taste ) Link to AD file (it is to big to post directly): https://www.dropbox.com/s/lq3c451ojq1ajp1/Male_superhaschi.afdesign?dl=0 Male_superhaschi.studio3 Rectangle new.pdf Donut new.pdf
  7. DianeF, there are no vector elements (=cutting lines in SIL-Studio) in your file and the SIL-app doesn't show up svg files that contains pixel elements. You have to vectorize your file. You can use the auto trace tool in SIL-Studio oder trace it manually (watch some youtube videos https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=affinity+designer+trace
  8. Busenitz, you can simple create a single png-file of all your separate images: export the group as png, if necessary make some layers invisible
  9. Busenitz, I have following suggestions: 1. group your designs in separate groups (happy-group, donut-group ...) 2. rasterise your images to have pixel-layers 3. avoid using clipping masks; just draw a shape (circle, rectangle ...) and place your image (and rasterised!) or fill the shape with the image (fill-tool -> type -> bitmap) 4. create separate export-slices for every single group and export single pdfs (happy.pdf, donut.pdf...)
  10. I create cutting designs using AD and do not have a (big) problem. The only thing is a shape filled with a bitmap - the filling isn't visible in Silhouette Studio. So I have the following workaround: 1. export the filled shape as svg 2. export the filled shape as png In SIL-Studio I open the svg and fill the empty shape with the png using drag&drop
  11. I think this is no help, but the barcode!!! (not the margin) has exactly your desired size
